Walmart+ Expands Fuel Discount Offer To Exxon, Mobil Stations
Walmart is offering increased discounts on fuel to members of Walmart+, its subscription service, at select fuel stations amid the increasing fuel prices. The retail major is also expanding the service to Exxon and Mobil Stations.
Starting Wednesday, Walmart+ members will receive an instant discount of up to 10 cents on every gallon of fuel they purchase at participating fuel stations.
Walmart+ fuel discount is now available at more than 14,000 stations with the addition of 12,000 Exxon and Mobil locations across the country. This is a more than sixfold increase from the previous number of stations.
In a statement, Walmart said Walmart+ members will save 10 cents per gallon at participating Exxon and Mobil locations, as well as 5 to 10 cents per gallon at Walmart and Murphy USA stations. Member pricing is also available at more than 500 Sam’s Club locations.
Chris Cracchiolo, senior vice president & general manager of Walmart+, said, “More access to a bigger discount will make a difference for our customers. We want Walmart+ to help our customers save time and money, not only when shopping with us, but throughout their day.”

Cancom Q1 Preliminary EBITDA Rises
German IT service provider Cancom SE (CNCXY.PK) reported that its preliminary group EBITDA for the first quarter rose 6.2 percent to 27.2 million euros from the prior year.
Group revenue was 300.9 million euros in the first quarter of 2022, a decline of 10.8 percent from the prior year. The decline in revenue was mainly due to continuing supply bottlenecks for IT hardware. By contrast, the earnings trend remained positive, as business volumes with a high proportion of hardware in particular are negatively impacted and CANCOM’s operating earnings trend is primarily determined by the service business.
The company now expects significant annual revenue growth. Previously, it expected very significant annual revenue growth. The annual forecast for the gross profit, EBITDA and EBITA of the CANCOM Group has also been changed to significant growth from very significant growth.
The company changed the annual forecast, due to the fact that, contrary to expectations, the supply chain situation is not improving but worsening, in particular due to permanent lockdowns in Asia, as well as the macroeconomic environment.
The company will publish its result for the first quarter of 2022 on 12 May 2022.
