Hy-Vee, Casey’s announce fuel-savings program for customers
ANKENY — Hy-Vee Inc. and Casey’s General Stores have announced the launch of a program allowing customers to save $2 or more per gallon on gasoline purchases at all Hy-Vee and Casey’s stores.
The new Fuel Saver program provides fuel discounts to shoppers who purchase grocery items featured in Hy-Vee’s weekly Fuel Saver ad. The discounts, ranging from 2 cents to 25 cents per item, are loaded onto the customer’s Fuel Saver card, which can be scanned at the pump at Hy-Vee and Casey’s stores to “roll 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.
“Tough economic times continue to put a strain on the family budget, and we’re seeing this with our customers and the cost of fuel,” said Randy Edeker, chairman and CEO of Hy-Vee. “The typical household today spends nearly $350 per month on gasoline. Anything we can do to help families save at the pump means more money for them to spend on other items they need.”
The Fuel Saver program pairs one of the Midwest’s largest supermarket companies with one of the region’s largest convenience store chains. Senior leaders from both companies believe the historic collaboration will deliver significant value to their customers.
Customers can enroll in the Fuel Saver program beginning the week of Nov. 5 at any of the 234 Hy-Vee, Hy-Vee Drugstore, Hy-Vee Gas or Hy-Vee Mainstreet stores located in eight Midwestern states. Each week, 40 to 50 different products at Hy-Vee will be designated as Fuel Saver items. Customers will swipe their Fuel Saver cards at checkout to earn discounts, which are valid for 30 days from the date of purchase.
Edeker said Hy-Vee has offered a gasoline discount program at its convenience stores for many years, but the new Fuel Saver program allows customers to swipe a card and redeem their discounts right at the pump and has the potential for bigger savings when customers purchase a variety of items.
