While I can post so many deals on toys, household gadgets, food etc this time of year, one of the hardest things to save on is fuel. It often feels we are pretty much stuck with whatever price is displayed at the gas pump. But one of the ways to save on fuel is to utilize gas rewards programs, such as the one that Jewel-Osco offers.
When you are out shopping for groceries and grabbing all their hot sales/prices at Jewel, don’t forget to fuel up after at the participating Shell pumps by your local area Jewel-Osco. Yes, Shell and Jewel-Osco have teamed up to bring you extra savings on fuel in the Chicago area and Northwest Indiana! Check out their gas station locator to find a participating one near you. You can read all about how the gas rewards programs works at this link but let me break it out for you a little bit in this post, too:
*For every $1 you spend on groceries, you’ll earn 1 point.
*For every $1 you spend on qualifying gift cards, you’ll earn 2 points.
*For every $1 you spend on qualifying pharmacy items, you’ll earn 1 point.
Now when your qualifying spending adds up to $100, you’ll earn 100 points which is equal to $.10 off a gallon. Or you could hold out until your qualifying spending reaches $200 and get $.20 off per gallon. The max you can use is $.20 off per gallon.
You can register for FREE for this program so it won’t hurt to sign-up if you have a Jewel-Osco near you. You’ll use the phone number you register with at the pump to use your rewards that you have earned. If you already have a MyMixx account, there’s no need to register as you’ll simply use your phone number attached to your MyMixx account at the pump.
What’s funny is I have been using my MyMixx account at the register and didn’t even realize I was earning these rewards. Check out what I have in my account waiting for me to use:
You better believe I’ll be fueling up at the Shell by the Jewel I shop at next time I’m out. Lol! If you are a MyMixx user, make sure you log-in and see what you have waiting for you, too!
Now as you can see, I do have some rewards that are expiring this month. Gas Rewards earned during each month may be used only through the end of the following calendar month (for example, Gas Rewards earned in January expire at the end of February, etc.). So don’t forget to use up the rewards that you have earned! Gas Rewards savings are limited to 20 gallons of fuel per purchase, per vehicle.
I sure hope that you’ll register for this great program so that you can save money on fuel while you are out saving money on your groceries!
