GasBuddy Conjures “APRIL FUELS DAY”


In conference rooms across the nation, marketing executives are putting the final touches to April Fools’ campaigns, where thousands of dollars are spent producing fake products to trick the unexpected. Not here at GasBuddy. We’re dedicating the money to give back to you in the form of free gas — we call it GasBack™ — on “April Fuels Day.”

On April 2, the day immediately after the day when many people have been made a fool (fell for that YouTube video again huh?), our April Fuels Day will make you feel like an absolute winner.

“April Fools’ Day is stressful. Being tricked is not pleasant. It’s almost like that feeling when you buy gas only to turn the corner to see it for a lower price. The worst!” said Allison Mac, director of marketing and communications at GasBuddy. “GasBuddy is about delighting people with serious savings, so what better way than to provide guaranteed deals to millions of Americans, after a day of being pranked.”

Not Joking Around

GasBuddy’s first-of-its-kind fuel savings program Pay with GasBuddy is free to enroll and already gives drivers a discount on virtually every gallon of gas they will ever pump. Since the launch in Sept 2017, the program has put more than $6M of free gas back in the pockets of Americans. On April 2, the offers get even better:

  • Sign up for Pay with GasBuddy and receive $5 GasBack™. That’s more than 40 cents per gallon off your fill-up if you have a 12-gallon tank.
  • Already one of the 500,000 people enrolled? Fill-up on April Fuels Day with Pay with GasBuddy and save 6 cents per gallon vs the usual 5 cents.
  • Watch out for an email to land in the inbox with even more opportunities to earn GasBack™ by simply shopping with our partners.

All because we’re “never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down.”
