The Spinx Company, Inc. Key Developments

The Spinx Company, Inc. Launches Version 2.0 of Mobile App

The Spinx Company launched second version of its Spinx Xtras mobile app, featuring new, forward-thinking features including the ability for users to access real-time fuel pricing. Other new features on the app include the option for users to select a 'favorite' Spinx store and preferred fuel grade. The app then calculates available Xtras rewards earned by the user and displays the discounted price per gallon as compared to the street price, on the home screen. Also included in the new version of the app is an amenities pages for each store, providing details like whether the store offers a full or limited deli menu, whether the store accepts BI-LO fuelperks!, and which unique fuel grades the store carries. The app also allows users to see a map or list of all stores and receive directions to any one of the stores. A key feature that was part of the initial Spinx Xtras app launch remains, allowing customers who have linked their Xtras card to their checking account to use their phone to scan, activate and complete a transaction at the pump or at the register inside the store. A customer automatically saves 5 cents per gallon when the card is used as a method of payment.

The Spinx Company, Inc. Partners with Shell Oil Company

The Spinx Company announced a new partnership with Shell Oil Company, in which the company will brand 13 of its fueling stations with the Shell moniker, creating newly co-branded sites that will now be redemption locations for the popular BI-LO fuelperks program. The company will not change its in-store offer at these sites, allowing customers to continue to enjoy the same food, merchandise and level of service to which they are accustomed. The conversion of the 13 sites to the company/Shell sites will include mostly upstate South Carolina locations that are currently co-branded with another national fuel retailer. This conversion is scheduled in phases, the first of which will include three stores, with completion by the end of the first quarter of 2015.
