• Ahold-owned Martin’s Food Markets announced that it has launched “its first mobile application for iPhone and Android devices. Customers can now download the mobile application for free at the App Store or Android Market ... The mobile app syncs with a customer’s BonusCard, to provide access to his or her online account, allowing them to check current point totals for gas rewards and A+ School Rewards in addition to viewing personalized savings offers. Once customers have built their shopping list online at www.martinsfoods.com, they will be able to view and check off the list using their mobile device while shopping.

“Customers can also access store circulars to check out every day savings on the go and get directions to the nearest Martin’s.”
