Rutter’s Farm Stores is revving up its “Fuel Up Free!” gas giveaway where four grand-prize winners will receive 15 gallons of free gas for three years, the company said.
The giveaway runs May 26 to Aug. 24, with grand-prize drawings taking place on June 23, July 14, Aug. 4 and Sept. 15.
“There’s been a lot of talk about giving consumers a break from high gas prices, but Rutter’s again is doing something about it,” said Scott Hartman, president and CEO of Rutter’s Farm Stores. “We awarded free gas to seven customers in the first two years of the giveaway and look forward to doing the same for four more customers this year.”
Rutter’s will offer weekly food or beverage specials at its stores, where a customer will receive an entry blank with each purchase of one of the specials. The more specials customers purchase, the more chances they have to win.
Customers will be able to obtain an entry blank by showing an M&T Bank ATM receipt to a Rutter’s clerk. Rutter’s offers no-surcharge M&T ATMs in each of its stores.
Each of the winners will receive a Rutter’s fleet card, a debit card with a dollar amount on it. The amount will be based on the average retail price of unleaded gas at Rutter’s store on the day of each grand-prize drawing, multiplied by 15 gallons of gas per week for 156 weeks.
Participating sponsors for the program are Pepsi-Cola, Davis Beverages, Monster Energy, Snapple, Canada Dry, Jack and Jill Ice Cream, Edy’s Grand Ice Cream, QTG–Quaker, Red Bull, Nestle Waters, Rutter’s Dairy, S&D Coffee, Kunzler Meats and M&T Bank.
Participants in the contest must be at least 18 years old and a resident of Pennsylvania or Maryland at the time of entry. Official giveaway rules are available at all Rutter’s Stores and at www.rutters.com.
