Freedom wont work, i will be spending 1500 in less than a week- also i cannot get the freedom card, i was declined due to having too many chase cards

Did you try the recon dept? ever offered them to close a different card and shift some credit over?

So using the ink can be better bonuses than the 2 percent rebate from mobil?

Yes, but it will be a big hassle, and you need to have an OD store nearby with cards in stock.

Rather not- forget about the hassle its better for me to keep track of all of the drivers spending and make sure they are not using it for personal use. Thanks anyways

Wow, that is much less than I imagined. I thought we were looking somewhere at $50k. (10 drivers, each one with a school bus etc..)

In any case, there are Amex and Chase cards that offer 2x points for gas. 2 Amex or Chase points are worth around 3 cents. So apparently, even using the Ink cards straight at the gas station is a better cash back option than the mobil 2% card, unless you are going to hit 10k per month, in which case, the Mobile card might be better.

Well, then I assume you are hitting at least 10k per month in gas. Isn't the Mobil card offering 5% rebate on that?

AFAIK amex is the only card that officially requires you to add the AU's ss.
