Most of us set up a separate account just for the TDS withdrawals and only keep a minimum amount of $ as a runung balance

I understand completely.

Here's an alternative to consider, though. I use an account for this that I use for (nearly) nothing else. My plan is to deposit enough in it to pay for the next trip's fuel and otherwise keep a near-minimum balance in it. This way, very little money is at risk. I can transfer money into it on the road, too, which can further limit my risk of loss.

The account I use is an old checking account. With interest being higher for savings and availability of those funds via ATM, and with credit card points to be had, I write *so* few checks that the date field on those I have left reads, "19_____" and the address on them is the pre-E911 address for our house. When I do need to write a check I transfer funds in advance to cover it. It normally sits there with a few hundred bucks in it at most.

I do know some people who fiercely limit the number of accounts they keep, so this might not work for you either.

I just looked at their website. The PenFed card that gives the bonus on fuel purchases is rewards, not cash back. And they don't have any examples of the rewards, to compare them to cash back. In order to look at redemption options, you have to log in. Or that's what I got, anyway.

I just returned from a 4000+ mile trip and used TSD for almost every purchase.
I will also look at gas buddy but I've found the discounts are greater with TSD. The option to set your destination and it will show the lowest price along the route.
I also use a checking account just for paying for fuel. I keep a very small balance when not traveling and add funds as needed. Easy stuff.
