Cash In On Fuel Rewards Programs
Most of the major gas companies have fuel rewards programs. Compare and pick one or two that will save you the most cash. Grocery stores like Safeway also offer gas rewards to their customers.
Pay Cash, Not Credit At The Pump
Most of us use our credit cards or mobile pay for most things we purchase. However, you can save 5 – 10 cents per gallon at the pump at many gas stations which offer discounts for cash purchases. Over time the savings will add up.
Use A Credit Card To Earn Cash Back
Many credit card companies cash back deals on gas purchases. Cards differ, but you can generally earn 2% – 5% cash back for buying gas. See Next Advisor’s list of the best cash back cards here:
