Are gas station gift certificates covered under 5% cash back at gas stations?

Postby commdiver » Mon Jul 22, 2013 4:49 pm

I rarely use my car, so I would like to get a hundred or so on a gift card to take advantage of this 5% cash back that my It and Freedom cards are doing. If I purchased a Shell gift certificate from a Shell gas station, for example, would I get 5% cash back on that gift certificate?

99% are. You might find a rare gas station every now and then that codes what you purchase inside differently from what you purchase at the pump.

For gas: Penfed Platinum Cash Rewards
For travel & dining: Chase Sapphire Preferred
