Not sure which card is best for you?
The PenFed Platinum Rewards Visa Signature® Card earns one of the best rewards rates on gas you’ll find anywhere — an unlimited 5 points per dollar spent at the gas pump. And the $0 to boot.
In addition to free-flowing fuel rewards, the card also pays an unlimited 3 points per dollar on groceries and an unlimited 1 points per dollar on all other qualifying purchases.
Redemption options are limited, though. Points are redeemable only for travel, gift cards and merchandise. Cash back is not available.
Typically, travel redemptions yield the highest point value. Otherwise, you can generally expect a value of about 0.85 cents per point, which is less than what many other rewards cards offer.
You’ll also have to join PenFed’s credit union to apply. For more information about the PenFed Platinum Rewards Visa Signature® Card, check out our full review here.
