I’m kind of a fan of getting a good deal on something especially when it doesn’t cost me anything extra. That’s why I love the Kroger Fuel Points Program. I get significant savings on my gas bill just by doing my regular grocery shopping.
The program works like this:
- Shop at Kroger.
- When you’re checking out, have the cashier scan your free Kroger Plus Card (like a loyalty card). You can also scan it yourself if you use the self check-out.
- For every $1 that you spend on groceries, you receive one point. Gift cards (with a few exclusions) give you 2 points per dollar.
- Once you’ve reached 100 Fuel Points you’ll receive 10 cents off per gallon at the Kroger fuel pump and at participating Shell stations.
- Ready to buy gas? Simply scan your Plus Card at the pump and it will ask you if you’d like to use your discount. Depending on how many Fuel Points you have, you can save up to $1 per gallon at a Kroger pump (10 cent max at a Shell station).
Full details of the program can be found on the Kroger Fuel Points website.
The program is awesome as-is but right now it’s even better. Because right now they have a 4X Gas Points promotion. What that means is that you’ll receive 4 points per dollar on gift card purchases from the following brands:
- Cracker Barrel
- Bass Pro
- Google Play
These only happen a couple of times per year so take advantage of it while you can. Stock up on gifts for the holidays, use them for back-to-school shopping, or give yourself a little treat. With the 4 points per dollar, a $25 gift card means 10 cents off per gallon with that one purchase. If you’re already eating lunch every day at Subway, why not buy yourself a gift card to pay for it and score the extra money off at the pump?
