I am a member of the Collective Bias Social Fabric community. I have been compensated to share my experience with you by Collective Bias and their client, Mastercard.
Saving money on everyday purchases is something I talk about a lot because being prudent over our finances is part of being a Proverbs 31 woman.
Finding ways to make our income go farther is one of the ways we’ve been able to pay off all our consumer debt.
We’ve found more money to attack our debt by taking advantage of reward programs like the MasterCard Fuel Rewards Network. This program has allowed us to earn discounts on fuel.
We earn fuel rewards when we dine out, shop online and buy groceries. MasterCard is just one of the sponsors on the network so we even earn rewards on purchases made at Lowes among other stores.
It’s so easy to sign up and start earning rewards and so far I’ve been able to reduce the cost of filling my gas tank by $0.03 a gallon.
We are really focused on paying off our mortgage and every penny we can save helps.
Paying off our mortgage and not carrying debt is important to us because if what it allows us to do.
Not having debt means we can sponsor more children who don’t have the same luxuries as my children.
It feels great knowing that our savings adds up and can be used to make a big impact in someone’s life.
Each time we receive a letter from our sponsored child it reinforces why we go through the effort to find ways to save money.
And saving money through the FRN is easy. Let me show you.
How I Redeem My Fuel Rewards
1. When I get to pump I made a mental note of the current price and press the button to begin checkout.
2. This is the part where members of the FRN can start the process to receive savings on their fuel purchase.
3. I then entered my Bi-Lo grocery card number. If you have an FRN card, you can enter the number or swipe your card at this point.
If you do everything correctly, at this point you can see how much you’ll save on fuel.
4. I paid using my Mastercard because I earn more rewards for using it.
It was very easy to link it to my FRN account and I highly recommend it if you use your MasterCard regularly for purchases.
5. Next, I can see the price per gallon has been adjusted to reflect my savings.
To learn more about how I save money on fuel take a look at my MasterCard Fuel Rewards Google+ album.
While we won’t become wealthy by earning fuel rewards we will get a few steps closer to becoming debt free. We set a goal to pay off my mortgage by my 40th birthday so we have been making big and small budget tweaks here and there.
If you haven’t already figured out a way to save on fuel I invite you to check out the Fuel Rewards Network to see if a gas station or grocery store near you participates.
