One day after Giant Eagle officials announced a 20-cent fuelperks! promotion, Shop 'n Save officials contacted Patch to tell us about their stores' 20-cent Pump Perks happening during the same time duration.
Shop 'n Save shoppers will receive 20 cents off per gallon of gas for every $50 that they spend on groceries from May 16 through 29.
The limited time promotion aims to double customers' savings at the pump in advance of one of the busiest travel weekends of the year. According to TripAdvisor's 2013 Summer Travel Survey, one out every three people will drive between 100 and 200 miles to reach their destination this Memorial Day weekend.
"This is the time when people are gearing up for long trips and when gas prices tend to rise, as well," said Bill Lipsky, director of merchandising for SUPERVALU, which supplies the independently owned and operated Shop 'n Save stores. "Summer is the time for picnics, cookouts, parties and vacations. We want to be sure to provide our customers with savings on everything they'll need most in-store and on the road with the season rapidly approaching."
There's a Shop 'n Save located at 93 Joseph St. in north Baldwin Borough.
