Hey guys,
Thought I'd pass along an easy way to get a 4% discount on your gas. At our Speedway gas stations, they sell a $50 gas card for $48. That's like getting $2.25/gallon gas for 9 cents per gallon off. I bought $400 in two cards (one for me, one for my wife) for $384.

Every little bit helps!

George

Citibank has a credit card called the Dividend card. It gives you 5% off of all gas purchases no matter what brand or station. I used it all last summer. They sent me a couple hundred dollars. The way prices are going they will be sending me a lot more this year. You can use this card for anything but I use it just for gas and the monthly statements keep track of my business gas.

Rod, do they have Valero in NJ? They have similar cards, but I think you end up saving 5¢ a gallon with them.

Hess gas stations have a card and for the first 90 days after you open up an account its 10% off every purchase made at the Hess station. 5% after the 90 days are up. Ive been using it and saved a pile of money.

Use the Citibank card to purchase the Speedway gift card - it would still show up as a gas station purchase and should get you your 5% cash back, plus the Speedway discount. Assuming you have a Speedway near you that is....

There is no Speedway near here. But that is a clever idea. It would almost make the gas free(Ha!)

Smith's Supermarkerts (Kroger) gives a 10cents a gallon off with a $25 dollar purchase. When we do our shopping we split up the order to get more coupons. They are good for a month and here they will take them even if they are expired. We can also use them at Mini Mart (Kroger also)

Speedway is a division of Marathon Oil. The gift cards (gas cards) are available from thousands of Marathon stations and their subsidaries nationwide. The cards and info can be found here:

What about Sams Club ?

Sams Club/Walmart is a national company and as such is prohibited from selling gas in Maryland. There was a Sams Club selling it locally but just as soon as one of the independant station owners complained the state made them yank the pumps. All of our stations like Shell, BP, Citgo, etc.. are independantly owned and operated.
