Only about 2 more weeks before I go on my spree. I shop heavily at Costco and I rarely get gas from anywhere else unless I am close to an empty tank and there is no Costco nearby. I am very picky with places where I get gas from due to getting bad gas in the past...so I really dont want to get gas anywhere else. If I do, it has to be BP or Exxon or others that I trust. I will be apping for Sallie Mae and thats where the dilema comes in. I will likely have to stray from Costco gas because a) Sallie Mae gives 5% back up to $250 and b) $250 is about the max I spend anyway because I have a company vehicle...so my personal I dont have to fill up but 4x max per month.
The thing is, Costco ALWAYS has the lowest price on gas in my area. There is never a day where anyone else has it for less.
Guess this is one of those good problems.
I will likely be apping for Fidelity AMEX...but it will be one of the last on my spree list.
I just joined Coastal Federal and I am interested in their products. I am considering a mortgage loan from them and 2 products with them gives me VIP benefits. So a mortgage and one of their credit cards will do that. The Big Ticket card has 0% for 6 months on purchase over $600 and their Cash Back card has 3% on gas, 2% on groceries, and 1% on everything else. I asked the associate to verify and he didnt seem too sure but couldnt find any info stating otherwise that the cash back card has no caps.
