My sister and brother went on a two-week road trip. As they were coming back, they passed by the Fargo Costco and pulled in for gas. And that's when my brother-in-law found out something shocking. He couldn't get the special deal on gas in Fargo like he does in Rochester! Sister and brother-in-law return to Rochester, BIL gets gas, gets

the special deal again. He asked why, and the gas guy said, "It's a pilot program...not everyone's on the program."

Ahhh...which explains why the Costco 4% cash back for gas offer clearly states "on eligible gas." It's a pretty sweet deal if you drive a bunch. 4% back on the first $7,000 in gas a year, then 1% after. 

So, consider yourself fortunate to live in Rochester. First class medical care, great Townsquare Media Rochester Radio Stations, and you get the gas deal at the Rochester Costco.
