    What Is the Kroger Rewards World Mastercard?

    Kroger refers to its rewards credit card as “three cards in one” because it’s a loyalty card, a rewards card and a standard Mastercard credit card, offering grocery rewards and fuel discounts for people with good credit. Cardholders get 1 point for every dollar spent on all qualifying purchases plus 2 points for qualifying purchases at Kroger’s family of stores (excluding fuel purchases) plus 3 points for purchases of Kroger brand items. Kroger’s family of stores can include Kroger, King Soopers, City Market, Dillons, Baker’s, Smith’s, Fry’s and QFC.

    Cardholders also save an additional 25 cents per gallon of gasoline purchased at Kroger fuel centers for the first year when 100 fuel points are redeemed. For every 1000 points cardholders accrue, they receive $5 in free grocery certificates.

    Kroger’s Rewards World Mastercard also offers standard zero fraud liability, Mastercard Travel Services, and MasterRental insurance. So to recap:
