I don’t know about you, but I love saving money. I’m always looking to see how many different ways I can save money when I make any purchase whether it be big or small. The more money I can save the bigger rush I get. I suppose this is one of those times you could say “you know you’re a grown up when…” hehe. In addition to my money saving apps and coupons I have another trick up my sleeve that helps me fill up my gas tank at a steep discount and occasionally for free!
Instead of using cash to shop at my favorite restaurants and retailers I always stop by Giant Eagle to pick up gift cards. I do this because I receive fuelperks! on each purchase, but right now Giant Eagle has amped up the savings. From August 25th through September 7th 2016 you can earn 20¢ fuelperks! for every $50 spent on gift cards at Giant Eagle. This includes all retailer gift cards and open loop gift cards like Visa, American Express, and MasterCard. T-Rex is in need of a new dog bed so I will definitely be swinging by to pick up a Petco gift card first.
Now if you are like me and like to stack up as much savings as absolutely possible you may want to consider making your gift card purchases with your favorite rewards credit card. This way you can also earn points, miles, or a percentage back on your purchase. Did you know some credit cards even offer increased rewards for purchases made at grocery stores?! Here are just a few examples…
Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express – 3% cash back
Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express – 6% cash back
Can’t think of anything you need to buy at this exact moment to take advantage of this amazing offer? Well I honestly can’t believe that, but if so no worries because I have plenty of ideas for you. Stock up now on gifts for the holiday season. Send your college student back to school with some gift cards for their favorite restaurants. Gift cards are a great way to teach kids how to budget for back to school shopping like clothing and school supplies. So what gift cards will you be picking up? The possibilities are limitless and before you know it your gas tank will be full!
