Earn 4x the Fuel Points thru October 29, plus enter to win $50 Safeway gift card

My husband, being a very good sport about getting his photo taken for this post, illustrating our excitement over a 20 cent fuel discount. 🙂

Gas is so expensive these days! I try to save every chance I get and one way to save at the pump is with store discounts – like the Safeway fuel discount! I love this discount and I’m excited to share that this month you can earn 4x the points when you buy gift cards – which means you can rack up fuel discounts at an even greater rate.

Here’s how the program REGULARLY works, when you shop at Safeway using your Club card:

  • Each $1 spent on groceries = 1 point
  • Each $1 spent on qualifying gift cards * = 2 points
  • Each prescription filled = 50 points

Every 100 points you get, you save 10¢ off per gallon for a single fill-up at a Safeway gas station. You can use your points in increments of 100 and use up to 1000 points for a single fill-up.

  • 100 points = 10¢ off per gallon
  • 200 points = 20¢ off per gallon
  • 500 points = 50¢ off per gallon
  • 1000 points = $1 off per gallon

But this month the program gets even better for gift card purchases. Now through October 29, earn 4x Gas Reward Points when you purchase qualifying gift cards! For every $1 you spend, you’ll earn four points. You can buy gift cards and use like cash to quickly earn Gas Reward Points. So if you bought a $25 gift card (to iTunes, Olive Garden, Lowes, etc.) you would get a 100 points! This gets you a 10 cent off per gallon discount.

  • Each $1 spent on qualifying gift cards * = 2 points  4 POINTS (through October 29)

Make the most of promotions like this! If you know you’re going to be spending $50 at Lowes in the near future, or $50 on Amazon, first buy your gift card at Safeway. You’ll rack up a 20 cent fuel discount for buying that $50 gift card and if you were going to spend it anyway – you might as well earn the extra bonus. This could apply to any retailer or restaurant that you plan on spending money at in the near future.

I picked up a $50 Amazon gift card, which I plan to use on diapers and wipes and we ended up getting a 20 cent discount to fill up the car!

Safeway provided me with a $50 Safeway gift card to try out their 4x points promotion. They did not write, edit or provide any part of this review – it’s all my opinion/thoughts.
