Check out the Sam's Club (Sam Walton, not Good Sam) credit card. I get 5% on diesel. Also read fine print that you can only redeem once a year. Must be a Sam's Club Member.

That is IN ADDITION to the normal discount that you get with the Good Sams membership card at Flying J and Pilot.

Yep, a lot of people THINK that they are not eligible. You are. Just go to their website and they even tell you how to do it. There used to be a way that you could join one of various organizations with a ONE TIME small fee and then you are qualified to join PenFed. PenFed membership Choose OTHER.

One of the newest thing about a Penn Fed 5% back card is you have to put money in a savings/CD account to get the 5%.
Y'all might call them about that..

I joined the Pentagon Federal Credit Union a few years back and I had no government service. They asked for a donation for a Military Support Group instead. Pen Fed did change our reward program a year or so ago. To keep the 5% rebate on fuel purchases you had to have a checking account with a direct deposit. The rebate dropped to 2% (I think) if you did not do this. We use a lot of fuel so we did the checking account and I pay my credit card each month out of that. Works great. In addition Pen Fed has excellent customer service and a nice website.

Without a qualifying account, the fuel discount drops to 3%. A qualifying account can be a deposit in a Money Market Account, a loan, a line of credit, or as mentioned, a checking account with direct deposit.
The thing is that PenFed pays as high an interest rate as anyone else, and their credit card rates are as low as most others. With no limits on the amount of cash back on fuel purchases, as well as the discounts on other purchases, it is still the best value, even if you do have to meet a few minimal requirements.

I should add that there is NO limit to the amount of discount that you can earn. Some CC put a $1500 limit, etc, but not Penfed. You get the cash discount each month off of your monthly statement.


x2 ... that is the card we use for fueling up, gas or diesel. The 5% comes off each month's bill, so you don't pay it up front and wait to get it back. There are no other discounts / rebates / rewards on any other type of purchases with that card, so we use it for nothing but fuel.

For all other purchases, we use the Citi Double Cash Rewards MasterCard. You get 1% cash reward when you purchase, and another 1% when you pay the bill, for 2% cash back reward total.

Not necessary. Neither have I. Anyone can get one. You put $25 in a savings account with them and you can then apply and get the credit card.

The only problem with the PenFed card is that fuel purchases must be charged "at the pump". That can be difficult at truck stops.


All you have to do is call PenFed and explain the situation at the pump.


Wait a minute. Are you guys telling me that to use the Penfed card at truck stops, you HAVE to call Penfed everytime???

Having all that diesel torque should be reward enough. [emoticon] Just kidding, I couldn't resist.
