So Chase Freedom quarterly rewards is here and I found a workaround to get 5% cashback on gas at Costco/BJs

On the statement, purchases for Costco/BJ gas pumps count as gas and do not count for the 5% cashback.

However, a gift card purchase counts as an instore purchase and you can get 5% off that. You can just use the gift card at the pump.

There is a stackable deal to this as well with a little bit of a detour

The BJ's in my area renewed the .06 cents off each gallon of gas if a purchase is made in store before going to the pump.

If you purchase a gift card each time before you get gas, it counts as an in store purchase

This promotion is valid until the end of the year which lines up perfectly with the quarterly reward

It is up to you whether you want to walk into the store each time or just buy a big gift card and keep using it at the pump.

Personally I would take the 5 minutes to get the card to get the extra $ off and also not have to worry about losing a large $$$ gift card.

When you do go into the store, make sure you get the regular gift card and NOT the gift card that has a built in membership fee built in.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

I am assuming there are no issues using the gift card at the pumps?

No issues. I believe there is an option when paying for Costco Cash Cards when selecting payment option at the pump.

So I tried this for BJ's Gift Cards and it works.

BJ's is also having a promotion for Gas (at least in my area) where it is .06 cents off each gallon of gas when a purchase is made in store before getting gas.

Apparently a gift card counts as an in store purchase, so stack the .06 cents and 5% cashback. This gas promotion ends on 10/16 I believe.
