Can you believe August is here? Besides finding ways to keep cool, this time of year starts the thoughts of back to school. More specifically, clothes and supply shopping. If you are looking for ways to save, here are a few ideas.
Take advantage of Kroger’s current promotion.
When you buy select gift cards, you can earn 4x more in fuel points. Save up to 12%! For example, if you plan to shop at Staples, buy your gift card beforehand at Kroger. The savings will be available when you fuel up. Make sure to put in your Kroger store number (to earn the points at checkout and later redeem them at the gas station). Duplicate this scenario with any retailer that is participating in this offer to maximize savings.
Additional ways to maximize savings
Purchase the gift cards with a credit card that offers a rewards program
Check the retailer’s flyers to shop during sale weeks
Use coupons at the retailer at checkout
This is one idea of ways to utilize this promotion. However, the ideas are limitless when you look at the retailers who are participating. Buy holiday, birthday and other gifts early to earn 4x fuel points. Check with Kroger for exclusions and limitations on offer. Kroger family stores include Ralphs grocery stores. This is a limited time offer, the promotion ends August 9, 2016.
