GasBuddy, Corner Store Make It Rain Free Gas For Thanksgiving

Halloween is in the rearview mirror, which means it’s time for turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie and free gas — you probably need a bit of an explanation on the free gas part.

GasBuddy and Corner Store have joined forces to launch a November campaign called ‘Tanks’giving, which aims to give away thousands of gallons of gas to drivers this month.  For those not familiar with GasBuddy, it’s an app that goes the extra mile to help holiday road trippers by highlighting the location of nearby gas stations and the cost of gasoline at those specific places.

If you are planning on traveling by car a few hundred miles this Thanksgiving, we recommend you download GasBuddy or an app like it, which will make finding inexpensive gas a veritable breeze.

Rather than merely offer a technological edge for your next road trip, GasBuddy and Corner Store are making this a particularly special November.

GasBuddy’s blog explains that interested parties can simply download its app, create a profile and head to various Corner Store locations this month. That’s when an official will surprise consumers with up to $20 of free petrol for that family truckster of yours.

Walt Doyle, CEO of GasBuddy, explained: “Millions of Americans are making plans this month to visit friends and family. Corner Store and GasBuddy share a commitment to helping people on the road, whether it is fueling up the car or getting a good cup of coffee. This is why we are excited to work together and make this travel season as easy and enjoyable as possible.”

A press release states that those in Phoenix will get the first flow of free gas on November 2 with Denver after that.
