FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Jan. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cumberland Farms, a leading gasoline, convenience, and coffee retailer, today announced that its SmartPay Check-Link(SM) payment program has saved customers $20 million on gas since its launch in January 2013. Available as both a card and a mobile payment app, the SmartPay Check-Link program has also experienced significant user growth with a 30% increase in enrollments over the last six months. Free to enroll, SmartPay Check-Link users automatically save 10 cents on every gallon of gas every day at Cumberland Farms' gas retail locations in the Northeast and Florida.
"We are extremely pleased with the performance of our SmartPay program and that total savings on gas for our customers has jumped from $10 million to $20 million in just eight months," said Ari Haseotes, CEO of Cumberland Farms. "We look forward to the continued expansion of this convenient and budget-friendly way for our loyal customers to save at the pump."
SmartPay Check-Link lets customers pay for gas at the pump and save 10-cents immediately.
