Sinclair credit card vs. other gas cards?

Postby dougernut » Tue Jan 03, 2012 3:05 am

Have you heard of the Sinclair Advantage card? Instead of giving cash back on gas you get a straight discount at the pump. The problem I am having is finding out how much that discount is.

The website has this Q&A about it but never says the amount of the rollback?

Does anyone here have a Sinclair credit card and share how much $$$ it saves? Is it more or less than if I were to go with a normal card like a Visa?

Thanks!

It would be more savings. So let's say in UT gas is 3.15 per gallon on your Sinclair charge card, but if you were to use a Capitol1 Visa let's say gas is 3.25 per gallon. when your vehicle is done being pumped you would save more on the Sinclair.

However you can use your normal Visa all over, anywhere you go. But your Sinclair credit card you can only use at that station. You get way more better benefits by using your normal Visa except maybe getting filled up at their gas station.

Do you know how much the discount will be with the card from Sinclair?

btw I spend about $35 per week on 89 grade gasoline, about $2k per year.

out where I live when I go to exxon/mobil or citgo. exxon is about 43 a week citgo is about 37 a week

i'm going to say if you use a charge card from sinclair it would be charged less . If I used my discover at mobil it might be 47 a week as compared to 43 for my exxon. I can't say for your area I can explain mine.
