  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.

  1. I’m confused. So are you saying 2x for buying gift cards (the non variable load type), and an additional 2x (or 4x total) if I buy the gift cards on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays thru Jul 27? I.E are these 2 promos stackable?

  2. FYI – Caution – did you see the rules of the 2x promo through Jul 27 state gift cards are excluded:

    “*Limited time only. Offer may be modified or discontinued at any time without notice. Excludes Pharmacy, Gift Cards, No-Contract Wireless Phones and Airtime Cards, The Little Clinic, Fuel Center purchases and receipt message fuel promotion. Offer not valid in AL, LA, MO. Additional restrictions apply. See store for complete details.

    can anyone report any success with such a promo?

  3. The promotion says – excludes pharmacy and gift cards – a little confused

  4. I’ve been collecting these points for years but I don’t really understand how to redeem them. We get 10 cents off each gallon at our local shell but how does one get a $1/gallon?

  5. Hi HeavenlyJane – Simply go to your nearest Keoger that has a gas station. Then swipe your Kroger card and select the option to redeem the max amount (I.e. $1 off per gallon).

  6. Why throw away money? You show Amazon gift cards, but you can buy these at Staples with an Ink card for 5x instead. You need to spend $500 at Krogers to get $1 per gallon off. If you bought these same gift cards at Staples, you would get 2500 points which could be redeemed for $25 cash. Even better, keep the points for travel where they are worth more. If you want to throw away money, go ahead and buy them at Krogers.
