Have you heard of Fuel Rewards Network? With the Fuel Rewards Network, as we purchase groceries, go out to dinner to eat and use our MasterCard, we will save money on gas! As someone who spends almost every minute of the day thinking about how I can save money and help other people save money, this is a no brainer.

View my Google+ page to see my story in photos!

Because I shop at Winn Dixie, every time I use my Winn Dixie card that I linked to my Fuel Rewards Network, I will earn fuelperks (money off of gas purchased at Shell) when I purchased specially marked items. And, I just learned that when I link my MasterCard to my Fuel Rewards Network account and use my MasterCard at Winn Dixie, I will earn 3 cents off of every gallon of gas when I spend $100!

It was extremely easy to link my MasterCard to my Fuel Rewards Network account. I simply had to type in my MasterCard number so that when I go grocery shopping and use my MasterCard, the info will upload to my Fuel Rewards account.

We are constantly looking for ways to save money. We are in the midst of two international adoptions and it seems like every week we have a new expense related to our adoptions. Saving every penny we can is very important to us. But along with the saving, sometimes we find that we are not splurging on eating out now. And while I’m glad that I save money by cooking pretty much all of our meals at home, I decided that with all of the money I end up saving on gas because of using my MasterCard and Winn Dixie card, my hubby and I will splurge and go out to dinner.

I went to Winn Dixie armed with my Winn Dixie grocery list that I printed from www.addictedtosaving.com and coupons that I had cut out. I was planning on taking advantage of some of Winn Dixie’s sales and then also crossing items off of hubby’s wish list. Hubby is getting ready to travel to Uganda where he and the Man Up Mission Team will work with orphans, widows and men. Hubby has a list of things he needs to bring on the trip – some of the items are practical, others are not. So when I went Winn Dixie shopping, I knew that I would end up spending more money than on my typical grocery shopping trips.

Hubby needed to bring pain relievers so we took advantage of the Goody’s Extra Strength Headache Formula sale. We used a $1.00 off coupon on the Goody’s and earned $0.05 in fuelperks just for purchasing them!

Hubby also wanted to go to Africa with lots of candy to eat and give to the other team members. So, we purchased six (yes six) large bags of Peanut M&Ms.

Going through the checkout lane, I didn’t have to do anything special to take advantage of the Fuel Rewards. I gave my Winn Dixie card which is connect to my Fuel Rewards Network account. This insured that I received all of the sale prices and that I also would earn fuelperks on the specially marked deals. Next I handed my pile of coupons.  I then paid with my MasterCard. This earned me $0.03 off a gallon because we spend over $100.00.

When all was said and done, we earned $0.85 in fuelperks while shopping at Winn Dixie and using our MasterCard. Since our car takes 15 gallons of gas, this will save us $12.75 when we get gas at Shell! I decided that each month, I would add up the savings and hubby and I would treat ourselves to a dinner out! If we save $12.75 twice a month, that is $25.50 that we can apply towards a dinner out! Or, if we save up two months worth of savings, we can spend $50.00 on a night out! That should get us a great dinner out!
