Could you elaborate on the Visa/Amex/MC cards? What they look like, etc? I wasn't aware some of these work. If the max is the $100 card then it probably isn't work the $6 fee.
Spend a minute at the gift card display, you'll see them.
The $100 cards are most definitely worth it if you are using a good rewards card like the Amex Blue Cash Preferred. Consider:
Purchase 5 of the $100 for $529.75 including fees. You will have 2120 fuel points. After your Amex BCP cashback your out of pocket is $497.97. Use your fuel points (get all 35 gallons, this is important), and you'll save $70 on gas. You cannot replicate this savings with the variable load Visa/MC/Amex cards.
I wish I live in the states where Kroger is located.
In 1983, The Kroger Company acquired Dillon Companies grocery chain in Kansas along with its subsidiaries, King Soopers, City Market, Fry's, Gerbes, and the convenience store chain Kwik Shop. David Dillon, a fourth-generation descendant of J.S. Dillon, the founder of Dillon Companies, is now the CEO of Kroger. In the late 1990s, Kroger acquired Pay Less Food Markets, Owen's Market, JayC Food Stores, and Hilander Foods. In 1997, Kroger merged with fifth-largest grocery company Fred Meyer along with its subsidiaries, Ralphs, QFC, and Smith's. In 2001, Kroger acquired Baker's from Fleming Companies, Inc. In 2007, Kroger acquired Scott's Food & Pharmacy from SuperValu Inc. In 2011, Kroger sold its Hilander chain to Schnucks.
You can use points at Shell. Max discount is 10c/gallon (on already marked up gas).
Not sure where you saw that... I use at Shell when I rack up 2000 points and I always get $2 discount (upto Dec 2012. After that it is max $1 (1000) discount per transaction).. And gas price in Shell in my area is competitive too..
