Deal Tip #1: Plenti rounds up Gas points

We start a new series of “Deal Tips”, posts that can help you make the most of your money. We start with the Plenti rewards program. Their gas rewards are pretty stingy, 1 point per gallon of gas, which, given the current gas prices, is about 0.3% to 0.4%. Sometimes they have special bonus point promotions which helps a bit.

So this brings us to the tip – they round up the gallons. So for example, if you buy 3.75 gallons of gas, they will give you 4 points, rounding it up mathematically. This is more useful when you have one of those 4X to 10X bonus points limited time promotions (they appear in your account). So, strategically, pay attention to the pump, and make sure the amount you put in the car rounds up.

This is not a lot of points obviously, but everything counts and they do add up over time, especially if you use a lot of gas.
