What are Deal Alerts?
Deal Alerts give you more free gas! This includes greater savings and GasBack credits in your Pay with GasBuddy account.
Deal Alerts can be found within the GasBuddy app, in the Find Gas section. Just look for the purple and red banner and click into the station details for more information.
You will need to activate your preferred deal in order to take advantage. You will then have a four-hour countdown to head to that specific station and make your purchase!
How does the deal work with the Pay with GasBuddy Card?
Deal Alert discounts are inclusive of your Pay with GasBuddy discount, the activated offer includes the discount you receive for using the card plus an additional discount from the station.
You will need to activate the offer, proceed to that specific station and make your purchase with your Pay with GasBuddy card. The applicable discount will be applied to the purchase prior to being withdrawn from your linked bank account.
You will receive a transaction receipt from GasBuddy and be able to review the discount received for that purchase.
How does the deal work without the Pay with GasBuddy Card?
Once the deal is activated you will need to proceed to that specific station, within the four-hour window and make the purchase with an accepted card. You will then need to upload a photo of your pump receipt in the GasBuddy app.
Your savings will be rewarded to your account in the form of GasBack. You will then sign up for the Pay with GasBuddy card to redeem your Free Gas!
For information about how GasBack works see our GasBack section here.
How to upload a photo of the receipt
To upload a photo of your receipt please return to the station details page and click the upload receipt button or I didn't use my card. This will then prompt you to take a photo and answer a few questions about your receipt.
Alternatively, you would have received an inbox message in your GasBuddy inbox, stating that you have activated an offer! There is a link to upload the receipt here as well. Please note there is a time limit for uploading your receipt.
Deals are personalized for each individual and will often vary between stations and users. What determines the offer you get is a combination of the gas stations current business needs (how much business they have, if they want more business, what the margins currently are etc) and your relationship with that gas station.
As well, deals are inclusive of your pay card discount. If one person is a paid member and one is not, this will contribute to a difference in the discount amount.
Don't see the GasBack in your account
After your receipt has been uploaded it can take up to 36 hours for the GasBack to be awarded to your account.
Some factors that may alter or decline the discount include the following:
- If combined with an additional discount/ loyalty program, other than the Pay with GasBuddy card, the discount is reduced by 3.5 cents per gallon
- Fuel Grade purchased will affect the discount received
- If the purchase was not made within the four-hour window the offer will be void
- If the purchase was made with cash the offer will be void
If it has been longer than 36 hours and the GasBack has not been awarded please contact our customer support by submitting a ticket here.
