Gulf Gas Card Worth It or Not?

Postby Michael » Thu Nov 21, 2013 11:44 am

I have heard that the Gulfcard (the gas card not the Gulf Mastercard) gives as much as 10 cents a gallon off at the pump (same as cash) when you use it at most Gulf stations, instead of another credit card.

This is better than 3% where I live, and even more in other parts of the country.

Does anyone know if this is true? I have also heard that this discount (cash price) is available at most Gulf stations, even if it is not openly advertised.

Most gas stations which charge more for credit cards, give the "cash discount" when you use their card (store or major network card) at their pumps. Personally, I avoid gas stations which charge more for credit cards. And I definitely try to avoid store branded gas cards which can only be used at their stations, anyway because their APR borders on usury and are of limited use.
