Oklahoma of Chicago, Illinois used coupons instead of stamps
Lone Star of Chicago, Illinois
Note that Oklahoma also lists there Road King stations another Chicago area discounter.

I find that gas station trading stamps were used more in the mid-west than other areas..

I am sure there are numerous other brands, dealers, jobbers, distributors that had stamp programs.

That all folks,

Dave

Dave, I had no idea of the extent that these stamps and coupons existed. This has been very informative and educational. Thanks very much for sharing these!


Regards, Jim

I collect gas pump salt and pepper shakers
and the plastic coin banks both made by AVSCO.

Dave;
Nice collection, didn't realize you had THAT many. I have two Blue and one Red GasTown books.
See the note in the back of the Red one. Mine only have Red and Blue stamps, not the other colors mentioned.
Note it also has Dates.

Here is a scan of my 1953 Mars Gas Saving Stamps booklet. Mars was based in the St. Louis, Missouri area. If you see any Mars stuff, please let me know by PM or email.

While we're stuck at home because of the coronavirus restrictions, I'm organizing some of my collection that hasn't seen the light of day in years. I think I have other gas station stamp books somewhere. I'm enjoying this and will probably post scans and photos as well as hang some items up on the wall if I can find the space. wink

Here is my Zephyr Gas "Profit Sharing" stamp book. The book says you get a stamp for each 25 cents you spend. There are 140 stamps in the book ($35 spent), worth "$1.15 in Trade." That may not seem like much, but it is a better return than most of the current "reward card" credit card points deals.
This Zephyr is a brand from J.D. Streett with a home office in St. Louis, MO.
