Fuel Points Program Extended through 9/1/13

I rarely shop anywhere but my neighborhood Ralphs when it comes to buying groceries. Ironically, though I've shopped at this supermarket for over a decade and I'm a long-time Ralphs Club Card holder, I never really understood how the Ralphs Fuel Points program works. So, I learned all about it and I'm going to explain it to you -- so we can both take advantage of another great way to stretch our family budgets.

Summer really is the perfect time to take note of this on-going program, since many will be taking summer roadtrips and gasoline is so expensive right now. Growing up a Baby Boomer, I know I have countless fond recollections of family vacations on the open road with my Mom, Dad and siblings. Now with a kids of my own, there's nothing like meandering on the backroads of America for creating memories that will last a lifetime. It's refreshing to know there still are a few ways to save on the fuel to make these fun trips possible!

Raphs shoppers can save as much as 20 cents per gallon at the pump by redeeming 200 Fuel Points at any Ralphs Fuel Center and at participating Shell stations. You earn these points everytime you shop at Ralphs and with every $1 spent on qualifying items one fuel point is earned.This Fuel Points program is an ongoing opportunity to save for frugal shoppers.

However, right now through September 1, 2013, Ralphs is offering a digital coupon that will double your Fuel Points so for every $1 spent you actually will get two fuel points added to your tally. It's that simple.
