Do other people find it a hassle to use gas gift cards? My local Shell makes you go into the shop and tell them the exact amount in dollars you want to spend from the gift card. They won't tell you how much is on the card, so you'd better know beforehand. They also won't just let you fill the tank up. So if you think you need $20 worth, but don't want to waste money, you have to get $15 worth so the $5 won't go to waste - which means refueling more often.
I got a $50 Shell gift card once in a raffle and did use it. I'd have been a lot happier if they had just given me cash. 24% off Shell gas is probably cheaper than Costco gas, but for me it would mean a headache.
