Re: reloadable gas cards/visa's

I buy gift gards for the gas stations themselves at my Frys (kroger) because currently I am earning 4 times the fuel rewards points at their gas station.

I can tell you Walmarts Vanilla mastercards only have a one time upload fee and not a monthly fee. But its NOT re loadable.

Re: reloadable gas cards/visa's

Another option might be to set up a separate bank account. If you have direct deposit many credit unions will give you free checking. DH's credit union account has no minimum balance and no direct deposit required. I have an old account with US Bank that has a $250 minimum to be deposited each month. Our joint account at yet a different credit union has a $20 minimum balance/ no direct deposit required BUT you have to have a saving account with at least $1 in it. We don't pay any monthly fees on our bank accounts and each one has debit cards.

It might work for you if you combine 2 areas of the budget ... such as groceries and gas. I'd hate to waste $5 a month on fees. That is $60 a year!

I have a separate account already-its kind of a backuo account I started when dh and I were having issues. I thought about using that one but then I kind of liked having a back up account. even if it was only $100 in it. I think I will use it for gas though that makes the most sense- no fees and I know I can use it a pay at the pump any where. I use cash for groceries, didn't wan to use cash for gas since there is always a kid with me and I am not comfortable leaving them in the car to run inside. Our gas station attendants aren't the fastest in the world.

Walmart gas card cost nothing Purchase them in the store and pay at the pump (get a discount). They're also reloadable.
