    When driving for hours, sometimes even days, it’s easy to forget to fill up the tank until the red light starts blinking. It’s easy to locate the nearest gas station and check prices, which is especially useful for saving money during summer when prices are much higher.

    You're not getting anywhere if your gas tank is empty. If your summer road trip takes you far, you are likely to have to fill up. To avoid wasting 100's of dollars on overpriced fuel, you can use GasBuddy to find the most affordable gas stations in the area.

    Even if you’ve kept your old car in tip-top shape and running at 40mpg, there is nothing worse than being out of gas and not knowing where you can refuel your car. You can easily locate nearby gas stations and compare prices so you can fill up your tank when you need to.

    Dropping 50 bucks on gas is the worst! I use gas buddy all of the time to avoid overpriced gas stations and keep my trips from going over budget. It's also great for finding clean restrooms!

    It can get quite frustrating when you've just tanked up your vehicle only to realize that a gas station across the street has gas for 15 cents less per gallon. But you can now save up to $340 per week on average by locating the cheapest gas stations nearby.

    Maintaining your car can get expensive, the best way to keep costs down is to take preventative care and make sure there's plenty of gas and oil. Here you can save even more by finding the cheapest gas station in a 5 or 10 block radius.

    Anytime you are in the car, the last thing you want to do is worry about spending 1/3 of your trip finding the best gas prices. That's why my friends and I have this app on our phones. It helps us find the best prices anywhere we are.

    If you want to enjoy your summer travels, saving 10 to 15 cents per gallon at the pump could be the right place to start. Convenient savings are right at your fingertips.

    One of the expenses you might forget about that can easily cost you over $300/month is getting gas every week or two. Why not use your phone to save money every time you go to the pump?

    This is such an easy way of finding the cheapest gas prices near to where you are, meaning you don't need to pay a premium when filling your car up. There's also a daily draw on the app to win $100 in free gas!

  • Really good but..... May 29, 2021

    By Cheflady00
    This app and what is does is great. My issue comes when the Gas Buddy credit card comes in to play. We got the credit card, and it links to the bank acct of your choice. Easy enough. I used it for the first time and all went well- or so I thought. About 5 days later I received a notice from gas buddy that they were unable to process charge due to insufficient funds. I was confused because there was money in acct when I got gas and money was there now. Apparently, when they finally decided to process the charge, our acct had dropped to about $5 less that what I owed on gas but money had been deposited within the same 24 hours that gas buddy tried to obtain funds owed. (What are the chances?) My mistake was that I assumed the gas buddy debit card would work like any other card and withdraw funds within 24(-48hrs) max. They wait almost 5 days and for us ,that isn’t doable. I gave them another chance. Watched acct closely this time. I received yet another email stating insufficient funds and this just wasn’t so. I had to call and talk with someone who helped me out but it was a hassle and shouldn’t have been this hard. For us, the credit card offered to receive additional discounts just wasn’t worth it. And actually ended up costing us more. Just be warned, if you use this card- there will be a significant delay from when you use card and when it is withdrawn from your bank acct.

    We have been using GasBuddy since last summer and I would say we have saved at least $100 in cash. Real Money not coupons money in the bank! We have the premium membership for 9.99 a month and we save X amount for the first 50 gallons a month on top of whatever gas alert we find so we could fill up saving .88 a gallon. After our first 50 gallons gas goes back .05 off a gallon on top of the gas alert until the next month. Gas alerts are gas station's sales prices. Once activated4hours to redeem.

    Good app for finding the best gas prices. It could use some improvements: 1 - Many brands want you to be a member, or use their app, or card to get the lowest price. Cumberland Farms and BJs Wholesale are two examples. This app should disclose "membership or card required" to get price. 2 - Related, some gas stations will only sell to members (Costco). This should be disclosed in the app.
  • 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.

    I report gas prices pretty regularly. I check gas prices every time I am ready to fill up. I really like being able to check prices before I get to the station. I have a 'favorites list' that has my frequently used stations which makes it much easier to check prices. And whenever I want, I can enter the current contest to win free gas.

    Very useful app. I just have a couple of wishes: Include ethanol-free stations and something like an arrow or cardinal point in the results. i.e. I am travelling westbound on I-40 and too many of the results I get are east of me. I only see that after picking the station and asking for directions. Throw some sort of vehicle maintenance log, no matter how basic, and I'll gladly pay for the app! New request: Make it easier to read through logs and/or export them to a PC.

    This app is helpful, I use it often to find and compare fuel prices. It can save you money on your fuel expenses. If you have not tried this useful app, try it and see if it helps you locate and compare fuel prizes for your fuel needs. Convenient and saves me time!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Great App Aug 22, 2019

    By Sloppy cheeseburger
    This is one of the best apps that I use, I like to look at it before my wife and I go out for a day of shopping. This way I know where the best price for gas is in my area. Plus we use it when we are traveling as well. I wouldn't be with out this APP. I can't say that I like the latest update, it makes it harder to navigate from 1 location to the next. I don't understand what was wrong with the old App. Why don't you listen to what users tell you? You have taken a great App and turned into something one has to wonder why you have it on your phone. I can't enter a Sams Club location that I have on my I pod but can't get it on my I phone. What the hell have you guys done??? I still don't like your new format, but I still use it.I have been trying to get the Walmart station located in Henrietta New York back on my list but you guys fail to do so. It's a good thing i have it saved under favorites because that's the only I can get the prices when i need it. Get with it and fix your app.

    Most of the time it doesn't work, when it does work, the savings are not worth the frustration and you don't gain the advertised savings. They push you toward the premium membership. Cancellation instructions are WRONG!! I've spent 30minutes trying to figure out how to cancel! STAY AWAY FROM THIS APP!!!!
  • Jan 13, 2022

    By Trista Montgomery
    Getting really upset that all the places with deal prices are the ones that don't have receipts at the pump (and there are long lines inside). I don't have my gasbuddy card with me all the time (nor do the pumps allow it to work half the time). Also my credit cards have been stolen at the pumps 3 times in a year. This app is supposed to help and save you $$ but it's only causing me headaches.
  • GasBuddy Seems To Like Hiding Info From Its Customers Jan 16, 2020

    By ChiTownMo
    GasBuddy has to be one of the most frustrating companies I’ve done business with. Easily 50% of the time that I fill up my car, I get a discount for less than I’m supposed to. I check and double check the math to make certain that I did the math correctly and used the correct figures and and it’s wrong all the time. The receipts fail to give you the exact amount of the cost/gallon you were charged for each transaction. It will tell you how much you saved but not how much you were charged/gallon. Also, you cannot see how many gallons are left for the month of the 40 gallons/month you get a month at the $0.20/gallon discount, so sometimes you do not get the discount amount you were expecting because you allegedly already used all of your 40 gallons at $0.20 off/month. GasBuddy says on its Customer Service outgoing message that your monthly 40 gallon balance is clearly shown on the receipts, however I have checked both the paper receipt from the gas station, as well as the receipt emailed to me from GasBuddy itself, and neither receipt shows the balance. I checked all over the app too. The app does not show you your monthly 40 gallon @ $0.20 off/gallon balance anywhere. I suppose you just have to guess how many gallons you used each month so far to even predict if you will get a $0.20 discount or not. GasBuddy is a constant frustration in these (avoidable) respects.
  • 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.

    This was a great app, I have the pay card, it was great! Unfortunately since upgrading my phone, I can't even open the app. I've tried uninstalling & reinstalling it numerous times. I keep getting a message saying "can't connect to their servers try again later", for a week already!?
  • 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 ?

    There are many problems with this app. The trip map view is over-cluttered with flags that don't have prices, and the trip list view does not list the cheapest stations. For example, on a trip I am on now, I can clearly see diesel at 3.08 on the map view, but on the list view, the cheapest is 3.24. That would cost me about $8 on a fill if I didn't catch it. I'd rate this app as only marginally usable with a poor UI.
  • 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.
  • Unreliable Crowd Sourcing Dec 15, 2021

    By Haralamb0s
    The app itself is designed very well. The user interface is attractive, it’s very easy to use, and it gives you filters to select what kind of gas you want and the map works seemlessly. Honestly the app would be above and beyond 5 stars if there was any accountability or way to report abusers of the app. For weeks now two people in my area have been consistently reporting the wrong diesel prices by 40-50 cents at a number of stations. One of them doesn’t even sell diesel and people are reporting diesel prices. There’s no way to report them, there’s no way to contact customer service listed anywhere in the app, and it just makes the whole entire app useless if you can’t trust people. This app was designed for people to help each other find gas prices by crowdsourcing the information and basically using an honors system in the hopes someone else would come behind and also verify the same price. If people are being dishonest or just ignorant and misreporting the price for the corresponding fuel type, then there either needs to be a way to flag it, or flag them for not knowing how to use the app properly. Either way, the app is great but the fact that the app doesn’t hold anyone accountable for false reporting makes it useless if people aren’t using it correctly.
  • 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.

  • Save A Bundle!!! Dec 2, 2017

    By 4DD317
    I’ve been using GasBuddy for over a year now and I usually buy Shell gasoline locally. I love the way I can easily find the least expensive prices here in the city. I like looking at the Map of prices vs the list, myself. I’ve saved so much money with GasBuddy along with the Fuel Rewards card from Shell and the combination of the two have provided an even greater savings. GasBuddy is equally as beneficial when traveling and also provides great versatility of individual setup within the app, as well. I love Google everything, but, Apple Maps seems more user friendly to me and I love that when finding directions to a station out of town, when bringing up directions, it goes directly to Apple Maps (because of the options I have chosen). I have never had any technical issues or crashes as I have with other apps either. Thank you so much for saving me money and offering such a user friendly application!!! Keep up the great work, GasBuddy!!!
  • Thank you! Sep 15, 2017

    By Kareve
    I just want to write a quick note of thank you to the developers of this app. You were a real lifesaver this past week down here in South Florida during hurricane Irma. I was frozen in terror of whether not to get on the road with the stories of all the gas outages. I have a toddler and couldn't imagine driving around town looking for stations and waiting in long lines. Once I read about your app and website online, I downloaded it. Within five minutes I found a gas station that still had gas and not too long of a line. I was able to make my drive up Orlando a little less scared knowing that I had you guys on my side. As soon as I got to my evacuation point, I used the app again to find gas before the storm hit so I was immediately able to get back on the road afterwards to get home. I can't say thank you enough! During an incredibly anxious and scary time, you made things a little bit easier and that means the world to me.

    Good app to keep track of gas prices as long as your community participates and keep info up to date. Their ads are a bit intrusive at times, but they do show local gas offers that are worthwhile. They have the option to earn gas back through their app but I always forget to use it since I don't think of shopping through GasBuddy. Their premium GasBuddy subscription was a lifesaver when I needed a tow truck and I don't carry that through my insurance anymore because of them.

    Gasbuddy is a free app that you can use to locate nearby gas stations. They also offer a free gasbuddy card which you can link to your checking account. Using the gasbuddy card, you activate "deals" to save 5-25 cents off per gallon at participating gas stations. They also have other promos from time and a daily lottery for a $100 gas giveway. You enter the lottery by earning points for reporting gas prices. Overall, this is a useful app for saving money on gas that is free to use.
  • Love This App Sep 13, 2017

    By Lakush13
    I have been using Gas Buddy for quite some time now and have experienced no issues with it. On our recent drive out of the state of Florida and then back in after Irma passed, our search for gas would have been far more difficult had we not had the Gas Buddy app. Kudos to the Gas Buddy team for quickly updating the app to include information about stations out of gas and out of power. For those dinging the app for having incorrect information, you have to know that the gas price information is provided by the app users and it is helpful to look under the price to see when that price was submitted. The older the submission, the more the chance that the prices have changed. The prices are not a guarantee, but it is still far better than having no information at all. And saving money on gas over time using this app is the biggest benefit. Thank you Gas Buddy!!!

    Good app for finding the best gas prices. It could use some improvements: 1 - Many brands want you to be a member, or use their app, or card to get the lowest price. Cumberland Farms and BJs Wholesale are two examples. This app should disclose "membership or card required" to get price. 2 - Related, some gas stations will only sell to members (Costco). This should be disclosed in the app.

    Very useful app. I just have a couple of wishes: Include ethanol-free stations and something like an arrow or cardinal point in the results. i.e. I am travelling westbound on I-40 and too many of the results I get are east of me. I only see that after picking the station and asking for directions. Throw some sort of vehicle maintenance log, no matter how basic, and I'll gladly pay for the app! New request: Make it easier to read through logs and/or export them to a PC.
  • 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.
  • Really good but..... May 29, 2021

    By Cheflady00
    This app and what is does is great. My issue comes when the Gas Buddy credit card comes in to play. We got the credit card, and it links to the bank acct of your choice. Easy enough. I used it for the first time and all went well- or so I thought. About 5 days later I received a notice from gas buddy that they were unable to process charge due to insufficient funds. I was confused because there was money in acct when I got gas and money was there now. Apparently, when they finally decided to process the charge, our acct had dropped to about $5 less that what I owed on gas but money had been deposited within the same 24 hours that gas buddy tried to obtain funds owed. (What are the chances?) My mistake was that I assumed the gas buddy debit card would work like any other card and withdraw funds within 24(-48hrs) max. They wait almost 5 days and for us ,that isn’t doable. I gave them another chance. Watched acct closely this time. I received yet another email stating insufficient funds and this just wasn’t so. I had to call and talk with someone who helped me out but it was a hassle and shouldn’t have been this hard. For us, the credit card offered to receive additional discounts just wasn’t worth it. And actually ended up costing us more. Just be warned, if you use this card- there will be a significant delay from when you use card and when it is withdrawn from your bank acct.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Pleased with the price finding aspect. Disappointed with the need to link an account to get the savings per gallon aspect. I though it would be just like a rewards club for specific brands but better. Still, that's my personal expectations, it's an all around decent app otherwise.

    Screen areas load at different speeds, almost ensuring you click on an ad. Distance isn't always accurate. Needs dark mode! New features get introduced before fixing standing issues. All that being said, it is nice to find prices where you are. Dark mode!
  • 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 ?

    There are many problems with this app. The trip map view is over-cluttered with flags that don't have prices, and the trip list view does not list the cheapest stations. For example, on a trip I am on now, I can clearly see diesel at 3.08 on the map view, but on the list view, the cheapest is 3.24. That would cost me about $8 on a fill if I didn't catch it. I'd rate this app as only marginally usable with a poor UI.
  • 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.

    Will help you save money by showing mostly accurate gas prices near you. Don't bother getting the GasBuddy Card. It doesn't work, and customer service is completely absent. Since I reported my issues, I've gotten 2 emails asking if I am still having problems. I responded that I am, but don't actually get any help from them.

    App won't open normally or in a timely fashion. I have to force stop it and clear the cache and then it MIGHT work. So tired of pain 9.99 a month for a non working application that only allows 50 gallons. I may save $2-3 a month. Really thinking of getting rid of this service due to the volume of errors.

    Most of the time it doesn't work, when it does work, the savings are not worth the frustration and you don't gain the advertised savings. They push you toward the premium membership. Cancellation instructions are WRONG!! I've spent 30minutes trying to figure out how to cancel! STAY AWAY FROM THIS APP!!!!

    Getting really upset that all the places with deal prices are the ones that don't have receipts at the pump (and there are long lines inside). I don't have my gasbuddy card with me all the time (nor do the pumps allow it to work half the time). Also my credit cards have been stolen at the pumps 3 times in a year. This app is supposed to help and save you $$ but it's only causing me headaches.
  • GasBuddy Seems To Like Hiding Info From Its Customers Jan 16, 2020

    By ChiTownMo
    GasBuddy has to be one of the most frustrating companies I’ve done business with. Easily 50% of the time that I fill up my car, I get a discount for less than I’m supposed to. I check and double check the math to make certain that I did the math correctly and used the correct figures and and it’s wrong all the time. The receipts fail to give you the exact amount of the cost/gallon you were charged for each transaction. It will tell you how much you saved but not how much you were charged/gallon. Also, you cannot see how many gallons are left for the month of the 40 gallons/month you get a month at the $0.20/gallon discount, so sometimes you do not get the discount amount you were expecting because you allegedly already used all of your 40 gallons at $0.20 off/month. GasBuddy says on its Customer Service outgoing message that your monthly 40 gallon balance is clearly shown on the receipts, however I have checked both the paper receipt from the gas station, as well as the receipt emailed to me from GasBuddy itself, and neither receipt shows the balance. I checked all over the app too. The app does not show you your monthly 40 gallon @ $0.20 off/gallon balance anywhere. I suppose you just have to guess how many gallons you used each month so far to even predict if you will get a $0.20 discount or not. GasBuddy is a constant frustration in these (avoidable) respects.
  • 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.

    This was a great app, I have the pay card, it was great! Unfortunately since upgrading my phone, I can't even open the app. I've tried uninstalling & reinstalling it numerous times. I keep getting a message saying "can't connect to their servers try again later", for a week already!?
  • Unreliable Crowd Sourcing Dec 15, 2021

    By Haralamb0s
    The app itself is designed very well. The user interface is attractive, it’s very easy to use, and it gives you filters to select what kind of gas you want and the map works seemlessly. Honestly the app would be above and beyond 5 stars if there was any accountability or way to report abusers of the app. For weeks now two people in my area have been consistently reporting the wrong diesel prices by 40-50 cents at a number of stations. One of them doesn’t even sell diesel and people are reporting diesel prices. There’s no way to report them, there’s no way to contact customer service listed anywhere in the app, and it just makes the whole entire app useless if you can’t trust people. This app was designed for people to help each other find gas prices by crowdsourcing the information and basically using an honors system in the hopes someone else would come behind and also verify the same price. If people are being dishonest or just ignorant and misreporting the price for the corresponding fuel type, then there either needs to be a way to flag it, or flag them for not knowing how to use the app properly. Either way, the app is great but the fact that the app doesn’t hold anyone accountable for false reporting makes it useless if people aren’t using it correctly.
  • Terrible Feb 24, 2021

    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.

    I don't like that I cannot filter top-tier gas stations. No way to give feedback in the app. Not to mention it's full of wrong prices and they don't wanna do anything about it. I can see how it'll be really easy to misuse the app to bring in customers with false low prices. I'm 100% sure this is happening but I don't have proof and time to always report. I just see prices being updated like an hour or less ago and then I go and see that the price is way off.
  • 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!

    No Customer Support! Don't look for a valid real person to talk to as there is no good phone number for Customer Service. Just a loop message that plays over and over and then hangs up. Sent a ticket in and someone responded with quotes from the FAQ section. Used this app for 2-3 yrs but if you have a problem you're on your own. I'll look for something else.
