Re: Best Gas Card?

my paypal extras card gives 3x points on gas. and if you exchange points for cash back, it works out to 2.5% cash back. if you go with gift cards, i believe you get a full 3%.

Re: Best Gas Card?

PayPal actually work out as 1.8% CB on gas (0.6 * 3). Might be close to 2.5% on gift card. Either way it is not a good card if you want reward. Reward do expire in 2 years.

 

You can get 3.3% CB on gas with BofA if you open a eBanking account too.

where do you get the .6 from for Paypal?   6000 points gets you $50.   So each point is worth 0.0083 cents.  Which works out to 2.5%.     3 x 0.0083 = 0.0249.  or 2.5%.

Re: Best Gas Card?

 

I say go with the BoA 123. I am currently using it for gas because my Discover More and Chase Freedom don't have 5% on gas this quarter. As long as I have one of my cards in rotation getting money back on gas I am a happy camper. Good luck!
