This is really cool. An app on your phone so you no longer have to swipe your credit card at the pump!

Albertson's is the first to introduce the new technology. Unfortunately, they only have a few locations.

  • Apple St. in Boise
  • Lake Hazel St. in Boise
  • E. Avalon St. in Kuna

Here's how it works according to boisedev.com.

  • Step 1: Download the Albertson's One Touch Fuel App
  • Step 2: Put in your credit or debit card info and gas rewards number
  • Step 3: Open the app at the pump, select your gas pump number
  • Step 4: Hop out of your car, select the gas you want and fill up

Essentially this saves you from pulling out your card, putting it in the pump, waiting for it to authorize, and redeeming rewards points. We get lazier and lazier, but I must say this sounds convenient, especially on cold winter days.
