Shopping at Kroger can mean lots of extra savings on gas right now!  They have a few different Fuel Point promotions that you can take advantage of (and even combine) to save up to $1 off a gallon.

In case you’ve never used their Fuel Points, here’s the basics you should now… you earn 1 point for every $1 spent at Kroger.  100 points is equal to 10¢ off per gallon of gas up to 35 gallons.  You can save up your points and use up to 1,000 points to save $1 off per gallon.  Your points are good through the following month after you earn them.

Earn Extra Fuel Points

Double Points With Private Selection Products
Starting now through 10/18, earn 2 points for every $1 spent on Private Selection products!  This is one of the Kroger Labels you’ll find all over the store.  Double points on Private Selections items is running at all Kroger stores but does exclude Ralph’s, Fred Meyers and Quality Food Centers.

4X Points With Gift Cards
Load a new Kroger Digital coupon and you’ll earn 4 times the fuel points when you buy gift cards from 9/20-9/27 and again 10/11-10/18.  That means you earn 200 points when you buy $50 in gift cards!  If you need gift cards outside of those weeks you’ll still earn double points on them regularly.

50 Points With Survey
Get half way to your first 10¢ savings when you submit the survey on the bottom of your receipt.  Each survey earns 50 fuel points.  You can earn this once every 7 days.  If you shopped every week, that would be 200 points a month!  I just did the survey on my receipt and it took about 3 minutes (I also had a super sweet cashier so it was great to give her praise too).

50 Points with Prescriptions
For every qualifying prescription you fill at a Kroger Pharmacy you’ll earn 50 Fuel Points.  This is for prescriptions not using federally funded programs.

With all these ways to rack up the fuel points the real question is… do you save them or use them as you earn them?  I tend to use mine as soon as I earn them!

      When doing the survey, if you mention the employee name in a positive way, they get incentives as well! Win, win!

      I use fuel points as I get them. If I need to fill up before I accumulate 100, I buy a Shell gift card. I get double or quadruple fuel points and then get to use them at Shell!
