Worth is for each individual to determine. I ditched my gas cards long ago as they were not worth it to me for other reasons. I'd much rather buy gas when and where I need it versus trying to coast to an ExxonMobil only on Sundays to save an additional cent/gallon but YMMV.

Just to clarify: PenFed has more than card with Platinum in the name. The points card has already been nerfed. The cash rewards card is 5% with qualifying product (easy to meet that requirement IMO) -- at least until PenFed nerfs it.

Best is always subjective. We certainly have Costcos around here but they're not convenient to me and I'd rather use any station of my choosing -- especially on road trips. I also prefer the PPCR's automatic monthly credits versus the annual Costco check. Another YMMV.
