Diesel Credit Card Savings?

We plan on taking a trip this summer South Carolina to California and back then up the East coast and back home; we should burn a whole bunch of diesel. Is there a gas/credit card out there that would save us some money? Which one is the best and where do you have to use it. Any little bit helps! Thanks

I'd be interested in knowing also. Most cards I know of are for specific brands which you will not find coast to coast. Plus they are usually temporary, like for first 90 days etc.

If anyone knows of a card that gives around 5% back on all gas purchases I'd like to know also.

Besides that I just use the good ol Tommy Tutone discount which usually saves me at minimum $.20 per fill up

Isn't the problem that the credit cards only allow about $95-100 max...unless you get the Flying J credit card. And then do they give you a discount for using credit. I am missing something here. I thought the only good discount is cash????

My Visa through my Credit Union returns 1% of purchases each qtr. I recently signed up for Amazon Visa which returns 2% for fuel. You might look at whose cc returns the most bang for your buck, other wise as mentioned cash talks better on instant discounts as far as I know.

We have belonged to the Pilot/Flying J RV Plus program for years. As I recall, the final price came out to 6 cents lower than posted cash price. For complete information go to www.rvpluscard.com or call (855) 478-7587. You might find cheaper diesel at a convienence store but the ease of fueling at Pilot of Flying J makes all the difference in the world to me.

PenFed, YES!! I have the card that gives cash back at 5% of the gas/diesel purchase price. I'm on my second $500 refund. Hate to think how many gallons that was but must have been fun. You don't have to be a veteran or in the military to join PenFed (Pentagon Federal) credit union but you do have to join to get the PenFed rewards cards.

Pilot card provides 6 cents off for GS Card and 8 cents off for GS Life Members. This is in addition to the discounted "cash per gal" price at Pilot and Fly. J's. Only drawback is that Pilot is normally above local stations fuel prices, but generally the same as other truck outlets --Loves/TA/Petro, etc. They're statements, documentation, and notification of pending payment is excellent. Ours closes out on the 11th and billing is on 26th of same month. Hope this helps.

If you're a lifetime GS member you get 8 a gallon off. Problem is they're usually 10 to 15 a gallon more than local stations and, unless you sign up for autopay you're limited to $1,000 a month. If you allow access to your account it's $2,000. In two weeks we used up the $1,000 limit and used cash from then on.

If you want to figure the 5% credit card discount with diesel averaging $4 you would be saving .20 cents per gallon. That's a lot better than Flying J or any other fuel card discount that I know of. Plus you have the freedom to fill up where the price is less.

My credit card company gives 5% cash back during select months each year that include fuel purchases.

Dave, Sounds like we may use the same card. I have the Chase Freedom Visa which has a 5% cash-back on the first $1500 in fuel cost in select quarters (2 qtrs / yr) plus 1% on all else. It would be nice to have something better. The Flying J card we use is just an RV Value card that gives us an additional few cents per gal discount plus some other benefits at Piolt/Flying J stations. Since we appreciate the convenience of the Flying Js we frequent them every chance we get.

PenFed as others have commented. $15 to join if you are not Military, Federal worker, etc. 5% credit on the statement each month for fuel paid at the pump.
