  • For those with HyVee and Casey's stores - Midwest

    Just got this from a gal who works at my credit union. I'm sure the select items will be crappy CW stuff, but it's definitely worth looking into. Here's the press release.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    HY-VEE, CASEY’S ANNOUNCE

    AGGRESSIVE FUEL SAVINGS PROGRAM FOR CUSTOMERS

    ANKENY, IA -- Hy-Vee, Inc. and Casey’s General Stores today announced the launch of a program that will allow customers to save $2 or more per gallon on gasoline purchases at all Hy-Vee and Casey’s stores.

    The new Fuel Saver program provides fuel discounts to shoppers who purchase grocery items featured in Hy-Vee’s weekly Fuel Saver ad. The discounts – ranging from two cents to 25 cents per item – are loaded onto the customer’s Fuel Saver card, which can be scanned at the pump at Hy-Vee and Casey’s stores to “roll down” the retail price of gasoline. Depending on how many items they buy, customers can save $2 or more per gallon on their fuel purchases each week.

    “Tough economic times continue to put a strain on the family budget, and we’re seeing this with our customers and the cost of fuel,” said Randy Edeker, Chairman and CEO of Hy-Vee. “The typical household today spends nearly $350 per month on gasoline. Anything we can do to help families save at the pump means more money for them to spend on other items they need.”

    The Fuel Saver program pairs one of the Midwest’s largest supermarket companies with one of the region’s largest convenience store chains. Senior leaders from both companies believe the historic collaboration will deliver significant value to their customers.

    “This program will reward consumers for everyday grocery purchases with lower prices at the pump,” said Casey’s President and CEO Robert J. Myers. “Casey’s is very excited about this partnership and the expected future benefits to the loyal customers of both Casey’s and Hy-Vee.”

    “Casey’s is the perfect partner for the Fuel Saver program,” Edeker said. “With more than 1,700 locations, the company is well-positioned to help us deliver value to Hy-Vee customers throughout our trade area.”

    Customers can enroll in the Fuel Saver program beginning the week of November 5th at any of the 234 Hy-Vee, Hy-Vee Drugstore, Hy-Vee Gas or Hy-Vee

    Mainstreet stores located in eight Midwestern states. Each week, 40 to 50 different products at Hy-Vee will be designated as Fuel Saver items. Customers will swipe their Fuel Saver cards at checkout to earn discounts, which are valid for 30 days from the date of purchase.

    “This program was designed to make it very easy and convenient for customers to redeem their discounts,” stated Myers. “I believe this is also an excellent way to introduce new customers to both Casey’s and Hy-Vee.”

    Edeker said Hy-Vee has offered a gasoline discount program at its convenience stores for many years, but the new Fuel Saver program provides several advantages for shoppers.

    “Fuel Saver allows customers to swipe a card and redeem their discounts right at the pump, which is a convenience many customers have requested,” he said. “It also offers the potential for much bigger savings when customers purchase a variety of popular items they buy every week.”

      Interesting. I get all of my gas from Casey’s and most of my groceries from Hy-Vee. So I will probably enroll.

        Same here. All gas at Casey's and about 97% of my groceries from HyVee. I do get milk from walmart b/c it's cheaper by about 50 cents per gallon. Oh, and my bottles of Lipton tea... cheaper by more than $3 at Walmart than my local HyVee.

        I just worry that it'll be sponsored by crappy food companies.

          I shudder to think about what foods will probably be getting the discount, but maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised.

            Hey all! I found some primal-esque foods that are part of this program. I got two bags of frozen chicken breasts worth 6 cents off each gallon of gas. They had other things on there that I was surprised to find too. Worth looking into for sure.

              I haven't signed up. Looking through the ads I haven't stumbled across any qualifying foods that I would buy.

                Our tight budget restricts me from buying more than conventional meats, so I see benefit. *shrug*

                  I occasionally buy chicken at Hy Vee (Smart or Bare, although it probably isn't much better than the rest) if I don't have anything thawed. I mostly just get my produce, Greek yogurt and dark chocolate there.

                      They had burger at 3 cents per gallon this week. Scored 12 cents off per gallon for that purchase (got 4 pounds). That was the only discount I saw this week.

                      UniqueTII, which chocolate do you buy?

                          I wondered... I've gotten that a few times too, despite it containing soy. Thought maybe you had found one there that doesn't contain soy.

                          Thanks.

                            The organic 85% doesn't have soy, if I recall correctly. All of their others do.
