The 15+ Best Gas Station Rewards… Guaranteed!

Some of the links inside this post may be from a sponsor. Advertising Disclosure

I know not all of you own your car, but I’m guessing most of you do.  If you do, then this post is designed just for you since your car more than likely needs gas, unless it’s a Tesla, Volt or electric, of course.

Instead of pulling up to any old gas station and filling up, I wanted to talk about the many gas station reward programs that can help you save on your fillups.  It’s as easy as signing up and using your card/number at the pump.

All of these programs I’m about to mention are very easy to use and can help you save up to $100+ in a given year, I promise you that much.  You will save money, period.

So, no matter where you live and what you drive, these gas station reward programs may be one to consider to help you save big.

NOTE:  As with all rewards programs, it’s best to pick out one so that you can maximize the benefits, but there’s nothing stopping you from signing up for more than one to save at more than one place.

Which Gas Station Has the Best Rewards Program?

GasBuddy

I’m listing GasBuddy first as I find this card to be the best program as you can use it at ANY gas station.  Unlike the other programs I mention here, you will be restricted to a gas station you can use, but this isn’t the case with the “Pay with GasBuddy” program.

Here’s how it works…

Whenever you pay with your GasBuddy card, you will save $0.05 per gallon on every fill-up, that’s it.  The only caveat here is that you need to link your checking account in order for it to work.  If you don’t mind doing this, then you simply swipe your card at the pump and save.

Aside from the free program mentioned, they also offer two premium accounts, ranging from $4.99 to $6.99 per month, which can save you $0.20 per gallon at any gas station, up to 40 gallons per month.



BP Driver Rewards

NOTE:  BP Driver Rewards is changing on September 30, 2019, so this may be out of date.

The BP Driver Rewards program will offer you $0.10 off per gallon for every $100 you spend up to 20 gallons.

Also, if you’re a frequent flyer with United Airlines, you can also earn two MileagePlus miles per gallon for regular/midgrade fuel or three MileagePlus miles if you use the premium-grade fuel.  Doing the math, 60 MileagePlus miles will get you $0.50 off per gallon, up to 20 gallons per fill-up.

To sign up for the program as well as find a station near you, follow the URL below.  You can also download the BPme app, which can help you find a local BP station and even let you pay at the pump with your phone.

Chevron Gas Rewards

Chevron partnered with Safeway grocery stores and even other retailers to help you earn free gas while you shop.

Without the credit card, though, you can earn $0.10 off per gallon for every $100 spent at Albertsons and Safeway.  If you do sign up for the credit card, you can save up to $0.20 per gallon for every $1,000 spent outside of fuel merchants in addition to $0.03 per gallon in fuel credits for every Chevron/Texaco fill-up.

If you don’t want the credit card and/or don’t have a Safeway account, then you can sign up for the ExtraMile Extra Rewards, a free program that offers “Shields” for purchases you make in the gas station

Circle K Easy Rewards

The free Circle K Easy Rewards program will give you 10 points per gallon and another 20 points per dollar spent on all food, snacks and non-alcoholic beverages.  And, after you earn 2,000 points, you can get $2 off your purchases.  It’s as easy as that.

Like many of these gas rewards programs, Circle K also offers club rewards for returning customers, special offers and even the opportunity to enter sweepstakes, and you can view them right away once you download the app.

You can either sign up via the link below or you can download the app to start the sign-up process.

Exxon Mobil Rewards+™

In the past, the Exxon Mobil Rewards+™ was part of the now-defunct Plenti program, but since then, they have branched into its own unique program.

With the free Exxon Mobil Rewards+™ card, you earn three points for every gallon you pump and another two points for every dollar spent on drinks and more.  However, if you fill up with Synergy Supreme+™ premium gas at least three times in a 30-day period, then the gas station will upgrade you to Premium status, wherein you can earn six points per gallon.  You will need to fill up at least three times a month to maintain this status.

Once you earn 100 points, you can then redeem them for gas, car washes, drinks, snacks and more.  In short, every 100 points will get you $1 off your purchase.

To sign up, you can sign up online or even visit a local Exxon Mobil gas station to receive a free card you can register online.  If registering online, they do ask that you wait up to three weeks to save your card.  You can follow the link below for more information as well as the sign-up sheet.

Flying J

If you have ever gone on a road trip, there’s probably a good chance you saw a Flying J off the interstate.  The company has more than 650+ locations and continues to expand across the United States.

Even though the gas station likes to cater to professional truckers, they do offer a rewards program designed for the everyday customer.  Known as the Preferred Customer Rewards program, you can earn myRewards points for every purchase you make as well as save up $0.03 per gallon when using the myPilot app.

Other features include special birthday rewards during your birthday month and exclusive member rewards, such as 10% off your Denny’s restaurant check.

Download the Flying J app today and get a free drink when you sign up for the first time.

Kroger

The Kroger family of stores offers a very simple gas rewards program whenever you shop in-store.  This is the one I personally use and find it to be good enough for me since I do a lot of my shopping at a Kroger store.

In short, for every $1 you spend at Kroger and use your Shopper’s Card, you will earn 1 fuel point.  For every 100 points you earn, you can then get $0.10 per gallon, up to $1 per fill-up.

Aside from every $1 spent, the company also offers special bonuses, such as up to four times the points when you buy select gift cards and even bonus points on qualifying prescriptions.



Kum & Go

If you download the app and join the “&Rewards” program, you can earn points for every dollar spent at the gas station.

According to the company, you can earn five points for every $1 spent in-store and another two points for every gallon of fuel.  Once you earn 250 points, you can then get a new reward to choose from.  Rewards vary, but it can be anything from getting money off your purchase or free food.

Like many of these gas station rewards, you can also gain access to exclusive discounts and rewards.

Love’s

The Love’s Rewards program is designed for professional drivers, but I will include it here anyway as it does offer some perks and you may be able to take advantage.

Depending on your member status, you can earn anywhere from one to four points per gallon/dollar spent, earning free showers, free drinks and more.  For example, if you fill up with more than 500 gallons in a month, you can get 2 points per gallon.

Once you earn 500 points, you can start to redeem points.

Again, you don’t need to be a professional as you can still earn one point per dollar, regardless of how much you fill up or spend.  Your points never expire as long as you don’t go inactive for more than 365 days.

Marathon

The Marathon Make it Count fuel rewards program “makes every visit count.”

And, every time you make a purchase, you will earn a number of points, in which can then be transferred to a rewards program of your choice, from Southwest airlines to Domino’s gift cards, to name a few.

Unlike most of these gas station rewards programs that give you cashback of sorts only at the gas station, you can take your points and spend them elsewhere if you wish.  Looking at the list, which you can view below, there were quite a few third-party programs you may already be a member of.

Maverik

This gas station brand is only located in the West, so it may not be a familiar name to some of you.  But, if you have one nearby, you may want to sign up for the gas station’s free Adventure Club.

As an Adventure Club member, you will save up to $0.06 per gallon, depending on the gas you use as well as earn “TrailPoints” for every purchase you make inside the station.  You can then turn these TrailPoints to enter sweepstakes and even use them for various purchases inside the gas station, such as food, drinks, etc.

The club currently has two club offerings:  the Adventure Club card, which offers $0.02 off per gallon, while the Nitro Adventure Club card offers $0.06 per gallon, plus double Trial Points for every purchase, $1 fountain drinks and price matching opportunities.  To qualify for the Nitro, all you need to do is link your checking account and use that card to pay whenever you get gas and/or make a purchase.

Phillips 66

The Phillips 66 “KickBack Rewards” card lets you earn points on typical purchases, such as gas fill-ups and even in-store purchases.   Then, once you earn enough points, you can use your points just like cash.

To signup, you can pick up a free card at any Phillips 66 station nationwide and then register it online via the link below.

Once it’s activated, you can use the card at the pump as you would your credit card to start earning points for your purchases.

Shell Fuel Rewards

Shell offers instant Gold Status when you sign up for a free Fuel Rewards card via the link below.  However, as per the terms, they will downgrade you to the Silver membership if you don’t make at least six qualifying fuel purchases for the next three months.  So, like Maverik, they offer two membership options, but you must meet the restrictions to keep your Gold status.

As a Gold member, you will receive at least $0.05 off per gallon for every $50 you spend, while Silver members will receive $0.03 off per gallon.

As another benefit, you can save $0.10 per gallon for every $50 you spend at more than $10,000 restaurants and $0.05 per gallon for every $50 you spend on travel-related purchases when you link your Mastercard, Visa or American Express card.   So, for instance, if you spent $50 at a restaurant and another $100 on travel, that’s an additional $0.20 off per gallon on your next fill-up.

Speedway

Speedway is yet another gas station you may have never heard of before, mostly because they are located on the east coast.

And, if you’re lucky enough to have one, they offer a fantastic, free gas rewards program known as Speedy Rewards.  In fact, they claim to be the #1 program.

As a Speedy Rewards member, you will earn 10 points per gallon and another 20 points per dollar spent on merchandise.   You can also earn bonus points when you buy certain items.

You can then redeem those points to get free stuff or even get merchandise.  Right on the app, you can check out the current offerings, and it will be up to you to decide what you want to spend your money on.  There’s also a kiosk inside where you can view the offerings as well.  It can be anything from free drinks to candy.

Joining the program is 100% free and only takes a minute to do.

Final Thoughts

No matter where you live, I can assure you that there’s a gas station rewards program you can take advantage of as gas stations seem to be on almost every block.  Worst case, you can always sign up for the GasBuddy program as it can be used at ANY gas station.

Take a look at the many reward programs I mentioned, and if one of these gas stations are nearby, consider signing up and making it a habit to fill up there every time.

While you won’t save a ton, the points do add up for some rewards here and there!
