With our passel of kids, John and I have spent many years driving big vehicles. We bought our current full-size Ford van when we had five kids, with zero clue we’d eventually fill a 12-passenger van. (At the time, the thought probably would have terrified us, actually. Isn’t it funny how God so gently leads us in directions we’d never imagine?)
At the time we went for the big van for its towing capability. We also have an old 26-foot travel trailer–a hugely heavy beast– and John wanted the V10 engine in the Ford econoline. Though that V10 engine excels at towing and at people-hauling, as you can imagine it doesn’t get the best gas mileage. The van averages 14 mpg running around town, and about 9 mpg when we’re towing that trailer. Pitiful, right? With the increase in gas prices in the past few years, we’ve really been feeling pain at the gas pump. As much as possible we drive our minivan (20 mpg) or John’s tiny Festiva (42 mpg- yehaw!)
I’m looking forward to someday getting rid of the big van. But with 6 kids still at home, and the occasional college student or friend joining us on trips, that time isn’t quite yet. So when I heard about the Fuel Rewards Network™ program, I was interested. It’s possible to earn rewards by shopping online at designated retailers, at some restaurants, or even at some grocery stores to earn more credit.
One of the things we’re hoping to do sometime soon is update our boys’ bathroom. (Hoping to blog about that this summer.) I’ve been looking for good prices on a new shower stall, so when it comes time to buy, I’ll be sure to access to home improvement sites via the Fuel Rewards Network Online Mall. To earn rewards for local dining or grocer purchases, you need to make sure your debit or credit card is linked to your Fuel Rewards Network Account, something I haven’t done yet. But I figure just with the occasional online purchase, I should be able to earn some rewards.
You can also sign up for your very own Fuel Rewards Network program Card here!
