Do you use rewards cards? Have you ever used one for gas? You already know I try to find the best deals on everything. And with gas prices what they are, and John having to drive in and out of NYC every day for work, it’s a big expense. He’s already started taking the train on certain days, but I signed up for the Fuel Rewards Network™ program, or FRN™ program, to help out a little more.
We already have rewards cards for grocery and drug stores we frequent, but never had one for gas. I was unsure of how it would work out and if the savings would be significant at all, but it’s really easy and can save John a lot at the pump! If you have a travel benefits credit card, it kinda works in a similar way, in that everything you purchase (whether at Shell, or online or at other stores) gives you rewards. Instead of points towards travel like on other cards, this gets redeemed for money off per gallon of gas!
You can also link the FRN Card to your other cards, for example, link it to your local participating grocery store card and it will automatically apply the purchases to your FRN Card to be redeemed for savings on gas! You don’t have to do anything else. I love when programs just make it easy for me to save money. You can get rewards from dining out and (my fave) shopping online too! When shopping online you get more rewards faster, because some stores give you 5x or 10x bonus rewards for shopping with them.
On average, members are saving $0.31 per gallon on fuel at Shell through the Fuel Rewards Network program (according to fuelrewards.com on 5/6/13). That adds up! And that’s just the average; you can save much more, depending on what your habits are. You can sign up at any Shell station, or you can be lazy like me and sign up online at FuelRewards.com to just pick up at the Shell station (or lazier still, have your card and membership info mailed to you after signing up online.)
We’re driving down to Baltimore for our cruise next month and it’s my goal to fill up before we leave and pay like zero cents for gas! (Okay, okay, not zero cents…but a really low price so John can be surprised.) Sign up at FuelRewards.com and check out the FRN program page on Facebook: HERE as well.
