    Thanks for the suggestions, everyone! I didn't know that gas cards were a redeemable reward on swagbucks. I knew that did, but never knew about SB. I'm going to pay closer attention to SB codes now.

    Thomas' is having a Mother's Day promotion offering daily prizes - I just won a free product (coupon printed up to $5.00 value).

    Good luck!

    halfandhalf07 - we shop at Lowes Foods for at least some of our groceries every week and I use their gas rewards program like Observant does. The Bonus Gas Rewards on Sanderson Chicken Breast are great this week!

    When Kroger does the 2X and 4X gas rewards for buying gift cards, that is s good time to stock up on gift cards for holidays and birthdays and for places you shop anyway and then earn the extra gas discounts.

    You can also cash in you Swagbucks (if you do Swagbucks) for gas gift cards for various gas stations.

    We use the Lowes Foods/Just Save program with Wilco -Hess
    Always items to get extra gas points on - we have gotten as much as 60 cents off per gallon ( filled the pickup that time )

    Half, I have a BP card since I ONLY get gas at the Bp station. Typically end up with a 5 cent per gallon discount on every second to third visit. (depending on how many gallons you buy at a time)

    Does anyone recommend any fuel rewards programs? I know about Kroger's. I saw Shell's program and just noticed that BP has one, but haven't read into either yet. Has anyone utilized them yet and have any comments?

    Clinton: I've only ever used SavingStar payouts for gift cards, but they typically e-mail within a day or two to let me know that payout is ready.

    All: not sure if this code is shareable or not, but it's a good one if it works for you. I received this code in an e-mail from Kellogg's Family Rewards and it was for 500 points: 0YPZ-BMNW-MMN3-0NH6.

    Clinton28328- I just transferred the same, and it took 1 day. But, I think it can vary.
