New food savings program eases the pain at the pump too | Business
Grocery shopping will not only help you feed your family, but now it will also help you put gas in your car.
Hy –Vee and Casey’s General Stores have teamed up to provide the new fuel saver program starting December 5th. The program provides fuel discounts to shoppers who purchase grocery items featured in Hy-Vee’s weekly Fuel Saver ad. The discounts, ranging from two cents to 25 cents per item, are then loaded onto the customer’s Fuel Saver card. Customers can then scan their card at the pump and watch their savings bring down the retail price of gasoline. Depending on how many items they buy, customers can save $2 or more per gallon on their fuel purchases each week.
“This program will reward consumers for everyday grocery purchases with lower prices at the pump,” said Casey’s President and CEO Robert J. Myers. “Casey’s is very excited about this partnership and the expected future benefits to the loyal customers of both Casey’s and Hy-Vee.”
According to Hy-Vee, the average shopper in test markets saved 28 cents a gallon but many saved 60 to 80 cents and some lucky customers paid only a penny per gallon.
Hy-vee shoppers can use the card at any Hy-Vee gas station as well as at any of the 1,700 Casey’s General Stores locations in the Midwest.
