The last day to earn the perks will be Feb. 13.
Giant Eagle is ending foodperks! and adding extra incentive to use its fuelperks! program, according a press release from the Pennsylvania-based company.

The last day to earn foodperks! will be Feb. 13 and discounts must be redeemed by May 31. The foodperks! program is being…
