      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.
