What card do you use for gas ??

With gas prices being what they are these days it's a great way to rack up points and rewards.

It's a constant purchase , in my case close to $250-300 a week, so it's actually my most consistent rewarder.

I use my PenFed Visa Platinum w/ 5% back almost exclusively.

It's great logging on and seeing those red numbers on the transaction list.

Re: What card do you use for gas ??

I would love to use the one you keep bragging about, but DW might hit you upside the head with a cast iron frying pan should I become an AU. Not to mention that'll be something you would NEVER EVER forget, or would you!? Hahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

One of my CU CCs has something called CURewards. It's not a cash back card, but I do earn points for merchandise purchases and travel. I love to travel so it comes in handy. Unfortunately, my CL is pennies at the moment so I can't fully utilize the CC as I would like.

But, I do want a gas card. Just don't want to make the mistake of app'ing for one that "supposedly" is BK-friendly and get another denial. I don't know how much more my heart can take of bad advice!!

I don't drive too much, nor too far, unless I am doing treatments in Houston. That is almost 180 miles one way and  adds up fast. (Only once every 21 days, though)
 
I have to go with Discover since the 5% CB on gasoline is this quarter.
 
Otherwise, the 2% CB Orchard.
 
I WISH penfed would let me, but I am no where near their radar just yet. Wayy too many new accounts.

I didn't realize Discover does 5% back. That's a good deal.

What do you mean by this quarter ???

I actually think I got lucky with PenFed. They were one of the first I app'ed for after coming to these boards. I didn't even know about 'pyramiding'. So just by happen chance I applied for them first.
