Type of Gas Credit Card Rewards

By: Tom Tessin

Gasoline credit cards are the easiest way to make a base of faithful consumers to support the business. With gasoline cards, cardholders receive rebates or discounts, free items after purchasing a pre-determined quantity of gasoline. Gas cards are very different from conventional cards, which were offered by retails stores.

In conventional reward system, you get trivial amount as discount or you need to buy expensive items to avail the discount or to obtain gifts. Such system does not attract customer interests and result in low rates of customer participation.

The reward system of gasoline credit cards automatically records the billing information and it is stored in the consumer reward database. When you obtain cards, you have to make payments using them.

Credit companies then send you the bills each month, which you have to pay dutifully. If you pay the bills on time, you get certain points or cash back as rewards. You can redeem these points to make other purchase or convert it into cash and pay the gasoline bills too.

Therefore, while applying for gasoline credit cards you need to go through the reward system of credit card companies and select the most appropriate one.

Reward System In Detail:

Points system:

Points systems in gas credit cards are same as that of cash back structure. It means, if you spend a dollar, you get one point. Sometimes, companies keep deal days, wherein you get the opportunity to double or triple your points during specific days.

Whenever you spend money, your points are accredited in your account. You can easily check the points online, by accessing your profile or just go through the monthly statements. It usually states how many points you have gathered until date. Later acquire those specific points and log on to online stores to make the purchase.

Most of you think that, stores do not pay attention to the individuals who wish to buy the products using point systems or they give them trash or old stock items. However, this is far from truth. You can easily buy anything from petty gift items to huge electronics, air tickets and so on. People, whose gasoline credit cards work on such systems, think that they actually offer them more as compared to cash back reward systems.

Miles Count Per Dollar:

Miles count per dollar system is rare and is a new concept in gasoline credit cards. Here instead of points, you get miles. The more the miles you stack up, the more money you earn. For instance, when you spend $2500 on gasoline, you earn 2500 miles and get rebate of $25, or you can also shop for anything that is worth $25.

Cash back: Here, when you use gasoline credit card, you get reward on every dollar that you spend. Some cards give you 5% back on each gallon. If the price of the gas is $300, then you need to pay $285 per gallon.

Thus, if you use you gas cards wisely they will help you to earn more rewards.
