Last month I posted about how I wasn’t sure what we should do this summer for our family vacation; we were planning on visiting my parents in Viriginia as usual but wanted to take a side trip as well. Many of you had helpful comments and after some help from my bargain-hunting mom (I come by it honestly) I am excited to say that we are beach bound!! We’re heading to Kill Devil Hills in the Outer Banks of North Carolina next month. WOOHOO! I can’t wait to take these babies to the beach!!
So in just a couple of weeks, we will be gassing up the Toyota Sienna and heading first to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, and then to the beaches of North Carolina. We are SO excited! But, our van runs on premium gas (per my mechanic hubby), and gas isn’t exactly el cheap-o these days. Which is why before we leave for our trip, we’ll be fueling up our summer with gas from Kroger. I almost always get gas at Kroger because I can use the fuel points I earn buying groceries there to get a discount on gas. Generally you earn 1 point per $1 spent at Kroger, and you can see your points totaled up at the bottom of your receipt.
Happily, this summer Kroger has made it even easier to rack up those fuel points! Using this digital coupon that you can load to your Kroger Plus card, you can get 2x the fuel points on everything you buy on the weekend all summer long. You have until June 30th to load the digital coupon to your card, so click here and do it now!! After you have loaded it to your card, you will see it on your receipt when you shop on the weekends!
The Summer Fuel promo has already been working for me! I loaded the coupon to my card as soon as it came out, and last time I filled up I got 40 cents off a gallon!! You can redeem up to 1,000 fuel points at a time to earn up to $1 off each gallon of gas. Wow!
Tomorrow (Sunday) I’m headed out to Kroger to shop their most recent mega-event one more time (it’s the last day for it where I live) and rack up some more fuel points for my next fill-up. I’ll be earning double fuel points for buying all the things my family uses all the time that are on the mega-event: baby wipes, Capri Sun, Cheez-Its, and my favorite Gevalia coffee. WOOT WOOT! Of course I have plenty of coupons to take with me, too!
To help you get a jump start on fueling YOUR summer, Kroger was kind enough to give me a $100 Kroger gift card to give away to one lucky winner! Yeee-haaa! Wouldn’t it be fun to earn double fuel points on groceries bought with a gift card? I think so! Here’s how to enter to win:
1) Leave a comment on this post telling me how Kroger is going to fuel your summer. Do you have a road trip planned, or just lots of driving to do during the week?
2) Optional: Facebook fans of Mommin’ It Up get an extra entry. If you are a Mommin’ It Up Facebook page fan, leave us a SEPARATE comment letting us know that you are.
One winner will be drawn at random on Saturday, June 29th at 6 pm EST. Good luck and go fuel your summer with Kroger!
