List any gas coupons here that you know of that anybody can easily pick up and where they can be used:

I'll list 2 I use off the web:
1) 7 cents off per gallon at Shoreview Diagnostic Center available on
valpak.com (Saint Paul area)
2) 4 cents off per gallon at freedomvalu.com

Obviously besides being accepted at these stations themselves, I have found that Rainbow, Kicks 66, and PDQ also accept these. Even Holiday has been accepting them lately! Wonder if the threat of having gas buddy legal experts check into Holiday's advertised policy of accepting ALL competitors had anything to do with it? :)

sniemic thank you. I appreciate the work you've done monitoring and posting, and sharpening up the image last time so that the date was more clearly readable.

I've saved a good amount of money as a result.

I'm sure others agree!

To those asking for the 20¢/gal coupon with inside purchase, there has no new coupon posted to Valpak since October 30 (when the coupon disappeared). I continue to monitor regularly, so if/when a February coupon is posted, I'll share what I find.

sleepyhollowtoo - It would be pointless to call My-SA-Rewards, as the SA in Burnsville at 1884 East 134th St & Co Rd 11 is a franchise, not subject to SA corporate policies. I've run across other franchised SA's whose coupon policy also differs from SA Corporate. Lesson learned; I'll just know better going forward.

I used a 20¢/gallon off coupon at a Holiday station last week and they said they will only give 10¢/gallon. (Like Kwik Trip's policy, i'm guessing!) They did double it to 20¢/gallon for Tuesday's double coupon deal.

40¢/gallon would of been nicer! I used it to purchase diesel fuel, which was $3.759/gallon last week. The coupon stated it was for gasoline purchases. I didn't want to push the issue and lose the total use of any coupons!

I didn't do as well as Sleepyhollow did. I didn't see any SAs at $2.39 in the various areas I traveled in and looked at on the gas price map. There was one station 1¢/gal cheaper but for various reasons I didn't feel it was worth it. It would only have saved 12.5¢ total. I'd never been to that station before, so there was the potential for coupon hassle as well.

I had also passed a couple of stations, including a SA at 2.54/gal and many stations at $2.49.

What a bummer, Bungee.

I used the last 20¢ off with inside purchase coupon at an SA in Richfield Tue night, and received the full doubled amount. Although she insisted I pay at the pump or prepay, and I wanted to fill up, it worked out well. I used the fuel card to fill at the pump and went back in with the coupon and she gave me the $5.02 discount back in cash (for 12.565 gallons). The pump automatically took off the 6¢/gallon for using the fuel and rewards cards. It did that by resetting the price down to $2.42/gal from the posted $2.48 price. It was actually easier than the way I usually do it, and having to go back and figure all the discounts to see if it's right. Putting money on my fuel card was my inside purchase, but I don't know if she even looked at that requirement.

I, too, sure hope they bring back those 20 centers, but it is hard to feel too bad about it since not so long ago we were paying upwards of a dollar more per gallon.

I just thought of something. If Holiday still accepts expired coupons we could get some additional mileage out of it there. I just checked and sniemic's Nov. 8 link still has it. Holiday does not have the Tue coupon doubling policy, some individual stations will do it IF you ask, to meet SA's policy. But not all of them will.

Has anyone used that 20¢ one at Holiday and know if they enforce the inside purchase requirement?

Bungee: It's worth a call to SA Rewards @ 1-855-468-6972 Just to inquire and let them know. Things have been pretty quiet of late on double Tuesday with SA. I suppose they are getting more ornery as the price of gas falls, all tho, I believe they can make up their rules as they go. I haven't swung by the double Tuesday website to read current language in a while.

The SA in Burnsville at 1884 East 134th St & Co Rd 11
has a new twist (restriction) regarding coupons. They have capped the maximum redemption value at $4.00 total, no matter how many gallons or how many cents per gallon the coupon states. I used a doubled 20-center for 15 gallons so instead of the calculated discount of $6.00, I only received $4.00. The $2 loss took a big bite out of their low-for-this-area $2.439/gallon price. If I had known this ahead of time I would have gone elsewhere.

This change won't affect me so much after tomorrow, as the 20 cent coupon seems to be history and I usually don't buy more than 16 gallons during a fill.

EXCEPTION - They said this policy will not apply to coupons "purchased" with SA Rewards points which you print at their in store kiosk.

NOTE - This SA is a franchise so this change isn't something that will be happening at corporate stations (I hope).

Anyone have $0.20/gallon or more with an inside purchase coupons? Tomorrow is the last day for the one I have! I'm hopping that they updated the coupons since sniemic's last post of 10/30/14!

Here are a couple of coupons with updated expiration dates:
10¢ off/gal., 30 gal. max, expires 1/31/15
10¢ off/gal., 20 gal. max, 4-pack, expires 12/31/14
15¢ off/gal. w/ premium wash and 30¢ off/gal. w/ ultimate wash, 15 gal. max, expires 1/15/15
12¢ off/gal. on Saturday and 15¢ off/gal. on Sunday, 20 gal. max, expires 2/10/15

This information was included on DI's regular postings and is being copied as a reminder:

COMPETITOR’S COUPONS

All Kwik Trips and SAs and all corporate Holiday Stationstores accept competitor’s coupons. Other stations may also accept coupons. YMMV.

• Kwik Trip accepts coupons up to 10¢/gal. off.

• Corporate-owned Holiday Stationstores accept coupons up to 10¢/gal. off. Some Holidays may accept expired coupons.

• SA doubles the coupon value on Tuesday. SA’s coupon policy:

[quote]
Double Coupon Tuesdays
Even the competitors

Valid Jan 1, 2000 to Jan 1, 2020
Available at 190 Stations

Fuel Coupons (“Coupons”) must be original, no copied coupons will be accepted. No expired coupons will be accepted. Restrictions on the coupons will be followed, (Example: 5¢ off a gallon with a car wash purchase). Discount cards, similar to “show and save”, will not be honored as a physical coupon is required. Online coupons are accepted as long as they are legitimate coupons from a legitimate competitor, not expired, and we will honor the verbiage on the coupon. Unless otherwise specified on a legitimate competitor’s coupon, one coupon per transaction. We reserve sole discretion to determine legitimacy of a coupon and whether to honor it. Available at Participating stores.

Holiday had 10 cents off coupons in the paper today. While most are better then that Holiday is also giving a $5 gas card for $30 in I-Tune cards. I normally to do not buy their but I did need some I-Tune Cards so it was a good deal.

I hate to ask sniemic, because I appreciate your posting the 20 centers good through December, but do you possibly have an image of that which is a bit more clear? Very hard to see the expiration date and some stations are pretty picky about that.

I usually make my own but just realized that they are gone and the ones for January, as mentioned, require a car wash.

If you can... thanks. If you can't... thanks anyway.

In light of my previous comment, I have posted the 20¢ off coupon with inside purchase with 12/10/14 expiration date here. The updated coupon, which expires on 1/10/15, can be found on Valpak, but contains just 10¢ off/gal. coupons or 20¢ off/gal. with any car wash.

Here are a couple of other coupons with updated expiration dates:
- 10¢ off/gal., 50 gal. max, expires 11/30/14
- 15¢ off/gal. w/ premium wash and 30¢ off/gal. w/ ultimate wash, 15 gal. max, expires 12/15/14

Bad news everyone: the January 2015 coupon from Circle K/ExxonMobil/BP was posted to Valpak today, and the 20-cent coupon with inside purchase is gone entirely. They are replaced with 10-cent coupons and a single 20-cent with car wash.

The SA at Ewing and Lake (near Lake Calhoun) refused my $.20 off coupons tonight. She said her manager told her not to accept printed ones "like that". I said, "from the internet?". She said it had to have the top part that showed the email (sic) address.

Luckily, I'd taken it in and showed it to them before fueling; I almost didn't this time, b/c I haven't had any questions about them lately. then had to rush to another SA that was only 2¢ more, before it closed. These two station were the lowest ones in the general area that I would go. The first one was $2.87, the second was $2.89. The rest of the stations were $2.99-3.09

Fortunately, the second station accepted it, although she did refuse the first one b/c she said she couldn't read the expy date. I had another which she did accept. I think you could read the date on the first one, but since I had another I didn't want to protest to much, thankful that she accepted it at all. I carry the coupons around until I need them and it seems that the print gets a bit worn off. Maybe it has to do with having a laser printer.

Mon night I was out in the WBL/Mahtomedi area and had to get some gas before I ran out. Couldn't make it until Tue. The SA out there accepted one of the same coupons, with no question.

j-99 wonders "Are these [Holiday and Kwik Trip flyers the first Wednesday of each month] still there and the paper delivery has not put them in my paper or have they stopped."

The October 1 PiPress in Dakota County had both Kwik Trip and Circle K flyers. The latter was a bit puzzling because the closest Circle K is in Edina. I wonder if they screwed up and included Circle K, rather than Holiday?

j-99, we've been getting both Holiday and Kwik Trip flyers the first Wednesday of each month, including October. How far are you from those stores? We're within 5 miles of each. You might call the Star Tribune and ask if you are supposed to be getting them.

If it has not been mentioned, there is a relatively new SuperAmerica in Lakeville off of Interstate 35 and 210th Street (Across the Freeway from the McStop).

They are currently giving a $0.10 per gallon discount with the SA Card plus any additional coupon or SA Prepaid card discounts.

As someone mentioned a while back, this is a grand opening special. It is unclear how long they will continue the $0.10 SA Card discount.

If you follow the link to the coupon and then click the "View Print Mailer", you'll see one of the coupons on the sheet is 20 cents off w/ inside purchase. You can print it directly from this page, or right click and save/view the image.

Apologies for not seeing your comment until tonight.

When I pulled into the BP on Excelsior Blvd. and Natchez in St. Louis Park to get prices, I saw a sign in the window that said they double coupons on Tuesdays, with a 20¢/gal. maximum. I don't know what coupons they honor. If it is only their own, I don't know where they are available.

I wonder if "Terrific Tuesdays" coupon doubling is spreading?

Philo_Gray asks for the "15 cent off Sunday only coupon."

That's a coupon from Valpak that unfortunately I have not seen in a few months.

The best coupons out there appear to be these three:
- 10 cents off, 50 gal. max, expires 9/30/14
- 20 cents off w/ inside purchase, 20 gal. max, expires 11/10/14
- 15 cents off w/ premium wash, 15 gal. max; 30 cents off with ultimate wash, 15 gal. max, expires 10/15/14

AnotherOne, I'd say "you're welcome", but I think it is Spideyman that deserves the thanks. :)

I've found that it can depend a lot upon the individual cashier. Some are much pickier than others. I don't know if there is more of a crackdown now.

goldieolds, thanks for the 20 cent coupons.

BUT....

I had my local SA station deny them since they were "copies". When I explained that they were internet coupons, they would not budge.

When I asked them if they would deny all internet coupons, they said 'internet coupons need a web address on them'.

btw, I have NEVER had a problem with printed coupons at this station.

When I asked 'if there was a web address on the coupon sheet, then it would be good' they still would not give me a definitive yes.

SMH

Is SA clamping down? Or is this individual stations starting to reject coupons?

Anyone else have this problem?

Double check to make sure they double your coupons on Tuesday:

Today I went into the SA at 90th & Old Cedar Rd, it was a pre pay station and I went in to ask the clerk to turn the pump on for me. He did, and then I went out to pump my gas and when I went back in I presented my .10 cent coupon, the clerk calculated it all, took my credit card and then gave me a receipt to sign.

I noticed that although I pumped over 11 gallons I only got a $1.10 fuel coupon discount. I say to the kid: "I thought coupons were double on Tuesday", he replies "I did double it", then I pointed out that it was a .10 cent coupon and that I bought 11 gallons which should have got me $2.20 off and not $1.10.

He apologized, corrected it and gave me $1.10 cash out of the drawer.

Just goes to show that you have to carefully check your receipts.

sleepyhollowtoo asks "On a separate note, "mysarewards.com" now shows 11 stations giving a $.05 discount (including superior, WI? ) for using the rewards card. What's up with that?"

When the new SuperAmericas opened in Plymouth and Brooklyn Park within the past 12 months, the initial discount for the SA rewards card was 10c per gallon. In Plymouth, that was reduced to 5c per gallon after a few months. Interestingly, that discount is set corporately. When I asked a station manager about the 10c discount, even they did not know when it would be reduced.

DD: Just checked "mysarewards.com" and don't see any major changes to the verbiage. Obviously any station can reject anything they want. So list your problem stations so GasBuddys can avoid them.

Just an observation/my experience that I wanted to pass along:

Some SA stations have started "cracking down" on competitor's gas coupons and will only take a competitor's gas coupon if it has (at least) the logo of the station on it [just a straight 10¢/gal gas coupon, no inside purchase or car wash required]. I'm not sure what the SA corporate policy is on this, but I've had coupons rejected at a couple of different corporate franchisees recently because they didn't have a logo on it. I even showed the ValPak sheet I cut the coupon from at one SA and they still would not accept the coupon. :-(

Stone, thank you so much! A full page is great, more to share. Plus, with the October expiration, one page is good for two months.

Goldie, I keep one of the original flyers in my car with my coupons, it has the various stations on it, along with the several different coupons. I bring it in with me when I make my one trip into the station to do my purchase and pay for gas right afterward. That way I can show it to the cashier if they ask. It's happened a couple times when these coupons first started appearing, but not so much any more. Guess cashiers are getting familiar with them.

One time I forgot and skipped the inside purchase step. In the process of ringing up my gas purchase, the cashier caught it and said I didn't meet the coupon requirements. After I explained that my "inside purchase" was going to be a fuel card reload, I convinced the cashier to accept the doubled 20-center, complete the gas transaction and then do the reload afterward. They had no problem with that; not having to cancel the gas purchase, do my fuel card reload and then start over again with the gas purchase made it quicker and easier for everyone.

Spidy, thank you. That was very nice of you! I'm sure there will be others who appreciate it also.

Stone, thanks. That's good news that they eliminated that confusing requirement.

I'd appreciate one with fewer coupons, but also some places won't accept them if they can't see what station it is for. And I have had them refuse to use it when it was too small to read the expiry date. I guess I can go back and find the link and the original, if necessary. It's probably pretty far down by now.

Five or six would be plenty for me.

Has anyone used the coupons without the station name and address on it at an SA?
