Recent boom in road trips and RV-rentals drives growth,
BOSTON — GasBuddy’s Pay with GasBuddy payments program has surpassed half a billion dollars in fuel transactions since the program started in August 2017. That is $500 million worth of gasoline purchased using Pay with GasBuddy, a milestone for the company.
“Pay with GasBuddy provides the convenience and efficiency in fuel savings that consumers demand, making it the payment of choice for hundreds of thousands of drivers,” said Sarah McCrary, CEO at GasBuddy. “No matter where people live, what their credit scores are, or what fuel brands are available to them, our mission at GasBuddy is to provide everyone with a way to save.”
Drivers who enroll in the program receive a Pay with GasBuddy debit card that is connected to their checking account. When consumers swipe the card at the pump, they receive automatic discounts on their fuel purchase. GasBuddy has continued to add to this user experience, including the ability to earn free gas credit–GasBack–by shopping with brands on the GasBuddy platform.
Over the last couple of months as the country battles COVID-19, GasBuddy has entered an inflection point, it said. Record unemployment rates have created a new appetite for savings. The recent boom in road trips, RV-rentals and van-life has brought increased need for fuel-savings options and flexibility, said the company.
Founded in 2000, Boston-based GasBuddy allows users to locate gas stations based on fuel prices, location, ratings and reviews.
