Digital ‘friend’ provides personalized gas discounts

GasBuddy mobile app

A new feature of the GasBuddy travel and navigation app is bringing the flash sale model to fuel purchases.

The GasBuddy “Deal Alerts” offering provides consumers below-advertised gas prices that are uniquely tailored to the individual based on factors such as location, retailer- and partner-funded discounts, and app-use frequency. Consumers who check the GasBuddy app and use the Pay with GasBuddy card for fuel purchases gain access to deeper, dynamic discounts personalized to them.

“We’re embarking on one of our most significant product updates with the Deal Alerts feature,” said Sarah McCrary, GasBuddy CEO. “For nearly two decades GasBuddy has helped consumers save money by surfacing gas prices, and then more directly by introducing Pay with GasBuddy, a payments program that provides a fixed discount on every fill-up. Now with Deal Alerts, GasBuddy is doing the heavy lifting by piecing together ways to bring down the price for the consumer. At the end of the day: check the GasBuddy app, and save.” 

Users who are more active on the GasBuddy platform, which includes entering gas prices, using Pay with GasBuddy, and participating in the GasBack rewards program, will be awarded with steeper discounts. 

Deal Alerts is now available to all Pay with GasBuddy users. To start saving on every fill-up with Deal Alerts, users can sign up for the free Pay with GasBuddy program and download the latest version of the GasBuddy app in the Apple or Google Play store. Starting Feb. 20, the first 10,000 people who sign for Pay with GasBuddy will receive $5 in GasBack rewards funds.

GasBuddy covers more than 150,000 gas stations in North America, giving drivers 27 ways to save on fuel.
