Fuel Savings Card: How It Works and Why It's Worth It

First of all, they're not gift cards. You can't use a fuel savings card to pay. Instead, you get a fuel discount in the form of cents-per-litre savings, which means that you save an amount of cents for every litre that you pay for. Depending on the card you choose, you will have a maximum of litres you can save on.

How to Use a Fuel Savings Card

  1. Purchase a fuel savings card
  2. Fill up at the gas station
  3. Pay with gift card or other payment method
  4. Swipe your Fuel Savings Card at the same time, to receive your savings

Combine Fuel Savings Cards With Gift Cards to Raise Even More

Combine your fuel savings card with a gift card to make the best of it. Get a discount on your litres with the fuel savings card, pay the balance with a gift card, and raise more donations for your group at the same time.

Here's an example. If you purchase a $100 gas gift card offering 2% in donations, your group will receive $2. If you also purchase a $50 fuel savings card that offers 20% in donations your group will receive an extra $10 and you get your $50 back in the form of savings. Basically, you pay $50 and get it back, but your group raises $12 instead of only $2 in this example.

Once you wrap your head around how Fuel Savings Cards work, and how often you should order one, you can raise a lot more money for your group each time you fuel up.
