I’ve noticed where I am that the Upside app is featuring expensive stations and there is cheaper gas without their savings. Am I doing it wrong?
Average here in the NW corner of SC is $3.99 for regular, although some of the Walmart gas stations are selling regular for $3.93, and a different independent station was selling it yesterday for $3.95.
So the station around here that participates in GetUpside was offering a 5 cent discount on the $3.99 price. But Walmart was selling it for 6 cents less that the 3.99 of the participating GetUpside station. So I either use GetUpside and get a 5 cent/gallon payback later on, or use the Walmart gas and get my 6 cent/gallon discount vs the 3.99 station now. It's a no-brainer for me....so I use Walmart gas.
Thanks, tstewart3, I'll check it out!@tstewart3 wrote:
If its a Murphy Oil attached to a Walmart get the app. Earn points with every purchase and get 10 cents a gallon off when you get to 100 points.
Yes, it is great to have options! Now I have both GetUpside and the Murphy app. My issue with GetUpside is that for me, getting up to $15 in savings takes a LONG time, but I'll still use it if the "cents off" is greater than what the price per gallon is at other stations, such as Walmart's Marathon stations, which is my other app. So, I'll take advantage of both!@succeedin2 wrote:
It’s always great to have options I made a purchase Saturday and it’s already posted to my Upside account a day is not long for me I work from home and only do shopping 1-2 days a week and I’m at $15 I can transfer to a gift card from over 40 places, PayPal or my bank ???? I’m glad you found something to diversify your savings
Apparently some local shoppers cancelled their Dash-In shops because I was just able to collect 3 in March and April quite near me and/or near other scheduled shops that have good fees. So, reimbursed both a very good lunch, $8 in gas and the price of 2 muffins ( to freeze for breakfasts) at each Dash-In shop and I will get a lot of fuel for half price or less. Oh, and at one of those I will use the 20 cents per gallon earned on my Giant foods rewards program, honored at all Shell stations (which include all local Dash-In locations).
