    The PNC Everyday Rewards card seems like it would also be a great gas card. It gives 4% on the first $250 spend on gas each month and there are other bonus categories as well with lesser cashback. I rarely see this card mentioned on credit card reviews so I am curious if people have had negative experiences with it?

    • DR says:

      Bill, thanks for the tip. That card does sound like a good offer.

    interesting dont all credit card company has hidden fees that they charge you for life.

    • COLLECTOR says:

      NO CREDIT CARD COMPANIES DON’T HAVE HIDDEN FEES- THEY HAVE FINE PRINT. ITS UP TO THE CONSUMER WHETHER OR NOT THEY READ THE FINE PRINT. BY USING THE CARD EVEN ONE TIME YOU AGREE TO ALL THE FINE PRINT WHETHER YOU READ IT OR NOT.

  3. The PNC card is pretty solid, but if you’re STRICTLY after gas rewards you’re almost always going to get a better cash back structure with a credit card that’s directly partnered with a specific gas station…such as a Shell/BofA card. The only downside is that the card usually lacks any perks outside of gas and you’ll always have to scramble for a Shell station when you’re on E…which sometimes sucks….

    The Penfed card is still fantastic for gas, but it no longer gives you 2% on groceries – just 1%

  5. Chris says:

    Interesting no one mentions the BofA BankAmericard cash rewards card which gives 3% on gas, 2% on groceries, and 1% on everything else. I know there is distaste for BofA, but that thing is a gem. Those with BofA accounts get an extra 10% cash back as well.

    • Janet says:

      I agree with Chris. BofA has always treated me well.
