An interest rate of 23% on the Valero Gas Card is high, but if you plan to pay the balance within the grace period the card is great for managing your gas expenses. The option to choose your due date is a good in terms of assisting you manage your cash flow. No rewards program isn’t good .

The ONLY thing that is good about this card is the 21 day grace period, which allows you to fill up your car if you are low on funds but know you will get paid soon. There are no rewards and a high APR on the Valero gas card, so it offers very few incentives. This is a card to get if you are very desperate or if you have no other options and need to build credit, but that is it.

The Valero Gas Card offers very little in the way of an incentive to get this card. The APR is quite high compared to other cards and since it offers no rewards, the only thing one gets from this is a credit card. Visa, Mastercard, and American Express all offer rewards credit cards with lower rates and much better advantages in terms of purchase protection, car rental protection, and signup bonuses. If you need a card to start building credit again and this was one of the only options available, then this card makes sense. However, my recommendation would be to try to get a card such as Blue by more

This only seems like a good option if can't qualify for another card. There are no perks to using it. You get no rewards and the interest is pretty high. I'll stick with my Disney Chase Visa.

I'm really not 100 percent sure what the benefit of the Valero Gas card is! The interest seems pretty high, there are no rewards, and there are no balance transfers! I suppose it would be a good option if you needed gas and you had no money available! There are many cards with better options than this; I would highly recommend you check those out!

The Valero Gas has some great features and some that could be adjusted. The rates on the card are higher than rates on other cards. Not allowing balance transfers is a downfall as well because if you have a current gas card it makes it difficult to switch until you have it completely paid off. The grace period is also not as long as others. The .30 back on your first 100 gallons of gas is a great feature.

The Valero card is pretty rad, almost anyone qualifies for it, and it has a 21 day grace period, great if you need a quick fill up but dont have the cash for a few days.

The Valero Gas Card sounds like a great card, especially when first utilizing it. $.30/gl up to 100 gallons is very generous and makes using this card very logical. The one negative is there is no intro rate and balance transfers are not allowed. I only like to use one card.

The greatest advantage of this credit card is that you do not need a very high credit score to qualify. However, overall, I would say this card is not worth it. It doesn't offer any benefits or rewards like other credit companies such as Discover. I don't think a credit card meant specifically for gas purchases is necessary. I see how it may help some people restrict their purchases to gas only, but if you are the type of person who can manage oneself and stick to a budget, this credit card is a waste of time. The fact that it does not offer cash back or possess a reward more

I was truly disappointed with the Valero Gas card. i no longer use it due to the hefty APR and rewards that are hardly worth using the card to option. Overall I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. More of a hassle than a gain.

When I first heard about the Valero Gas card a while ago, I imagined that it'd have similar rewards structure and benefits to what many other gas companies offer on their cards (BP etc). I also have a multitude of Valeros in my area, so I imagined that this would be a fantastic card for me! Unfortunately, the card is probably the most basic gas card I've ever seen. There are NO benefits to having this card whatsoever besides the fact that it's a credit card. My BOA CC at least gives me 2% CB on gas, which I would've expected to be higher for the Valero card if used more

This looks like an interesting gas card because not all cards have a 21 day grace period and a fair credit score required. Even though the rate and late penalties seem a bit high, the flexibility of the grace period seems to be worth it. Another great thing about this card is that you don't have to pay annual fees!

One thing that is nice about this credit card is that you do not need to have great credit in order to be accepted for the credit card. You only need to have fair credit to get this credit card. What is also nice about this credit card is that you have a 21 grace period to pay the portion that you owe. Not many credit cards have this option. For instance, when I had a wells fargo credit card, I did not have this option. Although overall, this credit cards appears good, there a just a few things that bring my vote down to a 3 star. One thing more

The Valero Gas Card seems to have very very few benefits attached to it. The only one I can think of is the generous grace period provided. Since I don't think that is nearly enough of a benefit to apply for a card, I would have to recommend against this one. For starters, it is a store card so it can only be used at Valero. Furthermore, it has no rewards structure whatsoever, so it really makes no difference to use this card for your fill ups as opposed to any other. Get a card with rewards and use it only at Valero and you suddenly have a much better more

I like Valero Gas Card, well Valero is one of my favorite gas stations because they often times have the cheapest gas in town so maybe i am biased but the card is really only good if you like Valero really. First off one of the good things is there is no annual fee which is something i always look for because there are a lot of cards with annual fees which is crazy because there are so many great ones without it. Other than that there really isn't any benefit to this unless, like i said you go to Valero often or perhaps you are trying to build your more

From what I can see the only good aspect of the Valero card is there are no annual fees, one may argue it has a generous 21 day grace period. The 23% annual interest is quite high and very unattractive. Compared with my Capital One Venture card the Valero is not worth considering. My cared provides a 1% reward for every purchase and for a small yearly fee they will double that. The annual interest rate is 16% on the Capital One is 16%.

The Valero Gas Card is a store card that has, like many other store cards, a fairly high rate at 23%. I have been considering getting a gas card in particular to save some money at the pump because some of them offer a rewards or cash back, but unfortunately this card has no rewards plan at all. This puts it behind many of its competitors such as Shell (who offer 5 cents back on each gallon). The only perk to this card is that they allow you to set the due date for when your bill is due. Outside of that there is very little reason to consider this more

The Valero Gas Card is a decent option if you spend a good chunk on fuel. 30 cents back per gallon can really add up, and is better than the terms of non-gas credits cards, that may offer up to 5%. The interest rate is asinine though. A max rate of 27.24%? No thanks. If you are going to pay your bill in full every month then this card might work out just fine for you. Otherwise the amount you are paying in interest will exceed the cash back you are earning. It also appears that the cash back terms are valid for just the first 30 months, so be more

I had high hopes for this card, as I have tons of Valero stations in my neighborhood. Unfortunately, I can not recommend this card to people looking for gas credit cards. The Valero Gas Card only gives you 30 cents per gallon. This is definitely the deal killer. There are many gas cards out that offer rewards. For example, the Marathon gas card offers you 50 cents per gallon if you purchase a certain amount. Don't get me wrong, getting any rewards is leaps and bounds better than no rewards at all. Like all credit cards, just read the fine print before you decide, as mentioned by many other reviewers below.

This is definitely a decent option if you are specifically looking for a gas card. I know there are a lot of other card options out there but the reason I've used the Valero Gas Card is because it helps me manage my budget. The fact that it has a "fuel-only" option as well as a credit limit ensures that I use my money on gasoline, not the other needless things I end up spending my money on. It's quite convenient because I can use it at the pump just like a regular credit card and I can also manage the account online. In addition, payment is very flexible and more

The Valero Gas Card has certainly garnered passionate reviews. As the other reviewers say, the fine print is crucial and must be read. Compared to other gas cards (The Chase Freedom Card which gives you 5% back on gas rewards), this may fall short and not offer as many perks and incentives. The flexible payment terms i.e. choosing when you pay the bill is a great service! Also, their 21 day grace period is a huge help for those who may not be able to pay their bill on time (hey, we're in tough times!). The interest rate, though, almost negates the earning potential of 30 cents per gallon. This more

I have seen better gas cards. I do not know why this card would even require excellent credit in the first place. I do like the personalized customer service. I think that is nice to have that option. The 21 day grace period is nice. Sometimes there are rough months, so it is nice to be able to have a little extra time to pay of the bill before it could hurt your credit score. If you truly do need a gas card, I would probably look into other options that might be a little bit better, and not have such a high interest rate.

To begin, i've seen better gas cards that offer better rates and didn't require an excellent or even good credit score. The Fair credit score would make sense for the rate as well as the max late fee of 35 dollars. The 21 day grace period is good just in case you get caught in a rutt and unable to make your payment. However the 27.24% max interest rate is probably easy to hit even if you miss one payment at all. From what i've read also is that the offer for 30 cents off per gallon is only for the first 30 months and only on the first 100 more

The Valero Gas Card is a store credit card where you earn rewards. With an earning potential of 30¢ per gallon, it's not a bad little card, until you look at the interest rate. The interest rate is high at 23%, but it's actually a very competitive rate compared to other store cards in general, as well as other rewards gas cards. Now, you're probably thinking that 30¢ per gallon is a pretty high reward, and you'd be right. The reason they offer such a high rebate is because they only offer rewards for the first 2 1/2 years that you have the card. Still, you can save a lot more

First thing about this card, Please make sure you read the fine print, this can make all the difference between good and bad experience. I've had the Valero card an entire year now and I absolutely love it. I can honestly say they offer great rewards (again read the fine print). The bonuses last 30 months, which is why the reading of the fine print is a must. By the way that's a long time, The .30 cents received off of the gallon is actually a steal compared to what is normally given at the pump which is usually a measly three freaking cents. So no complaints over here I more

While it may get a bad rap, the Valero Gas Card is pretty fair in its rewards. It states clearly that the card only provides gas rebates for 30 months, which is 2 and a half years, which is more than enough time to get good mileage out of the card. The 30 cent per gallon coupon is also good for 100 gallons a month, which it is pretty difficult to get through every month unless you travel a lot! I would say to give this card a chance, even though the interest rate for it is a bit high.

The Valero Gas Card has a lot of fine print in it which you need to read to understand the limitations of this card. They claim to offer 30 cents off per gallon, there are two big catches. The first is that it is only for the first 30 months, and the second is that it's only on your first 100 gallons of gas. I don't know about you, but I would go through that within the first month. It's a nice little perk for opening a card with them. The only reason I can see getting this card is that it only works at Valero gas stations, so I more

At first glance, this Valero Gas Card appears to be a decent little rewards card, but if you dig deeper and read the fine print, it only last for 30 months. You receive .30 off a gallon for the first 100 gallons per month, which is nice for most people who commute short distances to work. Again, all of these bonuses only last for 30 months, not even three years and then you are stuck with a subpar gas card with a 23% interest rate. I like to look in to more long term solutions and most gas station brand gas cards will beat this card hands down over the years.

The rewards offered with the Valero Gas Card are really quite poor. You get 30 cents off a gallon for the first 30 months, but the fine print says it is limited to the first 100 gallons. If you do that math, that's only $30 worth of savings. For comparison sake, if you used a standard credit card that gave you 5% back on gas, and bought 100 gallons of gas at $4/gallon, you would get $20 back in rewards. So the rewards are good with this card while they last, but they don't last long at all. I would just recommend going with a regular credit card, or a more

With a rebate of $0.30 per gallon for 30 months, and no fees, the Valero Gas Card is a pretty great rewards card. Yes, it is limited to 100 gallons per month. So if you're a frequent long distance driver, there might be a better card out there for you. But for most people, I don't think that limit is going to be an issue. Most gas cards offer a way smaller rebate of 5-10 cents. 30 months is a pretty long time, that is 2 1/2 years! At that point, you can just switch to a different card. The 23% APR is rather high, but if you're just getting more

The $0.30 per gallon rebate is nice, but for only thirty months. At this rate I would be making back almost 10% per gallon on my gas purchases in my area. The current card I use only gives me back 5% for my purchases, but does let me use it for in store purchases, a option my current card gives me. The big drawback for me is that it can only be used at Valero gas stations. There only a few in my area and they are not close to me at all. It would an inconvenience for me to go get gas.

The Valero Gas Card is a sub par rewards card. The only reward offered from this card is a $0.30 per gallon rebate on gasoline and is limited to a 30-month period or 100 gallons within the offer period. The interest rate this card has is quite high at 23%, and doesn't justify this rewards program. This card does not have a cash advance option, limiting its only useful purpose to only be used for purchasing gas. Because of the limited incentives for this card and the high risk this card carries, it would not be wise to have this type of credit card, as there are superior reward credit cards available.

Wow, I'm sorry, Valero Gas Card, but this is probably one of the worst gas credit cards I've seen. The intro offer for rewards is quite nice - 30 cents per gallon of fuel is a good 8% or so. But that offer only stands for 1 month, which is an incredibly short time. You might fill up your car once a week, and that's maybe 40-50 gallons. So you save about 12 to 15 dollars. Then you're left with this card. No balance transfers, and an APR of 23%? No cash advances? I'm not sure this is even a credit card - this might be a store card. The more

I'm not a big fan of gas cards for the most part, but the Valero Gas Card seems exceptionally useless. The single locked rate of 23% is bordering on obscene when you consider how week the reward program is. There are no features to this card, no cash advances, no balance transfers, no introductory rates, just a single high rate and about 10% off the price of gas. the Valero Gas Card gets a big "no thank you" from me. If you have them in your area, the QuikTrip gas card is a much more comprehensive credit card, albeit still with the typical limitations that come with this type of more

Not attractive to me at all. I don't pay THIS much for gas per month, so I'd probably be wasting my time with this card. Folks who drive a lot every month would probably love this card though. The 30 cents per gallon is actually a pretty good deal in my opinion, but I do believe there are other gas cash back reward cards that can offer you a better deal as far as the "100 gallons a month" thing goes. I'd like for this card to give me the rewards with no limit to how many gallons I purchase monthly.

Wow, this seems to be an amazing deal on a card that I will use frequently. With the trial offer of 30 months with a $0.30 per gallon rebate, how can you lose? I am currently using a Shell gas card that only offers $0.05 per gallon rebate. I am using over 50 gallons per month so that is a $15 savings per month and $170 per year for two and a half years. No annual fee and I do not think I would hit the 100 gallon per month limit. I am going to sign up for this card today to see if it is as good as it seems.
