Shop at Vons and Save on Gas

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I have been scouring ads looking for deals. Although my brother-in-law usually hosts Thanksgiving at their home, this year, we may just have our moment. As much as I would love to tackle the whole meal, I'm thinking of purchasing a pre-packaged Thanksgiving meal complete with turkey, sides, and a pie. With a dissertation to complete and defend, I think everyone will be forgiving.

Recently, more and more grocers have teamed up with gas stations to offer savings to customers. This is a fantastic partnership since shoppers can save money on gas just by buying groceries. For families who prepare their Thanksgiving meal, or any other meal, from scratch, imagine the savings at the pump?! This is the time of year when more food will be purchased and consumed than any other. Whether you are buying for your family or to donate to a food pantry or homeless shelters, it's nice to know that you're getting something back in return as well.

A little about the Vons Gas Reward

The Vons Gas Reward is a free program. Customers using their Club Card can earn points to use at Vons gas stations and at participating Chevron and Texaco stations. Shoppers can earn an unlimited amount of points per month. However, rewards expire at the end of the following month in which they were earned. Every $1 spent on groceries, gift cards, and pharmacy items qualify for reward points.

Connect with Vons via Facebook and Twitter.
