If a store offered Quickpicks as rewards, would you shop there?

An idea just hit me, maybe our local Shoprite should offer Lottery Quickpicks as loyalty rewards instead of free turkeys or coupons you dont get to use. If your local store offered this, would you shop with them ?

    I wouldn't shop with a store just because they offered QP's, but if they were on par with Publix (pricewise, cleanliness-wise, and customer service-wise) then yes, I'd go there over going to Publix.

    The crappy coupons that Kroger or Winn Dixie gives me I never use. It's always for something or some brand I have no interest in. And I only go to Kroger if I have no choice, so their coupons definitely aren't a lure for me. If they offered QP's instead of the useless coupons, I'd probably be inclined to stop there to pick up groceries more often instead of driving the extra miles to get to Publix like I do now. 

    But if Publix offered QP's, Kroger would never see me again.

            Edmond only has three grocery store chains Walmart, Homeland(use to be Albertson) also very expensive and Crest where I shop but they don't sell lottery tickets.

              Depends- if they gave 1qp  for $25-$30 sales, forget it.

                Years ago there was a car dealer in a city near here that gave out bunches of lottery tickets with each car sold.  I don't remember any of his customers winning a jackpot but he won a couple.  The first one he shared with all his employees and the second one he kept for himself, sold the dealership and moved to Florida.

                  Depends.  If they gave a QP for every 2 dollars I spent I'd probably go to Fred Meyer more often.  If they only gave one QP per $25, which is much more realistic, I'd be losing money to shop there.  I'd stick with WinCo and save 30% on my grocery bill which I could use to buy my own lottery tickets.

                    Yeah, Publix is my favorite grocery store. When it comes to customer service, no one but Costco compares to them. I've been to only 2 Krogers and they both sucked. Their customer service reminded me of Seinfeld's Soup Nazi. 

                    I shopped at Meijer when I visited Michigan, and that was a SUPERmarket. It had everything.One stop shopping, food, furniture, clothes, electronics, school supplies. With that type of grocery store competition, I think the free lottery tickets gimmick is a good idea. Definitely better than the sucky coupons.

                      Quickpicks are cheap and most of them are losers. I'd rather they offered me a bag of Lays chips + Arizona drink. My fav snacks Naughty

                            I love losing QPs, great fun. I played our lucky 13 line for tonight's PB draw.

                              I think losing for many years makes winning feel heavenly lol like finding a $20 that you didn't know you had
