It’s no secret that fuel costs are continually rising. So I’m excited to share with you a new way to save money at the pump! I mean, who doesn’t like saving money?
Safeway and ExxonMobil have teamed up to offer the Safeway/ExxonMobil Fuel Rewards Program - a new way to save money on fuel costs through earning Rewards Points on most products purchased at Safeway stores in the Mid-Atlantic region and redeeming those Rewards Points at participating Exxon or Mobil gas locations.
According to a recent *consumer survey conducted by Safeway, one-third of families go out of their way because saving money is important to them. Nearly three out of four people will drive out of their way for more affordable gas, and 76% of consumers surveyed said they would change where they grocery shop and purchase gas to save money. With more than a quarter of consumers spending up to $175 on gas and more than $300 in groceries each month, saving money is very important.
Safeway/ExxonMobil Rewards Program: How does it work?
Safeway Gas Rewards Points are easy to earn. Simply purchase groceries, qualifying gift cards and pharmacy items with a Safeway Club Card (obtained for free at any Safeway store location) and redeem those Rewards Points at participating Exxon or Mobil gas locations. For every 100 points earned by shopping at Safeway stores with a Safeway Club Card, shoppers can earn ten cents per gallon Reward. Shoppers can use up to one dollar per gallon in Rewards on a single fill-up at a participating Exxon or Mobil location with a maximum of 25 gallons and a limit of one vehicle per transaction.
Reward Points can be earned by shopping at Safeway stores in the following ways:
- Grocery shopping at Safeway stores rewards shoppers with one point per one dollar spent on eligible purchases.
- By purchasing qualifying gift cards, shoppers receive two points per one dollar spent.
- Every one dollar spent on eligible pharmacy items equals one Reward Point.
To redeem Rewards Points, simply swipe your Safeway Club Card or by entering your linked phone number at the pump before fueling up.
This loyalty program is currently available throughout the U.S. Mid-Atlantic region. For complete details, see the Reward Points Program Terms and Conditions at safeway.com or inquire in stores. You can also click here for a participating ExxonMobil gas locations near you.
