CostCo

The two Costco American Express credit cards, the business TrueEarnings and the personal, have one unique feature: along among all the gas cards, they give bonus rewards when you fill up at Costco. Every other card (that we know of) has an exemption for wholesalers, and even other AmEx cards don't give a bonus there. Another added advantage is that Costco only takes American Express credit cards (a NerdWallet advertiser partner). On the downside, the American Express Costco recently cut its rewards rate, and there are a couple other cards (like the AmEx Blue Cash Preferred) that give better rewards overall.
