So rumors have been abundant about Speedway canceling its beloved Speedy Rewards program starting January 1. What has changed? I’m not sure. A few posts from GrandRapidsGasPrices.com got me curious- I had yet to hear about anything changing, so I went digging.
Here is what I’ve found so far:
Coupons violate state law mandated by Weights and Measures Department
MID-MICHIGAN (WJRT) —
(12/31/07)–The new year always bris with it change, but this you may
not want. At midnight New Year’s Eve, a popular way to get discounts at
the pump will be no more.
A representative from a local Speedway says the chain will no longer
offer fuel discount redemptions in the form of coupons or receipts.
The coupons violate a state law mandated by the Weights and Measures
Department. But if you use a Speedy Rewards Card at the pump you can
still get a deal on gas.
Speedway says it plans to accept the coupons customers already have until they expire.

I e-mailed WOODTV to see if they’d pick up the story… more on that later.
