I guess that the PenFed web site is lacking quite a bit in complete information. Sorry!

Yup, VISA cards are the same as cash, I agree.

Now can you tell me how many points does it take to receive a $100 VISA card, 2000 points or significantly more?

With the Sam's Club MasterCard for every $2000 spent on fuel, I get back $100.

Penfed cash back Visa gives me 5% rebate automatically every month credited to my bill for gas that I pay at the pump. Now Costco just switched to Visa, AND they let you use ANY visa card at their gas pump...so you get the lower Costco pump price, PLUS 5% rebate from Penfed...you can't beat it.

For all my other charges I use either my Capital One Quicksilver MC or my USAA Visa...each give me 1.5% back on every purchase. I just had to spend $10K on repairs...1.5% was a very nice rebate.

I've had the PenFed card for years and years. It is the best deal out there for gas purchases.

the BEST way: hope that diesel prices stay low!
... as compared to several years ago when pricing was near $4 or more, we are living in the lap of luxury!

I use the app GasBuddy/FuelBuddy to scout out potential pricing on my next route

I use my Wmt CC, which gives a additional 1% rebate(i.e. 2 cents), as a credit on your account
I use MurphyUSA/Walmart stations whenever it makes sense, since they give a 2% credit(i.e. 4 cents) when ALSO using their Wmt CC

: ) I never use truc k stops, they are too expensive no matter what credit or discount you are given

Hopefully not too of base on this topic. I like to accumulate and use flying miles at 1.25 miles per dollar. seems to me i get more return this way than the 4% back per gallon on the gas card. Which is better return?

...why would you comment on this as though it is someone's 'biggest worry'? It's just a question someone posed, though I think it might also be an indicator of how those of us who 'drive around in a class A DP' got here in the first place!

no worries

I like the pump start with Pilot CC at truck pumps. In and out quick. No hassle.
