LANHAM, Md. — Sunoco gas stations on the East Coast are joining Safeway's Gas Rewards retail fuel network.
The partnership extends the rewards program to Sunoco stations in parts of Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. Under the program, Safeway customers can save up to 20 cents off per gallon at the pump.
More than 120 Safeway stores in the three states and Washington, D.C. offer the program to shoppers, and approximately 200 Sunoco stations are participating.
"Our Gas Rewards program is an easy and convenient way to save money while doing something you do every week — shop for groceries," said Safeway Eastern Division President Dan Valenzuela. "We're excited to team up with Sunoco, a powerhouse in the fuel industry that has stations throughout the East Coast, to bring Sunoco customers, as well as our own valued customers, additional savings when they fuel up at Sunoco stations."
Previously, Safeway's Gas Rewards, which increase with each $100 spent using a Safeway Club Card, were redeemable only at Safeway fuel stations.
"Sunoco is always looking for innovative ways to provide value to our customers and reward them for choosing our brand," said Cynthia A. Archer, Sunoco LP executive vice president and chief marketing officer. "We're excited to offer our customers even more benefits through our partnership with Safeway."
Customers can register at Safeway.com or by downloading the Safeway app. With the Gas Rewards program, for every 100 Reward Points earned by shopping at Safeway stores using the Safeway Club Card, customers receive a 10 cent-per-gallon savings.
Reward Points can be earned by shopping at Safeway stores in the following ways:
- Customers receive one point per $1 spent on eligible grocery purchases.
- Customers receive one point for every out-of-pocket cost dollar spent on pharmacy, including co-pays.
- Customers can build up points twice as fast by receiving two points per $1 spent on qualifying gift cards.
The Gas Rewards program is also available in Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Pavilions and Carrs stores in Alaska, Arizona, California, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, Oregon and Washington.
