Digital coupon here [softcoin.com], keep in mind that this is a digital coupon that must be activated to your Kroger account before using.

If you don't already buy gift cards at Kroger for fuel points I'd highly recommend looking into it as it can be a BIG TIME money saver. For me it's been a sure fire way to get significant discounts on gift cards for Amazon and eBay, among others. If you buy $250 worth of gift cards during a 4x promo you will save $1/gallon on gas which in turn can save $35 in gas assuming you buy the max allowable 35 gallons (I do this every time we fill up by bringing two cars plus two gas cans). This works out to a minimum 14% savings, if you use a cashback type of credit card when paying for the gift cards your savings will be even higher, I use an Amex that gives 5% cashback for grocery purchases so my total savings are 19%, i.e. all the gift cards that I'm buying at Kroger including eBay and Amazon are being bought for 81 cents on the dollar.

Kroger fine print:[I] CARDS HAVE NO VALUE UNTIL ACTIVATED. TERMS AND RESTRICTIONS APPLY. Only purchases made with your Shopper's Card from The Kroger Co. Family of Stores or 1-2-3 REWARDS(R) Visa(R) are eligible. Excludes The Kroger Co.

Offer may be modified or discontinued at any time without notice. Fuel discounts are limited to up to 35 gallons of fuel per purchase, subject to fraud prevention limits on the amount of purchase. Not valid where prohibited by law. Subject to availability. See Gift Cards for details, terms, conditions and (if applicable) fees. All trademarks are property of their respective owners. Third party participants are not a sponsor of the promotion. Product and offer may not be available in all states. Wireless phones & airtime cards are excluded from this promotion. Selling or purchasing fuel points is prohibited. Fuel redemption offer cannot be combined with any other discounts. No discounts to dealers, wholesalers or fleet programs. No cash back. Not valid where prohibited by law. We may suspend or remove you from the fuel program due to violation of these terms or because of fraudulent activity or suspected fraudulent activity.

I never thought of filling up two cars at once, that's a great idea!
So, check my math, if I buy $250 in Amazon gift cards, I'll earn 1,000 fuel points, which will get me the maximum of $1 off per gallon, is that right? If I buy $500 in gift cards, can I do two 35 gallon fill-ups and earn $35 off on each of them?

Does this only work at Kroger grocery stores? We don't have them here in this state don't think. We only have their gas stations and pharmacy and no idea if those sell gift cards...they're all in the next city over.

Here's the basic FAQ [kroger.com], but lets break it down further.
  1. $1 = 1 point
  2. 100 points = .10c savings
  3. 100$ spent = 100 points = .10c savings
    Gift cards normally equate to 2x points so:
    $100 gift card = 200 points = .20c savings

With this current promotion, you get double (2x) the gift card points (2x) or 4x points. So:
$100 gift card = 400 points = .40c savings
$250 gift card (max) = 1000 points = $1 savings

You can choose to get $1 off at the pump all at once or use .50c (500) worth of points on 2 fill ups or .25c (250) worth of points across 4 fillups.

No, you use up the discount in one gas transaction.
You have to park your cars close to the same gas pump. And don't hang the pump handle back in between fills.

That is correct. Remember that your points will expire on August 31st if not used.

We have always done 2 cars, but just recently started 3 with my bestie's daughter just getting her first car...nothing like filling it up for $8-10. Check with your local Kroger, because you can only buy so many gals at that discounted amount.

that's $75 , and it pays off easily if you can buy gcs at Kroger and spend them instead paying using cc. GCs can be visa gcs or merchant gcs. but fuel points are only for merchant gcs
