How We Evaluated
I’m a travel writer who has been covering credit cards for the last six years and studying card benefits for many years longer, so I know what benefits travelers need and use. To examine cards for gas purchases, I looked at major credit cards that offer the best returns for purchases made at gas stations. The top cards were chosen based on the value of rewards (both points and perks), fees, and other driving-related benefits. While many of the more well-known credit cards don’t offer great rewards for gas purchases, there are some worthwhile options out there.
Things To Know About Credit Cards
- Most of these cards come with an annual fee, but some cards offer perks each year that are worth more than the fee total. The Citi Premier Card is probably the best example of this.
- APR rates and credit limits vary based on your individual credit. Credit limits and interest rates for each card are determined based on each cardholder's personal situation, so we did not take that information into account when evaluating these cards. One thing to remember is that if you pay your card off in full every month, you will not be charged interest.
- Banks have final say on who they accept for a credit card. These recommendations were put together with the assumption that applicants would have average credit or above. That being said, banks decide who they will issue credit cards to using criteria including, but not always limited to, an individual's credit score when evaluating each applicant.
Please note: The offers mentioned above were valid at time of publication but are subject to change at any time. Some may no longer be available.
