PDI Fuel Rewards Program Doubles Membership in Two Years
The gas retailer has hit a major milestone, reaching over 20 million loyalty members. “Consumers have shown their preference for cents-per-gallon rewards time and again through changes in their spending behaviors,” says PDI Marketing Cloud Solutions Senior Vice President Brandon Logsdon. “The brands that participate in the program see the power of the currency and the flexibility of the platform to meet their specific marketing goals. Our 20 million Fuel Rewards members are a testament to the success of Instant Gold Status that launched at Shell in June 2017 and the program’s ability to drive consumer participation, which translates to incremental revenue for participating brands.”

Customer Experience
 
Walmart Is Using AI-Powered Cameras to Prevent Theft at Checkout Lanes
Big Brother is watching (some of) Walmart’s checkout lanes and saving the retailer a pretty penny. “The system runs on cameras that watch as items move across the register. If an unusual activity occurs, such as an item moving into a bag without being scanned, a checkout attendant will be notified to take action. Missed Scan Detection was designed to help reduce theft and other losses, a problem that has cost US retailers up to $47 billion in 2017.”
 
Restaurants Push for Lower Delivery Fees
The space has gotten competitive, and now restaurants are pushing for services like Grubhub to reduce their fees. “Restaurants were quick to sign up with delivery companies such as Grubhub Inc. and Postmates Inc. to reach more customers. Now, growing competition in the delivery business is emboldening many restaurants to seek lower rates from such companies.”
