What are my rewards when buying gas at Costco?

Postby Michael » Wed Jul 24, 2013 7:24 am

I just joined Costco.

I have AMEX BCP.

Does AMEX pay 3% or 1% on Costco gas?

Not sure. Here's why:

Costco Gas purchases, at least around me, code as gas stations. That should, theoretically, count as 3% for the BCP. However, Amex and Costco sell the True Earnings card as the only one that gives you a full 1% back on Costco purchases and 2% back on Costco gas. Unless Amex breaks your cash back down by transaction, there really is no way to know. Maybe a call to customer service is in order.

As always, refer to the terms:

From https://www304.americanexpress.com/personal-card-application/supplementary/blue-cash-preferred-card/sjterms/36182-9-0
3% on eligible purchases of gasoline at gas stations located in the U.S. (superstores, supermarkets and warehouse clubs that sell gasoline are not considered gas stations)
