I just learned of this awesome new way to pay for gasoline at the pump via text! I saved $6 today on just an 8 gal fillup! And, I can’t even begin to tell you how much of a lifesaver I know this will be for me. Too many times, I’ve pulled up to the pump and either saw their credit card scanner was out of order with a sign saying “Please Pay Inside” … not fun when you have an infant with you and it’s raining or snowing. Or, I’ve pulled up to the pump only to realize my debit or credit card was still sitting back home on my dresser! The one thing I always have with me? My smartphone! Seriously, I never go anywhere with it, it has replaced so many other gadgets or methods for keeping my life scheduled. Now, it can replace my credit card AND save me money at the pump when I visit Murphy USA to fill up, too!
(Quick note: you can use any phone with texting capabilities to utilize this service – you do not have to have a smartphone.)
Why should I use MurPay?
MurPay offers a convenience no other gas station does. You can pay for your gas at the pump or products inside the Murphy USA store. You can set up account limits for each account or sub-account. For example, if you have a driving teen, you may want to create a sub-account and authorize a daily or monthly limit to how much he/she can spend on gas and snacks or choose the “gas only” option so he/she can not use it for any other purchases. This gives you complete control over what is purchased through your account and how much is spent. Check out the screen shot below to see the Product Restrictions you can apply:
How does it save me money at the pump?
When you use MurPay to buy gas, the price of the gasoline will roll back to the lowest price of the last 24 hours! With gas prices rising, we all know that every penny counts when it comes to a gallon of gasoline and we all want to make sure we’re getting the best price possible! MurPay makes that easy!
Sounds great! How do I get started?
1. Create your account with Murphy USA Online. You’ll receive a welcome message when you successfully verify your account information:
After you’ve linked your new MurPay account to your checking account, you can pay at the pump just by texting the amount you want to authorize to MurPay (304050). You’ll immediately receive a text back along with your verification code.
You’ll also be able to view the authorization in your account online:
You’ll use that code along with your customer verification number (you choose your CVN during the account registration) to purchase your fuel! If your actual purchase is less than the amount you authorized, your bank account will be debited ONLY by the exact purchase amount – NOT the authorized amount.
And here’s the best part… when you pay with MurPay, you’ll get the lowest price of the last 24 hours! Here’s a quick video of my 8yr old son using MurPay at the pump for the very first time so you can see just how easy it is!
This was, in fact, the first time either of us had used MurPay and I moved the camera over to the prices on the pump too late to catch the change in price but by using MurPay I paid $3.089 instead of $3.839! That’s a 75¢ PER GALLON savings! I bought just a little over 8 gallons of gasoline with $25 which means I saved just over $6 on this fill up alone. Now imagine if you used MurPay for EVERY fill up! The savings will add up quickly!
In summary: MurPay allows you :
- Convenience – no need to have your check book or debit card with you!
- to have Full control over how much your sub-account users are spending and on what products
- to Save money – Get the best gas price from the last 24 hours
And, if you have an iPhone or Droid, you can download the FREE app for even more features such as finding the nearest Murphy USA, comparing prices with other nearby gas stations and an easy to use interface to track your mileage and and mpg!

So, sign up today, then browse around the site and decide whether MurPay is for you – I think it will be!
