This would probably even better than paying cash, especially if you still get your receptive points.

just read up a bit, and it says it will be a statement credit. seems like we can get 2x points and the 5 percent. Ill try it out and let ya guys know. $1 at bp here i come. If it does, thats about 8 percent back (5 cents +2 points at 1.5 each)
My Programs Are Listed So That I Don't Forget Them :)

Even the 5% back usually pays, because the credit is usually about 10 cents more expensive, tops - and with gas at 3.50, give or take, 5% is over 17 cents.

Personally, I just used my Chase Freedom at Kohl's to stock up on BP gift cards, at 5% back. Then I get the cash price at BP pumps.

Actually, you should be getting an additional 5% Kohl's bonus.
Which Kohl's had BP gas cards in stock?

Do all bp's give the cash price for gift cards?

Officially, it is up to the individual station but I have yet to find one that does not. (The BP's in Lakewood and the 35 before the 9 definitely give the cash price.)

Now I dont know if I should use this or my freedom card in january when filling up gas.  The 5% bonus on freedom is better but I dont know if I will hit the $1500 maximum between gas and amazon in the 1st quarter.

Actually, I think that's official.

I would, but I'm already over $1500 for the quarter, especially after my yeshiva donation (although i have to check that it went through, and wasn't considered a school, which would be excluded).

Kohl's in staten island had GCs. I'm sure they've restocked since I was there.

Regular quarterly promo sign-up will give you bonus 5% CB @ Kohl's. I don't know about online.
