Merryfield Rewards Families for Eating Well

Earn points on all the better-for-you brands you're already purchasing.

By Amy Ghiglieri, Publisher, Macaroni Kid Frederick November 18, 2020

Years ago I used to be quite the couponer. It was like a game to me to see how much I could save on each grocery trip. However, one day as I was looking at my grocery store receipt and getting all excited seeing the ‘savings’ line, it hit me that while I might be saving money the products I was buying were not healthy. Suddenly, those savings no longer added up. It was like I had put a price tag on my family’s health. I tried for the next few weeks to find coupons and ways to save on better-for-you brands, but had no luck. Just like that, my love for couponing was over. I deleted the savings apps on my phone and got rid of my paper coupons. It was all pointless if I was sacrificing the health of my family.

Recently Merryfield reached out to Mac Kid publishers and asked us to try out their new rewards app where you can earn points for gift cards to popular retailers. Scanning the brands featured in the app, I found so many I recognized as ones that are focused on quality, clean ingredients. Brands that I’m already buying like Stonyfield, Justin’s, Orgain, EO | Everyone, PrimalKitchen, Rao’s Homemade, etc. Finally, I was intrigued by their ‘Shop clean. Get rewarded.’ philosophy and decided to give Merryfield a try - and I'm so glad I did.

Merryfield provides moms like me with the security of knowing we're feeding our families products made from real ingredients. All the brands featured in the app meet the standards defined by the Merryfield Clean Council, a group of industry experts who helped create the quality standards at Whole Foods Market and BeautyCounter. There's no better feeling than knowing you're choosing the right items for your family - and getting rewarded for doing so!

I downloaded the Merryfield app, activated some boosted offers in the app for my favorite brands and headed out on my weekly Target trip to pick up some easy breakfast and snack options. Merryfield is currently featuring so many products my family already uses. I appreciated knowing that I wouldn't even have to sway from my original shopping list in order to start racking up rewards points.

Thanks to Merryfield, this week I was rewarded for all of my regular purchases. My morning breakfast is always a protein shake made from Califia Farms Almond Milk, Vital Proteins Collagen Powder, Chocolate Orgain Protein Powder, spinach and a banana. I found every single one of those branded items in the app. I was practically giddy realizing all the rewards points I would earn without even having to change my preferred products.

My kids and I love pairing Stoneyfield Yogurt and Purely Elizabeth granola to together with fruit for a protein packed meal or snack. 

Justin’s Peanut Butter is a staple at our house - it’s our go to afternoon snack with apple slices. When I’m craving something sweet and I’m on the go, I always grab a Justin’s Dark Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Protein Bar. Smooth and just the right amount of sweet without any of the garbage traditional protein bars have in them, it’s my guilt free treat that gives me energy to keep on going. In fact, as soon as I loaded my groceries I grabbed a bar for the ride home.

I will be using my Merryfield rewards towards gift cards to use to save on holiday shopping. In addition to being excited about my potential rewards, I value knowing that Merryfield donates 1% of their revenue to support No Kid Hungry’s mission to end child hunger. This matters now more than ever as new estimates show that 1 in 4 kids this year could face hunger.
