I have credit card from an oil company.
(I probably shouldn't say the name, but I guess I could say the initials: B.P.)
The credit card gives a 5% rebate on gas purchased at B.P. stations.
Gas prices suck (and I'm surprisingly cheap) so I decided to use said credit card.
There are no B.P. stations in Seattle but there is AM/PM, which is owned by B.P.
I like AM/PM because:
- their gas is always the least expensive in the area
- they remind me of Japan
- it's easy to spell
AM/PM only takes cash or debit card.
Which means that, basically, I can get a great rebate when I use a credit card at a place... that doesn't take credit cards.
Somewhere an oil executive is laughing.
That's it. I'm switching to a different kind fuel...
