I am a budgeter through and through. I keep a spreadsheet going that I update regularly to track our family spending and move “funds” around to account for unexpected expenses, events, holidays etc. And when I find a way to save money on the things we regularly spend on, it makes me very happy. Especially when I get to move that boring money into something more fun!
So when I found out about the new Gas Rewards Program with Chevron, where I already shop and spend money, I was very pumped (ha! get it?).
I was even more thrilled when I realized how easy it was and how many gas stations are a part of the program. I love saving money but when I can save money without even thinking about it, well that’s just the best.
In our family, gas expenses can eat up a large portion of our budget. My husband has a pretty good commute for work and a truck that is not the most gas-mileage friendly. We also have to feed a family of 4 with two girls under 5 that eat constantly! That combination makes this program perfect for us.
To start saving is really easy. Existing Tom Thumb reward card members can redeem points using their Rewards Card or phone number. New users can enroll in the Gas Rewards program today by downloading the Tom Thumb app or the Albertson’s app (which you should, saves you money at the grocery store), both available for iOS™ and Android® devices. Shoppers can also enroll online at TomThumb.com or Albertsons.com/rewards.
Once you’re enrolled, just sit back and watch the savings roll in as you shop (make sure to give your rewards info when checking out). You earn 1 point for every $1 spent on participating items. Points are redeemable at the pump at Tom Thumb, Albertsons, and participating Chevron and Texaco gas stations so there is always a pump close to you.
You can save up to $1 a gallon at Tom Thumb and Albertsons gas stations and up to 20 cents at participating Chevron and Texaco Stations for up to 25 gallons of gas. For me that adds up to around a $16 savings in one fill up! And then the fun starts, I begin to put that $16 into a new column in my spreadsheet to start saving for a special outing with the girls or an additional date night with the husband. Happy Mom and Wife right here!
If you fill up with gas (check!) and buy groceries (check!) then you should be using this Gas Rewards Program. Get started today and download the app.
Available on the App Store and Google Play.
