Consider the gas stations at grocery stores and wholesale clubs. Gas prices there are usually lower than the market average. Here are some money saving tips that you might not be aware of:
- Check out store discount cards. At some grocery stores, including Wal-Mart stores, you can save 3 cents a gallon when you use their discount card.
- It's important to ALWAYS check your cash register receipt and those sometimes annoying extra advertisements that print out at the register. They sometimes offer fuel discounts and coupons that you might overlook if you're not careful.
- Also ask store personnel if they have special promotions available for their fuel centers. These promotions are available at selected stores across the country. You can find information in store advertisements and on their Web sites.
- Store promotions often reward shoppers with additional discounts on gas when they spend a minimum amount on groceries.
Some stores that offer these discounts are Kroger, Albertsons, Giant Eagle, and Tom Thumb/Randall/Safeway stores. It's different in certain parts of the country. So just ask at your store.
So there you have it....so get out their and shop....and save on gas while you're at it!
