As a busy mom, I spend a lot of time in my car. From taking the girls to camp, driving them to school and running all my errands, my car goes through a lot of gas.

That’s not even counting the road trips! We love to travel and there’s something exciting about piling everyone in the car, snacks and all, and heading off on a brand new adventure.

Of course, with all that driving, the spending can add up. That’s why I’m always looking for ways to save and luckily, I’ve discovered Marathon’s MakeItCount™ Rewards.

MakeItCount™ Rewards

It’s already super convenient for us to shop at Marathon because we have a station just up the street from our house. With over 5,700 stations coast-to-coast, they’re easy to find when we’re on the road too.

Marathon Gas Station

I like stopping there because the stations are clean and well-lit, but my girls like it because they have so many road trip snacks to choose from! Those two are all about the snacks, but at least it keeps them busy while I’m pumping the gas.

Even better, I’m using Marathon’s MakeItCount™ Rewards program to save money when we fill up. It’s quick and easy to sign up and saves us 5¢ on every gallon every day.

Join now and you’ll even get bonus savings! Starting in September, signing up for MakeItCount™ Rewards will save you 10¢ per gallon for your first month of membership. It’s good for up to 4 visits, covering 20 gallons each time.

Not only can you save on gas, but filling up or making select purchases on snack or drinks can also earn you points that can be redeemed for additional gas discounts, hotel stays, airfare and shopping at retail stores.  I love that MakeItCount™ has partnered with brands like Wyndham and Southwest because that means when we’re on one trip, we’re already earning rewards for another one!

Additional partners include Target eGiftCards™, Domino’s Pizza, PetCo and more. Since we have to fill up our tank with gas, why not get some cool stuff out of it too!

You can even help the environment by using rewards to support the Sustain Tree Planting Program, a partner of the Arbor Day Foundation®. So, whether you want to travel more, shop more, or make the world a better place, there’s a MakeItCount™ Rewards partner for everyone.

Road Trip Games

Keeping the tank filled may be the most important part of a road trip but keeping the kids entertained is just as crucial. After all, you can only answer “Are we there yet?” so many times.

I let the kids have their video games but want to be sure we get some good family bonding time in too. That’s why these road trip games are so perfect. You don’t need anything to play most of them (and only pencil and paper for the other one) and they’re great for all ages.
