Kroger 4X fuel points on Amazon gift card (possible YMMV)

+10 Deal Score
11,187 Views
I bought $100 Amazon (fixed face value) and $150 TRU yesterday and got 700 points. Looks like the amazon gift card earned 4X points. Today I went to another Kroger and bought $200 Amazon gift card (variable face value) and confirmed it. See the receipt for details.

Not sure about other gift cards except TRU (2X points).

If you have Amex Blue Sky preferred, get an extra 6% back at grocery stores (even gift card purchases)

If you have Amex Blue Sky cash, you'll get 3%. --- Up to $6,000 each year on each.

Buy $250 of gc's: 6% back from Amex Blue Sky Preferred + ~ 14% back if you utilize $1 off all 35 gallons.

$250 of Amazon gc's for $200 ($15 Amex + $35 off gas)

I do not recall adding any such coupon to my account.

GA. I just checked my account and did not see any related coupon.

If I stack up a bunch of points I usually just fill up both my truck and my wife's car at the same time. Smilie

Otherwise, time to keep checking sears for surprise points and stock up on gas cans. Big Grin

The display says something like 4x points on games and streaming music and video. I got the 4x points on a "Kindle Fire" gc -- I imagine all Amazon GCs will work; I just played it safe.

BTW, you do NOT earn any points buying Kroger GCs or Visa/MC/Amex GCs. However, for those of using credit cards with bonus points for grocery store purchases, it's worth buying a Kroger GC to pay for the after-points gas total: Kroger gas gets reported to credit card merchants as a "miscellaneous" purchase and not as a a gas station. So, even if your credit card gives you 2% or 3% on gas station purchases, you just get 1% (or whatever) at Kroger Gas Stations.

Might have something to do with this. I received the promo on two different accounts and did not have to add any coupons. This is for Fry's Food in Arizona.

According to the fine print, ONLY the "Kindle Fire" gift cards qualify for the promotion. My store conveniently doesn't have any. Has anyone tried other flavors of Amazon gift cards?

In my experience, its just marketing text. Essentially, all Amazon cards labelled in different ways is still an Amazon gift card. You should get the 4x during the promotional period.
