When was the last time you paid under $1.00 to gas up your car? For many customers of Smith’s Food & Drug Stores, the answer is “Today!” thanks to fuel points combined with the current low price of retail fuel in many parts of the country.
“Customers are seeing great prices at the pump that haven’t been seen in years,” said Zane Day, Smith’s vice president of sales and merchandising. “Combine that with all the ways you can save on fuel at Smith’s, and many of our customers are filling their tanks for less than a dollar per gallon at our pumps. Fuel points are one of the ways we say thank you to our loyal customers every day.”
Smith’s currently operates 87 fuel center locations throughout its seven states of operation (Arizona-4; Idaho-4; Montana-3; Nevada-18; New Mexico-16; Utah -41; Wyoming-1) making it easy to take advantage of the additional savings.
Win Free Fuel for a Month with #FuelPointsSweeps
Through the month of February, Smith’s, along with the Kroger family of stores across the country, are offering customers a chance to win free fuel for a month by sharing photos that answer “How Low Can You Go?” with fuel points at company fuel centers.
Customers are invited to post on Smith’s Facebook page with the hashtag #FuelPointsSweeps; or post on Instagram or Twitter by tagging Kroger and using the hashtag #FuelPointsSweeps; to be automatically entered to win. Forty-four final winners will be selected at random during the month of February and awarded “free fuel for a month” – a $200 gift card.
There are many ways to save on fuel at Smith’s and Kroger’s family of stores*:
Customers can earn 1 fuel point for every $1 in groceries purchased, redeemable in Smith’s supermarket fuel centers and company convenience store locations, as well as participating Shell fuel stations.
Buy Gift Cards, Use Like Cash, Save on Fuel. Most gift cards earn double points every day – for every purchase of $50 in gift cards from Smith’s Gift Card Mall, customers receive 100 fuel points. Customers can also earn double fuel points on No-Contract Wireless Phones and Airtime Cards.
Every qualifying prescription earns customers 50 fuel points, as does participation in Smith’s Customer 1st Survey.
When they use the Kroger REWARDS Visa®, cardholders can earn an additional 5 cents off the cost of a gallon when they redeem points. New cardholders can save 25 cents a gallon during their first three months as cardholders when they redeem at least 100 fuel points. Certain limitations and conditions apply.
