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? :)

Have any of you heard the radio commercials for the new BP rewards program? I have been hearing the ads on KQRS, I think it is a .05 cents off per gallon program but I cannot find it on their website.

I am just wondering if it is something like the SA Rewards card or not.

JoeJoe, I have been in that SA a few times, there used to always be a older long haired guy working overnights in there and I never had problems getting him to take any coupons. He always told me he was applying for other jobs, I am not sure if he is there anymore.

On Tuesday the night lady manager said she would not take any internet coupons.
I have been going to this station for over two tears and never had a problem there before. In fact that afternoon I used the same type of coupon and it was accepted with no questions asked. Go figure.....

DI, I forgot to mention 42 and Lac Lavon, which is usually also quicker to fall - it's close enough to the Costco that they keep a tight eye on prices. Filled up there for $3.399 - 3 cent loyalty (though it DID NOT register at the pump, that seems to be SA's newest trick) - 10 cents x 2 Tuesday double = $3.169. (And apparently just in time).

COMPETITOR’S COUPONS

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

• 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

Available at 201 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.

01falcoguy - Personally, I'd just go down the street to the Kwik Trip where I would almost personally guarantee that you will not have a hassle with coupon acceptance. Yeah, they don't double them but I'd rather just know that I'll always get my 10¢/gal. off.

Bungee, as I had previously noted, I had the same problem at the same 42 and Garrett - Apple Valley SA that you did with DI's coupon pack of 10 cent coupons from Exxon-Elk River, and I know that byrock did as well.

The manager there is a real control freak and, although, TECHNICALLY, he may be right (since it is a reproduced ad, it's not the original printed ad, which he gleefully made a point of telling me), I can't believe that it's the problem he says it is. Of all the SA's in the world that will take that 10 cent coupon, I would be shocked if they are the only store that SA won't take the coupon from and sends them back to the store as rejects. Otherwise, NO CORPORATE SA would take them, since they do show rejected coupons at the register.

But, depending on price, I'll go to the one on 13 and Diffley or the one on 52 and Upper 55th -- neither of them have ever balked at DI's coupon -- and the one in Apple Valley can suffer without my business.

Philo_Gray asks "DI - do you have a link for the Elk River $.10 off that goes to late April or May?"

Not right now. It takes several hours to review and compile the info from the coupon sites (although that time is getting shorter as more of them bite the dust) so I prefer to wait until my feature coupon is about to expire (which is on next Wednesday, April 10). I've learned that the coupon site that tends to have the most gasoline coupons (Valpak) doesn't update until after the end of the month so it's not productive to start until after then.

Some of my favorite coupons are expiring so I thought I update some links

a $.10 off coupon that expires 4/30

Only $.07 for Holiday but an expiration of 6/30 (more then the $.06 coupons from others)

DI - do you have a link for the Elk River $.10 off that goes to late April or May?

I have been using the Kwik Trip/Holiday coupons I get out of the Star Tribune the first Wednesday of the month. I combine that with my SA rewards tag and I try to do one of my fill ups on Tuesdays each week when the coupons are doubled.

Even with those efforts I have still spent $606 on gas so far in 2013.

For those of you considering a new or used car purchase. Walser and Luther dealerships (they represent nearly every make of car) both offer fuel discount cards with new and most used car purchases. Walser does SA and Luther does Holiday. I am not aware if Morries does anything or not. I was out at Walser Honda last night looking at something and the sales guy was explaining to me that their discount card can be integrated with the SA rewards program card which will give you the Walser 6 cent discount plus the SA 3 cent discount and it is all on the one card that Walser gives you.

Bungee, you're right, I don't get gas as frequently as many of you do. So therefore haven't gotten the 3¢ discount as many times.

Sleepy, not sure what neighborhood you think that station is in, but it is not a "bad" neighborhood.

I didn't have these issues previous to this particular clerk being there at night. There used to be two on duty but they must be cutting back, since lately it's been just him. Previously, I'd go inside and tell the cashier that I wanted to fill up and use a coupon, and they'd let me do it without prepaying or leaving my d.l. or anything. But this guy must be new. Maybe they got chewed out for doing that, I don't know. I don't think I look like anyone who would run off. Heck, I can hardly walk sometimes, let alone run. ;) And I seriously doubt anyone who was planning on running off w/o paying would go inside and show their face, have a conversation (which would make them more memorable), etc. And then there's the fact that they can look out the window and see my license number. But this guy looks young, and probably doesn't want to jeopardize his job so feels he has to go "by the book". Their policy, like many, is to prepay at night etc.

But you do raise a good point, Sleepy. Maybe I should call during the day and ask if it is really necessary to leave a d.l. or prepay if I go inside first. Or maybe I could leave my rewards card or something. But I'm not good at calling businesses during the day, so not sure it will ever happen.

So many replies! I'm glad that I engaged the group in discussion here :)

The BBB replied to me that they cannot help in this case, so I contacted SA customer service. They apologized and will give me a refund for the difference. I don't think that we need to go through all of this to use their own policy, but the apology and refund is a good step forward.

I'm just going to keep the coupon policy printout in my car just in case, and make sure that the coupon isn't blurred/fuzzy from my printer.

My experiences during SA double coupon Tuesdays have been pretty positive. I frequent the Blaine SAs at 65 and Main and University and 109th Ave.

A couple occasions I have had 10 cents/gallon internet coupons from Click N Print Savings and Valpak not accepted, because they could not see the "source" of where the coupon came from. I was fortunate to have backup 10 centers at the time they were not accepted.

Otherwise, I have never had problems when presenting the whole page printout from Valpak or Click N Print Savings coupons, because it clearly shows the website where they came from.

I know a lot of people here like to loathe SA, but I cannot complain in saving a consistent 26 cents off per gallon on Tuesdays (10 cent coupons doubled, 3 cents for SA card, and 3 cents for SA Fuel gift card).

G O you just gotta get out of that neighborhood. Too many "issues" at that station, and that's probably the LAST place I would give up a license. NONE and NEVER. Does SA know they are doing this? I think a call to SA corp. and it would stop immediately. Do you have an SA fuel card? Why not? If you ran a SA Reward card thru the pump, I would think that would be enough to identify you for drive off purposes, and I would guess they would have lots of well working cameras if it is that tough.

Lately I've been pre-swiping Rewards card at pump and .03 is automatically removed from pump price. Fuel card discount inside when I pay. Used to do it all inside, but I like to see the pump price come down. Most of the locations I seem to hit most often (5 or 6) allow pump then pay.

G O - I've never heard of that "too many times" story before and would be willing to bet there's nothing to it. I believe you are correct in assuming this cashier just blurted out something off the top of his head.

From past posts by you, I would guess you probably drive fewer miles than most of us and therefore use less gas than most. I believe this "too many times" thing would have been mentioned long ago by someone else if there was anything to it. I usually get gas once, maybe twice, a week and have always gotten the .03/gallon My SA Rewards discount during the promotional period; the same goes for previous promotions when the discount was .05/gallon.

The only inconsistency I've noticed is sometimes the price at the pump drops if I've swiped my rewards card and other times the discount gets factored in when the cashier rings up the sale. I always check my receipt.

My experiences with using coupons at SA have been similar to Bungee's, and I, also, try to have more than one kind with me at a time. And/or I go in before filling up to show them the coupon I want to use.

But last week I had a new experience. I went in to the SA I go to a lot. It was late, approaching midnight on a Tue and I was anxious to get it paid for before double coupon day was over. The newer cashier was on, the one who won't let me fill up without surrendering my driver's license, which I refuse to do, b/c it doesn't feel safe to me. So, instead, I prepaid for 12 gallons, guessing at how much to get. I had a 10¢ coupon and the receipt reflected the $2.40 discount. But there was no indication of the 3¢ discount for using the Speedy Rewards card. When I questioned that, the first thing he said was that they don't give it every time and I must have used it too many times to get the discount that time. Huh? I've never heard or read anything like that. And the signs usually just say 3¢ disc, no mention of limited quantities, although their sign didn't have the 3¢ disc posted at all. It had the diesel price instead.

As I questioned what he was telling me, he then said that I would get the discount at the pump. And that did indeed happen. When I went out to put the gas in my tank the price on the pump was showing as 3.72, when it was really 3.75.

So I got my discount and chalked this up to the clerk not knowing what to say, and just coming out with the first thing that popped into his head, whether or not it was true.

But I want to double check whether anyone else has had an experience like this or has heard anything that might indicate the possibility of there being limited use of the 3¢ disc. Just in case.

Speculations on my part but I think Valpack covers the metro area and has more gasoline coupons than other such companies.

Amen to that Bungee. Some employees, and store managers, and regional managers try to assert their "authority" real or perceived, or otherwise. They are arguing about a slip of paper. As in the case of BP-Elk River coupon, 2"x1" If they didn't want to match the competition, they wouldn't. It brings me in to SA, never did before the coupons, and sometimes I buy other things.

MOUSEHUGS: Why do you think they hate Valpack? I too often drive many miles during day but don't need to fill as often as you, and it does really add up.
I refill an SA "FUEL PERKS" card for an add'l 3-5 cents per gallon and occasionally use one of their 25/50 cent off coupons (doubled tuesday) if I'm near empty and have earned it. Currently have about 20,000 pts avail. I use a credit card that gives me 5% cash back for gas purchases to fill the fuel perks. Get SA Rewards for that too. Wasn't 'till I found the Forum that I found all the possibilities.

Regarding coupons at SA, it's been my experience that acceptance or rejection varies from station to station, sometimes even from employee to employee.

I recently had a ten-center from DI's big coupon post for BP Forest Lake / Vadnais Heights refused at the SA on 15020 Garrett Ave & Co Rd 42 in Apple Valley. The exact same coupon handed back to me in Apple Valley was later accepted at an SA in Woodbury on 9910 Norma Ln & Hudson Rd. And no, I didn't drive all the way to Woodbury just to save the 10¢/gal. ;-)

The same scenario has played out before with other coupons at different locations. Until they achieve some consistency, I try to keep a variety of coupons from various sources with me so one of them should always be accepted at the time of sale.

We just stopped going to SA, tired of having the coupons rejected for numerous reasons, but they really hate Valpac coupons. I fill a tank of gas a day so every penny counts. The last reject from SA was that they didn't feel the station was close enough to be considered a competitor! OMY!

HOLIDAY, You are my choice! No hassles EVER at any station! They have double tuesday's as well, they will go up to a dime and double it on Tuesdays.

I would like to say that SA does not have to double coupons, but they do. I believe this great for us. I had a problem last week. I contacted their corporate headquarters with the link to the coupon and they apologized and fixed the problem. They then contacted the station to let them know the coupons are not fraudulent. Just try emailing the corporate headquarters for SA.

Herd that SA has been hammering their employees a lot if they take a bad, expired, or fake coupon. They post the Bad Coupons in the store for all the employee's to shame the one employee who made the mistake. So some of them do not want to take the coupons unless they are sure it is good. Fear from the home office, the manager, and other employees. Their trying to save their own job, at the risk of angering a customer.

If you don't get a satisfactory response from SA, you might want to also file a Consumer Complaint with the Attorney General's Office.

01falcoguy - I'd suggest that you print the entire Exxon Elk River Valpak coupon with your browser including the valpak.com URL in the header or footer, and take it to the manager and ask what the problem is.

The implication that SA is getting so many of those coupons that they deem them a "problem" at least makes me feel that my time spent on the coupon project is worthwhile.

Anyone else have problems with DI's Exxon-Elk River coupon? The manager at the SA on 42 and Garrett in Apple Valley says that they are being sent back to him rejected by SA Corporate, and that he won't take them. Meanwhile, when I went back to my car to get another (7 cent Holiday) coupon, someone else had a laser-printed Valpak coupon that he accepted.

I know some SA's that are not used as much increase their rewards discount up from .03 cents to .10 cent but they also play a game with it on double Tuesdays. I bet if that store does not get better sales they will close it down in a year or two.

Any one out their that knows more about what their policy is on this disparity?

This morning I used a .10 cent Kwik Trip coupon along with my SA rewards card to save $3.58 off the cost of a fill up. Still cost me $53.99 but it worked out to paying $3.46 per gallon instead of the posted $3.69.

stonesour025 - I frequently get gas at the SA on 42 and Garrett in Apple Valley. I do not recall ever having a problem with a coupon. I do know that they are on their third different manager within the past year.

It was good to hear that your coupon problem got resolved.

Thanks, Woe! Did you get an e-mail or did you see this elsewhere? I’m curious because I have a Speedpass and hadn’t seen anything.

For those interested, here are the details of the Speedpass Customer Appreciation promo.

If you are a speedpass user (exxon/mobil) you can sign up for the 10 cent a gallon discount again. It's good for 100 gallons within 60 days. Believe you need the online
account to do this.

Looks like SA is upping the price before double coupon Tuesday.

Sorry that I didn't reply that night. I was writing a complaint on their website when I decided to call the manager of the store. She apologized, and when I went back in later that night she refunded me the difference. I gave her a full-page printout of the 10-center, so that she could post it for reference. It was the SA on 42 and Garrett. I also got the additional 3 cents, but manually as well.

Stonesour: still shows the 3cents as available. Which SA refused in Apple Valley, and is this a corp or franchise store? I find sticking SA REWARDS card in at pump usually always lowers pump price by 3 cents, and I will not have to worry about it later.

ALSO noted that TWO for Tuesdays good at 201 locations?

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 accept 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

Available at 201 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.

Walleye asks "DI, do you have any updated coupons to pass out?"

I will shortly. I started this weekend but had problems with the ValPak site.

SA is at it again, only the Apple Valley location. I just filled up and tried to use the BP Forest Lake/Vadnais Heights 10-center that was just posted, and they said it was fraudulent. It's obviously not, and they have no basis for making false accusations. Their policy states that they accept competitor's internet printables, so it's either false advertising or fraud on their part.

Also, did they do away with the 3-cent My SA promotion? It didn't show up as well.

Here's a link to the 10-center that Philo posted. I'm downloading the new version of photoshop right now, so I can't make a 10-pak right now.

Her is a link to the Holiday coupon 7 cents. In case the system stops the link I added spaces so edit them out and you will go to it.

But the last link I gave was for 10 cents off so use that one at SA on Tuesday.
