Rutter's Gives Away Another Free Year of Gas
YORK, Pa. -- Arthur Bankert of Fawn Grove, Pa., is the sixth winner of a free year of gas in Rutter's Fuel Up Free contest. When the contest wraps up in September, the convenience store chain will have given away a year's worth of gas to a total of eight Rutter's customers.
With several qualifying items posted on the Rutter's website each month, it's easy to see how a frequent customer like Bankert put the odds of winning in his favor, the company said.
"I stop in for a cup of coffee almost every morning, and some mornings I meet a few people at the store to sit and talk," Bankert said.
Customers must scan their card when they make a purchase from the designated list of qualified items to be entered into the drawing for the Fuel Up Free contest.
The Rutter's Rewards loyalty program started in October 2009. Nearly 1,600 items at each of the chain's 56 convenience stores has a rewards value ranging from one cent to 10 cents per gallon. Each time one of these items is purchased, the customer nets the reward amount in cash savings on a purchase of up to 20 gallons of gas. Each reward is redeemable immediately, but also valid for 60 days from the date on which it is earned.
Rutter's Farm Stores is a third-generation family-owned business based in York, Pa.
