Martin's: Buy $100 Visa Gift Card and earn $0.30/gallon


Buy $100 in Visa Gift Cards at Martin's this week and earn $0.30/gallon! There may also be an activation fee (usually around $4.95).

Since I took out $100 for my grocery budget this week, I will buy the gift card, earn my $0.30/gallon and then use the gift card for my grocery purchases!

PLUS there is also the spend $50 earn $0.30/gallon fuel perks coupon in this weeks ad. What my friend does is if she knows that she is going to spend $100 or more, she will split her trip to two $50 transactions and use (2) of the fuelperks coupons!

So if you plan to spend a $100 and do the above, you will earn a total $0.70/gallon! ($0.30 for the gift card, $0.60 for doing two transactions and using (2) fuelperks coupons and $0.10 for spending $100)

Check to see if AT&T Owes you Money for Unauthorized Charges


If you have AT&T for your cell phone service, then they may owe you money!

Listen up, AT&T customers: You may be in for a refund. AT&T has agreed to pay $105 million for “cramming” unauthorized charges on the monthly bills of its wireless customers, federal and state regulators announced Wednesday.
The charges — typically $9.99 per month — came from third-party services for things like trivia, horoscopes and love tips. AT&T is accused of keeping at least 35 percent of the fees, as well as obscuring the charges on bills and preventing customers from securing full refunds.
You can check on whether you were affected and apply for a refund on the FTC’s website.
I had to call AT&T twice last year because of unauthorized charges. You have until March 1, 2015 to file a claim.
