In my experience the absolute worst person to ask about Costco policies is a Costco employee.

You don't get any CashBack on GAS.

From Costco:
Reward is approximately 2% of pre-tax purchases of most merchandise made through: front-end registers and most ancillary business registers at Costco warehouses; and Costco websites in both the U.S. and Canada by U.S. and Canadian residents. In the U.S., Rewards are not calculated: (i) on purchases of cigarettes or tobacco-related products, gasoline, Costco Cash Cards, postage stamps, alcoholic beverages in certain states (including Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Ohio, and Michigan), and at food courts; (ii) on membership fees; (iii) on purchases not recorded through Costco’s front-end registers and transactions done on or through websites not hosted by Costco even if accessed through Costco.com, including all business, consumer, and insurance services, the online photo center, Costco Travel and the My Publisher website; (iv) on miscellaneous fees, deposits and taxes, including sales tax; (v) where prohibited by law or regulation; (vi) on purchases made by anyone other than the account’s primary or primary Household Cardholder; and (w) on certain other categories as determined at Costco’s discretion, which may change without notice.

thanks everyone. yeah I have the business card and was hoping for 4% + 2%

It used to be 6% for the business card. 2+ years ago.

Nevermind. Someone already posted this, and I missed it.

You get the 4% on the card, but not the 2% rebate on the Executive program.
