I just got a "76" card.. I'm not full time or diesel.. Just want something other than 7-11, wally mart, costco, safeway, etc gas...

Been noticing that their prices are not all that much lower?

I see 76 stations (on average) at least .30 lower than the shells, cheverons, etc...

I really only go to shell, chevron otherwise and get a .10 off of the pump and .04 on the bill.. Same deal with 76, but they all seem to be .30 lower off the bat, so....

Also, the F150 is parked in the garage and only used to tow... Daily grind is now in the 2014 Ford Escape "Titanium" 2.0 EcoBoost... [emoticon] Love it for day to day..

I do miss driving the truck daily. But, $100 fill up compared to $50 fill ups for the same miles is helping a TON! [emoticon]

Camping... Well, that's just the cost of it now.. So I deal with it and don't worry about it, 'cause I ain't not going camping to save a few $$

To buy gas I use my GS card in combination with my Visa card which gives 5% cash back. So at $4.00 a gallon for gas I save $.25, pay $3.75
I understand that if you get a Pilot/Flying J credit card you might save more.

Good Sam Pilot/Flying J cards offer one to three cents per gallon depending on the station. And in many stations, we could not get the card to work. Cut it into little pieces. Chuck

You're in Florida, so I'll bet you shop Publix, at least occasionally.

When Publix has gas card weekends, they offer $50 gas cards for $40 with a minimum $50 grocery purchase. That's a 20% savings --- with gas at $5.00 per gallon, that equates to about $1.00 per gallon discount.

We buy BOGO's (which also count towards your $50 minimum purchase), and it ends up being a win-win. You've got to be a savvy shopper to get deals at Publix, because yes, on many items they are the higher-priced alternative to other stores.

You can actually purchase one card for each $50 spent, so if you tally up $100, you can buy two cards, and so on.

In our area the 3 main gas cards they sell are Shell, Mobil, and RaceTrac.

For gas I use Pentagon Federal Credit Union VISA card which gives me 5% cashback on fuel purchases, comes off the monthly statement (I don't think this card is available any longer). For diesel I use a fuel card from TSD Logistics. This provides discounts at the pump in the truck fueling lanes. Participating stations can change with time. I've found best discount at T/A stations. Funds must be drawn from checking or savings account. If I can't find a discount station I use my PFCU Visa.


x2 on the pen fed. No limit on annual purchases, no limits on gallons per fillup, credit at the end of the month, works for gas or diesel (some cards don't work on diesel purchases). Couple that with Kroger/Safeway/Albertson fuel points. We often do our shopping when they offer double fuel points for certain days and will buy gift cards that give 4X fuel point on cards good at places we normally shop anyway.

Downside of safeway/albertsons is the limt is 25 gallons, while Kroger allows 35 gallons on the purchase.

X3 on the PenFed Visa cash rewards card and the 5% rebate. Combined with my GS Swipe and Save card that saves me 5 cents a gallon at Pilot/Flying J stations, it all adds up to about 24 cents a gallon off at the $5/gallon gas price in our current area.

Yep. Wife gets those every chance she can. But we can't shop at Publix while driving around the country. Chuck

As to the PenFed card, I have already applied for and been approved for (took 5 minutes) a Wells Fargo visa that offers the same cash back and same terms as the PenFed card. So they would be redundant. Chuck

If BOA gave me 100% cash back I would not do business with them. Chuck
