1 Way to Save on Gas

SmartPay iPhone App

If you could save 10 cents per gallon every time you filled up, would you use your PayPal account at the pump? Cumberland Farms a chain of gas stations is testing out that theory with their SmartPay app and program.

Simply sign up for the program and get a SmartPay card  or the app that is tied to your PayPal account, and you can swipe it at the pump instead of your credit card or enter the pump information on your app and pay with your smart phone. Because the gas station is able to save on credit card fees, they are able to pass along the discount to you.

Is this something you’d try? Find more money-saving apps here.

    I’m too paranoid of having my info stolen to try this, but it sounds convenient.

    I’d definitely try this, and I have a couple of Cumberland Farms stations near me. I would love to hear from someone else who has used it first! Anyone??
