Get respite from increasing gasoline prices by using the right credit cards

[Friday, April 6th, 2012]

The prices of gasoline continue to trend northward forcing customers to take the right measures to get relief from these increasing prices. While using public transport more often as compared to cars seems to be a feasible option, you can also use the right types of credit cards that offer gas station rewards to minimize the impact of the increasing costs.

The cost of gasoline increased by about 8 percent in the month of February this year and experts forecast that this increase could reach newer highs by summer. Paying $4 per gallon of gas is becoming increasingly difficult for people, especially for those whose households run on a tight budget. However, one silver lining is the gasoline cards that help customers get a certain amount of relief from the increasing prices.

Before signing up for gas station rewards cards, it is imperative to go through the fine print to understand the terms and conditions that govern these rewards cards to avoid feeling cheated at a later point of time. Also, look out for the fees and other charges that tend to be higher as compared to few other credit cards.

Customers can apply for two major types of credit cards that offer reduced prices at gas stations. While one set of cards are issued by the banks, the others are issued by the gas stations directly. Card holders can get gas rewards and rebates based on the number of points they accumulate by using these cards for their purchases.

Deliberating well before signing up for the credit card with gas rewards is very important to make the most of it. The credit cards issued by a particular gas station are a good idea if you tend to fill the fuel from one particular gas station near your home or workplace. However, if you do not have any specific preferences, then you can scout for the right credit cards from banks that offer good rewards at gas stations. The latter seems to be an ideal choice since you are not limited by the gas station where you fill fuel.

To get the most from these gas station rewards cards, it is imperative for customers to pay off their dues on time without any defaults. Since rates of interest on credit cards that offer gas station rewards are higher than most of the other cards, not repaying dues on time can increase the outstanding balance on your cards to a great extent.
