Lowes Foods Logo

Lowes Foods is pleased to announce a Bonus Gas Rewards promotion exclusively for its customers at the brand new store at 17230 US Highway 17 in Hampstead, NC.  This is the newest Lowes Foods store to open in the Carolinas and the first in the Topsail area.  From now until July 30, 2013, Hampstead customers will earn 25¢ in gas rewards for every transaction of $75 or more. 

Each Lowes Foods offers Gas Rewards in partnership with WilcoHess that usually allows customers to earn 5¢ off per gallon of gas for every $100 they spend in groceries at Lowes Foods.  Gas rewards can be redeemed immediately at the Lowes Foods fuel station adjacent to the Hampstead store or at any participating WilcoHess or Trade Wilco fuel station in North or South Carolina.

Eligible purchases for this promotion include all groceries, third party gift cards and tobacco products and only excludes Lowes Foods Gift Cards, lottery purchases, alcohol and services.  There is no limit to the amount of Gas Rewards that may be earned, and they can be stacked so that customers can save 25¢, 50¢, 75¢ or more per gallon.  As Kirby Bolin, Lowes Foods Store Manager at the Hampstead location notes, "Our customers are already spending money on groceries.  Now they can turn those purchases into even lower gas prices.  That's the kind of savings that will make your day!"

Lowes Foods customers who would like to begin earning Bonus Gas Rewards and have not previously enrolled may pick up a Fresh Rewards loyalty card at the Hampstead Lowes Foods or contact the Lowes Foods Customer Care Center at 1-888-537-8646.  Loyalty cards have a magnetic strip allowing customers to scan or swipe for loyalty discounts in store as well as using their card at the gas pump to redeem Gas Rewards.
