Best Credit Cards for Gas

Pam

Can you believe the costs of gas? If we have to pay a lot to use our cars, let’s at least get rewarded for it! Here are the best credit cards to use when paying for gas!

Citi Premier Card

The Citi Premier Credit Card is a transferable points card that earns ThankYou points. We love transferable points. This is one of the best credit cards for gas as it earns a whopping 3 points per dollar spent. There are many ways to use ThankYou points and you get 60K as a welcome offer when you meet the minimum spend of $4,000 in 3 months. The annual fee is only $95/year.

 

Chase Freedom Credit Cards

The Chase Freedom Flex is a no annual fee card that can earn Ultimate Rewards if you have one of the Chase Sapphire cards also. We love Ultimate Rewards and like to earn as many as we can. Right now this card will earn you 5% at the gas station up to $6,000 worth of spending in the first year. It also earns 5% back on rotating categories each quarter and sometimes that has been gas. Having this card for that quarter is a great way to earn a lot of Ultimate Rewards. This no annual fee card gives you 20,000 Ultimate Rewards (or $200 cashback) with only a $500 spend!

The Chase Freedom Unlimited Card has the same first-year 5% back on the first year. We just like the Freedom Flex more because of the other rotating categories!

 

Capital One Venture Cards

The Capital One Venture X Card is one of our favorite cards for many reasons. This card and the Capital One Venture Card earn 2 points for each dollar spent on all purchases making it a no-brainer to use for many everyday purchases, including gas.

Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card

Although not one of our favorite cards, the American Express Hilton Honors Surpass Card is surprisingly good at the gas station. If you want more Hilton points, you will earn 6 points per dollar spent when you buy gas. Keep in mind Hilton points aren’t valued as high as other points but if you love Hilton this is a good option. Right now the offer is 130,000 points plus a free night award after spending $2,000 in 3 months. That makes it a really good offer if Hilton is your hotel of choice.

 

Chase Ink Business Cash Card

The Chase Ink Business Cash Card is one of our favorite business cards because of the 5% we earn at office supply stores. This is a great way to buy gift cards for use at other places and earn lots of Ultimate Rewards. It also earns 2% at gas stations making it a better credit card to use than many others. This no annual fee card gives you 75,000 Ultimate Rewards after a $7500 minimum spend.

 

The Chase IHG Premier Credit Card

The Chase IHG Premier Credit Card has a welcome offer of 140,000 points after a minimum spend of $3,000 in 3 months. The annual fee has increased to $99 from $89 and is not waived in the first year. The card design looks different too. Even better, the bonus spend categories are better.

  • 10x on IHG stays
  • 5x on travel, gas stations, dining
  • 3x on everything else

 

Chase IHG Rewards Premier Business Credit Card

The Chase IHG Rewards Premier Business Credit Card is a completely new card. Since business cards don’t count against your 5/24, we are happy to have the addition of this new card. You can get a 140,000 welcome offer with this card after a minimum spend of $3,000 in 3 months. The annual fee is $99. This card will also get you that free night certificate we like so much! The bonus categories are:

  • 10x on IHG stays
  • 5x on travel, gas stations, dining
  • 3x on everything else

 

Bottom Line

No one is enjoying paying high gas prices at the gas station these days. You can soften the blow a tiny bit by using one of these best credit cards for gas. We have to pay for it anyway, let’s get rewarded for it!
