4x fuel points on Visa, Mastercard, 3rd party gift cards at Kroger [Ends 4/15]

It should go without saying that if you don’t need to go out, it’s better to stay at home right now. Still, most of us don’t have a fridge that’s big enough to last without any trips to the grocery store. If you’re going to Kroger for groceries anyway, you should check for a digital coupon for 4x fuel points on gift cards, which includes both 3rd party cards and fixed-denomination Visa and Mastercard gift cards. Additionally, I had a coupon for 200 extra fuel points on a Visa or Mastercard gift card (which would make for a total of 6x on a $100 card), though that last coupon expires 3/31. 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.

 

The Deal

Key Details

  • Expires 4/15/20
  • 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.

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.

Check your account for other gift-card-related coupons as well as some people are reporting fixed bonuses on some cards or other discounts. For example, I had a coupon good for 200 additional fuel points on a Visa or Mastercard gift card that expires tomorrow.

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 fuel points earned during March will expire on 4/30/20 and fuel points earned in April will expire on 5/31/20.

  • January 30 – Feb 2, 2020

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!

[…] Smith’s, King Soopers, etc. That’s because they’re currently offering 4x fuel points on all third party gift card purchases. That can save you up to 14% on gas, so if you’re able to max out the fuel points then […]
