Support PTO: Register Your Kroger Card!

How to Register Your Kroger Plus Card and Link It to the King PTO

These instructions are for Kroger shoppers who have a Kroger Plus Card. (It is not a gift card, and it does not carry a balance.) If you do not have one, then you can get one at the Kroger Customer Service desk if you wish. To activate it immediately, you will need to use it at least once.

  1. In your web browser, go to

  2. Click on "Create an account" near the upper right-hand corner.

  3. Fill in your e-mail address and create a password, then click "save and continue."

  4. Fill in a zip code, such as 48105, and click "find stores."

  5. Choose a store from the dropdown list and click "save and continue."

  6. Select the little round "button" in front of the words "Yes, I have a Kroger Plus Card." This will cause the screen to change so that you can complete step 7.

  7. Fill in your Kroger Plus Card Number--it's the string of digits under the barcode on the back of your Kroger Plus Card. Please do not include any spaces. Also fill in your last name and zip code and click "save and continue."

  8. Select any boxes you wish for receiving e-mails (or not), and click "save and continue."

  9. Select the box in front of "*I have read and agree to the Terms and Conditions" and click "complete registration."

  10. The next screen asks you to check your e-mail.

  11. When you log in to your e-mail account and look in your inbox, there should be an e-mail from Kroger. When you open it, click on the link after the phrase "Please confirm your e-mail address and selected preferences by clicking the following link:"

  12. Now you have been redirected to the Kroger website. Click on "Log in to your account."

  13. Type in your e-mail address and password and click "sign in."

  14. Click on the last line under the Account Settings tab, which is "Community Rewards." This will cause the Community Rewards section to expand so that you can complete step 15.

  15. Now click on "Edit Community Rewards Program Information."

  16. In the box under "Find Your Organization" type the following: king pto then click "search."

  17. You should now see M. L. KING PTO under "Select Your Organization." Here's the important part: Select the little round "button" in front of M. L. KING PTO. Then click "save changes." Hooray! That was a lot of hoops to jump through. Thank you so much! Now, every time your Kroger Plus Card is swiped at checkout, 5% of the purchase amount will go to the King PTO.

  18. After saving, the screen should have returned to the Account Settings tab. To verify that M. L. KING PTO has been selected, click on "Community Rewards" again.

  19. If you see it there, you're done! If you don't see it, please try repeating the steps starting with step 15. Thanks again!
