It posts after the first statement closes and gets paid.

You sure? My old ABC lags a month behind.

I read the terms and drew my own conclusions based on the fine print. What I am asking for is what you know based on experience.

Which of the following earns 3%?
  • Gas paid for at the pump
  • Gas paid for inside
  • Gas bought from a supermarket (1%, 3%, or 6%?)
  • Other items purchased inside at a gas station (snacks, soda, etc.)
  • Gift cards purchased inside at a gas station (One Vanilla, etc.)

Gas
IDK
Supermarket

Agreed - that would be my best guess

Maybe. Not sure. I wouldn't think cb would be different from the bonus but maybe it is.

After I paid off the first statement the bonus wasn't posting so I called and they told me it would go onto the next statement.

The bonus doesn't come as CB dollars, it just posts as a statement credit.

That is now clear. So it is the same as CB (posting) as RB3 (new nic  :) ) stated.

Gas
IDK                           Anything sold in the gas station would be coded "gas station"
Supermarket
Generic  I disagree:  see my comment above
Generic     "                   "   But you only get 6% on a purchase up to $400 at a gas station: see T& C.

The t&c say you have to buy gasoline, I don't think snacks count.

Most 7-11's are coded on the Visa list as gas stations, and all purchases there come up as gas on Chase's 5x promos.
