    HyVee fuel saver card

    Just want to know what is the cheapest someone here has paid for gas using the fuel saver card. Saturday I filled up- gas price was $3.39 and had $.75 on the card so I ended up paying $2.64/gal and saved about $10 total. I was pretty pumped..... Guess it's the little things in life for me anymore...

    The sad thing is that they have people thrilled when they pay "only" $2.64 per gallon.

    Re: HyVee fuel saver card

    I figure my savings shopping at fareway/target outweighs the savings on gas

    Re: HyVee fuel saver card

    Ive gotten below 3 once which was nice. You have to do a lot of quick math to determine if its worth buying one of the fuel saver options though, sometimes its actually a good deal, other times its definitely not.

    First example i think of, lately theyve been running 10 brats for 10 with a $.10 savings. Even if you use all 20 gallons with that .10, you save $2. But they were running 10 for 7 and 10 for 8 most of the summer, so youre not really getting much of a deal.

    Depending on what you're buying certain items are cheaper in different places.

    A $.05 per gallon on 8 packs of $6.99 Gatorade doesn't do me diddly when I can buy it at Target for $4.99.

    I wouldn't use Hy-Vee or Casey's gas if it was free. So there.

    Re: HyVee fuel saver card

    I figure 12-15 cents off the item per cent that it gives you on the Gas Card (with my car it's closer to 12 gallons when I need a fill-up and the van is about 15 gallons). Using that math to reduce the price of the item is how I decide if it's worth it or not.

    For example if they have a loaf of bakery bread for $2.00 and it gives you 5 cents on the Fuel Saver, the actual cost to me of the bread is $1.25-1.40 after I take off the 12-15 cents x 5



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    I got a free 24 oz lime-a-rita and $2 off a 12 pack of Mountain Dew that was on sale for $4 for buying a 24 pack of bud light. I also got 3 free 8 oz red bulls because they rang up wrong. Great shopping experience.

    Considering the other items, you'd have been better off buying the Mtn Dew straight up, then drinking your urine the rest of the evening.

    Re: HyVee fuel saver card

    I only buy items that earn Fuel Saver if they are items that I normally purchase and only use the card to fill vehicles that will take 20 gallons. Biggest savings was $30 off

    Re: HyVee fuel saver card

    I wish all these stores did it how the grocery store back home in Ohio does it. It's called Giant Eagle. But anywho, for every $50 you spend, you get $0.10 off gas. No matter what you buy. Gift cards you get $0.20 and they have them for everything. Buying Best Buy gift cards before a large purchase was not uncommon. But also the flip side if it. For every 10 gallons of gas you buy, you get 1% off groceries.

    It's an awesome program.


    My teams: (as of 6/15/14)
    Cleveland Browns: 4-12 - .250
    Cleveland Indians: 34-35 - .493
    Cleveland Cavs: 33-49 - .402
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 3-9 - .250
    Iowa State Cyclones (BB): 28-8 - .778
