Thread Details

First quarter 2013 we have the 5% bonus cash back off of gas purchases with our card.
https://creditcards.chase.com/fre...ivate.aspx

You can prolong the 5% by walking inside the gas station, and if they offer their brand gas gift cards, buy them. It has been confirmed by Chase that you will get the 5% extra when purchasing a gift card inside the store.

You also get extra savings when using your gift card at the pumps or inside as they count as non-credit card transactions so you'd get the cash price on the gas per gallon.

I usually buy a good size $ gas gift card when the quarter is about over so I can continue to reap the rewards after the expiration of the extra bonus.

Just a reminder of what has always worked for me.

What I did to confirm is after purchasing my gift card, I'd call Chase customer service and they can confirm your % cash back with that particular transaction. There's never been an issue when it wasn't 5%.

Also if you have a BI-LO near you and use BI-LO Perks, this helps to use along with your BI-LO gas perks at the pump.

Remember that you only get 1500 per category per qt

It is not 1500 per category per quarter....It is 1500 per quarter spent across the respective categories. (edited on 03/30/2013)

I havent been able to find which gas stations offer gift cards. I'd love to get Chevron cards if they have. Do you know if they have?

Just go inside the station that you usually use and ask if they offer gift cards. Pretty much only way to find out.

I usually use Spinx since that's where I can redeem my BI-LO fuel perks and they offer gift cards. Also I know BP offers cards inside their stations.

I bought a Chevron gas card for secret santa this past December, I was able to choose the amount.
Some Arco's have gas cards, but the price is set to what is printed on the card.

Thanks OP, this is a smart idea. So, 5% back on what ever you purchase at a gas station.

Don't forget to do the same thing at drugstore (it is 5% cash back this quarter) - purchase grocery store, departmental store, etc. gift cards to get 5% point. Virtually get almost all gift cards where I do regular shopping...

Hmm, and if they say no? You have a bunch of gas gift cards with worse CB than offered on other CC's.

This is much easier. Just go to your local CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, etc and buy $1,500 of gift cards for gas stations, etc.

Thanks for the reminder. I almost forgot that drugstores are included this quarter. I will make sure I stop by and get a grocery gift card before my next grocer visit.

True but if drugstores aren't in the same quarter as gas cards, gas cards bought at gas stations, you will always get the 5%. Pretty much a given.

5% is better than going to Costco or Sams club. Stock up.

Isn't the quarterly 5% capped at a spending of $1500?

This quarter is Gas + DrugStores I think

It is. I think $1500 may be enough until some other card offers 5% at gas stations (Discover?)

You can't use Visa credit cards (Freedom) on either Sams or Costco. Discover and Amex respectively.
