What is GasBuddy?

Updated: May 17, 2019

GasBuddy is an app that promises to save you money at the pump. With GasBuddy, you’ll never have to pay full price for gas, again. Available for use from the site or from their app, users can utilize GasBuddy’s tools for a better commute. The GasBuddy app is available for Apple and Android.

GasBuddy’s database is powerful; boasting more than 150,000 nation-wide gas stations and convenience stores. Users can locate their next fueling location, view fuel prices in real-time and read through reviews left by fellow-users. New users can save 10 cents per gallon on your first fill-up. Save 5 cents per gallon for every fill-up after that.

Find Gas

Users can easily find the nearest fuel spot with GasBuddy’s easy-to-use search option. Users can choose to search by City, State or Province. Users can even choose to view gas stations by brand. GasBuddy is affiliated with 10 of the nation’s top gas stations – like Valero, Citgo and BP, just to name a few.

Pay with GasBuddy

At no cost, users that join can save 5 cents per gallon. If users desire additional savings or benefits, upgraded memberships are available:

Plus – At only $5/ month, users can save 20 cents per gallon, up to 40 gallons per month. After that, you can still save 5 cents per gallon.

Premium – at only $7/month, users can save 20 cents per gallon, up to 40 gallons per month. After that, you can still save 5 cents per gallon. Additional benefits include 24/7 roadside assistance and towing up to 10 miles. Considering AAA only tows its basic members 5 miles, at a much higher monthly-rate, this is a deal! Roadside assistance includes flat tire repair, jump starts, fuel delivery (if you run out of gas), lockout service and winching.

Get GasBack

Similar to cashback programs, GasBuddy offers a GasBack to users. GasBuddy works with hundreds of retailers to help you earn gas back on everyday purchases. Users can earn up to $10 back, or 10% back per purchase, in gas. Users can redeem their GasBack, right at the pump when they pay with GasBuddy.

There’s no need to wait for pesky rewards points to slowly accrue, like other programs. A few of GasBuddy’s affiliated brands and retailers include: Dick’s Sporting Goods, Old Navy, Petco, Zulily, The Container Store, Reebok, Garmin, Pep Boys and The Home Depot.
