ENON, Ohio -- Speedway LLC convenience stores has made a deal with Revol Wireless, a provider of unlimited, contract-free wireless phone service. Revol Wireless subscribers can purchase airtime service cards at 355 Speedway stores across Ohio and Indiana. In addition, Speedway locations will sell Revol Wireless phones in product packaging designed solely for this partnership.

"Our customers now have a new level of support and convenience at 355 locations across our markets," said Joey Holibaugh, Revol vice president of sales. "In addition, Speedway customers will now be exposed to our unlimited, no-contract product offering, which helps individuals and families save monthly over traditional wireless providers."

With the airtime service card solution, Revol Wireless subscribers purchase the amount they need, from $20 to $75, to satisfy their monthly payment. Once they purchase the card from Speedway, customers call a toll-free number, punch in a couple pieces of information and the payment is posted to the account. They can then continue to experience the unlimited calling, texting or web browsing on the Revol Wireless phone.

In addition to being able to purchase service cards, Speedway customers will be able to purchase select Revol phones. Through June 30, 2012, Speedway will offer a Revol Messaging Phone at a special discounted price of only $34.99 with the purchase of a Revol $45 service card. This no-contract phone, which retails at $49.99, features a full QWERTY keyboard.

Customers who participate in Speedway's loyalty program, Speedy Rewards, will receive 1,500 Speedy Rewards points with the purchase of this phone package.

Revol Wireless made the products available at the Speedway locations across Ohio and Indiana beginning May 1, 2012.
