GasBack is GasBuddy’s rewards program that allows you to earn rewards in the form of gas from the purchases you make. It’s like “cash back,” only the currency is gas for your tank!
How are we able to do this? GasBuddy works with leading brands that provide incentives to promote their products and services. GasBuddy is committed to helping you save money on gas, so we pass those incentives along to you in the form of GasBack Rewards.
GasBack can be earned in many ways:
- Shop top brands online in the GasBack Marketplace via the Savings tab in the GasBuddy app. Every purchase you make earns you a percentage of the purchase price in GasBack Rewards.
- Shop or dine in-person/in-store from partner restaurants and retailers after you link a credit or debit card to your profile in the GasBuddy app. Once you activate a “Nearby” offer, simply use that linked card to pay for your purchases or meal.
- Make everyday purchases with the GasBuddy Mastercard® Credit Card (in accordance with the GasBack Rewards Program Terms).
- For in-store offers, please make sure to activate the offer first to receive your GasBack Rewards.
- For any GasBack offers you receive by email, please make sure that the email address matches the one tied to your GasBuddy account.
- As with any of our online offers, please make sure to click on the offer link from any GasBuddy email, app, or website so that we can issue your GasBack Rewards to you.
Please note the Pay with GasBuddy® fuel card cannot be used to make everyday purchases—it only works on gas purchased at the pump. A standard form of payment must be used, such as the GasBuddy Mastercard® Credit Card, for any online offers.
You have options on how to redeem your GasBack Rewards:
The simplest and fastest way to redeem your GasBack Rewards is with a GasBuddy payment card. GasBuddy offers two payment options: The Pay with GasBuddy fuel card and the GasBuddy™ Mastercard® Credit Card.
Pay with GasBuddy Fuel Card
If your GasBuddy account shows you have an available GasBack Rewards balance, the amount will be automatically redeemed when you make a fuel purchase at the pump using the card.
For example, if you have $6.30 available GasBack, that amount will be deducted from your next gas purchase when you use your Pay with GasBuddy fuel card.
You won’t see the discount on the station’s receipt—look for it after the transaction clears your bank account on your GasBuddy email receipt and in the app.
The Pay with GasBuddy fuel card provides an everyday discount of 2¢/gal at the pump (or more when you activate a station’s Deal Alert in the app.), in addition to allowing you to redeem any available GasBack Rewards from your account. This card works at most gas stations nationwide, excluding Exxon, Mobil, Sam’s Club, Costco, and stations outside of Wex’s network. Only available GasBack can be used. Any pending GasBack will not be applied to a purchase.
To sign up for the Pay with GasBuddy fuel card, you need to complete enrollment online or in the app, link it to your checking account, set your Driver ID (a PIN number you’ll enter at the pump), and you’re good to go! You can learn more about the Pay with GasBuddy fuel card and sign up for free through the GasBuddy app or on our website here.
GasBuddy Mastercard® Credit Card
Awarded GasBack is redeemed in the form of a statement credit on fuel purchases at the pump made with your GasBuddy Mastercard® Credit Card. Only available GasBack can be used (any pending GasBack will not be applied to a purchase). This card has no annual fee1 and offers valuable new cardholder bonuses. In addition, the card offers our highest GasBack earn rate. To learn more about the card, its benefits, and to apply, visit here.
Redeeming GasBack Rewards without a GasBuddy Payment Card
If you do not have a GasBuddy payment card, you can still redeem your GasBack Rewards. As soon as your GasBack balance reaches $5 or more, you are eligible to “cash out” or transfer your GasBack for a gift card from one of our participating brands. Visit this link to learn more about transferring your GasBack to a gift card.
Please note that if you have a GasBuddy payment card, the gift card option is not available to you.
Your GasBack Rewards expire 12 months from the date it posts to your GasBack Account. Watch your inbox and the app for reminders from us about your GasBack Rewards expiration date.
GasBack Account Balance
You can view your GasBack account balance in the GasBuddy app at the top left corner in the Savings tab. When you select View Transactions, you’ll see an itemized list of your GasBack Rewards earned, pending, and any fuel purchases made with the Pay with GasBuddy fuel card.
Alternatively, you can view your GasBack account balance on the website here.
Pending GasBack Rewards will be visible in your transaction history within 10 business days of your purchase.
GasBack offers may have a “pending period” before the GasBack can be awarded. This pending period is necessary because GasBuddy must wait until the merchant confirms your purchase. For retailers, this often includes a “return window,” where users can receive a refund from the merchant for any number of reasons. The pending period varies from merchant to merchant.
If you still don't see the GasBack Rewards in your transaction history, you may be logged in with a different email address than the one associated with your GasBuddy account. Please check the email you received to confirm.
If it has been longer than the stated pending period and your GasBack is still pending please contact Customer Support here.
Other ways to redeem GasBack
At this time any earned GasBack can only be redeemed with the Pay with GasBuddy card but we are always working to improve the service.
If you want more information about the Pay with GasBuddy program please see our help center here.
Didn't receive GasBack
Pending GasBack can take up to 10 business days (Mon-Fri) to appear in your transaction history.
Please note: Typically, if we don't see a transaction on our end, it could be due to one of the following reasons:
- The provided link to access the retailer's website was not clicked.
- The email address associated with your GasBuddy account does not match the email used for the promotion.
- There was too long of a delay from the time the offer link was clicked to purchasing (this is called a cookie window, and it varies by brand but is usually an additional 1-7 day delay).
- The link was clicked but the checkout or sign-up process was completed on a different device or window.
- The link was clicked, but a different merchant affiliate link was clicked after ours and the transaction was completed through that link.
If it’s been more than 72 hours and you still haven’t received a “Pending GasBack” notification, contact Customer Support here.
