STELLARTON, NS, April 19 /CNW/ - The popular gas savings program between
Irving Oil and Sobeys is back. Beginning Wednesday, April 20, customers
can once again earn cents off per-litre coupons at all 82 Sobeys
locations in Atlantic Canada.
The new program will run until July 3 and coupons can be redeemed at
participating Irving or Fast Fuel locations throughout Atlantic Canada
until July 17.
"Now that we can finally start putting the winter behind us, we're
thrilled to welcome warmer weather with another round of our savings
program with Sobeys," said Irving spokesperson, Liza Dube.
With a minimum $50 grocery purchase, Sobeys shoppers will automatically
receive a paper coupon for per-litre fuel savings. With a grocery
purchase of $250 or more, customers will receive a coupon for 9 cents
off per litre. Coupons can be redeemed individually or be combined to
increase the savings when filling up at Irving.
After a three-week hiatus in the program, Irving and Sobeys are pleased
to bring it back just in time for spring.
"With spring here and people driving more, customers are telling us a
gas savings program is more important than ever," said Dave MacNeil,
Director of Marketing, Sobeys Atlantic. "The re-launch of the program
is one more way that Sobeys delivers 'Great Prices PLUS' the best food
shopping experience in Atlantic Canada."
