    Default Gas Tip

    Hi all,



    I have a tip to share about saving some money as the pumps. We

    all know the price of gas is causing some pain but we have found a

    way to save. I am not sure how many of you have a speedway or

    marathon near you. Here in Ohio we have speedway. They have rewards

    card where you earn points for buying gas or merchandise at the

    store. Currently they give 5 cents a gallon off for using the

    rewards card. (Not a credit card just a membership card you swipe

    before your purchase) Plus if you buy a gift card they give you $1

    off per $50. So here's what we do...



    Go in buy the $50 gift card at $49 = $1 savings (plus swipe the

    rewards card to earn points for that purchase)



    Then go to the pump and use your gift card to buy the gas. Swipe the

    rewards card to save the .05 cents per gallon. (You get double the

    rewards points for the same $50)



    Those rewards points earn you free gas.



    When I think of some more tips I will send them your way. Good luck

    to all of you.

    If you live in Ohio, you can buy Speedway prepaid ful cards cheaper than that. For some reason the ones at Marc&#39;s save you an additional $.10 off per gallon.

    They are also offering a deal- spend $5 in the gas station on non-

    gas items (snacks, milk, food, drinks, etc), and you'll get a coupon

    good for another $.05 off per gallon for the next fill up. Buy 6

    food club items, and you get a coupon good for either 1 free food

    club item OR $.10 off per gallon on your next fill up. All of these

    coupons are good for up to 10 gallons (so a max of $.50 or $1.00 off

    per gas fill).



    Also- you can stack the coupons. If you only need to get 5 gallons

    of gas, you won't get the most out of the coupon. My husband's car

    is what we drive the most (it's an older escort and gets GREAT

    mileage), but it has a 10 gallon tank is all, so we won't get the

    full value out of the coupon unless we coast in on fumes.



    So, since we only drive the van intermitently, I save all my coupons

    up to use when I need to fill the van up. Last week, gas was $2.84,

    and after the $.05 discount, and all the coupons I had saved up, I

    got 10 gallons of gas at $2.14/gallon.



    By the time we need to fill the van up, I usually have around $.25

    to $.45 off in coupons I'm sitting on.
