[Expired] Kroger: 4x Fuel Points on All Gift Cards this Weekend, Includes Visa/MC [2/1-2/3]

Deal has expired, view more Kroger deals by clicking here.

The Offer

Direct link to offer

Check your Kroger coupons for the following offers, valid this weekend (2/1 – 2/3) only:

  • Save a digital coupon to get 4x fuel points on Visa and Mastercard $100, $50, or $25 fixed-value gift cards.
  • Save a digital coupon to get 4x fuel points on third party gift cards. (Should work on all third-party gift cards.)

The Fine Print

  • Points earned in February will be valid through the month of March.
  • Usually, every 1000 fuel points will get you a discount of $1 per gallon with a 35-gallon limit, a max value of $35 per 1000-points, though these details do vary by store and region.
  • Excludes variable-load Visa and Mastercard gift cards.

Our Verdict

Good to have a headsup on this, we’ll repost when it goes live. Make sure to use a credit card that earns at a high rate on grocery store purchases.

Welcome news indeed, though the headline “all gift cards” had me hoping for a second that the 4x on even variable load vgc’s had at last returned. Alas, they’re excluded, as per usual, via the fine print (as you include) . Still, thanks for the advance alert.

Without some inadvertent glitch or a large shift in the MS landscape, I’m sure they will always be excluded.

Is there any benefits buying $100 considering we only receive 400 fuel points vs $5.95 fee or something like that?

If you have a 5% CC with the rebate you essentially buy 400 fuel points for $1. If you max out 35 gallons that earns $14.

If I were to do this I would pay something that doesn’t get larger rebate elsewhere (for me childcare). There are also occasionally coupons that offset some of the fees .

Another I’ve learned is to buy the visa GC, get 400 FP on that, then use that to buy other gift cards and get 400 more.

Was a lot easier when they sold Shell gas.

I do this as well… works like a charm! 🙂

400 fuel points gets you 40 cents off. If you can get all 35 gallons, that’s $14 plus $2-6 in cashback.

Love Kroger and the 4x fuel points. Filled up with 35 gallons in Coeur d’Alene last week for a little over $41.00. Used the 10% off at Kroger coupon yesterday and saved $26.

What did you buy $260 worth… store gift cards?

The gift card didn’t earn points but the rib eyes, BOGO ribs, sodas, laundry detergent, cheese, etc. did. I’d never seen a 10% Kroger discount before and wanted to make it count. Almost everything I bought was on sale, mostly BOGO and multiples of 6. Total coupon savings on the receipt was $107.26 + 223 fuel points.

Ugh, curse my 15 gal Ford Fusion tank! But seriously, I’ll usually scoop up 4,000 fuel points, which’ll be 4x 15 gal fillups, so save $60, at cost of $50~ (sell Amazon at 95%). Good enough I s’pose

Dave, may I ask where you sell Amazon GCs? I sell various GCs on Raise, but their commission is 15%.

You should invest in a few 6-gallon gas cans if you have a place to store them. I have 4 6-gallon gas cans and I am able to max out 35 gallons when I go in my Chrysler 200. This allows me to visit the gas station once a month.

I do the same thing with 5×5 gallon cans and my Mazda 3. Savings paid for the gas cans in 2 months.

Anyone know if I can bring my car and my wife’s car and switch before stopping the pumping?

Brad

I do it all the time. Just be swift about it. The pump has never shutoff on me while swapping cars, but I’m usually moving fast just in case.

Rj
Rj

yes … you can.We stand on opposite sides of the pump and easily fillup 35 between both of our cars

Glad I’m not the only one. And I bring gas cans. We have smaller cars and this gets us in the 30-35 gallon range

15 gal is still better than my 11 gal. So obviously i just pass this sort of deals.

Can this coupon be used to buy more than one gift card in one transaction? The Ralph’s coupon states “when you buy a participating gift card”. No mention of multiple items in one transaction like the other coupons.

Multiple gift cards are fine, done it many times.

I don’t see where it excludes variables from the other offer (not the 25,50,100)

Can the VGCs from Kroger (usbank it looks like) be used for serve loads?
I’m in my first year with Discover IT ($10 cash back on groceries this quarter), so this should work nicely for me.

bought 4 visa 100 gift card (fixed value) and got 1600 point today, loaded them up to my green serve at family dollar for free after about 1 hour. 1st FD new cashier said cash(per policy) only even though i loaded many time there with pleasant experiences, said thanks and went another FD 5 miles away and loaded them on my 2 serve cards without any issue. with loading serve, its always YMMV.
