If you can figure out how to use there gas rewards then it is not bad. I still have not figured it out looked for directions on there web site and couldn't find them. There gas never comes down in price where I live it is the most expensive gas station.

You get 3 cents off just by using your Kroger card...
They claim to give you 10 cents off, but since you already get 3 cents, you actually only get 7 cents more off....
Plus most Kroger & Turkey Hill stations charge 3 - 5 cents more per gallon....
You do save, but it's only a couple pennys...
Not worth buying outdated stuff from Kroger

Dear Kroger,
Thank you for increasing the cost of your groceries to subsidize your gas stations. Fuel Points might be great for a family of four with 2 cars. For the single person or childless couples who spends $50-100 a week on groceries, it is worthless.

lol, are you serious?

3 Ways to Save on Fuel:
1. Fill 2 prescriptions or more at your local pharmacy and receive $.10 cents off your fuel purchase.*
2. Spend $50 or more on gift cards and receive $.10 cents off your fuel purchase.**
3. Spend $100 or more on groceries and receive $.10 cents off your fuel purchase.

Not only do I buy all my groceries at Krogers, I also buy gift cards for my purchases at Home Depot, Jo-Ann's, etc. I've got 50 cents a gallon off for four fill-ups in January. Their regular price gas is usually the same as others in the neighborhood. I also participate in their Communittee Awards for my church to provide emergency funds for members and neighbors in need. I am very happy doing business with Krogers.

Kroger Co why dont you open a store in Gallipolis, Ohio? Gallipolis has 1 supermarket and that is Wal Mart which most of us are sick of. The closes Kroger is in Jackson, Ohio and some of us would like to keep business in Gallipolis. It would help with the unemployment here in our town and you would be surprised on the numbers that would shop there. So if you have all this extra money, please put a Krogers in Gallipolis, Ohio.
Thank You

Gotta agree with MaryLou, Topper, and I Know...Kroger usually has the highest fuel prices in our area. "Saving" ten cents a gallon brings their price down so it's almost on an even keel with the competition. We buy groceries there and at Meijer and buy the gas wherever the cost is more reasonable.

Woo-Hoo! More 7-9 dollar an hour jobs in Ohio.

Kasich is in office for one day and we've already got 6 new job at Kroger's 1000th gas station. He's batting a thousand!

EXACTLY...... why go to krogers and spend more to get higher return on gas. Giant Eagle gives way better incentives, I am with you, we have gotten way more free fuel than I would have at Krogers.....

Krogers hires only

Krogers hires only squeaky clean people. Krogers wants your money yet they place their grocery stores in low income areas and won't give felons a second chance to enter the workforce doing anything for their company. I can't see how this practice helps the communities whose money they accept but won't give felons a second chance. Krogers I feel should help the communities they place their stores in if they want our money. You may not have a criminal record but I guarantee you know someone that does. Let Kroger know if you disagree with their hiring practices.

Because they can (and will) charge anything they want for it and there isn't a single thing we can do about it. We have the largest pool of oil in the world in northern part of the U.S. but it goes unused thanks to the wacko environmentalists (probably financed by the Arabs).
