With Downtime Dollars, your brand can spend even more time with ShopRite Price Club Plus loyalty members — more than a minute per brand experience on average versus traditional ads’ average of just a few seconds.

Part of what makes this digital channel so powerful is that these loyalty members are earning money on their Price Plus Club cards as they spend time with featured brands. Consumers enjoy spending time with brands like yours.

GSK finds that the brand experience “gives us a forum to share educational messaging with our consumers in a fun and engaging way.” Educate shoppers about products, highlight promotions, drive more coupon usage and boost in-store or online sales.

You receive item-level purchase data results for your promoted SKUs as well as available brand studies.

Brand experiences can be a combination of videos, photos, product trivia, offers and calls to action. They take up the full screen real estate within ShopRite.com and the ShopRite mobile app.

Content is often sourced from brands’ social media or website content. They are custom created for brands and can be live within hours.
