I use several rewards programs. The primary one I use is called Fuel Perks, which is associated with the Winn Dixie grocery chain in Georgia and Florida. Using it, I got gas for $.0549 a gallon ($3.399 on the pump) when I filled my tank yestereve. Total cost: $10.98.

I also use the fuel rewards program associated with Kroger stores.

I have a "Express Points" card from Friendly Express, a convenience store chain located primarily in SE Georgia.

Finally, there are two other convience store chains (Flash Foods and Parkers) in my area that offer discouts for fuel purchased at their stores. The catch is you must link your bank account to their loyalty cards, which can then be used as debit cards for transactions in their stores.

Yes, FRN - saves a minimum of 3 cents per gal at participating Shell stations. More if you participate in their MasterCard program.

I work for a company that gives their customers a rewards card worth .09 cents off per gallon at any Super America location. As a employee I get that same rewards card for free and I use it all the time.

I used to Giant Eagle Fuel Perks but now that I have a diesel car they are essentially worthless as the only station near me is not really near me and the diesel pump is located off to the side with the only access being to back up to it! And if you miss you are going to hit two solid posts and get curb rash on your wheels so forget that.

Turns out to be a good thing, the .03 cents or so I get using my Kroger card at Turkey Hill turns out to be cheaper than .40 cents off at Get-Go anyway as Kroger grocery prices are MUCH lower and Turkey Hill Stations are priced more competitively on diesel and have more convenient locations.
