Do you know that when you shop at Kroger and you scan your loyalty card you earn points towards a discount for every gallon of gas you buy at the Kroger gas station? You can also redeem $0.10 per gallon discounts at Shell stations too, if you are not near a Kroger gas station.
Make sure you scan your Kroger Plus card every time you shop!
Each state has a slightly different program, but the premise is just about the same.
For Michigan, here are the details:
The Kroger fuel program allows you to receive savings of up to $1 per gallon on fuel purchases at Kroger and $0.10 per gallon at participating Shell locations. You may redeem 100 points at Shell for a 10¢ per gallon savings. And you may redeem up to 1,000 points in a single fill-up at Kroger for up to $1 off per gallon. For each increment of 100 points redeemed at Kroger, 10¢ off per gallon will be awarded.
• 100 points = 10¢ off per gallon of fuel for 1 fill-up at Shell.
• 100 points = 10¢ off per gallon of fuel for 1 fill-up at Kroger.
• 200 points = 20¢ off per gallon of fuel for 1 fill-up at Kroger.
• 1,000 points = $1 off per gallon of fuel for 1 fill-up at Kroger.
How can you earn fuel points?
There are three ways to earn points in Kroger stores:
1. Spending on Groceries: $1 in Groceries = 1 Point
2. Non-federally funded Prescriptions: 1 Prescription = 50 Points
3. Double Gift Card Points (normal exclusions apply) for example, $50 in Gift Cards = 100 Points **sometimes there are promotions where you can get quadruple points for gift cards – be on the lookout for signs in your Kroger store and online.
Do Gift Card purchases count toward fuel points?
Yes. Gift Card purchases count toward your points with the exception of Kroger Gift Cards, Green Dot cards, MoneyPaks and 1-2-3 REWARDS® Visa prepaid Debit Card and ReCharge Card™.
Is there a limit of how many fuel points I can earn?
No, there is not a limit on the number of points you can earn.
Is there a limit of how many fuel points a Customer can redeem at once?
There is a limit of 100 points that can be redeemed in a single fuel fill-up at Shell. However, up to 1,000 points can be redeemed for up to $1 off per gallon at Kroger Fuel Centers. Fuel savings are limited to 35 gallons.
How can I keep track of my Kroger fuel points?
Everty time you check out your current points balance is at the bottom of your Kroger receipt. You can also check your points balance on the Kroger website by registering your Kroger Loyalty card number online (select “Create an account” in the upper right hand corner of this page). Once you have registered your card online, select “My Points” to view your current points balance.
Can I choose not to use my discount at the fuel pump?
Yes. If you do not want to use your savings at the fuel pump, do not insert your Kroger Plus Card when purchasing fuel at Shell or select “NO” when prompted at Kroger and your fuel points will remain on your Plus Card for future use. If doing this at Kroger the 3¢ everyday discount, that is exclusive to Kroger Fuel Centers will still be awarded.
How long do I have to use my fuel points?
Points remaining after a fill-up are available to use through the end of the following month in which they were earned, providing you have at least 100 remaining fuel points. When filling up, you’ll always be offered the biggest discount available, based on each month’s fuel point totals available in your account. For example, if you have 200 unredeemed fuel points from January and 300 fuel points in February, the 30¢ per gallon discount from February will be offered on your next fill-up. The 20¢ per gallon discount from January will be available through the end of February.
