WAWA, PA--(Marketwired - Mar 1, 2017) - Wawa is about to give its Reward members a whole new reason to say "thank goodness it's Friday!" Wawa Inc. today announced the return of "Free Coffee Fridays," offering everyone with a Wawa Rewards membership five free days of coffee -- during every Friday in the month of March. This offer continues to make connecting with Wawa through its mobile app and Wawa Rewards program more rewarding and convenient -- especially for coffee lovers! The promotion builds on the success of the Fall "Free for All" promotion when more than 10 million rewards were distributed to Wawa Rewards members! The March "Free Coffee Fridays" promotion will be Wawa's largest Wawa Reward giveaway yet -- with millions of coffee rewards planned for distribution.

"We are thrilled to bring back 'Free Coffee Fridays' building on the success of the Fall program," said Dena Pizzutti, Manager of Relationship Marketing. "Our members love the variety of our rewards, but coffee is definitely the favorite!"
