Earn Money While Snacking on Buc-ee’s
The Buc-ee’s franchise has taken the country by storm for the past few years. Most of you probably don’t need much incentive to stop and grab some Beaver Nuggets or a barbecue sandwich. However, FinanceBuzz is doing precisely that.
They’re selecting one lucky and hungry traveler to try 25 of Buc-ee’s most popular food items. To sweeten the deal, they’re paying this person $1,000. In addition, they’ll supply them with $250 to cover expenses for food and gas and to buy some Beaver-themed merchandise.
The catch is that you’ll write product reviews, take photos, and document your experience for FinanceBuzz.
They’re taking applications for the position until Sept. 11, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern. Once their experts review the applications, they expect to select the individual within a week.
However, before you drop everything and apply, there are some essential things you need to know. Let’s look at FinanceBuzz and a few more details about the contest.

Why Will They Pay You to Eat Buc-ee’s Snacks?
FinanceBuzz wants to help everyone, including travelers, make the most of their money.
They’re realistic and understand that most travelers don’t have the funds to try every snack at Buc-ee’s. FinanceBuzz has found a way to help consumers avoid wasting their money on overrated food items.
If you’re selected, they’ll take your research and use it to help educate their audience. They’ll share your insights on what’s hot and what’s not at this popular convenience store. The result will be informed buyers not wasting their hard-earned money.
However, don’t think this task is a walk in the park. What you have to do is not easy and will require some effort.
What You Have to Do
The individual selected must live near or be willing to travel to a Buc-ee’s location.
In addition, the person must be ready to taste various products from the popular beaver-loving convenience store chain. A handful of these items include Hippo tacos, Barbecue sandwiches, homemade fudge, and so much more.
Don’t worry, FinanceBuzz will provide a shopping list, so you know what to buy. In addition, they give you the freedom to make some executive decisions and try additional items. While tasting the foods, you’ll take notes and pictures to help write product reviews for each item.
What Is Buc-ee’s?
If you’ve never heard of Buc-ee’s, you’re missing out. At last count, there were 45 Buc-ee’s locations, predominantly in Texas and throughout the south. However, they’re expanding quickly and regularly adding new locations.
This Texas-based convenience store started in 1982 in Lake Jackson, Texas. However, after operating for almost three decades, they built their first location outside the Lone Star State.
You can find a store in Alabama, Florida, Ohio, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas. However, as we said, they’re expanding quickly, and you never know where the next one will pop up.
It’s important to note that Buc-ee’s is different from your typical convenience store.
They have over a hundred fuel pumps, 50 bathroom stalls, and more snacks than your taste buds can handle. Their branding is on point with consumers, and they’ve quickly become the trendiest spot to stop while road-tripping.
Reasons to Visit Buc-ee’s
Even if you’re not selected for the $1,000 taste test, you’ll find plenty of reasons to visit Buc-ee’s. Here are a few reasons we stop at Buc-ee’s whenever we can.
How many convenience stores have you visited that have award-winning bathrooms? Probably very few. In 2012, Cintas crowned these glorious bathrooms “America’s Best Restroom.” The New Braunfels, Texas, location has 83 stalls awaiting customers. These facilities are massive and immaculate.
Buc-ee’s takes pride in keeping their stuff clean. You don’t have to worry about walking into a sketchy bathroom stall when you visit their locations. Answer nature’s call without feeling like you’re gambling with your health or personal safety.
Tons of Fuel Stations
There’s nothing worse than your fuel gauge sitting on E and waiting in line to fill up your tank.
However, because many of their locations have more than 100 fuel stations, it’s not something you have to worry about. You’ll be in and out in no time!
Do lines form at their pumps? Absolutely. We’ve visited Buc-ee’s multiple times to get fuel and never had to wait for more than one other vehicle. However, they were nothing compared to some of the lines at their competitors.
Keep in Mind: Have you heard? Buc-ee’s recently opened the biggest gas station in the United States!
Another thing that Buc-ee’s does well is offer delicious snack options. Some of the most popular ones are their beaver nuggets, roasted nuts, breakfast tacos, and beef jerky. However, like college football and barbecue in Texas, Buc-ee’s takes beef jerky seriously.
It’s one of the few places we’ve seen offering an entire beef jerky counter. You can get flavors like turkey jerky, garlic turkey, and ghost pepper.
However, regular jerky is also available for those who prefer a more traditional taste. Since they sell it by the pound, you can buy as much or as little as you like.
One of the first things you discover when you walk into a Buc-ee’s location is plenty of souvenirs. You can find their iconic beaver on just about anything you can imagine. Everything from onesie pajama sets to shot glasses.
In addition, they have a decent selection of home goods and decorations. Luckily, they tone down the beavers on these items.
A quick stop at Buc-ee’s can be a great place to get gifts and souvenirs. Whether you want to remember your trip or give someone something special, you can find it here.

Snap a Picture with the Beaver
Where else can you get your picture with a giant statue of a beaver? Buc-ee’s stops have a bronze statue of their mascot, Bucky. It’s the perfect spot to pose for those Instagram-worthy pictures.
Show off your new beaver-themed swag or the snacks you bought for the road. Remember to tag the official Buc-ee’s locations. They have a reputation for sharing some of their favorites with their massive audience.
