Morrisons has confirmed a major change in all its UK supermarkets next week.
Any shoppers with a Morrisons More Loyalty Card will be affected.
Morrisons shoppers will no longer be able to collect points through its additional program from next week as part of a major shake-up of the chain’s reward program, Mirror reports.
Under the current plan, customers receive five points for every 1 they spend – 5,000 points worth £ 5 vouchers at the supermarket.
But it will be discontinued from May 10 – i.e. May 9 is the last day to collect points – due to a major change in its loyalty association.
Instead of getting points, shoppers will receive digital coupons through its Morrisons More app, which can be used for instant storage in stores.
The supermarket says these will be customized, so they should usually be based on what you buy in stores.

As part of the shake-up, Morrisons will stop making physical extra cards – meaning if you lose or damage it, it won’t be replaced.
However, customers can still use their current card from May 10 – but again, you will not be collecting points on it and you will need more usage to activate offers.
The cut-off point for requesting any points you created before the changes came is August 9, 2021.
Vouchers can be retrieved through the application or through the Morrisons website or by printing at the store.
Once you request them, they are valid for 56 weeks.
Since you can only get vouchers for multiples of £ 5 from Morrisons, the remaining points that cannot be circled up to this amount will be lost.
For example, if you have a balance of 6,000 points, you can redeem 5,000 points for a 5 point voucher, leaving the remaining 1,000 points blank.
If your £ 5 vouchers are set to print automatically at the store, they will still appear when you scan the next card.

On its website, Morrisons said: “With Morrisons More, we are always asking our valued customers to take feedback on how to enhance the experience.
“From what we have heard, you want your rewards, including discounts and cash, to be immediate at your next store.
“We know you want to give back to your local community and support environmental causes such as the absence of paper and plastic where possible.”
What other supermarket loyalty programs are there?
Most supermarkets have a loyalty plan, and they are generally free to register.
Iceland: You do not collect points with the Iceland Bonus Card – instead you will be charged with it to spend in stores, and the supermarket will give you £ 1 for every 20 you save. However, your money is not protected with this loyalty program in the unlikely event that Iceland went bust.
Ms: Instead of collecting points, the Sparks loyalty program also offers instant rewards. Treats from the supermarket can be small things like free bags of Percy pigs or even your shopping is paid for by M&S.
Sainsbury’s: Sainsbury’s shoppers can use the Honey Loyalty program in stores. Honey is also used in other stores and online retailers such as Argos and eBay. A honey point is worth 0.5p, which means it will turn out to be 50p to spend 100 points.
Tesco: Tesco Club Card members get one point for every 1 they spend in store and online or a point for every 2 they spend on fuel. Points can also be collected through Tesco Bank and Tesco Mobile.
Waitrose: myWaitrose customers also do not collect points on their expenses – instead you get free hot drinks and other discounts in stores. Products that offer discounts against you are usually based on your regular spending habits.
