ALEXANDRIA, Va.—With gas prices still at a record-high, convenience store retailers are attempting to take the sting out of fueling up through gas discounts and rewards programs.

The Spinx Company, based in Greenville South Carolina, announced a discount of 25 cents per gallon when customers use their Spinx Xtras loyalty program to purchase fuel through May 2. Customers must pay through Spinx’s Xtras Pay function in the Spinx app, which is linked to a customer’s bank account.

“Being customer focused and community centric are part of our core values and our customers and our communities are struggling right now with historically high fuel prices,” said Stan Storti, president of The Spinx Company. “At Spinx, we’re proud of our community-centric heritage. It’s natural for us to do our best to help our friends, neighbors, and teammates whenever we can. After all, Spinx exists to make peoples’ lives easier. We think this will help.”

Huck’s Market, located in Carmi, Illinois, is offering 10 cents off each gallon of fuel for customers that are members of the Huck’s Bucks Bigg Rewards Loyalty Program, which is free to join. Previously, the only fuel incentive from Huck’s was 10 points for every gallon of fuel a member purchased.

At bp and Amoco stations, BPme Rewards members can save five cents per gallon during the first month of signing up for the program, and if customers spend $100 on fuel each calendar month, they can continue to save five cents per gallon. Bp also offers a price match program for 99 cents a month. The app will automatically scan for the prices of nearby gas stations within a two-mile radius, and if it finds a lower price, members receive more off the price of fuel, up to another five cents.

Sheetz offers three cents off a gallon of gas for having a My Sheetz Rewardz account. A Twitter post from 2020 shows someone paying 20 cents for a gallon of gas, and Sheetz reminded customers that they can stack their rewards points.

7-Eleven’s 7REWARDS app offers 11 cents off each gallon of gas for a customer’s first seven trips, and then they’ll receive three cents off a gallon after that.

At Exxon and Mobil, the Exxon Mobil Rewards+ program gives customers three points per gallon on fuel and two points for every dollar a customer spends in the convenience stores and on car washes. For every 100 points they earn, they receive $1 off at the pump. AARP members earn an additional one cent per gallon and one cent per dollar spent in stores.

At Circle K, its Easy Rewards program rewards 10 points for every gallon of fuel purchased plus 20 points per dollar when a customer purchases snacks, food and nonalcoholic beverages in Circle K stores. For every 2,000 points, customers save $2 at the pump.
