Once you enter a SCAN IT! store:
1. Enable your phone’s Wi-Fi setting, select & connect to: ScanIt_Mobile.
2. Open the app to start a shopping trip.
For subsequent shopping trips, you MUST turn on Wi-Fi when entering the store to automatically detect the ScanIt_Mobile wireless network to start shopping.
Select the green SCAN button: Line up the camera window to the product barcode. The camera will autofocus, scan, add the item to your virtual cart; you can then place it in your bag.
> Be sure to scan every individual barcode. This includes buy one get one free items, multiples of the same product or products that have different flavors. All savings will deduct automatically when you total your order.
Weighed items should be taken to a self-service scale in the Produce department - identified with an easyWEIGH! sign. Select your item & scan the printed label.
Scanned items will be added to your virtual ‘cart’ & can be removed by swiping to delete. Your cart shows your total, total personalized offer savings & item details.
> Certain items may require you to show ID at checkout. Eg: alcohol, tobacco & some over the counter medications. Please hold these items aside once scanned.
When you are ready to pay for your scanned & bagged items, locate any self-checkout or dedicated SCAN IT! lane (at select locations). The checkout process will now transfer your virtual ‘cart’ from the phone to the register.
• From the open Cart tab, tap the CHECKOUT button.
• SCAN the END OF ORDER barcode on the sign near the register monitor.
• The app will update while the register is performing checkout.
• Swipe your GIANT BONUSCARD at the checkout register to transfer your order.
• Follow the prompts on the register, select payment option & complete payment.
> SCAN IT! Mobile users will still require the use of their GIANT BONUSCARD to complete their purchase. This ensures your cart & savings are credited to the right account.
Periodically, you may see a CASHIER ASSISTANCE notice during the checkout process. This is a random “quick scan” as stipulated in the Terms & Conditions. The quick scan process ensures that all items are properly accounted for during a SCAN IT! shopping trip. Your cooperation with this review process is appreciated.
What's New in Version 15.40.00
Does not have my store
To use the app you have to choose a preferred store but I do not recognize ANY of the stores they list for my state (VA) and there only 6 total and there are like 6 giants within a semi- reasonable driving distance of me, not to mention the entire state! Long story short, I can't even judge the app because I can't get past the registration. My dad's theory is that our normal giant has the scanning system in house, but it is basically unusable, which is why I was excited to find this app...
Able to use, but...
Make sure your battery is fully charged. It will lose wi-fi at slightest provocation. I also was unable to checkout when it crashed during a busy rush and had to scan all my items over in regular check out, just to find that my card was already "in-use".
So did it check out or not?
The world may never know. :(
Why Does Giant Even Bother?
Giant's IT is always an exercise in frustration, but this app does not seem to talk to their other app, which already knows where I live and what my preferred store is. Instead, it presents me with a list of stores that are enormously far away.
