How To Activate 5% Cashback
Gas is always a big winner when it is a 5% category and adding tolls is a bonus — be sure to update your EZPass and other associated prepaid toll mechanisms and consider front-loading your account to get that 5% earn. Drugstores are a great place to stock up on personal items, snacks and of course the obvious, medication.
Be sure to double-dip on drugstores using the big chain rewards programs and rebate programs — hopefully, you don't have to deal with any receipts that are 3 feet long!
Just remember, after you hit that $1,500 spend in the quarter, you're back to 1%.
