Turn Kroger gift card deal into cheap gasoline

I've written about this deal before, but it's too good not to mention again.

Starting today and running through Sept. 8, Kroger is offering quadruple fuel rewards, offering you a quicker way to score a cheap tank of gasoline or two -- up to $2 off per gallon at Kroger gas stations.

Here's how it works:

Using your Kroger loyalty card, purchase gift cards at Kroger for other retailers. A $100 gift card to Home Depot or Target or Macy's, for instance, will give you 400 fuel reward points, which amounts to a 40-cent discount on gasoline.

(That's double the normal discount.)

Head over HERE for tips and tricks on how to work this gasoline deal to your advantage and read how I scored gasoline for just $1.60 per gallon.
