HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., March 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- There are more than 200 million drivers in the U.S., spending more than $315 billion on gasoline each year, making it one of the largest and most frequent everyday expenses they have. Today, filling up will be far less expensive and infinitely more rewarding for Shop Your Way members.
Shop Your Way, a business unit of Sears Holdings (NASDAQ :SHLD ), has announced a strategic partnership with GasBuddy, whose Pay with GasBuddy gasoline payment service entitles hundreds of thousands of its users to a discount on nearly every gallon of gas they pump. Shop Your Way members who use the broadly accepted Pay with GasBuddy service will receive CASHBACK in Shop Your Way Points for every paid gas fill up*.
Shop Your Way members who travel and fill up using the Pay with GasBuddy service can save hundreds per year on gasoline as they will receive*:
- $.30/gallon CASHBACK in Points for paid fill-ups for first 60 days after pairing account with Shop Your Way
- $.15/gallon CASHBACK in Points for every paid fill-up thereafter
The Shop Your Way partnership also provides existing Pay with GasBuddy users with even more value over their current benefit of saving $.15/gallon for the first-fill up and $.05/gallon for every fill-up thereafter.
"With gas rates expected to rise and the potential for gas tax hikes looming on the horizon, Shop Your Way is there for our members – with an industry-leading value proposition, thanks to our partners at GasBuddy," said Robert Naedele, chief commercial officer, Shop Your Way. "Pumping up your tank now means pumping up the CASHBACK in Points. This is just another example of the everyday value and convenience that members expect from Shop Your Way."
