Costs nothing for the Amex and had to get one for a different job but wished we done so earlier.

Last year cash back was about $150.00 ish as we try to use the card for everything we can.

That us free money!

April 1 this year is the date AE looses it's exclusivity at Costco. You can use a debit/ATM card at their pump, or as I do, just buy a Costco Cash Card and use that at their pump too. Of course you don't get the 3% that you do with the AE Card.

Last week I paid $1.669/gal for the 87 octane unleaded. Usually $0.04 to $0.15 per gal lower than area fuel stations.

I guess it is good if there is a Costco that is convenient for you. But most Costcos are not located at a major highway intersection like the truck stops are, and if you have a big rig like I do they may be hard to get in and out of. One fender-bender at the pumps can negate a lot of fuel savings. Unless I have intimate knowledge of a Costco layout, I'll stick with truck stops.

I've done the math. I don't break even with premium membership and AMEX until Costco fueling stations have more diesel locations. Until then,, I piggyback my membership on a friend's account, save big bucks. There is no 2% back on gas with the premium membership, only with the current Costco approved and supported credit card, which is going to change soon.

In many areas, there are stations that are willing to compete with Costco on gas prices. I'm hoping they will do the same with diesel. Good prices are easy to confirm if you do a little poking around on the internet or just call a couple of stations, and sometimes Costco is not the cheapest or the easiest option. Most of the time if you can get away from the major highway intersection about a mile, the prices drop.

April 1, the CostCo sponsored credit card (was AmEx) will become a CitiGroup Visa:
What to expect from Costco’s new deal with Visa and Citi - San Antonio Express-News

You still must get the CostCo membership (separate) but these cards afford a second level of savings with cash back awards. It pays for itself, for us.

Safe travels

Hoping our new Costco has diesel pumps.

California does not have a mandate for biodiesel.

Costco pumps

We have a 37 foot class A with a 18 foot trailer on it and have never had a bit of trouble getting up to the pumps at any location. I do like it when the guy with the car pulls up behind us when he see's that big camper and wants to know why it's taking us so long to load up 80 gallons of fuel. take your time and if not sure get out and look around the pumps to make sure you can make it. It's your dime spend it the way you want they just have to wait to spend theirs.
