When buying groceries, you can now use health-e-basket—a nutrition-focused app that encourages users to make healthier choices. The app provides nutrition scores for items you purchase, suggests healthier alternatives and offers savings on healthy products by utilizing loyalty/reward programs available at participating grocery stores. It also provides personalized nutritional information and recipes based on data provided by the user. BB&T has partnered with Inmar, another national company based in Winston-Salem, to provide this app to all associates free of charge.
Your health-e-basket Score
One of the main components of the app is the health-e-basket score. This score measures the nutritional value of items found at the grocery store on a scale from 0 (unhealthy) to 100 (healthy). Not only is there a score for individual products within the app, but each trip you make to the grocery store is also scored. This allows you to see individual product nutrition information and helps you track your progress toward healthier buying habits over time.
The app can also alert you when there are healthier alternatives to items you have purchased and rewards healthy choices with cash back and instant savings on products with healthier scores.
Offers and Savings
Once you start using health-e-basket, you'll be encouraged to make healthier choices with a variety of savings on products that have high health-e-basket scores. You can receive savings through cashback offers or instant offers.
Instant offers are applied as a discount to your purchase at the checkout. Cash back offers are applied to your cash rewards balance after purchase. Once your cash rewards balance reaches $10, you can transfer the funds directly to your bank or PayPal account.
When you find an offer that you'd like to use, select Activate before your next trip to the grocery store, and scan your loyalty card at the checkout to receive your savings.
