[GasBuddy] Saving Money to Buy More Crypto! - Part 1

By carlkidcrypto | Carlkid Crypto | 20 Nov 2022


Intro

Like many people today, we all want to... save some $$$! In an attempt to save money, I discovered a nifty app that helps me save at the pump. This wonderful app is called GasBuddy. It works both on Android and IOS devices. I started using the app in August of 2021. To this day I have saved $63.02 in total. It may not seem like much, but IMHO it all adds up. If we do some quick math it comes out to be about:

$63.02/14 (total months using Gasbuddy) ~= $4.35 per month

$4.35 per month / 4 (average fill-ups a month) ~= $1.09 saved on each fill-up

Total Money Saved Using Gasbuddy


What is GasBuddy?

GasBuddy is an application that searches the internet for gas prices. It also gathers price data via manual inputs from customers at the pump. When you launch the app you can search for the cheapest gas price in your region. On top of that, I opted into using the Gasbuddy gas card. It saves me extra while activating offers at select gas stations. I should add that the GasBuddy card is NOT A CREDIT card. Rather, it links to your bank account to withdraw funds like a regular debit card. The money that is saved gets deducted from the final sale price before it is withdrawn from your bank account.

How to Use GasBuddy?

 Saving money at the pump is a straightforward process.

  • First, open the app and search for the best offer in your area
  • Second, when you arrive at the desired gas station, activate the offer
  • Three, pay with your GasBuddy card
  • Four, type in your GasBuddy Driver ID (pin)
  • Five, hit `1` to skip the odometer reading prompt or type in your current odometer reading
  • Six, select your desired fuel type
  • Seven, pump your fuel
  • Eight, wait for a few days for the transaction to finalize. Typically this is 2-3 business days
  • Nine, enjoy the savings as they add up. :) Then you can use those savings to buy more crypto!

From the GasBuddy website itself -

You can use your Pay with GasBuddy card at 95% of the fuel stations nationwide - some small, local, retailers may not accept the Pay with GasBuddy card with the exception of the following brands: Exxon Mobil, BJs, Costco, Sam's Club, H-E-B, Select Walmart Stations, Select Arco Stations.

Summary

Gasbuddy is an app I have been using for over a year now. In that year, I saved about $4.35 a month. It is worth mentioning that your mileage may vary when using the app. In other words, you (the reader) may drive more than me. Which leads to more gas usage. More gas usage leads to using the app more. Which means more savings for you (the reader). Lastly, more savings means more $$$ to invest/spend on crypto!
