GasBuddy recently added a 'deal alerts' feature that will inform users of reduced gas prices. The feature displays prices in a location display so users know what deals are closest to them. The deal alerts feature can also be customized due to the brand's partnerships with fuel companies that may want to reduce prices to increase their customer base. Additionally, Gas Buddy offered a $5 credit to the first 10,000 users who signed up for the service.
Overall the new features could be popular with price-sensitive consumers who want to be informed about potential gas deals in their area. Additionally offering credits could entice users who may not have otherwise decided to use the GasBuddy platform.
