Thanksgiving day is tomorrow! For most of us this means a beautiful golden brown turkey in the middle of a table surrounded by family and friends. This time of year not only promises eating, drinking, and time with family, but also more trips to the grocery store. Accommodating family and friends from near and far this holiday season can benefit you and your wallet more than you think. Did you know that UsingMiles can help you manage the points you earn towards so you can use them to save money at the pump?
UsingMiles allows you to track 18 grocery loyalty programs. This is especially important when you consider how often you grocery shop and how often you fill up at the pump. Both of these are done very regularly throughout the holidays. Unfortunately, these points expire on almost a weekly basis, so not tracking them is risky because who would want to lose all those points that result in discounted gas? UsingMiles even send you expiration alerts when your fuel points are about to expire.
The Kroger Corporation is one of the larger grocery chains with stores around the country that fall under different names depending on where you live in. Even though the chain names may vary, the Kroger Rewards program is universal among all chains. Stores within the Kroger Corporation include, Kroger, City Market, King Soopers, and many more. Click here to see the entire list.
Not only does the Kroger rewards program allow you to save on gasoline, it also enables you to make your grocery list, get local specials, weekly coupons and more. Obviously, the big highlight of this program is the fuel program. It’s simple: for every dollar you spend you get a point, and these points add up to save you money on gasoline. As a member, you will also receive notifications on other ways to rack up points, such as getting a prescription filled from the in-store pharmacy – this earns you 50 points!
Let us not forget about Safeway and Stop and Shop! These grocery stores also offer great incentives for doing your shopping in their stores. Members of this program receive one point per every dollar spent on groceries and pharmaceuticals. Additionally, members can earn up to 4x the points when they make gift card purchases. All of these trips to the store really add up, benefiting your wallet and car (for gas that is!) 100 points earns you 10 cents off each gallon, 200 points earns you 20 cents off each gallon, 500 points earns you 50 cents off each gallon, and 2000 points earns you 2 dollars off each gallon!
Stop and Shop has partnered with Shell to offer customers points toward fuel. Much like the other programs, this program lets you earn one point per dollar spent. Then for every 100 points you earn, you receive 10 cents off at a participating Shell station. Weekly specials, cash back for A+ schools, and more savings all apply to members of this program as well.
With the holiday season starting tomorrow (ahhh the land of football and turkey), there is no better time than now to start tracking your grocery points! See how much you can save on gas and starting tracking your grocery points today at UsingMiles.com!
