Default Speedway Rewards Users....

So I just found out the other day when my girlfriend was reading the fine print on one of my rewards receipts that gas rewards won't be available again after December 31 due to new Federal Regulations. Speedway isn't allowed to give gas as rewards. So if you've been saving yours up nows the time to use it. Thought I'd give everyone a heads up.

The only reason I ever made it a point to go to speedway was for the 50 cents off.

I think I have about 60k points.
Only time I've used any was for coffee. I'll have to check in the morning what I can use.
I need to fuel up tomorrow anyway.

Pisses me off that none of those rewards deals include diesel purchases.

they told me the gas card gives you 3cents off.

if you buy a gift card you get a dollar off for every $50 you put on the card. that is 5 cents off.

I did not know you get points when buying a fuel card?

So much for that idea. Diesel is what I need.

Well I am getting rid of the '06 Ram and buying/leasing a Grand Cherokee. I could always save the card until then.

This is what I do.

I don't like that they changed the points program when gas shot up, I get less rewards now

I used to get $25-50/month in gift cards.

i'm curious as to what the federal regulation is that has now made the fuel rewards unavailable. I thought that was strange when I saw the note on the doorway on Wednesday. Of course, I'm not motivated enough to search out the legalese, either :)


We just turned them all in about three weeks ago. I think we may have one more ten-center on the counter, and I need to gas up the ole H2 anyway.

I thought the gas discount was only $.05 per gallon, 10 gallon maximum? Hardly worth cashing them in.

Unless I'm blind (which is a distinct possibility) I've seen nothing about this posted on their doors, on the receipts etc. This is the first I've heard about it the changes and my receipt today said that fuel discounts were unavailable in West Virginia and one other state but nothing about Michigan or changes to the program.

Actually, I get diesel all the time at the one off of the Grand Blanc Rd. Exit & 23.

And the one in Fenton on Owen Rd by Burger King does it too for diesel.

Other than that I haven't found another speedway that does accept the rewards for diesel.
