Hy-Vee, Casey’s Team on Fuel Program

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Hy-Vee [3] and Casey’s General Stores on Thursday said they would partner on a gasoline-discount program tied to certain grocery purchases.

The new Fuel Saver program, which begins next week, 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 chief executive officer of Hy-Vee, said in a statement. “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.”

Casey’s, based in Ankeny, Iowa, is one of the largest convenience-store chains in the Midwest.
