Fuel Lock: The Gas Saving Secret 7-Eleven Doesn’t Want You to Know About
Fuel Lock savings and free Slurpees at 7-Eleven

If you live in one of the test markets (or Australia, apparently), the 7-Eleven app has a new Fuel Lock feature.
In some markets, Fuel Lock will guarantee the lowest gas price in your area for four days at any participating 7-Eleven.
To be fair, 7-Eleven probably wants Rewards members in their test markets to know about this, and they just haven’t publicly announced any rollout details in the U.S.
And since gas prices are unstable, any amount of savings or stability is welcome. The national average was $4.75 on July 7, 2022.
Can I Use Fuel Lock at My 7-Eleven?
That’s a great question. Fuel Lock is a cool feature, but we’ve only been able to find it in the Dallas-Forth Worth area, which 7-Eleven calls home. And again, Australia — for whatever reason.
To find out if it’s available to you, follow these steps:
- Download the 7-Eleven Rewards & Shopping app on the Google or Apple app store.
- Open your 7-Eleven Rewards & Shopping app (sign up if new).
- Navigate to the fuel tab.
- The Price Lock button should be beneath your available savings summary (if available in your area).
If you’re able to use this feature and live outside the Dallas-Forth Worth metro area, reach out to let us know so we can update this post.
Even if you can’t lock in fuel savings in your area yes, you can still save. With the rewards app, you’ll get 11 cents knocked off each gallon for your first 7 trips (get it?). And then you’ll get a 3-cent-per-gallon discount every time you fill up at 7Eleven after that.
Did You Say Free Slurpee?
Whether you can lock in your fuel price or not, the 7-Eleven app is worth having this month simply for the free Slurpees.
The rewards app gives users points for every purchase — and with gas prices at all-time highs, those points stack up fast. With 10 points for every dollar spent and 5X points when you pay through the app, you’ll get enough points for a free medium slurpee every time you get gas.
