Marathon Visa card gives you higher rebate if you spend more, for the highest rebate you need to spend $1000 per month. Which purchases qualify for this requirement?

Indeed, the Marathon Visa has a tiered system of rewards where you can get the most attractive 25¢/gallon only if you spend $1000 a month with this card. I have great news for you – you can make purchases with this card anywhere Visa is accepted and this will qualify for the rebate. However, you won’t earn any rewards on purchases outside Marathon. So if you make purchases with this card at Marathon and elsewhere, you’ll get rewards only on Marathon purcases and zero rewards elswhere. It seems just a little odd to spend so much and not get any rewards for your spendings.
General rewards cards are designed differently. You get your rewards wherever you shop. For example, with the Discover it Cashback Match credit card, you’ll get 1% per dollar on all purchases, but you will also get 5% in selected categories that rotate each quarter (you need to activate them). This quarter it just so happens that gas stations are among these categories, so you’ll earn 5% at gas stations.
