#cheapgas at murphy usa!

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 10:22 PM
If you haven't noticed I've been super busy in the days leading up to #BlogHer11. I have been trying to save money and get the best deal I can every where I go so I can have more spending money in San Diego. Don't tell my husband this though because as far as he knows, I just like to save money!

Stopping to get gas now a days is a hassle, who has the best prices, how long can we drive on E before the car will stop (lol)

Today we were super busy and had a lot of errands to run and once those were done we spent some family time at our favorite fun spot places. We needed to stop for some gas and some snacks first though and I instantly stopped at Murphy USA when I saw this sign:

Woo hoo! Save 10cents on gas?! Doesn't sound like much but we all know it adds up very quickly. I get so mad when gas raises just 2 cents over night. So being able to get cheap gas just for using a gift card? Why not!

So it was off to Wal-Mart to get a gift card! I found a ton of options but I stuck to the sports theme since the hubby loves everything sports.
Once you swip the card, just as you would a regular debit or credit card the discount comes off automatically and you see it clearly on the screen above the gas types.

Of course I couldn't leave without getting some snacks because Murphy USA always has amazing deals!

I was in the mood for some Gatorade and at this price I could not beat it. John loves Coke Zero so I was happy they were on sale also. Oh and right as I was ready to check out I saw the Skittles. At other places I usually can only buy one candy for this price! Jack pot!!

Murphy USA is a great place for gas and for snacks. Its a quick in and out type gas station since all the snacks and drinks are outside. Of course you won't find chocolate there but chips, soda, water, beef jerky are all great things to snack on on the go!

This shop/project has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias. I shop at Murphy USA all the time though so all views/opinions are my own.

I like walmart for the cheaper prices, but NONE of our walmarts have a murphy's attached to them.. are they boycotting southern florida for some reason? i've seen them, even been to them, in other places.. but no where down here has one... sigh... :(

have fun at BLOGHER 11 !!!!

Holy smokes that is a really good deal! I think we have one of those too, not too far away. I am going to have to check it out before our next road trip, because gas is KILLING me this summer!

I have no idea what Murphy's is. But you sure get some good deals there.
