For those in the know, Kroger Fuel points is a great way to save up to $1 off each gallon of gas.

How Does Fuel Points Work?

Fuel points works by awarding points for spending at Kroger. Then the customer can redeem points for a $ amount off each gallon of gas.

Earning rates are as follows:

  1. Spending on Groceries (normal exclusions apply): $1 in Groceries = 1 fuel point.
  2. Double fuel points for Gift Card purchases (normal exclusions apply). For example, $25 in Gift Cards = 50 fuel points.
  3. Non-federally funded Prescriptions: 1 Prescription = 50 fuel points. a. As of August 1, 2012, federally funded Prescriptions earn 1 point for every $1 of your out-of-pocket costs for new, transferred and refilled Prescriptions

Why Should I Care?

The best part, is Kroger counts gift cards purchased in the grocery store as spend towards the fuel points. In fact, they give you more fuel points for purchasing gift cards.

So you can earn up to a $1 back on each gallon of gas, by making purchases in store on gift cards for stores you’d spend money at anyway. Not to mention if you have a credit card that gives cash back on grocery store purchases, you can save even more.

    I buy US Bank Visa gift cards at Kroger in Georgia and call the number on the receipt to create a PIN. Unfortunately Kroger has signs posted that indicate these cards are not eligible for fuel points. But it helped me meet 60K in spend on the Amex Reserve card in 3 months!

    @ Wes, can you load the visa to BB and what is the max amount you can load and buy at 1 time?

    In California fuel points earned at Ralphs (Kroger subsidiary) are redeemable at Shell stations, so you can double dip by paying for the gas with Shell gift cards purchased at Staples with Ink.

    They do carry PIN-enabled GCs and usually (not always) accept credit card as payment. Cashier-dependent, I think.

    @Carlos, I load to BB using the kiosks at Wal-Mart AFTER calling to create a PIN. I don’t know if there is a limit to how much you can buy but there is a limit of $1K you can load in a day.
