Only fixed cards up to $100 it says. Might want to try the $200 if they still sell them to see if that works.

Ahhhh, reminiscing the good days when the variables counted. Now that was slick.

Just went to Kroger, purchased 2 $100 Visa Gift cards, and the receipt shows 1,696 fuel points. It is possible that the system combines both of 4x fuel points for gift cards that ends either today or tomorrow and the 4x fuel points for Visa, Mastercard, and Amex gift cards.

Haha, thank you for posting this. It is even better than expected as the points multiply even higher. I bought one $100 card and got 600 points. Hmmm, only 6x, well something is screwed up. So I bought 4 more (thinking 6x for 2400 more points) and got 4800 points (12x). It looks like the multiple increases by 2 every card you add. Too bad it ends tonight.

Looks like bug still there, brought 100 X 3 visa cards and got 2400 points. Then brought 100 X 2 visa cards and got another 1200 points. So bug is still there, if anyone wants to take advantage, then go for it. And who knows they may fix the points in the account as well once they fix the bug!
Question, how to liquidate? It says visa debit but no mention of any PIN. Is is last 4 of card number, or we just cannot liquidate these by buying MO at grocery store?

I bought the US bank mastercard. The pin is located on a white card inside. You have to dig for it as it wasn't obvious.

Never bought MasterCard gift cards but that's consistent with my experience with Visa gift cards. Each Visa gift card sold at Kroger has its PIN printed on a separate perforated card and enclosed in the package. Make sure to retrieve the PIN, if you intended to use the card like a debit card, by tearing off the PIN card from the package. The Visa gift cards sold at Staples have the last 4 digits of each card's number as the initial PIN.

Can you use credit cards to buy gift cards? If not, the fees make this deal a wash since you don't get cash back points.

Even with a credit card, the break even is 16 gallons.
