Albertons, Safeway and other grocery stores are offering 10X Gas Rewards Points on select gift card purchases. It includes Best Buy gift cards, which can be exchanged for Disney gift cards at Best Buy. What’s even better, Albertsons/Safeway takes mobile payment. This means you can also use your Chase Freedom and get 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards (mobile pay is a current category bonus).
Y’all, I drive a sub-compact… I don’t usually get excited about fuel points. They don’t help much when your fill up is 7 gallons. But, 10X fuel points on gift card purchases is almost unheard of; this is a great opportunity, even if you don’t drive a suburban.
Which Grocery Stores & Gas Stations
Here’s info from the official Gas Rewards page about participating stores & gas stations: “Gas Rewards may be redeemed only at participating Chevron and Texaco stations and at Safeway, Vons, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Albertsons and Carrs/Safeway branded fuel stations (collectively, “Albertsons Companies Banner stores”).”
You can also download the related grocery store app to view your fuel points and find participating gas stations.
How Do Fuel Points Work?
Every 100 fuel points get you 10 cents off the price of gas (per gallon) on up to 25 gallons at a single fill up. You can use a maximum of 1,000 fuel points at a single fill up, which would save you $1 off per gallon.
Fuel points expire at the end of the month following the one when they were earned. In this case, they will expire at the end of April, so make sure you use them.

Let’s say you bought a $100 Best Buy gift card at a participating grocery store. You’d earn 1,000 fuel points, enough to save $1 per gallon at your next fill up. Let’s assumed your average fill up is 15 gallons. Your savings on gas alone is $15.
If you use your Chase Freedom and check out with Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Samsung Pay, you’ll earn another 500 Chase Ultimate Rewards. These points are worth up to two cents each if you use a Chase Ultimate Rewards Strategy. With that value in mind, you’re getting another $10 in points.
In total, you’ve saved $15 in gas and earned $10 in travel points on your $100 purchase.
