Update: This offer is no longer available through our site as of Oct. 16, 2017.Thanks to a new partnership between Discover and Gulf Gas, Discover cardholders can save 15 cents per gallon of gas this summer. The limited-time offer is available to cardholders who download the Gulf Pay app and link their Discover card as the preferred method of payment. According to senior director of credit card operations for Gulf Oil, Marg McDonnell, the new promotion provides “exclusive savings to an already loyal and growing group of existing cardholders with Gulf Pay.”
The promotion runs through Oct. 15, 2017, and is only available at participating gas stations throughout New York and New England.
Download, pump and save
To participate in the offer, first download the Gulf Pay app in the App Store or Google Play. Next, create an account, and link your Discover card within the wallet. While at participating Gulf stations, enter your pump number in the mobile app, and pump your gas. You will automatically save 15 cents on each gallon of gas – up to 20 gallons per visit for a total of 18 visits.
In addition to allowing you to pay at the pump using your mobile phone, the Gulf Pay app also lets users locate the closet Gulf gas stations, access live gas pricing, get driving directions and see station offerings.
Which Discover card should you use?
On top of the 15 cents per gallon that you’ll save with the Gulf Pay app, you can use the Discover it Chrome Gas and Restaurant card to earn bonus cash back on your gas purchases. The card pays 2 percent cash back on up to $1,000 of combined gas and restaurant purchases each quarter, plus it automatically matches all of the cash back you’ve earned at the end of your first year.
The Discover it Cash Rewards card offers 5 percent cash back on categories that rotate quarterly, including gas. However, the gas category – which was available January through March 2017 – is not available during the timeframe of the Gulf Pay promotion.
