Customers can earn points in increments of 100 by purchasing $100 in food or household items, filling qualifying prescriptions in the pharmacy or by purchasing $50 in participating gift cards. Earning 100 points produces fuel savings of 10 cents per gallon. Customers may use up to $1.00 per gallon savings per transaction, up to a limit of 35 gallons. For Kroger Central Division fuel centers, an automatic 3 cents per gallon discount is added for any customer using a loyalty card at the time of fuel purchase.
