  • What is Bowman's Bonus?

    As a member of the program you will receive one email per week with sale items and other promotions. You will periodically receive other emails making you aware of special time sensitive sales, events or recall info. You will also receive an email any time you earn a Bowman's Bonus offer.
  • Can each family member have their own Bowman's Bonus account?
    Yes, each family member can be a Bowman's Bonus member. The best way to do this is sign up one family member, the person that will be the primary account holder. You can add other family members to the account under secondary users.
  • How many Bowman's Bonus cards do I get when I sign up?
    When signing up you will not be getting a card because the Bowman's Bonus program does not have a physical card. If you sign up for the program at the checkstand you will be given a temporary registration card that can be thrown away once your profile has been completed.
  • How does the Bowman's Bonus Points program work?
    Bowman's Bonus Points is an ongoing program that is based on quarters (13 weeks). You will accumulate Bowman's Bonus Points for 11 weeks and then have two weeks to redeem your surprise. You will earn points for every dollar spent. This excludes the purchase of prescriptions, fuel, money orders and gift cards. On the morning of each redemption day, you will receive an email with your surprise for the quarter. Be sure to give us your current email address so you won’t miss out!
