Costco Gas Station: Gas Station or Wholesale for Cash Back?

Postby guitarlifter » Fri Jun 19, 2015 4:01 am

I'm wondering because the Pen Fed card as well as my Chase Freedom offer 5% CB (sometimes with Freedom) on gas stations, and they're Visa, which is what Costco will be accepting soon enough. Will the gas station count as a gas station, or is it also wholesale like the rest of costco?
Whats's in the wallet: Discover It - $3,800 (5% rotating, ShopDiscover), Sallie Mae Rewards MC - $1,000 (5% on gas, groceries, and Amazon), Chase Freedom Visa - $1,200 (5% rotating + 10% extra w/ Chase Total Checking), PayPal Extras MC (1.66% on PayPal, 2.5% on Restaurants- $3,000, Bank of America Cash Rewards Visa Signature - $5,000 (Signature benefits), PNC CashBuilder Visa - $1,000 (Don't use), Fidelity Investment Rewards Amex - $5,000 (2% on everything)

. . . and some store credit/charge cards.

Future cards:

-US Bank Cash+ (for the 5% categories)
-1-2 0% APR cards for some big purchases I'll be making within the year

My understanding is that the MCC must be 5542 (Automated Fuel Dispensers) and that Costco's gas pumps are not coded as such.
