For those who live in NY, i bought some shell gas cards at staples and when i filled up at shell i not only did not pay the cc price, but i paid 10 cents less than the cash price.

So save 20 cents/gallon and get 5x points.  that works out to like alot of savings...
Which location?
Any theories why it would be cheaper than cash?

I've actually seen that here at my local Shell too!
No clue why.

they want you to buy gift cards and then have to fill up by them? or could be their cc gives a discount and the gc comes up the same way

Then why is it not advertised anywhere?

Stopped into my local Shell Friday and they informed me that they are only selling their GC's for Cash now.

Hope this isn't going to start happening more and more. Ended up going to a different Shell where they were still swiping.

Bought it from staples on broadway and 234th st in riverdale. I believe almost all staples sell shell cards. I used it at the shell in Brooklyn con CI ave and Ave C or Beverly, as well as the Shell on Mclean ave in Yonkers just off the saw mill river pkwy south. Both locations gave me 10 cents off the cash price.

I saw this

"Get the Cash Discount for Gas While Paying with a Credit Card & Get 5% Cash Back or 5x Points

Well, two nights ago, while paying for gas with the prepaid VISA card I bought from Office Depot, I noticed the Chevron Gift Card near the cash register. Before buying one of them, I confirmed that:

    I could use a credit card to buy them;
    They would give me the cash discount;
    They could be purchased and refilled with any amount.

I used the same prepaid VISA card to buy the Chevron card. Since I have to go inside the store to use my prepaid card anyways, I dont mind this extra step. For those of you who usually go inside the store to pay for your gas or buy something to eat/drink, this might work well for you. By the way, I tested the Chevron gift card at the pump it worked, but did not give me the cash price. Youd have to go inside to get the cash discount.

For those of you who dont get gas from Chevron, here are a few other options:

    Buy a Shell gift card at Office Depot (without being charged any fees);
    See if you can get the Exxon Mobil gift cards with the same method;
    Any other gas gift cards you spot at other office supplies or grocery chains

Walmart has been advertising this for some time now. Their credit cards and MoneyCard gives 15c off, and the gift cards give 10c off.

EDIT: Actually, looks like the promo is over http://news.walmart.com/news-archive/2012/08/29/walmart-pumps-up-savings-on-gas-with-15-cents-per-gallon-discount
could be it was renewed though.

Silly question, but exactly how does this work?

You get a shell or chevron giftcard, and you get a discount when you buy it or when you use it at the gas station?

Thanks

I've been getting automatic 10 cents off per gallon when using the card at the station.
