fuel savings tips for 2022 - M Loves M @marmar

Happy Sunday everyone! We are getting ready to plan a big California road trip in the next month and I have been meaning to chat more with you about one of my favorite money hacks that helps make it possible. When Matthew and I decided to move to Idaho we knew we’d be planning lots of road trips to see family, and also explore our new state. What we weren’t counting on, though, was the crazy high cost of gas prices. Can you believe that when we moved to Idaho two years ago, the gas prices were under $2/gallon. Incredible right?! Well obviously that’s far from the case now and while I know some cities are really feeling that burden, I’m determined not to let the high prices at the tank affect our ability to do one of the things we love most: travel!

Walmart+ has been the ultimate membership for our family in many ways over the past few years, from last-minute free delivery of groceries ($35 order min. Restrictions apply.) – so helpful with a newborn!, to free shipping with no order minimum (Excludes most Marketplace items, location & freight surcharges), and now to gas station savings all over the country. Did you know you can get up to 10 cents off every gallon at over 12,000 Exxon and Mobil stations nationwide, in addition to Walmart, Murphy & Sam’s Club?? (Fuel discount varies by location & station. subject to change)

We’ve recently been taking advantage of their fuel savings, which makes this membership even more of a no-brainer. It’s saved so much for us!

I’ve gotten some questions about Walmart+ and how it’s different from other memberships so I thought I’d put this post together to hopefully help you out and make the decision even easier.

How is Walmart+ different from other memberships?

  • I feel like while other memberships we have (or have had) are constantly changing their prices, Walmart’s has always been the same. It’s just $12.95/month or $98/year which gives you so many benefits.
  • Other memberships sneak in markups on delivery, but Walmart+’s membership gives you the same everyday low prices that you would normally get in a Walmart store delivered for free with no markups.
  • Fuel savings! This is a big one! You save 10 cents on every gallon at Exxon and Mobil stations. No additional purchases necessary! Cue the clapping hands! (Fuel discount varies by location & station. subject to change)
  • You get benefits that you’d actually use and savings that are pretty impossible to find anywhere else.

We’ve calculated it before and we can easily save over $1000 a year with the different benefits!

Also, when I was on their site the other day I found so many cute home items I had to share with you. They do such a great job with their home decor section. And love the free shipping!
