Fuel/Grocery Brands & Loyalty Programs

Goals

To understand the mechanics of US fuel and grocery store loyalty programs and brands by completing a competitive analysis of each sector. Using the attached spreadsheet, the fuel brands to cover include Shell, Exxon Mobil, and Circle K; the grocery brands include Safeway, Giant, Southeast Grocers, Meijer, and Kroger.

Early Findings

Shell

  • Shell recently instituted a fuel rewards “Pro” app that rewards fleet drivers. Those who secured a Pro ID, enter a special code and after pumping 10 gallons of gas or more, earn a 5-cents-off per gallon Pro reward. The reward is applied to their next personal fill-up up to 20 gallons.

Kroger

  • The company operates 2,800 retail supermarkets under various names, including Kroger, Dillon’s, Ralph’s, Fry’s, Harris Teeter and others.
