YORK, PA - Loyal Rutterï¿½ï¿½s customer Arthur Bankert is the sixth winner in the companyï¿½ï¿½s Fuel Up Free sweepstakes, which is awarding a yearï¿½ï¿½s 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 Rutterï¿½ï¿½s Rewards loyalty cards when they make a purchase from a designated list of qualified items.
The Rutterï¿½ï¿½s Rewards loyalty program began in October of 2009. Nearly 1,600 items at the companyï¿½ï¿½s 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 yearï¿½ï¿½s supply of free gasoline in the sweepstakes, which ends at the end of September.
Earlier this week, Rutterï¿½ï¿½s 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 Rutterï¿½ï¿½s.
"Weï¿½ï¿½ve gotten extremely positive customer responses to our new Sloppy Joe sandwiches, we thought itï¿½ï¿½d 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 Rutterï¿½ï¿½s Rewards card.
