Walmart Pumps Up Savings on Gas with 15 Cents per Gallon Discount
Return of Retailer's "Great Gas Rollback" Saves Customers Money on Travels from Labor Day through Christmas Eve and Every Shopping Trip in Between
BENTONVILLE, Ark., Aug. 29, 2012 -- In the past month, gas prices have gone up more than 25 cents increasing strain on consumers' budgets and worries as fall and winter holidays approach. Walmart is easing the pain at the pump with the return of its Great Gas Rollback program, helping customers save on their fuel purchases in three different ways. Walmart customers using a Walmart gift card will receive a 10 cent per gallon discount. Customers who use a Walmart MoneyCard® or Walmart credit card will save 15 cents per gallon on their fuel purchase.
The Great Gas Rollback will begin Aug. 31 and end Dec. 24. Gas will be discounted at more than 1,000 Murphy USA and Walmart gas stations located at Walmart Supercenters in participating states.
"It's a busy time for our customers. They are sending their kids back to school and planning for Labor Day travels, and the holidays are just around the corner. As gas prices get higher, these tasks get tougher," said Duncan Mac Naughton, chief merchandising and marketing officer for Walmart U.S. "We're here to help. Last year, we saved our customers nearly $60 million with the gas rollback program. This year, we're excited to provide an even bigger discount on fuel that will help them save more money when they need it the most."
Walmart's Great Gas Rollback will be available in the following states:
