  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

  1. I use this whenever I can and didn’t realize it was going on now, so thanks for bringing it up! Used my $1 off on my last fill-up which brought the price down to $0.72 cents/gal! My entire fill-up (12 gals) was only $9.50. Fantastic!

  2. Looks like this deal isn’t as good as usual, only 4x on restaurants & movie theaters. I usually like to pick up amazon and shell gift cards (to use with my fuel rewards points when I run out of Kroger points).

    Is it your experience that they’ll award 4x for all gift cards regardless of what the advertisement says?

  3. Not all gift cards qualify for Reward Points. The Kroger gift card does not qualify for Reward Points, and certain loadable Visa and MasterCard gift cards do not, either.
