Last year 2 of my girls were asked to bring gift cards to school for their teacher’s Christmas gifts. The creative room moms had found the idea to make a gift card tree and so that was the teacher’s Christmas gift. Each family sent in a gift card and a miniature Christmas tree was decorated with tons of gift cards, it was so cute! When I buy gift cards I always go to Kroger that way I earn fuel rewards saving me even more money. I also try to plan ahead my purchases that way I can save money on gas by buying gift cards at Kroger first! This can be especially beneficial at Christmas time since I am making more purchases than usual and using more gas as I run around to all the stores. Did you know that you can save up to 12% by buying gift cards at your local Kroger grocery store BEFORE you shop or eat out? We always stop by Kroger on our way to pickup pizza, gotta get the fuel points by buying a gift card first!
Earn Fuel Points: Earn 4x Fuel Points on gift cards at Kroger. All gift cards included EXCEPT: Kroger gift cards, open loop gift cards (like MasterCard), prepaid debit cards & wireless cards.
Earn Credit Card Rewards: By using your favorite rewards credit card to purchase, you can earn points, miles or a percentage back on your purchase.Some credit cards even offer increased rewards for purchases made at grocery. For example, the Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express offers 3% cash back on groceries, and the Blue Cash Preferred® Card offers a whopping 6% cash back! Capital One QuicksilverOne®, AMEX EveryDay® and Citi® Hilton HHonors credit cards also offer increased rewards for grocery purchases.So $6 in fuel rewards on a 15 gallon tank ($.40 x 15) + $6 back if you earn 6% cash back on credit card grocery purchases = $12 in savings on a $100 gift card!
As you can see there is really no reason not to stop by Kroger before you make your purchases. We are huge Amazon shoppers and we buy amazon gift cards every time we go to Kroger and then load up our account. That way when I need to purchase something right away I already have the credits loaded, no need to run to Kroger to grab an Amazon gift card.
