The Cenex Dog Days of Summer giveaway is underway

INVER GROVE HEIGHTS, Minn.—Cenex Zip Trip, owned and operated by CHS Inc., has launched its third annual summer giveaway promotion. Called “The Dog Days of Summer Gift,” the promotion started on July 18th and will run until September 5th.

Customers who are 21 years of age or older can visit any of the 39 Cenex Zip Trip stores during the promotional period to enter and win one of several prizes, including the grand prize of a year’s supply of fuel. Additional weekly prizes include coolers, Bluetooth speakers, a smokeless campfire and more. Customers can enter to win as often as once per day, per location, by scanning a QR code located on each store’s promotional materials.

Additionally, to help strengthen hometown communities and support animals in need, Cenex Zip Trip donates $500 each of the seven weeks to different animal shelters across its footprint. Customers and social media followers are encouraged to nominate their favorite animal shelter to win. The top nominee each week will receive the $500 donation.

“With the fuel prices we’ve experienced this year, we wanted to not only bring a little fun and excitement to our stores, but also offer relief at the pump to one lucky customer,” said Andrea Worley, marketing specialist at Cenex Zip Trip. “We also love to involve our customers and communities in selecting some local animal shelters to support.”

Multiple winners will be randomly selected each week during the promotion and the grand prize winner will be selected after September 5th.

In 2020, Cenex unveiled its LIFT initiative, a lighting, image and facility transformation designed to renovate Cenex-brand c-stores through a series of exterior and interior upgrades, along with optional loan financing for store improvements. NACS Magazine covered the launch of Cenex’s LIFT initiative in the May 2021 issue, and in March, NACS Magazine highlighted a rural Wisconsin store in need of a “LIFT” face.

Akhtar Hussain, Chief Marketing Officer of Cenex Refined Fuels, recently hosted the NACS Convenience Matters podcast to discuss how Cenex sees the current economic state as a way to further solidify its commitment to the communities it serves.
