90-Day Price Rollback Launches for Holiday Weekend
BENTONVILLE, Ark., June 29, 2011 – Today, Walmart announces a 90-day price Rollback to give Alabama customers a savings of 10 cents a gallon on all fuel, gas and diesel, at more than 50 participating Murphy USA gas stations statewide. The program will run from June 30 through September 30, 2011, and allows customers to receive a 10-cent statement rebate when they use their Walmart credit card at a participating station.*
“Our customers have told us that high gas prices are their top budget concern, nearly as large of an expense to their household as food and groceries,” said Stephen Quinn, chief marketing officer. “We listen to our customers and because we know they are feeling squeezed by gas prices, we’re implementing this gas Rollback program to help them save, especially during high travel summer months.
“It’s important to us that we extend this offer to everyone, not just Walmart customers shopping in our stores, without requiring any other type of purchase,” said Quinn. “Our goal is to make it easy to save and live better for everyone, and we think this gas program is leading in the market because it doesn’t require any additional purchase.”
In 18 other states, customers who use the Walmart family of cards to buy gas at participating Walmart and Murphy USA gas stations in will immediately save 10 cents a gallon on gas purchases right at the pump, with no other restrictions or requirements.
Those states are:
• Michigan • Mississippi
• New Mexico
• North Carolina
• South Carolina
In Florida, Walmart credit card users will also receive a 10-cent statement rebate when they use their Walmart credit card at a participating station; the Walmart Gift Card program moves to a 5-cent discount at the pump; and there is a new 5-cent-per-gallon gas discount with the Walmart MoneyCard.
