“The Rutter’s Rewards program is the best in the industry,” said Derek Gaskins, Rutter’s chief customer officer. “We offer unlimited fuel savings to our customers by placing cents-off-per gallon rewards on 1,700 products inside our stores, including every beverage and most items on our world-class menu. There are even greater benefits for customers who register their card online. The fuel rewards can be redeemed on up to 20 gallons, and the savings are unlimited. It truly is the fastest way to lower gas prices.”
Smart phone users can download Rutter’s mobile app, the convenience store industry’s first, to access their Rutter’s Rewards account, redeem mobile coupons, find Rutter’s gas prices by store and play games to win free merchandise.
