Speedway Tip of the Day

If you're like me, you like to get a little reward now and then from the places where you regularly make purchases. One thing we all have to buy but wish we didn't is GAS. So, why not get a few "Speedy Rewards" for your fuel up? That's right, stop by Speedway on your way home from work and inquire about the "Speedy Rewards Card." You'll earn fuel-up points toward a free fuel-up and other great parting gifts. And if you're someone who likes a fountain drink on a regular basis, you get every 7th coffee or fountain drink free. It just doesn't get any better than that! Also, I think if you spend over $3,000 you get a free meal at Applebee's or something.

What I would like to know is how to redeem them. I have had the card for a long time, but you have to jump through 137 hoops to actually get any of nonautomatic rewards (like said fountain drink or 2 cents off occasionally). I'm not saying it isn't worth it, but I have yet to really understand how you get free gas or whatever else.

Kroger cards are nice - for every $100 you spend in a given month, you get 10 cents off per gallon on your next fill-up.

It's more of a psychological benefit, though, as that really only saves you $1.50 or so...

No one will probably ever read this comment (except for Peter who I happen to know is bored at work today, so he should thank me for the distraction), but I had to chime in and thank Andy for pointing out the Kroger deal as a mere psychological benefit. I have managed to avoid the trap of switching my grocery shopping from Wal-Mart to Kroger simply to cash in on the gas benefit. I save more than a few dollars by buying my groceries from Wal-Mart than I would from Kroger. Don't be suckered in folks!

ps - I have nothing against Kroger. Please don't sue me a la Oprah and the beef people.
