GasBuddy Launches Marketplace for Earning Free Gasoline

|

New “Savings” feature within the popular GasBuddy app enables drivers to eliminate one of the largest household budget items without even trying

The average American household spends more than $2,000 on gasoline a year. We want to bring that number down to zero, or close to it. For nearly two decades, we’ve been transforming the way millions of consumers shop for gasoline from revealing real-time prices, to offering discounts on every gallon purchased. Today, we are launching a marketplace where consumers can earn gasoline credit when shopping at participating retailers through the new “Savings” tab in the GasBuddy app.

“Nobody likes paying for gas and now you don’t have to,” said Sarah McCrary, CEO of GasBuddy. “Gas is one the largest expenses for American families and we have developed multiple ways for consumers to get free gas. The Savings tab is another example of how we’re creating tools to empower our users.”

In the “Savings” tab located on the home screen of the GasBuddy app, users can access a list of participating merchants. Users can then tap through and shop online with these retailers per usual and automatically earn free gas credit to their GasBuddy account that can be redeemed at gas stations nationwide.

The program launched in beta in October with 11 brands including Audible, Dick’s Sporting Goods, GetAround, Houzz, Lyft, Macy’s, MillerCoors, ParkWhiz, Peasy, Petco, and Wayfair.

This feature is just the latest example of how our platform is evolving to provide opportunities for consumers to easily earn GasBack™, a rebates program that rewards consumers with free gasoline when they engage with GasBuddy. GasBack™ is redeemed through the Pay with GasBuddy card; in addition to free gas, U.S. drivers receive an instant 5 cents off on every gallon of gas they will ever pump. Pay with GasBuddy works at thousands of stations nationwide and can be used at the pump like any other form of payment. The program has 450,000 members and counting.
