Giant Eagle introduces shopping app for its Advantage Card members

PITTSBURGH — Giant Eagle last month launched an app for users of Android devices that's tied to the grocer's loyalty program. So far, the app has been downloaded as many as 5,000 times.

The app enables shoppers to peruse the weekly ad circular on their mobile phones or computers. The grocer's eOffers (digital coupons) can be added to the customer's Giant Eagle Advantage Card.

The app also includes a shopping list function where shoppers can add items to the list from their shopping history, scan an item bar code or add ingredients from a library of thousands of recipes.

There also is a menu planner function.
