I've had a credit card with those two for a few years. It got me a few cents off gasoline. It wasn't much, but it was better than nothing.
I just received notice that the credit card program is being discontinued, but there's great news! I can have a new credit card from Exxon/Mobil that gets me six cents off a gallon!
Of all the gasoline credit cards out there, a six cent discount is the largest I've seen. Wonderful! I'm pre approved. Oh, wait. There's some fine print here. Let's take a look.
In order to get the discount, I have to buy 45 gallons of gas a month. I think my tank holds 14 gallons. That means I have to buy three tanks per month, and fill up when the tank is on empty.
Impossible. First, I rarely go below a quarter tank. I'm blessed that I live close to work and the dollar store. There's no way I buy 45 gallons a month.
The credit card offer quickly found a home in my shredder.
