Cash back at gas stations

Discover openly advertises that we can get cash back for purchases inside the gas station.  Is the same true for Penfed and Chase freedom?

I don't believe so on the Chase Freedom, not sure about the PenFed card.

I actually tried it last month with my Chase Freedom (purchased $141 in gas, and then purchased two $25 shell gift cards). Cheked my UR points and it included points for the whole purchase! Smiley Happy

Re: Cash back at gas stations

Yes, on Freedom as long as you buy gas with it you are fine even inside, inside or outside you get 5 % if they have it for that quarter.

Penfed you have to pay at the pump outside to get 5%.
