Yes, you can use the Visa cc at the Sam Gas Station only but not inside the store. Inside the store you can use Discover or I think Mastercard also.
Do you still get the 5% reward?
"I have a dream. We got a nightmare." "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan"."We're gonna work to lower your premiums by up to $2,500 per family." (WHERE?/WHEN?) "What is a low information voter?" "For the First Time in My Adult Lifetime, I’m NOT Really Proud of My Adopted Country”. I am not Rush'ed into judgement. If we don't do handout for stamps, the Post Office might still be in business!
First quarter 2013 we have the 5% bonus cash back off of gas purchases with our card.
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.
First off, that doesn't always work as some treat it as a convenience store purchase. Second, not all gas stations will allow you to buy a GC with a credit card.
Third, for a considerably easier method you can walk in to a drugstore and purchase those $500 prepaid cards for $5.
You can't use Visa credit cards (Freedom) on either Sams or Costco. Discover and Amex respectively.
FYI - A way around this is to use your Visa to buy a Costco cash card on-line. I no longer have an Amex and found this to be a good way to still buy stuff in-store against a CCard of sorts.
