South Florida supermarket gives out free gas to promote loyalty program

SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A supermarket promoting its loyalty program gave away free gas to motorists in Southwest Miami-Dade.

One hundred drivers were treated to free gas and a shopping bag full of goodies at the Shell gas station near Southwest Eighth Street and 107th Avenue, Tuesday morning.

“I was on the way home, and I saw a big sign that said ‘free gas,’ and I took a shot, and I’m here now,” said motorist Dangelo Valdez.

It’s all part of SE Grocers’ rewards program that allows customers to earn points during checkout at any Winn-Dixie or Fresco y Mas supermarket.

“The first one hundred cars got up to $40 worth of free fuel. They also got a Fresco y Mas bag with some food products and each bag contains a Fresco y Mas gift certificate with a value from $5 to $500.”

Accumulated points can be redeemed for gas or groceries at participating Shell gas stations.
