Sheetz Success!!!

On a recent trip to the beach, I had the opportunity to fill up at Sheetz and use the discounts on the My Sheetz Rewards Card. Both fill ups occurred at the Mebane Sheetz that had a posted price of 2.45. The discount provided by the email signup discounted the gas price to 1.95, and the second discount on the second fill up brought the price down to 2.35!

Sheetz Deal

So, I am not sure if you have a Sheetz Rewards Card, but I would definitely recommend obtaining one, especially if you ever purchase food or gas from a Sheetz. Points can be earned on gas, food purchases, and coffee purchases. Once you reach a certain level of points, you will receive a discount on gas. This is Sheetz current point earning table.

You BuyYou SpendYour Rewards
Made-To-Order food, coffee, bakery or fountain drinks$1.0035 pts
Bottled beverages, snacks, candy, ice cream and most grocery items$1.0010 pts
Gift Cards from popular retailers and restaurants$1.0010 pts
Gas$1.005 pts

Now you might be wondering how good are the rewards one can earn. Well, if you purchase gas, you can earn up to 30 cents off per gallon! This makes the cost of a 2.49 (9/10) per gallon down to 2.19 (9/10) per gallon! Below is their current reward brackets:

1750 points = 10 cents off per gallon
3500 points = 20 cents off per gallon
5250 points = 30 cents off per gallon

Now for the deal...

Currently, Sheetz is running a promotion for their card members to register online at www.mysheetzcard.com once providing your email and verifying it, they will add 8750 points instantly, which somehow gives a discount of 50 cents per gallon.

Want a FREE Meal???

Chick-fil-a is giving away an entirely free meal! All you have to do is dress up like a cow. If you, like me, do not have a cow costume hanging around in your closet, you can print one out HERE

"Couponing" Websites

Aimee and I began "couponing" about two months ago. It all began on a trip to Harris Teeter on "Triples Week" (a week when Harris Teeter will triple manufacturers coupons up to .99). We had several coupons that we wanted to use in order to get some great deals. While in the store, we noticed several families with a binder full of coupons. Inside of these binders, the coupons were neatly placed in trading card pouches and separated by section. After several minutes of hesitation, I asked one of the ladies with the binder full of coupons about her methods. After 20 minutes of enlightening information and resources, we were hooked. Below are the websites we use to save money!
