5% on gas, no annual fee.
You can earn up to 5% on gas purchases paid at the pump and avoid an annual fee by obtaining a qualifying PenFed product.
The only catch is that you have to join the PenFed credit union. This is easy if you are affiliated with the military, Red Cross, or one of many other organizations. However, anyone can join the credit union by donating $20 to NMFA or volunteering for the Red Cross.
