Kangaroo Express, operated by Cary, N.C.-based The Pantry Inc., recently opened pre-registration for its fans to reserve their refillable cups for the summer. The RooCup, a collectible cup refillable with any fountain and frozen beverage for 25 cents, returns to Kangaroo Express convenience stores for its third summer season.
Kangaroo Express guests now can reserve their 2013 RooCup on the Kangaroo Express Facebook page as well an additional week of RooCup refills and summer fun. Certificates will be emailed with details to redeem in store and purchase a RooCup starting April 24, one week before the RooCup’s release to the public May 1.
Fans also are encouraged to share their RooCup designs and summer RooCup experiences on Twitter and Instagram with #RooCup. Those who do will have the chance to be featured on www.RooCup.com and the Kangaroo Express Facebook page as a “#RooCup of the Week.”
RooCup fans can sign up for the Street Team when pre-registering. Street Team members will have five chances to win 200 free RooCup refills throughout the summer, with the “Ultimate RooCup Fanatic” winning a $500 Kangaroo Express gift card.
Also new this summer is a Kangaroo Express smart phone app, allowing guests to find the closest store to refill their RooCup along their travels. Guests who download the app, free at the iPhone, Android and Blackberry app stores, will unlock more than $30 in savings with the “Passport to Savings,” including free refills and coupons for a RooCup refill and snack for just $1.
