(EXPIRED) Kroger 4x fuel points promo: Visa, Mastercard, 3rd party [until 8/13]

Kroger is once again offering 4x fuel points on gift cards — this time both on 3rd party gift cards and on fixed-denomination Mastercard or Visa gift cards. The latest coupon is valid until August 13, 2019. This can certainly make for some great net discounts if you have a use for the fuel points and it can mean racking up some easy rewards if you’re using a credit card that earns one of the best category bonuses at US Supermarkets. This could also make for a great stack with Dosh for those targeted for 10% back or Ibotta for those targeted for 8% back at Kroger (though note that the terms on those offers exclude GC purchases, so YMMV as I have not kept up with any data points on those offers).


The Deal

  • Kroger (and presumably affiliates) is offering 4x fuel points this weekend on both third party and Visa or Mastercard gift cards (note: only on fixed-value denomination Visa and Mastercards) when you load the associated coupons.

Key Details

  • Valid until August 13, 2019
  • Must sign in and load coupons prior to purchase
  • Visa and Mastercard offer only applies to fixed-denomination cards (excludes variable-load Visa and Mastercards)

Quick Thoughts

If you have a use for fuel points, this promo can certainly be well worthwhile. A $250 purchase will yield 1,000 fuel points, good for $1 off per gallon on up to 35 gallons. YMMV in terms of the max amount you can use in a single fill-up — while some areas cap your discount at a max of $1 off per gallon, others don’t have that restriction.

I got well over a dollar off per gallon on this fill-up last year.

Even at just $1 off per gallon and a fill-up of just 20 gallons, you’d essentially be saving $20 with a $250 gift card purchase. That’s enough to mitigate the fees on the Visa and Mastercard gift cards. A little further effort to maximize and you may even be able to resell some gift cards for a profit.

Of course, the added benefit here is the ability to take advantage of a nice category bonus on your favorite card to use at the grocery store. You have a number of options there; check out our Best Category Bonuses page to see some of them.

Keep in mind that fuel points expire on the last day of the month following the month in which they are earned — so these fuel points would expire 9/30/19.

The most recent times Kroger ran coupons for both third-party and Visa and Mastercard gift cards concurrently were:

  • July 17-19, 2019
  • May 24-27, 2019

I wish Kroger accepted Visa cards. Missing the ability to use my Freedom this quarter!


As always, thanks for the heads up on these promos. Will make good use of it! 🙂


Please change dates in the Title.


Needed 2 appliances at Lowes. Bought $1,250 of Lowes GC with my Amex Gold. My fill up is about 25 gallons, so that was $125 off gas and 5,000 mr points. Stacked it with a 10% off coupon for $.99 from eBay, So just about $375 back/off FTW!
