Walmart Adds, Expands

Tesco's Loyalty Challenge

The U.K. retailer is launching a six-week shopping challenge for 3 million Clubcard holders. If they take part, they'll have a series of personalized, AI-powered challenges they can complete for extra membership rewards.

7-Eleven Tetris

The convenience store chain is collaborating with The Tetris Co. to celebrate the game's 40th anniversary. Buying qualifying items earns chances to win limited edition items, and 7-Eleven is also selling merchandise tie-ins.

Walgreens & Kimberly-Clark

The drugstore chain is partnering with Kimberly-Clark to combat period poverty. For a limited time, feminine hygiene products are being donated to community organizations when a qualifying purchase is made. 

Asda Collaborates

The U.K. retailer is relaunching its retailer media network. It's also teamed with Diageo to install digital screens at several convenience locations, allowing customers to interact with the technology, choose their spirits and make a purchase.
