Tips to Save at the Pump

1. Research the lowest price in your area

Before heading out on the road, research the prices of gas in your area to make sure you are getting the best deal when you need to fill up. Apps like Gas Buddy and Gas Guru are helpful in letting you compare local gas prices.

2. Improve your fuel efficiency

There are a few ways you can easily improve your fuel efficiency and get the most out of each fill-up. Keep up to date on your car's routine maintenance, make sure your tires are properly inflated, and remove any extra cargo or weight you are carrying. When driving, try to gradually accelerate, avoid hard braking, and slow down on the highway.

3. Change your driving habits

Carpool with a friend and split the travel costs if you are going to the same place. Plan ahead to get all your errands done in one trip out instead of multiple little trips. Turn off your car to reduce idling as much as possible.

4. Enroll in loyalty/rewards programs

Different gas stations offer different loyalty programs that could help you save on the cost per gallon. Do your research into these fuel rewards programs and enroll if you determine they could help you save at the pump.

5. Use your Scorecard Rewards on your Connected VISA Credit Card

You could redeem your ScoreCard Rewards points for up to $0.50 off per gallon (up to 20 gallons) at participating stations! Learn more here.
