Kroger :: Fueling Your Summer ~ Gift Card GIVEAWAY {CLOSED}

This giveaway is now CLOSED.  Congrats to Angela Johnson, who said she is saving money this summer by clipping coupons.  Angela, you have 24 hours to email me at: Katie(at)Cards-by-Katie(dot)com or another winner will be drawn. 
Stay tuned, there are more great giveaways coming soon!
 
It's summer time, and that means many people are heading out of town on vacation.  Not us, we had our big vacation on Spring Break, but we are still going through gas quickly on all of our fun adventures this summer.  I just bought a new van last week, so I'm feeling the pinch and looking for ways to cut corners.  In the first week we owned the Sienna I have already put 500 miles on it!  So I was pretty excited when Kroger contacted me to tell me about their "Fueling Your Summer" promotion.  They are offering a digital coupon that will double your fuel points this summer, but only if you grocery shop on the weekend, which I know that many of us already do. 

Here's all the information you need about the Fueling Your Summer promotion, don't miss out on double fuel points!

Official Fueling Your Summer Information ::

Beginning on May 20, 2013, Kroger shoppers will be able to save up to $1 per gallon at the pump by redeeming up to 1,000 Fuel Points at any Kroger Fuel Center, and at participating stations.



Every $1 spent on qualifying items at Kroger earns you 1 fuel point. To help you fuel your summer Kroger is offering a digital coupon that will double shoppers fuel points earned when shopping at Kroger on weekends, meaning every $1 spend on the weekends equals 2 fuel points.  


Here is a link with all of the details:: http://bit.ly/16XJg2x
Get your digital coupon now, there's only two weekends left in June!

 THE GIVEAWAY ::

To get you even more excited about shopping at Kroger and earning fuel points, they are giving a $100 Kroger Gift Card to one lucky reader!  If you are heading out of town this summer this gift card will go a long way to helping you pay for gas!  This gift card can be used to shop for groceries or fuel at Kroger.

One winner will be drawn on Friday, June 28th at 2pm using Random.org.  The winner will be announced here on the blog and on The Little Things facebook page.  If you leave an email address I will attempt to contact you.  The winner has 24 hours to respond or another name will be drawn.  Winner must be at least 18 years of age and live in the United States.  Best of luck!  You only need to complete the Mandatory Entry to be entered into the contest, but feel free to enter a few more times using the bonus entries.  LEAVE A SEPARATE COMMENT FOR EACH ENTRY!

By winning the $100 Kroger Card, I would be able to use the gas money saved to purchase fuel for the ski boat, allowing us to go tubing and water skiing with friends! We're headed to Michigan soon and this card would be a great ease on the budget noose!

I cut corners by searching ALL the FREE activities available for children.

Great giveaway! Thank you!! We are heading to Gatlinburg, TN for a family vacation and the Kroger gift card would be amazing for us to save on gas and goodies for the car ride down! With 4 kiddos I am always up for saving money and getting the best deal! :)

I cut corners evety summer by growing my own garden...

Krystan said...

I made it halfway to my beach vacation before my transmission blew up. We never made it and don't have money to make another attempt. A gift card would go a long way to helping us get around town for little day adventures. It would also help a lot since my two kids just keep eating more and more every week!

Krystan said...

I cut corners by getting veggies from my friend and in-law. They both have gardens and are producing more than they can eat -- free food for us!

Kathy said...

Excited that my daughter just got married! That is the biggest event of the summer for me.

Might be taking a short road trip out of town to see a few bands we love. With money being do tight, we might camp overnight at our destination, and a Kroger gift card would be perfect for picking up our food and supplies for the trip!

We cut corners (save) by packing lunches and snacks on our afternoon adventures instead of eating out. Much healthier, too! :)

I'll be traveling to Minnesota for the wedding of my college roommate in August and the $100 would be a huge help in the fuel costs for that trip!

Berea Mama said...

We are traveling to Columbus and Illinois this summer, as well as camping and picnics thrown in. The gift card could help us fill up our gas tank and pack a cooler for one of our trips!

Berea Mama said...

To cut corners this summer, we tend to only run our air conditioner at night. I just cannot sleep if I am hot!

We are cutting corners by attending free family events in the area, using coupons, selling unneeded items and re purposing items. I wanted color flowerpots this year and instead of buying new, I just bought paint and painted them. Going to do the same with the patio furniture.
