New Gordy's Pump Perks Card
Posted: September 20, 2013
For the past four years, I've done a majority of the grocery shopping. As a result, I've become a coupon-saver. Never before did I pay too much attention to deals on groceries, but I've found that the savings add up over time. Likewise, I've become a smart shopper when it comes to buying specific grocery items to save money on gas. I take great pride on using a gas card or turning in receipts so I can save money at the gas station.
This week, I acquired one of the new Gordy's Pump Perks gas cards. Historically, I've used my Mega card as much as the Gordy's Pump Perks receipts at the Gordy's Express stores - mostly because the Gordy's receipts don't get used before they expire or get lost or damaged. But now that I can record up to 21 days of savings on my new Pump Perks card, I would be willing to bet that I'll become a more regular user at the Gordy's Express stores.
I don't buy gas too often at Kwik Trip, Bridge Stop or Direct Stores, but I usually get other food and convenience items at those operations. In fact, I probably would get gas more often at those businesses if I knew more about how I could save on gas without having to sign up for a new credit card.
I'm sure I'm not the only Gordy's shopper who has saved a one-cent or two-cent receipt on the refrigerator only to forget about using it until after it expired. I have also left the paper receipts in my pants pocket and found remnants of it after pulling my jeans out of the washer or dryer. I have often wondered how many receipts I have lost or had damaged and lost the opportunity to save money on a 15-gallon fill-up at the pump.
FESTIVAL FOLLOW-UP: Now that Festival in the Pines has been over for a month, I wanted to be sure to thank some special people who helped with this year's annual event. First of all, I could not host the festival without all of the non-profit and service groups. I also want to thank the festival ambassadors. The ambassadors are my friends who help count money, help with hanging advertising and food menu banners and mostly keep me sane.
A special thanks to the 12 RCU volunteers who helped me in the finance trailer this year. It's always comforting to have professional money-counters help with the task of tallying the finances.
I would also like to thank the other major sponsors including: Mega Foods, Xcel Energy, Prestige Auto and U.S. Bank. I could not put on a party for the community without their generous support.
