The app started off great when it launched. Coupons were available for multiple brands of products. Over time these were eliminated and coupons now exist only for Selection and Irresistibles products. As of a couple updates ago, the app no longer launched. Instead it gets caught in some sort of boot loop in which you are the splash screen, it tries to start, then goes back to the splash screen. Rinse and repeat until you force close it. The app is unusable in this condition.

Remove turning your phone to see the barcode. It makes literally no sense as a feature since the barcode can be tapped in the corner at all times. This just makes it impossible to use your phone while reaching for items and pushing a cart. Absolutely abysmal UI decision.

App is horrible. It offers no real functionally other than to make it easier for them to track your purchase. It is very frustrating not being able to disable the bar code that appears when you turn you phone sideways. And it's way too sensitive. I try and use their store as little as possible these days due to other anti consumer practices.
