Gas Buddy Discount Card

We occasionally use the Gas Buddy card but wouldn’t call the 3-5 cents discount substantial. If you use diesel the TSD Open Road card/app is a much better discount. If not, Gas Buddy is better than nothing for gasoline.

I have been using the TSD card and online fuel price search, to include gas buddy, to get the best price. 

My favorite part about the TSD card is I can used it at the pumps and get a full fill without it kicking off at a preset $ limit.  

One thing about the TSD card is that while the savings from the advertised price is large, it is often not cheapest in the area.  I know of 3 stations in our primary travel area that routinely beat the TSD best price by ~$0.25/gallon.  Yes these are still truck lanes which is all I use now having saddle tanks on the HDT.  Last time I fueled, just over a month ago the best TSD in my area was $2.86/gal, I paid $2.61/gal at the local station.  I did use my TSD card which charged me a total of $1.65 for the use of the card.  Some of these cheaper places I have found using gas buddy or similar websites. 

 

One the flip side, a couple of months ago we went to AZ.  I did not have the time, effort or "want to" to find best price so I just went with best price TSD showed.

I guess I need to pay more attention but I don't think I have ever seen them advertise 25-40 cent off. I have gotten 10 cents off in one of their deals that you have a limited time to use.  

I use the Gas Buddy card for the car since the 4 or 5 cents a gallon off does add up over time.

You already shop at these brands, so why not earn free gas when you do? GasBack is free money for gas earned from everyday purchases. Earning GasBack is easy and it's automatically applied at the pump at gas stations nationwide.

It sounds like you use their system with purchases of other products at the listed stores in order to get those discounts.

I get 5%(around 15 cents) now with my Sams Club card.

Swharton, is that 5% cash back at non-Sam's pumps or a discount on fuel at Sam's?  Is the 5% credited to your credit card bill or given in store credit at Sam's?

If it is 5% cash back from any pump I will start using that card.  If it is just on Sam's fuel or in-store credit there are too few Sam's clubs to rely upon it when traveling.

For my fleet of 5 gas vehicles, we use Amex gold card, which is set for 3x points on all gas purchased and 2x  on everything else. Points are transferable into many different programs. Have earned over 2 million points since I started back in early 1990’s…  have taken multiple free trips all over the world.

 

TSD is a Diesel option that we use when traveling the Interstates for the convenience  factor, mostly they are TA truck stops that are easy on/off, have restaurants, stores, showers, etc. that make travel days less stressful and with an opportunity to have substantial discounts .

When in a local area and un hitched, can use other options to find fuel at stations could not otherwise fit into. And with a 65 gallon tank on the F450 my options have options too!
