The local grocery store chain called Hy-Vee teamed up with the local convenience store called Casey's and they have a way to get some cents off per gallon if you purchase certain groceries at Hy-Vee. You have to be careful though !! If you are buying a grocery that is more expensive and getting only, say, 2 cents off on their 20 gallon maximum you might not be saving any money. But, by being careful on what I buy, and only purchasing the cents off on stuff I really want, I've been able to save quite a bit.

You're in Florida, so I'll bet you shop Publix, at least occasionally.

When Publix has gas card weekends, they offer $50 gas cards for $40 with a minimum $50 grocery purchase. That's a 20% savings --- with gas at $5.00 per gallon, that equates to about $1.00 per gallon discount.

We buy BOGO's (which also count towards your $50 minimum purchase), and it ends up being a win-win. You've got to be a savvy shopper to get deals at Publix, because yes, on many items they are the higher-priced alternative to other stores.

You can actually purchase one card for each $50 spent, so if you tally up $100, you can buy two cards, and so on.

In our area the 3 main gas cards they sell are Shell, Mobil, and RaceTrac.


Yep. Wife gets those every chance she can. But we can't shop at Publix while driving around the country. Chuck


Can't shop at Publix but you sure can save up the cards and use them anywhere. That's what we do.

Have you checked some of the apps for your phone from the oil companys. For example Exxon/Mobil gives points that give rebates at the pumps when using the app to pay at the pump. Upside is an app that gives cash rebates up to 25 cents a gallon and also a % at restaurants. Can be deposited in your bank account or varios gift cards.

We use the TSD program for the motorhome. It's diesel only and you have to fuel at the truck islands. Last purchase was at a Petro - 63 gals, pump price was $341.27 and our cost was $305.11.

Gassed up my truck at Kroger's tonight and redeemed customer loyalty points. 26.7 gals of regular. Pump price $133, discount price was $122


35 miles from Normal, IL. As close to normal as I'll ever be.

So you paid 20-30% more for groceries to get 9% off on a gallon of gas? Have you been hanging with my wife?

Thanks for some of the suggestions but I am not looking for grocery stores to shop at for gas discounts. I ask about credit cards, so PLEASE keep the posts to that topic. That is what drives me crazy trying to get information on this forum. Chuck

I give up. I guess I'm done here. This is a perfect example why I don't post here anymore. I should have known better. Chuck

C'mon, man...The relative price of groceries wasn't on your need to know list? LOL
If nothing else, it's entertaining watching the Grocery Outlet/Aldi shoppers bicker with the high falootin "name brand" shoopers! Hahaha
