We try to buy a walmart gas card every payday. If you have a gift card you receive an extra 3 cents per gallon off. Most of the time they are cheaper, but not always. Also Grocery outlets such as Randalls and Krogers give you a discount based upon how much money you spend in groceries. Usually we get 10 cpg off...that helps too. One other thing I have learned is that if you transfer your prescriptions to Krogers, you get $20 per transfer in free groceries. Up to $60 per month. That helps A LOT!!! Just a couple of suggestions




One more quick thing. My sister has started me in on using coupons. The other day I went grocery shopping and bought $110 worth of groceries and with my coupons (being doubled and tripled) and with my prescription transfer free groceries...I walked out only paying a whopping $17.97. I was SO PROUD of myself. I got a mixer for free because it was priced wrong and at Kroger if something is priced and rings up at a different price...it is FREE!!! Yippee!!

Beware of gas at supermarket outlets. Most are of cheap grade and can do more harm than good.

Usually they get whatever brand is cheaper that week. For instance, Randalls is an unbranded location. If Chevron fuel is cheaper this week, then Randall's will purchase Chevron. If BP is cheaper then they will purchase BP. Being unbranded only means they don't stick with the same brand each week. YOur fuel may be part Chevron, part BP, etc. because it is mixed. I used to work for Chevron Corporation, so I am familiar with these unbranded locations. However, they do not have to uphold the same QC as branded locations. So they aren't as strick about making sure that there isn't water or particulates in their fuel. So yes, you have to be careful. But Walmart is a branded location (Murphy Oil) and I haven't had any problems with Randalls or Krogers. But thanks for the head's up

These are great solutions! I didn't know about the Walmart gift card. We are struggling with gas costs and all of these little things help.

I use speedy rewards also since I buy most of my gas there. I wanted to add a strategy that I use to save more on gas there. What I do is I buy $50 gift cards right before I fill up. I then use that gift card to pay at the pump. I get a 3 cent discount for using the gift card. I am also suppose to get 1000 bonus points for buying a $50 gift card but I just started this and havent seen it post. I also get the points for a normal fill up.
