Thanks to fuel points earned by buying groceries, combined with current low prices of retail gasoline in the area, The Kroger Co. says its customers could pay less than $1 per gallon to fill up their tanks.
In fact, Kroger is now challenging its customers to see how low they can drop their price per gallon. The retailer has launched a Fuel Points Sweepstakes on social media to win free fuel for a month. The prize is a $200 gift card.
“It’s been years since we’ve seen these kinds of prices at the pump,” said Sukanya Madlinger, president of Kroger’s Cincinnati/Dayton Division, in a statement. “When combined with all the ways our customers can earn fuel points, we are able to thank them for their loyalty and offer fuel savings that are unprecedented.”
The contest began Monday and goes through Feb. 21, according to the company. Kroger customers can participate by sharing photos that answer “How Low Can You Go?” with fuel points at company fuel centers, according to the company.
The rules read that customers can post photos on Kroger’s Facebook page with the hashtag #FuelPointsSweeps; or post on Instagram or Twitter, tag Kroger and use 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 a $200 gift card.
Kroger’s Cincinnati/Dayton Division currently operates 71 fuel center locations in the region.
Cincinnati-based Kroger customers can earn 1 fuel point for every $1 in groceries purchased, redeemable in nearly all supermarket fuel centers, as well as participating Shell fuel stations.
