Tis' the season for holiday shopping for amazing gifts. With both of the kids in school now, there are many more gifts to buy this year from teachers to friends to even neighbors who have become friends. That means every change to save or get something back is definitely a plus Did you know that when you buy gift cards at your local Kroger grocery store BEFORE shopping, dining or hitting the town can save you up to 12%?
For a limited time through December 8, 2015 you can double dip on savings with the purchase of select gift cards.
Check it out:
- Earn Fuel Points: Earn 4x Fuel Points on gift cards at Kroger
- Earn Credit Card Rewards: By using your favorite rewards credit card to purchase, you can earn points, miles or a percentage back on your purchase. Some credit cards even offer increased rewards for purchases made at grocery. For example, the Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express offers 3% cash back on groceries, and the Blue Cash Preferred® Card offers a whopping 6% cash back! Capital One QuicksilverOne®, AMEX EveryDay® and Citi® Hilton HHonors credit cards also offer increased rewards for grocery purchases.
Here’s the math:
$6 in fuel rewards on a 15 gallon tank ($.40 x 15) +
$6 back if you earn 6% cash back on credit card grocery purchases =
$12 in savings on a $100 gift card!
I am all about earning extra points or cash back when using my favorite rewards credit card. I do need to get on the mileage wagon to earn more towards vacations! Why not get rewarded for buying the gifts you were already planning on purchasing? Buy the gift cards before going shopping on Black Friday for even more savings. For teachers you can pair gift cards such as iTunes or Regal Entertainment with another gift your child selects. For friends why not pair a restaurant gift card with a "pass" for free babysitting. The possibilities are endless.
It's always nice to pass along the joy and get into the holiday spirit of giving. Having a bit of savings along the way is a win-win. Plus it's one stop shopping while grocery shopping! It doesn't get easier than that. Make sure to head to your local Kroger store asap to take advantage of this great offer.
