It’s summer time, which for our family means lots of road trips! While we don’t have any BIG vacations planned this year, we are enjoying lots of little trips around Washington and Oregon (because hello, how gorgeous is the PNW this time of year?!) But lots of little trips can add up, especially at the pump. So of course I was excited to work with Safeway (our go-to grocery store already) to learn more about their Fuel Rewards program.
On a recent road trip working from the backseat (hooray for in-car wifi!)
Basically, when you shop at Safeway and use your Safeway Club Card you earn Gas Reward Points. How do Reward Points save money at the pump? Every 100 points gets you a 10¢ per gallon Reward for a single fill-up at a Safeway gas station. You can use your points in increments of 100:
• 100 points = 10¢ per gallon Reward
• 200 points = 20¢ per gallon Reward
• 500 points = 50¢ per gallon Reward
• 1000 points = $1 per gallon Reward
While that is already some great savings on gas, now through Labor Day, Safeway is running a 4X Fuel event on all closed loop gift cards purchased in their store. So if you’re going to buy a present for someone in your family, or better yet, yourself (!), why not get more bang for your buck and buy a gift card to that retailer first? Use the gift card for the purchase you were already going to make and save money at the pump, too!
You can find gift cards to tons of different retailers at the Gift Card Mall located inside participating Safeway stores. Everything from restaurants to movies, iTunes to clothing stores. Check out the list of brands here and if you’re planning to make a purchase at any of these retailers already, might as well purchase a gift card and save on gas too.
Don’t want to carry around a bunch of gift cards in your wallet? Then be sure to check out GoWallet. With GoWallet you can add all your gift cards to your GoWallet account and free yourself from searching through fat wallets and cluttered drawers to find your cards. View all your card information right from GoWallet whenever you want. Pretty cool!
