When you shop at Kroger, with every purchase you earn fuel points. Every $100 that you spend you get .10 off a gallon at the Kroger Fuel Center. A lot of the time Kroger will run specials on their gift cards by giving you extra fuel points for the value of the gift card.
Right now through September 8, 2012 you can choose from 100s of gift cards and get 4X the amount of the card in fuel points.
Make a list of all the places you will be spending money, such as back to school clothes, birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, restaurants, etc….. Go ahead and purchase what you have budgeted for and get the bonus of the fuel points.
Every little discount helps when you are filling up that tank.
