Re: Best Gas Only Credit Card

Shell Drive for 5 gas hard.    It was first CC besides my Kohls card.

 

 

The Shell card only has a 400 dollar credit line with a high APR of 24.99%.      From what I have been reading it is not a card that will grow with you (I have had the card over a year and I have not gotten a CLI).  I have only been putting 10 dollars on the card in the last couple months for a low utilization percentage. You only get 5cents off per gallon IF you buy 45 gallons or more, I was not willing to have such a high utilization on my card and I honestly dont think I drive enough to buy 45 gallons of gas in a month.

 

I plan on dropping my Shell card as soon as I get approved for that Fort Knox FCU 5% cash back gas card.

Re: Best Gas Only Credit Card

I found the Ft. Knox card alluring when I heard about it.  Now that PenFed is doing less than 1% for regular awards it is even more attractive.

 

I had thought I'd need to get a job at Knox in order to get it, but now I see from their site that you can pay a one time $15 membership fee to join.  It's got me thinking.

Re: Best Gas Only Credit Card

Starting March 3rd, Chase revamps the reward structure and the new reward gets worse. Ultimately, you only get 2.25% back at BP gas, 0.75% back everywhere else. And you can't use your reward rebate as minimum payment or bring your gas refill bill to $0, and the redeemed reward rebate only applies to the first 20 gallons at the pump. Nerdwallet has summed this up if you're interested in reading :smileyhappy:

Only if you want to use BP. My car doesn't run very well on it.
