Using Fuel Points

Points can be reedemed at gas stations at these supermarkets, or participating Shell locations which can be found here.
Don’t buy too many cards if you don’t drive much, as point expire in 30 days or at the end of the following month. Also try to fill up with an empty tank to maximize your profits. Read more here on how to use your points and see the new option introduced now to use the points on groceries as well.
How To Liquidate Gift Cards
Mastercard Gift Cards are not as easy to use as Visa. You can still use them at WalMart to purchase money orders, but you need to quickly hit cancel on the keypad after swiping to switch to debit and it doesn’t always work. You can also use them for bill pay at Walmart and Kmart. Also check out smaller local stores near you that sell WU money orders.
A good deal for savings on gas, all while also earning cashback with one of the best cards for grocery purchases. Now you have even more option, as many issuers have improved earning on groceries. Chase Freedom earns 5% this quarter. American Express has introduced many new limited time offers, and if you have the Citi Prestige card, supermarket purchases count towards the travel credit and earn 5x.
You can even use Mastercard of Visa gift cards that you might have purchased recently, depending on your location. But you would be losing out on credit card rewards.
