    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 5ยข 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)
