Many of you are familiar with the Safeway gas rewards program, where you earn money off your gas when you shop at Safeway (for every $100 spent you get $.10 off per gallon, and can accumulate those points and use up to $1 off per gallon)! Up until recently, you were only able to use your gas rewards at Safeway gas station.
You can now use your Safeway Gas Reward Points at participating Chevron and Texaco locations, making the program even more convenient!
The process works the same as it does at Safeway stations. I recently used some of my points at Chevron.
When I went to fill up:
- I had the option to enter my card or phone number to use my Safeway rewards.
- I entered my phone number, and it automatically applied my discount to the current gas price at that station.
- I printed my receipt to confirm, and that is it above – showing the $.10 off discount from Safeway.
Now my only problem is that my rewards are smaller, only because I use them more often.
I love the Safeway gas program. Often they offer extra incentives in the Safeway Just 4 U program to earn extra gas rewards, and it really is one of the best ways my family has found to save on gas prices. For instance, we recently went on a road trip. My Just 4 U account had a coupon that allowed me to earn 4x the gas rewards on gift card purchase. I figured out what I would be spending for my vacation, and purchased some gift cards and earned about $4 per gallon that way (can only use $1 off per gallon – but this allowed us to fill up 4x on our trip with a $1 off each gallon discount. That was a nice savings!). By being able to use the Safeway gas rewards at Chevron and Texaco, we now are able to utilize our gas rewards during more fill ups (we do not have to strategically plan to get into a Safeway gas station before we run out of gas any longer!).
It looks like the 4x gas rewards for gift card purchases promo is currently going on again. It may be a great way to save, if you know where you will be doing your school shopping at (buy gift cards to those locations and earn extra fuel points!).
