Kroger has returned with a couple of new digital coupons offering 4x fuel points on third party gift cards, as well as fixed-value Visa and Mastercard gift cards. These coupons can be loaded to your account now, but they’re only valid this coming weekend from July 19-21.
- Earn 4x fuel points on third party gift cards at Kroger – direct link to digital coupon.
- Earn 4x fuel points on fixed-value Visa & Mastercard gift cards at Kroger – direct link to digital coupon.
- Offer valid July 19-21, 2019.
- Variable load Visa & Mastercard gift cards are excluded.
These digital coupons are available for Kroger and most (or all?) of its affiliate stores which include Harris Teeter, Fred Meyer, Ralph’s, Smiths and more.
Fuel points can be used to save up to $1 off per gallon on up to 35 gallons, although I got lucky a few months ago with a Kroger gas station that allowed me to redeem more than $1 off during one fill-up.
Buying third party gift cards can save you up to 14%, although that depends on the size of your gas tank(s). For example, buying a $250 gift card will earn you 1,000 fuel points, worth $1 off per gallon. Filling to that 35 gallon limit would save $35, so 14% of the original $250 spend. If your gas tank is smaller though, your savings will be less. For example, if your car takes 15 gallons, you’d save $15 which is only 6%.
The fixed-value Visa and Mastercard gift cards offer a different value proposition due to them having proportionately high activation fees. You can still make a profit though by buying $100 cards and filling up with at least 13.5 gallons.
Note that even though you can load these digital coupons to your account right now, the promotion is only valid this weekend from July 19-21.
