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.

What is the point of doing that? You don't get 5% from the Visa card purchase, and you don't get the 3% cash back from Costco AE purchase on gas. The Costco AE card is free anyway. Confused
The point is some people don't have Amex right now. I am one of them. This still allows you to effectively use a non-Amex CCard to purchase stuff at Costco. IF you used a prepaid Visa, which you got 5% back in points because you bought it at a drugstore this quarter than you will get the 5%. Not to mention if you did go this route and had a big purchase at Costco coming up it's a quick way to liquidate them. Far quicker and easier than buying $1,500 worth of gas gift cards.

I don't want an Amex right now whatsoever because I'm waiting for the next good deal on an Amex and I already have a few cards. Don't need to tack another one on and run the risk of a decline because of too many cards/inquiries in total.

The question is, how do you get a prepaid VISA card at drugstore without activation fee?

$5 fee on $500 ain't gonna kill you Big Grin I'll take a 4% bonus ($20 earning on a $500 prepaid purchase) over a 5% bonus that requires me to sit on gas cards for 6 months which is what this thread started out as. Also, last time I did it for some reason they had these coupons that let you buy them for free. Not sure why they coincided that with the Freedom drugstore quarter but I was more than happy LMAO

It is. I think $1500 may be enough until some other card offers 5% at gas stations (Discover?)
PenFed Platinum Rewards Visa offers 5% on gas all the time with no limit. Anyone can join PenFed after meeting some simple requirements.

Do they have $500 VISA GC there? I usually see $25, $50, and $100 unless they have one without preset value.

You need to learn how to search. Check the search title or first post box.
Here is one with 20% off.
