Perhaps they changed their habit and amount with junk mail bombings, but you still get 1 Migros magazin per week.

I don`t realy see an advantage in collecting points and profiling consumer habits while i still don`t get duck breasts.
I was at Migros Neumarkt in Altstetten yesterday and they had duck breasts on sale... they looked delicious, I was thinking of getting some but I have never cooked them before.

Why I don't mind having a Cumulus card:
1)The Migros magazine comes in handy to see which products have 20X Cumulus points during the week.
2) You get 2% off your gas bill at all Migros and some Shell gas stations
3) During the month of Feb and March all Migros's in the Zürich region are offering 2X Cumulus points every Wednesday on all of your shopping.
4) You can collect Cumulus points at many places including EXLIBRIS and OFFICE WORLD.
5) They have excellent travel offers - here are some wellness examples.
6) As a Cumulus member, they send you special coupons each quarter that only Cumulus members receive.

I am in a household of 2 persons and we spend about 600-1000chf on Groceries/household items each month, I receive usually 50CHF or more back each quarter from Migros.

I've just got mine. Filled in the form online and have stuck one of the stickers on my coop card

Shame the coop card doesn't come with stickers as well; I think it's a fantastic idea. Tesco/Sainsbury etc should copy it!

Re: Migros Cumulus Card

I wish they had something like in Texas at "Kroger"....For every $100 spent during a week on food, you save $5 at the gas pumps and get 25% off you next purchase of $50 or more....I usually get about 45-50 miles of fuel and my Ice creams and Pizza's end up being free!!....but that's Texas and i will be sure to fill out a form for the Cumulus card when I get there!

on a side note....If I got the creditcard version how much can you really save?

Re: Migros Cumulus Card

In Coop City branches you can pay for your goods with your accumulated points. Much better than exchanging them for catalogue items that are no way good value and you really don't want or need.

Some things from the Coop catalogue are not bad... especially if you get them from the "Fundgrube" here you can find things from last year's catalogue at a fraction of what they were originally going for.

Re: Migros Cumulus Card

This seems to be an old thread, but maybe someone knows the answer to this. I requested a (non credit card) cumulus card online since I couldn't locate the appropriate form in the store. A few days later, I received a floppy, orange
"Anteilschein/Mitgleiderausweis" card in the mail. It doesn't look like the cumulus card that I was coveting, and I'm not sure what it is for. I translated the letter that it came with, and it seems that I am now a part of the Migros Cooperative (?) Has anyone else received such a card?

Looks like you entered your information at the wrong place and now you own part of Migros. You can get now some special membership deals, vote in Cooperative elections and votes, get the weekly Migros magazin, and own CHF 10 worth of Migros.

Here is the Cumulus Member Application form. There is no need to be a Migros Cooperative Member.

Re: Migros Cumulus Card

Well, I don't shop much in Migros because I can't find that much there. But

- until end of March there are x2 points each Thursday
- each quoter you get to 5x points to spend on wished days with an interval

Coop has x5 and x10 points much more often.

Re: Migros Cumulus Card

Yes, but with Coop you have to buy items from their catalogue. With Migros you collect points and get vouchers to spend as you want. I don't shop there much but I usually collect enough vouchers to buy the Christmas turkey with. You can also collect points when you fill up at their petrol stations or at Socar ones that have a Migrolino store.

You can buy from catalogue, but not necessarily. You can buy any non-food item from coop-city, e.g. soap, toys, anything. Sometimes you can pay bio or some other products with points.

... I am now a part of the Migros Cooperative (?) ...
Technically speaking, Migros is not a corporation, but a cooperative. And more specifically, Migros is a cooperative of cooperatives: each region has its own Migros cooperative (e.g. Migros Genossenschaft Zürich for Zurich), unified under an umbrella cooperative based in Zurich. (At Limmatplatz, which is why the Limmatplatz Migros grocery store is used as a test store for new ideas.)

Coop, as its name implies, is also a cooperative. It is a single cooperative based in Basel.


In practice, though, they both behave basically like any corporation. I haven't really figured out what the cooperative structure does in practice.

I got the floppy orange one and then a few days later got the cumulus card - I'm guessing you get the Anteilschein/Mitgleiderausweis if you have ticked a certain box when you filled in the application for the cumulus.
