Have you heard about MurPay? It’s a new service offered by Murphy USA so you can pay at the pump by texting! I also helps you get the best gas price of the day, regardless of what the rates are at the pump.
To sign up with MurPay, all you need is a checking account number and a smartphone. Sign up here and within a couple of days you are well on your way to simplifying your gasoline purchases.
What’s AWESOME about Murpay is that it’s a great way to manage the family expenses. You can set up your account, as well as sub-accounts for every other driver in the household to use.
But here’s the great part: You can set up restrictions to prevent members of the family from purchasing certain items using Murpay – everything from food to lottery tickets and tobacco products. It helps put you in control of your family’s expenses at the gas station for once! What a great idea for college students, too.
Murpay is still being rolled out in Murphy USA stations, so if you get to the pump and need help using it for the first time, ask the attendant to help you. I can’t wait until it’s completely available in my area. It will be an -excellent- way for me to keep track of my own gasoline purchases as an individual – and much easier than having to sift through my bank account statements or receipts!
One thing I am concerned about is that I’m still not too sure if you will get the better discount using MurPay or using a Walmart Gift Card or Moneycard.
I think as more people start using it, though, people will be able to see if it helps their wallets at the pump!
