If you’re someone who frequents the same gas station because of either price or convenience, signing up for a free loyalty program can save you a ton of money!
However, a recent study from GasBuddy.com found that some loyalty programs are better than others.
Top gas station loyalty programs
GasBuddy says its findings are based on responses from nearly 11,000 users of its app. These are avid drivers who are often the most selective when it comes to filling up.
Here are the best loyalty programs, according to GasBuddy users:
Speedway Speedy Rewards
Favored by 28% of respondents, Speedway’s rewards program beat the national big brands. Members earn 20 points per dollar on in-store purchases and 10 points per gallon on fuel purchases. Points can be redeemed for free stuff using Speedway’s mobile app. Featured items include food, beverages, fuel discounts and gift cards.
Shell Fuel Rewards
Among the major national brands, Shell takes the top spot. With its program, members always save at least three cents a gallon at participating locations. They’re also rewarded when they shop at select retailers, restaurants, grocery stores and more. Rewards are redeemed by swiping the Fuel Rewards card at the pump.
BP Driver Rewards
BP’s fuel savings program placed second among the nationwide chains. Members earn 10 cents off per gallon for every $100 spent on BP fuel. On its website, BP says savings can add up to $600 a year! By linking your BP Driver Rewards account to a credit card that you use at the pump, you’ll earn rewards automatically.
ExxonMobil Speedpass+ & Plenti
Exxon and Mobil participate in the Plenti rewards program, which lets you earn points at one place and use them at Plenti partners. One point is awarded for every gallon of fuel purchased and two points for every dollar in eligible non-fuel purchases. Members simply enter their phone number or swipe a card at the pump.
