Or, you could buy Mobil gift cards at the grocery store with your BCP.. 6% beats everything. If you're spending exclusively at Mobil.

Really, there is no reason to use a debit card for anything.

If I accumulate enough Kroger points for $1.00/gallon off, which I could do by buying gift cards, I will be able to pay less than $1.00 for my next tank. However, it's hardly worth the effort for me as I only drive about 3,500 miles/year, spending about $25/month on gas.

If I could get my gas down to $50/week I'd be thrilled!
