  • GasBuddy Jul 9, 2019

    By Myheroisme55555
    I’ve always liked this APP, but over the last year or so alone is all, I’ve learned to love it. It’s just gotten better and better every time I use the APP it seems like. It’s really grown a lot since it first started way back then, and there’s just so many things you can do on the APP now and they’ve turned it into an amazing APP all the way around. It’s almost addicting in a way, but not in a bad way at all. It gives you a good and also a very fun chance to win gas money and get points for entries to win free gas, or get gas % or gas $ back when you purchase anything from certain stores listed on the APP. There’s a good amount of stores to pick from actually. So whenever you make a purchase at that store through that APP, you get gas money no matter what. They also send you a free card to use when you actually get money built up on that card, and you’ll be able to use it just like debit card or credit card and just swipe it at the gas station pump instead of your regular bank card that you may have. It’s pretty cool actually and it really helps if you actually try it out. 5 stars all of the way.

    While there is always room for improvement, this might be one of the best I've seen. However, I would suggest that for the drawings, that they select 1 person a day, per state instead of the whole country. This will increase the odds of people winning which means more people are likely to report prices. Also, on the reporting they should also allow reporting of membership prices, so like Irving's members receive $0.06 off a gallon, but that membership price has no way to be reported

    So it is absolutely the best! There's absolutely no problems finding locations to get gas at the best price or closer to you whichever choice you decide to search by. Soon as you sign up you earn $10 free gas. Who could beat that?!!! Really having a good time full and around with the different options in learning more about the app every day. Thanks a bunch

    Update 4/6 - now the settings for the stations list keeps changing. Will you guys please fix this. 4/5 Since this morning - it keeps kicking me out. I've had to sign back in twice in the last hour. Since my previous review said "Good app but customer service is terrible" we'll see if it gets fixed.

    We use this app all the time on long road trips as well as checking the prices at our local stations. With a 30 gallon diesel tank, even a few cents per gallon savings adds up. For long road trips, it would be nice if the operating hours of the stations were in the app.

    So it is impossible to update bank info (on android) so the last time I paid for gas I was able to complete my purchase but GB let me know later they could not complete the transaction, and I should fix this to reactivate card. But they provide no way to contact them to pay them (I've tried). So GasBuddy doesn't know how to get themselves paid if there is an issue, but I got free gas. You only save 30 to 50 cents per fill up so I am not sure it's worth giving up my data any more.

  • Scam Sep 17, 2019

    By DumpsterFireCompany
    Simply stated, this company is a scam. I made my first online purchase at Walmart, after clicking on the “deal” link that’s in the app. Presumably, the idea is that as long as you use the link and complete your purchase online, they will give you 4% “gas back” on your purchase that can be redeemed at the pump. I spent over $500 on tires, and submitted my proof as requested (email confirmation for purchase being the same as on file with gas buddy acct, order number, etc). Took 3 days for a response and it was quick and rude when I received it. “Thanks for the email” followed by telling me pickup orders aren’t eligible for gas back, as well as saying I should check the fine print (which I carefully read the disclosures before I completed my purchases and nowhere does it say your choice of delivery or pickup affects anything). I work in banking so disclosures are everything to me because I see people all the time have their expectations not met because they never read the disclosures they agreed to. If I had paid for the premium membership, I’d be even more annoyed because it was something I paid for to be treated as such, like we are bothering them for asking to hold up their end of what they are promising. But since it is free, I will be simply removing my bank account from the gas buddy card and going back to using my fuel rewards card at Shell stations like I used to. Not worth the hassle. At all.

  • Hardly user friendly hardly worth the effort Mar 5, 2019

    By HansenBoards
    Followed the initial instructions. Verified the small deposits in my bank. Card arrived. Tried to activate card. Error. Sent request for support. Solution: enter banking info again and wait “x” days for deposits to then verify. Meantime: I have a card in my possession. All I wanted to do was make use of saving money at the pump. At this rate I may as well not bother at all. Total time wasted on this app: 3 weeks. Also there is NEVER anyone “free” to take your call should you have a question ( like mine ) about setting up, or anything else for that matter. As loyalty bonus and payment cards go this one is pretty shoddy. Update: even premium membership month to month doesn’t get anything by way of rapid or transparent support. You can call the number all you want and still get an automated message to leave your name and email?? And someone will return your call... if you actually need to use what you pay for you’re pretty much SOL. The “offers” are for online only purchases. So if you use your VISA card anywhere, for example , it has to be online to get the added bonuses. They have been rolling out forever some winsome ideas that on paper look great but have yet to manifest - parking , car detailing , oil changes - how about you get customer service right first and then work from there ?

  • I actually love this app it ain’t what it used to be Jan 14, 2020

    By Javier rover
    I gave you 2 stars because when I can get it to work it works but just okay. I’m using a iPhone 10 with the maximum amount of memory available and about 80% of the time I cannot get the app to open. That’s very frustrating as my wife drives most of the time and we both love getting prices sometimes we used to pull into stations and get the info just for fun. At first I thought it was just my phone but not so as virtually all my other apps open fine. Also when I shutdown everything and reboot my phone still it doesn’t work. Please fix this as I’ve been a user from like the very earliest days of your app and it’s a concept I fully believe in. Just yesterday I got gas a full $.30 cents a gallon cheaper than in my neighborhood and not at a discount station. At the station people were blowing their horn for me to move it took so long for the app to come up. I was persistent and parked and waited until I could get the app to work. I’ve got over 4 million points from posting prices help me out here. Anyway, when the app does open I still love it but it hangs up and doesn’t immediately post my changes even when it doesn’t hang up. I now write down prices and update from home. Fix your app guys there are customers missing out here.

    The app rarely connects, especially when you are sitting at the gas station, very aggravating. I changed my email address, and the only way to get it updated on my account is to send them an email. Five emails later, still hasn't been changed. This company is run by a bunch of buffoons.

  • Use to like this app Jul 22, 2019

    By Life4dabeach
    I have had the GasBuddy app on my phones for many many years (with an iPhone 4) and it has worked great. In the beginning it was easy to use and throughout the years the developers kept adding new features to it. The Recall feature for your car, I don’t use. I think that it does not need to be there because I get those notifications from other sources. But this last update makes it EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to find the gas station near you. I have updated the price of a 7-Eleven that was listed at the top of the list, but that station was 5 miles away. This app is supposed to be quick and easy to update and see where the cheapest gas prices are near you. It is not supposed to try to sell you other gas stations that ain’t even close to your location. One more thing. With all of these new features, this app takes forever to open, load, and update the locations of the surrounding gas stations. I wish this app was simple and easier to use like it use to be.

    With gas prices going up, this app is perfect for finding the cheapest gas in town! You can also get the gasbuddy card which links to your checking account and get 5¢ off per gallon at a lot of stations.

    I like it when it works but you have knocked me off several times like - right now! It's hard to continue using and playing when a long time member realizes they are off the system & games again for a month or more! This needs to be checked and discovered daily by your team - and fixed immediately so that members do not get discouraged and either: QUIT USING YOU OR continue to write and beg to find themselves among the Active Members - Players, once again. Thank you!

    It's Okay. Must say I save more with the free version. I tried the paid and "saved" the same amount I paid for the month... Meaning it's not worth for me. Once I reached that point the app also reached the limit amount it let's you pump for the month, with discount.

  • Desperately needs Top Tier search filter Feb 20, 2019

    By KY-doc
    Wonderful crowd sourced program. However, many major vehicle brands recommend using ONLY Top Tier certified fuels. We need a filter available to search only for these certified fuels. Each of these automakers recommends the use of Top Tier Detergent Gasoline in their owner's manuals. Top Tier Detergent Gasoline and Top Tier Diesel Fuel are performance specifications and trademarks designed and supported by several major automakers. BMW, General Motors, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Ford, Honda, Toyota, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, Navistar, and Audi support the gasoline standard, while General Motors, Volkswagen, Detroit Diesel, and Navistar support the diesel standard (as of 2018).Top Tier fuels must maintain levels of detergent additives that result in a higher standard of engine cleanliness and performance as compared to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirement. In addition, Top Tier fuels may not contain metallic additives, which can harm the vehicle emission system and create pollutants. As of 2018, Top Tier Detergent Gasoline is available from 61 licensed retail brands and Top Tier Diesel Fuel is available from 5 licensed retail brands.

  • Flaws Needing Attention Nov 23, 2018

    By 1H1B2G1C1D
    The concept of this app I love as it lets consumers aware of the best gas prices in the area. Your prediction option ALWAYS suggest that we hold off in buying as gas prices will go down tomorrow. A senseless option as it's not accurate. Since last update this app is difficult to open before closing completely. Once open have experience many "Something went wrong" and does accurately tally entered posts or allow you to enter posts due to the app flaw. Turning into a nuisance to use the app. App has difficulty in finding gas stations that I am at. Some gas stations are no longer listed yet still operating. Mind boggling My assessment of flaws needing attention continue. I love the concept of this app but since the start of using this app to today the system is boggled down and oh so slow. Stations will have been passed by to report price updates as the app is still concentrating on updating one station you already drove by...the app will send message “something went wrong” or cut out and prematurely close. Really frustrating to the point I don’t use the app as frequently as I did in the earlier years.

  • Works but confusing UI and watch app is poor Feb 8, 2021

    By Drob518
    The fundamentals of the app work, but the UI is a bit confusing. For instance, access to favorite stations is not intuitive and should be more prominent (should be one of the primary navigation buttons at the bottom). I live near a river and the distanced-based metrics are nearly useless. Sure, the station with the cheapest gas is 2 miles away, as the crow flies. But it’s 25 miles away in terms of driving distance because I have to go across a bridge to cross the river and the bridge is several miles away in the opposite direction. The ideal would be to interface with a mapping app (eg. Apple Maps, Google Maps, Waze, etc.) to figure out “closeness” based on driving distance and time. Without that sort of capability, favorites are critical. Then, I can use favorites to override the app’s naive, as-the-crow-flies distance algorithm. The watch app would be very useful as a quick way to see this info, but it unfortunately only shows stations by the naive distance algorithm and has no ability to view favorites. Fix these problems and it would be 4 or 5 stars.

    I really like this app for a long long time but lately you guys always update things changing the app now you’ve got things on here that has nothing to do with Gas Buddies this app is something to do with gas prices not my personal vehicle or car there is no need for all the updates that you guys do I’m constantly updating this app I like to report gas prices I really enjoy it but there is no reason for my personal vehicle to be on this app and all of the advertisements in between gas stations I just did an update this morning now I can’t Hardly find my points how to get on my points also leaderboard’s are for my area I have people on the leaderboard‘s that were in Chicago 500 miles from me that is not my area it’s not right or fair make this app fun once again to do as it used to be bring back the old Gas Buddies instead of adding all of this garbage to the app like your vehicle and other things there’s no need for it people want to check gas prices not their vehicle.

    The app deceives you. There is no savings here. The savings they offer like x cents per gallon is even lower than your cash back from using your credit card to pay for the gas. This app only accepts direct debit which disallow you to benefit from your credit card's cash back features. I hope they can accept credit card payment instead of direct bank acct debit. If they do, only then there is a real savings.

  • Service takes too long to set up!! Apr 11, 2019

    By DaisyBlaze
    So I got the Gasbuddy card and wanted to start using it for savings as soon as I got it. I was very very hesitant to even sign up as I was skeptical as to whether or not it would work. So I get my card in the mail and immediately went to open the app and activate only to find out my account was not verified. I’ve used several apps that wanted to link to my account and the moment they were linked I was verified so I was super sketched out when this wasn’t the case and was told to wait 4 business days to verify and activate. I waited over a month and kept getting the same response from support until finally Cailin a manager with gas body reached out and said the account had become “frozen” and that she unfroze it and once a charge of .01 would appear and I’d be able to activate. WRONG!! So I go and wait the 2 business days for the charge to appear and process and still there is no sign that it was verified on the app and I’m still unable to activate. I immediately wrote to support about my new frustrations with my needs still not being met! I’m waiting on a response but now I’m even more doubtful that this service will work at all! I’ve never been so annoyed to actually ask for my penny back ! Like really!

    Used to be a great, straightforward, easy to use app. Now whenever I try to use it, I'm constantly spammed with requests to join programs and sign up for cards. Not even worth using anymore. Uninstalled.
  • Terrible Feb 24, 2021

    By dubie2us
    Signed up for this and got my card in the mail. When I went to activate my card the app would send me an email link to click on. Each time I did (cause I tried multiple times) the link sent me back to the App Store to download the app I already had installed. Frustrated by this, I called the customer service line.... it’s 100% automated. Meaning, you only get to talk to someone if you leave a message and wait around till they decide to call you back. There’s a number in the app and a different number on the card... guess what? Leads you to the same automated system where you can’t reach a real person. So good luck getting any help there. I also sent an email, to which, I never received a reply. Brand new card and I already want to throw it in the trash. Companies like this really need to take more stock in their customer service because what I encountered is a joke. I’m sure if I could actually use the service as it’s intended it would be great but sadly whoever structured this company clearly has no real consideration for its customers and the lack there of with offering actual customer service. Thoroughly dissatisfied. I hope more people read this review and proceed with caution before signing up to this service.
