I love earning rewards when I purchase gift cards because it is like I am being paid to shop and what girl would not love that? My local Kroger has a huge selection of gift cards, if I am looking for movie tickets, a date night dinner or cards to use like cash such as Visa and MasterCard gift cards. We like to purchase gift cards for items we would normally purchase throughout the week because it helps us keep our budget in check. Kroger gift cards for next weeks grocery shopping to help me stay within in budget is great, plus I earn extra fuel points. Have a date night with dinner and a movie? Purchase gift cards for the movie theaters and restaurant of your choice and earn points to save on fuel to get you there.
Plus when you use your favorite rewards credit card to purchase, you can earn points, miles or a percentage back on your purchase. Some credit cards even offer increased rewards for purchases made at grocery stores. For example, the Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express offers 3% cash back on groceries, and the Blue Cash Preferred® Card offers a whopping 6% cash back! Capital One QuicksilverOne®, AMEX EveryDay® and Citi® Hilton HHonors credit cards also offer increased rewards for grocery purchases.
Whether we like to admit it or not the holidays are right around the corner, I know I am not ready either. Thanks to Kroger and their 4x fuel points offer we can go ahead and purchase those gift cards now and get some shopping out of the way before summer is even over. Gift cards make gifting more personalized when you pair an iTunes gift card with new headphones, or how about a Xbox gift card with a new game or a Regail Entertainment gift card paired with a Brinker Retaurants gift card for a date night gift for your favorite couple? Here in Middle Tenneesee schools are starting this week and gift cards make a great teachers gift or if you are taking a last minute vacation, give a gift card to that neighbor that checked your mail and looked after the place.
The 4x fuel points offer is only for a limited time, it ends on 8/9 and here is how the math works out.
$6 in fuel rewards on a 15 gallon tank ($.40 x 15) + $6 back if you earn 6% cash back on credit card grocery purchases = $12 in savings on a $100 gift card!
Check out a store near you for a full list of participating gift cards and do some research on your credit card rewards – Some may have limits on the rewards you can earn at grocery, but most importantly act now before this offer gets away and be sure to enter below to win a $100 Amazon gift card!
