I am not aware if anything like this! How did you learn of it? Was it just upon logging in to your account?

I will also miss gas dearly. Any nifty ways to get 5% back on prepaid visas?

Yup and I chose Applebees from the selection they had. Wish I had a screenshot of it but it came up logging in the other day. I think it expires sometime in November but I'll check when I get home.

Do you know any of the select department stores that sell the prepaid visas?

Sears might? Kohls? Macy's?

Yeah I checked.

I was actually almost gonna pick Walgreens but figured that I'd go out to eat more anyway. It was a very close call though.
