Oh, one more (STUPID) question, but... whenever I see that you get cashback on spending on gas, that does just mean 'spending done at gas stations', right, or do the CCCs have some cunning way of knowing when you bought gas and when you bought a six pack and some Doritos? I'm sure we could make a (very) small fortune if all my husband's daily purchases of Red Bull and Starbucks Espresso Shots at Speedway qualify as 'gas'!

The answer depends on the card in question, and how the category is defined in the rewards literature.Some cards give bonuses on "gas purchases at the pump," which includes only, well, gas purchases at the pump. Others give bonuses on gas station purchases, which would also include the six pack and Doritos you mentioned, although it would not include purchases at a Starbucks inside a gas station, since those purchases would show as Starbucks.Which card is this?Edit: Duh. Obviously you're asking about the Blue Cash card. Blue Cash includes all gas station purchases in its bonus categories, not just purchases of actual gasoline.You are aware of the spending requirement on Blue Cash to get to the higher tier, though, right?

There's a Subway inside one of the gas stations I go to. I choose to go there because I am getting my bonus cash rebate off of that sub and I am loving it! So yes, anything you purchase at the gas station, whether it be gas or merchandise, will count towards your bonus.
