Kroger’s Enhances Fuel Discount Program

The Kroger Co. is offering customers the ability to earn up to 15 cents off per gallon on fuel by accumulating credits through purchases made at the company’s U.S. stores.

Most of the fuel discount programs offered by Kroger and its family of stores reward customers with a minimum of 10 cents off per gallon of gas for every $100 they spend in a store, the company said. The fuel discount programs are available and transferable at Kroger stores under the following banners: Kroger, Baker’s, City Market, Dillons, Food 4 Less, Fred Meyer, Fry’s, Gerbes, Hilander, Jay C, King Soopers, Owen’s, Pay Less, QFC, Ralphs, Scott’s, and Smith’s stores.

Shoppers who use Kroger’s 1-2-3 REWARDS Mastercard can earn discounts up to 15 cents off per gallon of gas in participating markets.

“We are excited to make it easy for our customers to earn and redeem fuel discounts throughout our family of stores as the summer travel season begins,” said Rodney McMullen, vice chairman of Kroger. “Our customers asked us to expand this benefit and we have listened to them. This is another example of the many ways we at Kroger are investing in meaningful savings for our customers to help them stretch their household budgets farther – particularly when they need it the most.”

The company said the enhancement of its fuel-discount program is the latest in a series of initiatives introduced to help customers save money on groceries, healthcare and other household staples.

Its other incentives include:

  • Expanding Kroger’s $4 generic drug program to include 90-day prescriptions for only $10.
  • Launching a tax relief gift card program that offers customers free groceries when they turn their economic stimulus checks or direct deposits into Kroger gift cards.
  • Kroger’s growing line of quality private-label products offered at low prices found exclusively in the retailer’s family of stores.

    The expanded fuel-discount program is not available in some areas, including Alabama, Michigan and the Columbus, Ohio area.

    Kroger, headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, operates in 31 states under two dozen banners including Kroger, Ralphs, Fred Meyer, Food 4 Less, Fry’s, King Soopers, Scott’s, Smith’s, Dillons, QFC and City Market. The company has 782 convenience stores, 394 fine jewelry stores and 720 supermarket fuel centers, as well as 42 food-processing plants in the U.S.
