Try To Offset Increasing Gas Prices
With gas prices continuing to rise across the country and speculation that we may soon see upwards of $4.00 per gallon, one needs to look for any opportunity to try and offset the cost of gas.
One of the easiest ways to offset the rising cost of gasoline is to use a rewards card for all of your gasoline purchases.
There are a few different varieties of gas reward cards available but one that I have really taken a liking to is the BP Visa Rewards card. This card offers a 5% reward on all gasoline purchases made at any BP station, which happens to be convenient for me with a BP station right near my house and one right near my office.
With the BP Visa card, you accumulate the reward until you reach a minimum of $25.00 and then have the option of receiving a check or BP gift card. The approach that I have taken is to wait until I accumulate $100 and then request a check in the full amount. The reason that I do not request the BP gift card is because I would then miss out on earning the reward on any gasoline purchased with the gift card as opposed to my rewards card.
As an added bonus the BP Visa card is currently paying up to a 10% reward for an introductory period, which we actually took advantage of when my wife transferred one of her existing cards over to the BP Visa card.
