Here’s a tip on gift card bonus offers. If you know you are going to buy these bonus offers, first buy gift cards to the restaurant/store at a grocery store that gives fuel points.  For instance, Kroger 4x the fuel points offer is back thru 12/9. Then use those gift cards to buy your gift cards!  I know this seems a little odd- and you will get funny looks, but why not! That’s what I call a tasty double dip! ;)
