ANKENY, Iowa — A supermarket chain and a convenience store chain in the Midwest have launched a program that they said would allow customers to save on gasoline at all their stores.
Hy-Vee and Casey's General Stores announced the Fuel Saver program, which they said would provide fuel discounts to shoppers who purchase grocery items features in Hy-Vee's weekly Fuel Saver advertisement. Discounts ranging from 2 to 25 cents per item are loaded onto a customer's Fuel Saver card, which can be scanned at the pump at Hy-Vee and Casey's stores, allowing customers to save $2 or more per gallon each week, depending on how many items they buy.
"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," Hy-Vee chairman and CEO Randy Edeker said. "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."
