Save Money on Virtually Every Gallon of Gas With GasBuddy

By Danielle Wirsansky on October 11, 2017

Ever lamented the high price of gas? Ever wish you knew where the cheapest gas could be found? Ever hope you would find a way to get discounted gas? Then GasBuddy is for you!

An app aimed at connecting drivers with the pit stop place that fulfills all their needs, GasBuddy is helping to save students money. According to GasBuddy, “With 70 million downloads, GasBuddy is the leader in crowdsourced information to help drivers find the best gas prices, closest stations, friendliest service, cleanest restrooms, tastiest coffee and much more. GasBuddy is the leading source for the most accurate, real-time fuel prices at more than 140,000 gas stations in the U.S., Canada, and Australia.”

To better serve their customers, they have now released a new payment service called “Pay with GasBuddy” which is geared directly towards students, according to a press release. It now offers a 15 cent discount per gallon on the first purchase of gas and a five cent per gallon discount on all following purchases. This app will help students to save money, regardless of their location or where they purchase their gas.

The program offers many other features and perks for students, including that it is free to enroll in, no credit application is necessary, it works everywhere, and students who are enrolled save on every gas purchase and every gallon they purchase while a part of the program. And, as an added bonus for students looking to sign up, the process to sign up is simple, secure, and relatively brief.

Those interested in signing up for the Pay with GasBuddy program should visit or download the free GasBuddy smartphone app and click on the wallet icon. Connect your account to a valid checking account to Pay with GasBuddy, and you’re in! Your card will arrive in the mail and once you set up your Driver ID, you will be ready to go and save!
