Kroger.com is offering 5% off on Visa and Mastercard gift cards purchased online for denominations between $25-$100. Given the fee and the fact that these will not code as grocery, these cards won’t be a good deal for everyone. However, if you can make use of 4x fuel points (ending today – Tuesday, 3/16), then this could be a good enough deal for some pajama spend.
- Kroger.com is offering 5% off on fixed-denomination Visa and Mastercard gift cards in values between $25 and $100:
- Expires 3/22/21 (but 4x fuel points is only valid through 3/16, then 2x)
- Max of 3 of each denomination from each brand
The only denomination that makes sense here for most people is the $100 cards. Those have a $5.95 activation fee, so you’ll pay a net cost of $100.95 after 5% off on the hundred dollar card. Since these will not code as grocery, you’re probably expecting a best case scenario of 2% to 2.5% or so cash back, which means you’ll only come out a dollar or two ahead.
However, given that Kroger is offering 4x fuel points through today, you could stand to come out farther ahead if you’ll be fueling up. That $100 card would earn you 400 fuel points, which is good for $0.40 off per gallon of gas. If you’re able to fuel up with even 15 gallons, that’s a savings of $6.00, which would make the $100 cards certainly rewarding enough so as to be worthwhile.
