None of the gas companies listed are in NE IA.

I wouldn't fret about it, because the chances of winning are like most lotteries - not that great, and unless you are entering gas prices on a regular basis and participating fully in this site, you won't have many tickets in the drawing.

Alternatively, you can approach the brands that are in YOUR area and suggest that they might want to become involved in Gasbuddy and donate cards to gasbuddy for the drawings.

There's also the option of selling the card -- I assume that's legal?

Siouxliz:

Not knowing where in northeast Iowa you are, there are BP, Mobil, and Sinclair stations in Dubuque. There are Sinclair stations in Cedar Falls. And there are BP, Shell, and Sinclair stations in Waterloo.

At worse, if you win the gas card and there aren't any gas of the "card" gas stations in your immediate area (and you don't ever intend to drive to areas where the card can be used), you can always share the card with a family member or friend who can use the card. I'm fairly certain that you know someone who drives to those areas (if not other areas) that accept some of the gas cards that are awarded.

And, as a simple reminder, the more gas prices you post, the more points you earn; the more points you earn, the more chances you have to enter the drawing. Even if you might not use the gas card immediately.

Then don't enter the drawing.

Should you win, just hang onto your card for vacation travel.
