Here’s a link to Kroger’s digital coupons. This offer should show up immediately. But, you can sort them on the left using the category “Gift Cards”, which will help you quickly find this coupon.
If you’re unfamiliar with how fuel points work, here’s a helpful video.
This coupon is being offered at most Kroger-owned grocery stores. Here’s a list of grocery stores that are likely to be offering this coupon. If you don’t have a Kroger in your area, check one of these.
Maximize This Offer
You’ll earn four fuel points for every dollar you spend. If you buy $250 in Disney gift cards, you’ll earn 1,000 fuel points. You can spend 1,000 fuel points to save exactly $1 off per gallon at a single fill up. The cap on how many gallons you can fill up and save on fuel points is 35 gallons. So, one important strategy for saving is to fill up as many gallons as you can (up to 35 gallons). If you maxed it out, you’d save $35. Having spent $250 on the gift cards, that would be a 14% savings.
Another important strategy is to use a credit card which earns bonus points at grocery stores. For instance, the Chase Freedom is currently giving 5X Ultimate Rewards when you use a mobile payment option. Kroger doesn’t take Apple or Android Pay systems. They just struck a deal to use Chase Pay in 2018, but it doesn’t seem like it’s been rolled out yet. Samsung Pay is probably the best option because it works almost anywhere.
