WESTBOROUGH, Mass.—EG America announced that its SmartPay Rewards program has reached $5 billion in fuel sales since its launch in 2013 and has saved members $200 million, according to a news release.
SmartPay Rewards members automatically save 10 cents on every gallon of fuel, every day at EG retailers throughout the country including Cumberland Farms, Certified Oil, Fastrac, Kwik Shop, Loaf N’ Jug, Minit Mart, Quik Stop, Tom Thumb and Turkey Hill. The program is free to join and use.
In celebration of the $5-billion milestone, EG America will run its Summer of SmartPay promotion in all locations again (excluding Cumberland Farms), which gives SmartPay Rewards App users an additional 10 cents off per gallon of fuel, totaling 20 cents off on every gallon. The promotion will run from now through September 6.
SmartPay has seen rapid growth—the program reached $4 billion in fuel sales late last year. Enrollment has increased sharply as the program expanded throughout the EG America portfolio of stores.
“When we launched our industry-leading SmartPay Rewards program nine years ago, we could not have imagined the level of success we have achieved,” said George Fournier, president of EG America. “Over $5 billion in fuel sales and $200 million in savings later, we’re immensely proud of the results and the continued value to our guests. As we recognize this milestone, we’re excited to kick off the Summer of SmartPay and deliver even more savings to our guests as they get back on the road this summer.”
