Fuel Up For Freedom! GasBuddy Partners with Kwik Trip to Give Free Gas to Drivers in Honor of Independence Day


Special event comes as part of Kwik Trip’s recent selection of GasBuddy Business Pages to power customer insight and marketing

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with Kwik Trip, operator of over 550 trusted, family-owned convenience stores in communities throughout Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, to give away thousands of dollars worth of free fuel to GasBuddy members at a Kwik Trip location in the Twin Cities area on June 29.

In recognition of the start of the July 4th weekend when many consumers will be hitting the road, GasBuddy and Kwik Trip have come together for a special ‘Fuel Up for Freedom’ GasBuddy Tank Takeover Event, where representatives from both companies will surprise Minnesotan drivers who have the free GasBuddy app downloaded and a GasBuddy profile created with upwards of $20 worth of fuel per vehicle. The exact Kwik Trip location will be revealed the morning of the event.

“Nothing makes a pit stop more perfect than free gasoline. Our annual GasBuddy Summer Travel survey found that more people will be traveling this 4th of July weekend compared to previous years,” said Mike DiLorenzo, Vice President of Marketing at GasBuddy. “Gas prices may be low right now, but nothing beats free.”

As the birthplace of GasBuddy, Minneapolis-Saint Paul is the home of the first community of millions of passionate consumers who have downloaded the #3 travel app in the world.

“At Kwik Trip it is always a pleasure to serve our guests. It will be even more enjoyable to provide some of those guests with free fuel during the holiday weekend!” said John McHugh, Director of Public Relations at Kwik Trip. “By partnering with GasBuddy and subscribing to Business Pages, we’re able to more effectively put our guests first.”

The GasBuddy ‘Fuel Up for Freedom’ Tank Takeover event is based on GasBuddy’s successful series that have taken place in various cities including Charlotte, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, and San Diego. Thousands of people attended each event to receive free fuel, forming lines around the block.

The exact Tank Takeover location will be revealed on @KwikTrip social media channels the morning of the event at 7am. It will then be reposted on @GasBuddy social media channels and in the GasBuddy app.
