So many readers chimed in to share stores that offer a gasoline discount, which is how I saved $.80 off per gallon, that I wanted to re-post the information for everyone.
The gas programs vary, but basically the more you shop at a store, the bigger the gas discount. At my local Stop & Shop, I earn 1 point for every dollar I spend, with weekly bonuses that range from 200-400 points. For every 100 points I accumulate, I get $.10 off per gallon. The points last 30 days so my balance is constantly revolving.
