HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. — Kmart is offering Shop Your Way members a chance to save at the pump while checking off their school supply and grocery shopping lists at select stores.
The retailer cited the AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report, which states that the average national price of a regular gallon of gas is $3.62, compared to the national average of $3.48 a year ago. And Kmart wants to make sure the recent spike in gas prices which has coincided with the back-to-school shopping season doesn’t negatively impact foot traffic to stores.
Shop Your Way members who purchase $50 or more of Procter & Gamble products at select Kmart stores between now and Aug. 3 will be eligible to save $1 per gallon of gas (certain gallon limits apply) at participating BP and Speedway gas stations.
Members can also save 30 cents per gallon on gas when they spend $50 or more with a coupon they receive at checkout, which can result in potential savings of $1.30 per gallon of gas at participating Speedway gas stations.
As further incentive to keep traffic coming into its stores, Kmart offers Shop Your Way members free layaway (no service fee), weekly exclusive members-only deals on school supplies and the chance to earn 5% in rewards points every day they use their Sears MasterCard at Kmart.
