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:

• Spending on Groceries (normal exclusions apply): $1 in Groceries = 1 fuel point.

• Double fuel points for Gift Card purchases (normal exclusions apply). For example, $25 in Gift Cards = 50 fuel points.

• 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.

    One annoying thing is that you don’t get fuel points for Visa gift cards (or Kroger GC)

    I don’t think the 2x is for GCs. Usually they run a 4x promo which does count but the fine print says it isn’t.

    does anyone know which GC count for 2x points if Visa and Kroger CG don’t?

    I was just at Kroger this morning and it is 2x on gift cards (at least for right now). Indy – basically everything except Visa and Kroger GCs (so like gift cards to restaurants or other stores)
