Gas prices are no joke these days. Thanks, Russia!

It just cost me over $25 for a quarter tank of gas — and I nearly fainted right there.

There has to be a better way, right?

Here’s How to Make Gas Cheaper At The Pump

Luckily, there IS a way to chip away at those gas prices, and make them just a bit more manageable. Even if it’s a few cents cheaper here and there, everything adds up!

Collect Grocery Store Gas Points

Grocery stores like Safeway, Kroger, Harris Teeter, and Albertsons offer fuel rewards if you shop there using a reward card.

The way it typically works is for each (usually) $100 you spend, you will get (usually) 10¢ off a trip to the gas station.

Of course, the kicker is that you have to spend money to get money. But, it’s money you would be spending anyway on groceries, right?

You also have to use their loyalty rewards cards, both to shop and at the pump.

In most cases, the cheaper gas is good for one trip to the gas station — so fill up when you are nearing empty on the gas gauge.

Join Gas Station Rewards Programs

Some gas stations (I use Sheetz around here) let you use a loyalty reward card, kind of like grocery stores use.

You scan that loyalty reward card before you stick your credit card in the machine, and it gives you a set amount off per gallon — usually a couple cents — but each little bit adds up!

Sometimes the loyalty rewards program at gas stations comes in the form of their credit card. You would have to use their credit card to fill up — but you can always pay it off at the end of the month.

Earn Gas Cards Through Online Programs

By performing simple tasks on some websites, you can earn free gas cards. It’s probably $5 here and there, but again, every little bit adds up!

Yes, they can be a bit time consuming, but could be worth it when you are pumping free gas into your vehicle.

If you pair the free gas cards with a loyalty rewards program, you will be sitting pretty, my friend.

Survey Junkie

This site lets you take surveys for market research with companies that you typically use. You get points for completing surveys, and those points can be turned into cash — which you can then turn around and use on gas.

It is important to note that this website only pays out once you hit $10 in rewards, so keep taking those surveys.

Although a bit time consuming, this is usually how I pay for part of my Christmas gifts.

You can watch videos (commercials), take surveys, and even play games which add up to money (Ca-Ching) — usually a few cents per task.

You get $5 just for signing up, and you can cash out your money for all kinds of gift cards or Amazon money.

Swagbucks allows you to “Cash Out” at $3, but most of the good gift cards are $5 and up.


To use MyPoints, you just shop like you normally would online. BUT, you need to access the store you are buying from via the portal at MyPoints.com.

You can redeem the points you earn through MyPoints for gift cards — but the selection changes everyday. If you don’t luck into a gas card one day, come back the next. You can save up your points, and spend them on something you truly need — like gas.

Gas is crazy expensive these days, but every little bit you can save and add up will mean cheaper gas at the pump!
