Boo! I don’t know about you, but between my husband’s work commute, my son’s school and various activities, and running errands we spend way too much on gas already!! I have found a few ways to make my gas station trips less painful.

Stop & Shop + Shell

Stop & ShopshellFirst, is the Stop & Shop Gas Points program. I am at Stop & Shop pretty regularly, but never paid much attention to this program.

This past summer we were filling up at a full-service Shell station and the attendant asked if we had a Stop & Shop card. I handed ours over and BAM we saved $0.50/per gallon on that fill-up saving us $9!!! Wow, I had never even thought about it and then I was hooked on learning more about this program :-)

I save up my points and can fill-up at my local Shell station for less than $3/gallon. Might not seem like much, but if you are getting those points anyway, might as well use them!

So how does it work? The basic idea is that every $1 you spend at Stop & Shop earns you 1 gas point. You need to save up 100 gas points to save $0.10 a gallon on gas. Hmm, sounds like you have to spend a lot to get a lot of points, right?? Wrong!!!

Every week in the sales flyer there is a special bonus section where you purchase certain items and you instantly earn 300,400,500 bonus points right away! That can be $0.50 or more per gallon!!
