GasBuddy has recently announced more ways to save on gas through its new Card Linked Offers program. Gas prices have hiked up by 50% in the last year and with the overall costs of inflation, gas rewards can go a long way for a bit of relief on North American wallets.
GasBuddy Announces More Gas Savings
With the new Card Linked Offers from GasBuddy, users can automatically get free gas credit by shopping and dining out at local businesses. That is in-store purchases at thousands of local retailers. The GasBuddy Card Linked Offers further improves the in-app GasBack marketplace launched in 2019. The Card Linked Offers includes retailers like Walmart, Home Depot, Instacart, and more.
“GasBuddy has a focused mission to help consumers save money on gasoline,” said Mark Coffey, senior vice president, and general manager for GasBuddy. “Our Pay with GasBuddy program continues to attract users and gain traction with the simple promise of guaranteed savings on every fill-up, recently reaching over $1 billion in fuel transactions. Adding Card Linked Offers is an example of our ongoing goal to provide users with more ways and more places to save.”
How To Earn Free Gas?
For participants to get the full benefit of the program, they must link directly to a credit card or debit card of their choice. By doing this, not only do they get access to the thousands of merchants on the GasBuddy GasBack Network, but they also get to activate offers directly linked to their linked cards.
Once enrollment is done through the GasBuddy app, users can use their linked (enrolled) card in-stores to receive GasBuddy GasBack credit, which is redeemable for free gas. GasBuddy GasBack credits can be used at most gas stations in the United States through the Pay With GasBuddy program.
Participants in the program can use the app to locate a list of local offers in the “Nearby” section of the Savings tab. From there, the user must select the offer they would like to activate and claim it with their linked credit card.
GasBuddy is a leading platform in North America, on a mission to provide ways to save money on gas. It’s accepted in 95% of North American gas stations and has delivered more than $3 billion in growing savings to its users by providing real-time gas price information. GasBuddy provides cash back rewards through its partnerships with Mastercard and other third-party providers.
Other Ways to Save on Gas
In addition to the GasBuddy app, there are other ways to further savings at the gas pump. Gas station branded credit cards typically earn savings on gas when you visit the branded gas station. The only setback is typically the gas savings only applies when you fill-up the tank at specific gas stations. For example, the Shell Fuel Rewards Mastercard saves up to 10 cents per gallon when used at Shell gas stations.
Other ways to save on gas include credit cards with cash back rewards for gas categories. For instance, the Chase Freedom Unlimited® credit card earns 5% cash back on gas station purchases on up to $6,000 spent in the first year. Check our picks of the Best Gas Rewards Credit Cards of 2022 for more.
