Having missed out on Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA), stumbling upon FleetCor is a! pleasant surprise. FleetCor Technologies is a company that provides fuel cards and payment products used by employees. The company also has lodging cards, but since the overall concept is the same, I will focus most of the discussion on fuel cards.
