Signal v. Noise, a publication about the web
Say goodbye to convenience!
::eyes widen:: You can do that?!
“Mugging you? No no, this is a convenience appropriation.”
Notice how there’s a catch on the abolition of the 45 cent fee.
There’s also a catch on the cash rewards. It never ends.
I tried to read the full terms and conditions on their web site. Best I can tell, there’s a 45¢ fee on EVERY transaction EXCEPT when you buy from “participating ARCO and ampm store locations.”
And even on that, “Terms of this offer are subject to rules determined by ARCO and may be modified, added or deleted, and this Program may be eliminated in its entirety without notice to Cardmembers.”
I’m STILL not understanding their reason for existing.
hello silent rate increase!
My Parents own an Arco, I hate the fee as much as everyone that complains about it to me
