GasBuddy Joins Forces With Fuel Retailers for Gas Giveaway
BOSTON — GasBuddy will offer drivers thousands of gallons of free gas in multiple U.S. cities throughout the year as part of its exclusive 2017 Tank Takeover Series. It kicks off in Houston on Feb. 1 at a Corner Store location.
Drivers who have the free GasBuddy app on their smartphones and have created GasBuddy profiles will receive $20 or more in free fuel per vehicle. The event will also have special drink coupons, food samples and giveaways so drivers can "fuel their journey for the road ahead."
The 2017 GasBuddy Tank Takeover Series is based on last year's series of events that occurred throughout 2016 in cities such as Charlotte, Denver, Los Angeles, Phoenix, and Sydney, Australia. Thousands of people attended each GasBuddy Tank Takeover, which created around-the-block lines, increased food traffic and more than $100,000 worth of free media coverage per event, the company said.
"GasBuddy Tank Takeovers are at the forefront of proven experiential marketing, bringing the digital and physical world together in a way we've never seen before," stated GasBuddy CEO Walt Doyle. "We are tapping into our network of more than 60 million passionate GasBuddy users and providing them with a unique experience of the modern-day gas station. We're excited to have Corner Store as a partner for our first event in 2017 and look forward to working with other great convenience retailers to showcase how this $575 billion industry continues to evolve to better serve the community from excellence in services to expanded offerings."
Exact times and locations of Tank Takeover events will be revealed to GasBuddy members first via the mobile app. More information about the series is available at www.gasbuddy.com/tanktakeover.
