Would appear Costco and Sam's Club gas stations are excluded. Boooooooo. The next cheapest alternative in So Cal doesn't accept CC (Arco AM/PM) Many other stations charge more for CC and there gas is already way more expensive than Costco / Sam's. Essentially there is no benefit for gas other than some possible no name tier 2 quality gas stations. Screw that Chase!

Discover also excludes Sam's gas stations for some reason.

Sam's has qualified for 5% back in the past for me... perhaps it won't this time around?

I have seen Arco accept credit, depends on the station. but they charge a higher price for credit.....

US Bank doesn't view Cricket Wireless is wireless provider which I thought was bizarre, missed Target Cricket 10% deals too. This deal has Cricket!
I've found a weird niche of US Bank gives me 5% on Utilities-Arcadia Power which is a middleman in my gas & electric.
Will miss that savings niche when this dumb solar co-op, I should have never signed up for, actually gets built as that is only saving me an extra $5/mo for 25years when everything is accounted for...

Fake news. Why would you say that? Chase Freedom for the past number of years has had gas as a bonus category in both the 1st and 3rd quarters and Costco gas has ALWAYS qualified for the extra 4% bonus. Please get your facts right genius.
It does say Warehouse stores are Excluded!

No sorry that's a different program. They don't have 5% categories quarterly.
