"As a locally owned and operated company, we know that the high cost of gasoline is impacting the budgets of families throughout the [image-nocss] region, including the families of our 700 employees," said Michael F. Newman, executive vice president of NOCO Energy Corp. "We are doing our best to find ways to provide savings to our customers in these very difficult market conditions and the program we are partnering with AAA Western and Central New York on is one way we are trying to being some relief."
The AAA & NOCO Fuel Advantage program is the first savings programs between AAA and NOCO Express. The two organizations have formed a long-term discount partnership that allows future savings opportunities and additional benefits for AAA members and customers of NOCO Express.
"With the average cost of self-serve regular currently over $4 a gallon, motorists are looking for ways to save," said Tom Chestnut, President and CEO of AAA Western & Central New York. "The cost of gasoline impacts the family budget, and AAA understands how important it is to offset higher costs by taking advantage of every available discount."
To use the AAA & NOCO Fuel Advantage discount, motorists swipe their AAA membership card at any NOCO Express pump where it will automatically reduce the price per gallon by three cents. Then, they swipe a credit/debit or NOCO gift card, remove the nozzle, select fuel grade and pump the fuel. Members using cash may pay inside after swiping their AAA card.
While using the fuel discount, AAA members earn reward points at NOCO Express. At the pump, for every gallon of gasoline purchased, the customer earns 10 reward points. AAA members also earn 20 reward points for every dollar spent inside NOCO Express on convenience items.
