Like It's My Job - Saving Money on Gasoline

Sometimes the frustration in saving money for your goals is that you do have daily expenses. Kids gotta eat, right? ...and get places and wear something! So--I've taken my new roles as a wife and momma and tried to make my mark on saving money for our family, so we can spend or share things that mean something to us. 
Save money on GASOLINE
We all know there are cash-back credit cards for purchasing gas for your vehicles -- but what if your family doesn't feel comfortable having credit cards or may not qualify for the ones that give you the rewards you seek?
There is another way to save a few bucks each time you fill up! If that sounds good to you -- read on!
These are websites that sell discount gift cards! FREE SHIPPING!
Sites I've used: 
Cardpool checkout coupon: NewUser5 for $5 off new customers.
My referral link is here:

Sites I'd like to try: WHY--customer service and speed

Raisecheckout coupon: DEALNEWS60 for $5 off $60 or more for new customers.My referral link is here:

GiftCardZen: low prices and great customer service, but no referral program or coupons
GiftCardRescue: checkout coupon:: GCRFIVE1 to checkout for $5 off $100 AND free rush order for orders under $100::GCRRUSH1
My referral link is: here
Buy Discounted Gift Cards

The "Google" of gift cards: GiftCardGranny search prices side-by-side ...*pay attention to Ebay shipping costs

Some tricks up my sleeve:

1. Use Wishlist tools - Gas cards go FAST! I would suggest using the WISHLIST or notification features on each site and sign up for gas stations in your area. When the cards go live on the site, you get an immediate email and can log-on to purchase.

2. Buy Walmart Cards- If you have nearby Walmart gas stations, this is really a great way to go. Purchase one of their PHYSICAL gift cards
(rather than an eCard for for generally 3% off - and use it at the Gas Station at Walmart or Sam's (with a Sam's membership card). Walmart also runs promotions of 3-10 cents off per gallon if you use a gift card depending on the location. [Sometimes they do even more during the holidays! Call ahead--my nearest one is 3 cents off.]

3. Check-out Gas Buddy (also a free app) to find the cheapest gas station prices nearest to you (or route as you plan a trip!) It also has incentives to share gas prices and enter drawings for free gas!

4. Tell your friends! Cardpool and Raise each give you $5 for referring a new customer! That can really add up!
[if you'd like to join, please use my links by clicking the site names above!]

5. Go through TopCashBack! Click on my link here: for an additional 2% cash back when you go search and click the orange button to the Cardpool or Raise to make your giftcard purchase! The cash back will be on your account within 30-60 days (usually sooner). Let me know if you have questions!

NOTE:: Notice if the cards are physical or a paper print out. For gas stations, I would recommend a physical card. Check shipping times to know when to expect your card in the mail.

I hope this helps you save a few dollars! Gas is just the tip of the iceberg on these gift card sites--grocery, shopping etc. TONS of savings and cash for cards you don't want. 
How have you saved money on gas? Have you tried these card exchange companies before?
