Wawa, Short on Change, Giving Away Shortis for a Year
Citing a shortage of coins, Wawa is giving its customers with spare change a chance to win Shortis for a year.
Here's how it works: if you bring $5 worth of rolled coins to any Wawa, you'll receive $5 back and get a coupon for a free coffee, soda, or Icee. If you bring $50 in rolled coins in, you'll get your $50 back plus a free Shorti hoagie. Any trade for at least $5 of rolled coins will allow you a chance to win Shortis for a year.
According to a press release from the convenience store chain,
Beginning on Monday, August 31, 2020 through Thursday, October 1, 2020, customers can visit any of the 900+ Wawa stores across its operating area of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Florida and Washington, D.C., from 6:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. EST to exchange a minimum $5 of rolled coin (Quarters, Dimes, Nickels, Pennies) for a raffle ticket. Customers are required to visit Wawa.com to enter their information and a unique raffle ticket number into the drawing to officially enter to win the contest. The winner will be contacted by phone or email shortly after the deadline and will be formally presented with a gift card to purchase Shorti® Hoagies
throughout the year at any location and at any preferred time.
Dave Simonetti, Senior Director of Store Operations for Wawa says, "With our continued desire to increase coin exchange participation, we hope our new “Shortis® for a Year,” contest will be a fun and effective way to continue countering the national coin shortage while sharing a special opportunity to win a year’s worth of one of our most beloved products.”
