YORK, PA - Loyal Rutter€™s customer Arthur Bankert is the sixth winner in the company€™s Fuel Up Free sweepstakes, which is awarding a year€™s worth of free gasoline to eight lucky customers.
"I stop in for a cup of coffee almost every morning, and some mornings I meet a few people at the store to sit and talk," Bankert said.
The sweepstakes involves customers scanning their Rutter€™s Rewards loyalty cards when they make a purchase from a designated list of qualified items.
The Rutter€™s Rewards loyalty program began in October of 2009. Nearly 1,600 items at the company€™s 56 stores carries a rewards value, which ranges from 1 cent to 10 cents per gallon. Each time a customer purchases one of those items, he receives a net reward in cash savings on a purchase of up to 20 gallons of gas. Rewards are redeemable immediately and valid up to 60 days from the date it is earned.
Two more customers will win a year€™s supply of free gasoline in the sweepstakes, which ends at the end of September.
Earlier this week, Rutter€™s also announced its July winners in its Register, Scan and Win Sweepstakes, who were awarded a 3-pack of Sloppy Joe sliders, new to the menu this month at Rutter€™s.
"We€™ve gotten extremely positive customer responses to our new Sloppy Joe sandwiches, we thought it€™d be a great way to reward our loyal customers," said Vice President of Food Service Jerry Weiner.
Winners for the monthly contest are drawn from a pool of customers who scanner their registered Rutter€™s Rewards card.
