AMEX Costco TrueEarnings: cashback on gas, in case you didn't know

AMEX Costco TrueEarnings

3% cash back on gasoline at U.S. stand-alone gas stations, including at Costco, for purchases up to $4,000 per year (1% thereafter)

$4000 x 3% = $120 annual maximum 3% cash back for gas purchases (1% cash back above $4000)

 

AMEX Costco TrueEarnings Business

4% cash back on gasoline at U.S. stand-alone gas stations, including at Costco, for purchases up to $7,000 per year (1% thereafter)

$7000 x 4% = $280 annual maximum 4% cash back for gas purchases (1% cash back above $7000)

 

Reviewed my year-to-date spending by category on the American Express site. Gas purchases = $4025. Was planning to change cards for the remainder of the year to maximize my cash back when I realized the Business card has a higher cap.

Though I've been a member for 2 1/2 years, I just noticed the different caps today. Figured I would post this, in case someone else finds it useful.

I used my Gas at Walmart and they offer like 0.15 off per gallon. I get 5% off $100 dollars at Walmart participate Gas Station.
Temp to apps for Amex TU in the future but I guess Walmart can do for gas and BCE goes for grocery so I pass ;(
