How to Apply for a Gas Credit Card

April 10th, 2015

Do you want to sign up for a new gas credit card? Is this your first time? Well here’s a little help for you, on how to apply.

Pick a gas card.

Picking a gas hard can be easy and hard, just depends on how hard or easy you make it. If you’re not sure which card company you’d like to go under, use the internet for some advice looking up rankings for the best card here in the U.S, or go to family or friends and see what they use or what they’d refer you to. There are many different benefits with card companies while you use their cards, so make sure to look into those as well.

Rewards.

While looking for a card to apply to, make sure to check their list of “rewards.” What is the percentage of cash you get back? can you redeem cash back? Anything their is under the small print that you need to read on? Make sure to check off these questions.

Value.

So you’ve read on your card and think you might have a card that you think you’d like best, and one that would be to good use for you and your expenses. There are still many, many questions to be asked and many answers we are looking for. For example, what is the annual fee under the card you have chosen, or are leaning towards? The up note about some card companies is that there are NO annual fees, major white flag when looking for a gas card. The words “No annual fees” sing to just about anyone looking to save money, and let’s be honest, who isn’t?!Also APR rates, and over limit fees are questions along the line of your annual fees. All very important to know.

Applying.

Once you have a strong decision on the card you want to use, it is time for you to push that button and get ready to apply. General information on you will be required, first and last name, and your birth date just like any other application. Pick from different colors and decorations that you would like to have on your card. Make sure to have your personal cards and your wallet near by just in case while signing up for a gas card, esp if you have never done so before, you never know what questions will be asked on the application. Every company is different, and so as every application.

Young Driver Auto Insurance

January 16th, 2009

Children learning to walk brings exhilaration to their parents but at the same time brings also fear that they might stumble and fall. When kids learn how to drive, the emotions parents feel are quite akin to what they had when they were beginning to walk. Parents welcome the progress in their children’s lives but are protectively fearful at the same time being aware of their inexperience in the new-learned activity or function. Parents will have an innumerable “what ifs” in their minds as their teen son or daughter ventures out into the street in the family car? What if he did not see a road hazard? What if he did not avoid unsafe driving situation? What if… and on and on.

January 15th, 2009

Paying more money does not always mean that you are getting the best; sometimes you get less for what you paid for. This is true also with car insurance where high premium makes people believe that they are getting the best coverage when in truth they are getting only what is equivalent coverage to what some other people are paying a lot less for.

Are Cash Back Credit Cards Worth It?

January 14th, 2009

More and more people get their own cash back credit cards nowadays but the question is, what do these cards really do and are they really effective in ensuring cost efficiency? It seems that more and more people get attracted to the benefits of cash back credit cards most especially now that the whole world is experiencing a financial crisis. But are they really worth it? Here are some ways you can make sure that you get a real deal when you apply for yours, plus some tips on things to watch out for.

Credit cards are of the most value to those who know how to use them. This means that you can get the most benefit from a card simply by not leaving a monthly balance on the card, and by making payments on time. So if you can follow those two simple rules, then you can qualify to get the best benefits from a cash back credit card.

Choose a card type that will work to your advantage. Everyone has a certain type of credit card that they can profit from the most. For instance, a gas card will profit those the most that drive a lot of miles each month, and need to maintain a car, or spend time in a hotel. This is because the points that are given for your purchases can be used toward hotels, and you may get the most cash back for your purchases of gas. Some gas cards will even give you points for car maintenance expenses, and possibly the points may even be applied toward buying another car. A card that is selected for your greatest monthly expenses will give you the most benefits.

Also, see how much of a percentage of cash back is given toward your more ordinary purchases – like food, medicine, and gas (if it is not a gas card). This can go anywhere from 1% up to 6 % for some products. Obviously, you want the highest percentage you can get.

This feature is especially important if you have balances on other credit cards. You can transfer them to your new cash back credit card and enjoy a 0% APR balance for up to 15 months. This gives you great savings in interest and can help you to reduce those other credit card debts, if you will pay the same amount on the new credit card.

This is one way that many people lose their benefits. Not comparing the various features listed in this article, and following its advice will often reduce their benefits reduced to a big fat zero – or less. Although they will get some rebate checks, they need to add up their late fees and interest for each month in order to determine if it really is good deal.

Of course, the best thing for you to do is to choose a cash back credit card with a low interest rate, no annual fees, or hidden charges. In addition, remember that by using it right, you also are building up a credit score – one that will allow you to buy the big purchases – especially if you don’t have all your credit cards maxed out.

Is Using A Gas Station Credit Cards A Good Thing Or Not?

January 13th, 2009

First of all, you need to make sure you don’t have to drive extra to get a discount for your gas purchases. Remember, you of can save about $.10 per gallon. If you put an average of 15 gallons of gas in your car when you stop to fill up, that means a total of $1.50. If you have to drive over 1.5 miles (3 mile round trip) to obtain this saves you have lost money. You have also put in some extra time to drive these three miles. My suggestion is that if you have to drive over .5 mile (1 mile round trip) to get to a gas station where you will be able to obtain a rebate, forget it.

Perfect Gas Credit Card

January 11th, 2009

Gas prices have their valleys and peaks; they went up to a high of $4.50 per gallon of regular gas then bottomed out at $1.48 per gallon and it is now going up again, hitting $1.85 these days. It will not be surprising if it hit the $2.00 mark in a few days.

Gas, being a basic necessity worldwide, has to be purchased by people regardless of how it is priced.

Corporate Gas Card

January 9th, 2009

Corporations and business establishments find accounting difficulty at the end of the month due to reimbursement and cash advances transactions. To address this problem, bank and credit card issuers have decided to offer fleet cards or what we commonly know as gas cards. This can provide convenience to the company and to the employees as well. The company will be assured that the gas expenses of the employees are the actual amount that they purchased. For the employee’s part, they will be able to get their gas allowances instantly without submitting several requirements. Corporate gas cards minimize and at most eliminate cash transaction and employee reimbursement. Every corporation and establishment should not make use of this card to improve their operation.

Benefits Of A Gas Station Card

January 8th, 2009

We have seen the skyrocketing surge of gas price up to $4.50 per gallon and its recent decline to $1.49 per gallon. It has apparently reached the bottom and is now slowly inching its way up again, sending shivers to the gas-guzzling world. It may not be too far in the future when gas prices will go sky high again. More than ever, this is the time to save on gasoline but savings will not always mean cutting down on our driving so we consume less of that precious stuff. Saving on gasoline could mean also that we should find ways to buy gasoline at a discount, or a price lower than the regular pump price.

Gasoline rebate credit card is a good option to save some bucks. It is just like an ordinary credit card but it gives you rebates every time you use it to purchase gas. You can use it for other purchases but since it is focused on gas, rebates are given only on gas purchases and not on other items purchased.

There are two types of gas credit cards. The first one gives the cardholder rebates when making gas purchases on any gas station and the second one gives rebates only when used to purchase gas in the gas stations of a particular gas company. While both types of cards have their advantages, the gas card that focuses on one particular gas company seems to have the edge because of the following:

• More rebates – A gas credit card sponsored by a particular gas company gives more rebates off the pump than a gas credit card that can be used in all gas stations. A Shell MasterCard will give you from one to two percent more rebate compared with a Discover open road card. A Chevron Gas credit card gives 30 cents per gallon credit for 60 days from date of issue. While we are talking of cents per gallon savings here, we have to remember that those cents do add up. At the end of the month, or year, we realize a substantial savings in our gas purchases.

• Better gifts – Loyalty pays, especially when it comes to the gas station that we patronize every time we fill up our tanks. When you use your traditional credit card in purchasing gas from different gas stations, you do not develop loyalty to a particular one so don’t expect to be rewarded. When you are patronizing a single gas company for your fill ups, they see such loyalty and you are properly rewarded with gifts year round, no matter how small they may be. T-shirts, calendars, coffee mugs, or gas gift cards are usually sent by gas companies to their loyal patrons.

In choosing a gas credit card that is focused on one gas company, you have to see to it that such gas company has gas stations near your area so you don’t have to waste much gas to fill up. Also, see to it that the gas company is operating nationwide so that you can fill up on their stations whenever you travel. Apply for such kind of gas credit card now and start counting your savings.

Gas Rebate Credit Cards

January 7th, 2009

Gasoline is a necessary evil; its price could go sky high but we still buy them. Even at gasoline’s highest pump price at $4.50 per gallon, people keep on buying them as there is no alternative to it. The only way to mitigate the high cost of gasoline is to look for savings options. One can minimize driving by taking public transport, trading your gas guzzler for an economical model, or learning how to drive at a speed that is considered most fuel efficient.
