BoA Gas Rewards

I recently got the 123 cash rewards from BoA and I was wondering if the 3% cash back applies to service done at gas stations as well. I typically get my car repaired by a local mechanic at a Shell station and it would be great if I got 3% back on my service bill.

as long as the charge on your card comes from Shell and not another company operating within the Shell station you went to then i dont see why you wouldnt get the cash back. I go to the sunoco across from my work to buy cokes and i get the cash back So it doesnt matter what you purchase as long as it is coded with the gas stations name on it then you should be good.

You would not get the 3% because, the card must be used at the pump, and it must post as an Automated Fuel Dispenser.

then how come they give me 3% cash back when i go inside the gas station to buy cokes? I buy 2 cokes at a total of $4 and i recieve about 12 cents cash back for that which is 3%.

I don't know YMMV, but whenever I go inside at a shell or any other gas station it posts to my BofA as Gas Station Ancilliary Services, and I only get 1% back.
