The Kroger family of grocery store brands is running a bunch of gift card deals through 11/27/17 – such as saving $15 on your grocery purchase when you buy $100 or more in Best Buy gift cards — and those deals stack with 4x fuel points on gift cards, which is separately available through 12/12/17. There are some great opportunities to save on gift cards for your holiday shopping and some may even be good enough to resell.
- 4x fuel points when you buy a participating gift card through 12/12/17 at Kroger / affiliated stores (unlimited use)
- Many concurrent gift card deals are available through 11/27/17

There are a bunch of specials on gift cards available through the 27th. Doctor of Credit has a full list. The Best Buy deal looks particularly good as you’ll save $15 on a grocery purchase for buying $100 in Best Buy gift cards:
That’s not a bad deal at all. Normal public resale rates for Best Buy gift cards are as high as 89.5%, meaning that you can get $89.50 for your $100 in Best Buy gift cards if you were to sell them and you’d be $5.50 ahead on your groceries — not including the 4x fuel points and the rewards you earn by using a credit card that earns a good Category Bonus at the grocery store.
Depending on the denominations you can find, eBay and Home Depot gift cards may also work out as a break-even or slightly profitable deal if you have any bulk reselling relationships.
Since every 1,000 fuel points gets you $1 off per gallon, buying $250 in gift cards could help you save up to $35 at the pump (usually a 35-gallon limit). Of course, I wouldn’t bring our Toyota Yaris on fill-up day if I wanted to maximize that.
Instead, I’d bring our truck and fill it up along with a gas can or two for lawn equipment so that I could get at least $20 or so in value out of the fuel points. Unfortunately, I don’t live near Kroger, so I won’t be participating in this particular promotion. If you do have a participating store nearby, it’s probably worth picking up a couple of gift cards with your grocery shopping this weekend.
