Remember my road trip?
Well, here’s a fun fact. I was contacted by a PR rep for Safeway, who asked if I wanted to try out Safeway Fuel Rewards, only two weeks before we took off.
Sure, why not?
They sent me a gift card, and I was on my way. They also sent a cute toy truck, which my favorite six-year-old friend thought was kind of awesome. He opened the doors, and the hood.
That was fun!
It’s funny. I have had a Safeway card forever, but I hadn’t used it for gas. In fact, I don’t think I’d gotten much gas at Safeway until I had a gift card in my hot little hands.
We found a Safeway just off the freeway on the way up. It was kind of funny to seek out Safeway for gas, but it was easier to find once it was in my head.
We went to Canada, so we really didn’t want to get gas there. How do you guys do it? Gas is twice as expensive in Canada than it is in Washington! Holy moly. It was important to me that we spent zero dollars on gas while in Canada.
After driving around Vancouver Island, then Vancouver itself, then idling through the border made for a very thirsty car once we got back in to the safe zone of American gas prices. I knew we didn’t have enough money left on the gift card for a full tank of gas. I wondered how this was going to work.
Evidently, I didn’t have to worry.
The gas thing (whoa there, pumping my own gas is hard!) said, “hey, you have x dollars left on the gift card. Do you want x dollars worth of gas?”
Yes, please. Thanks, Safeway!
Also. Using your Safeway card can save you money (up to ten cents a gallon) if you use it both at the store and every time you pump gas.
It’ll save you money, even if you don’t get a gift card!
Note: This post was #FueledbySafeway, and they gave me a gift card. However, the opinions here are all mine.
