More Ways to Save on Fuel with Shell's FRN™ Program


A couple of weeks ago, I told you a little bit about the Fuel Rewards Network™ program, or FRN™ program. This is a fabulous way to save on gas...something that can be difficult to find sales and discounts on.
 
 
One of the best things about this card is that it takes things you are already doing to help you save on Shell fuels! I told you a few ways you can save with the FRN card in the last post...here are a few more ways I've found to save with your FRN card!
  • Shop through FRN's online mall that includes more than 700 name-brand online merchants. For every $50 you spend, you earn 5 cents off per gallon at participating Shell stations! Some merchants might even offer 2x, 5x, or 10x rewards...what a great way to save when shopping at popular online stores!
  • Some retailers offer FRN incentives for buying items in their store. For example, you might see a 5 cent per gallon reward for buying a certain brand of detergent at your local supermarket. You might also see some retailers offer double rewards on certain days. This varies by retailer, but check your local stores to see if they offer these perks!
  • Earn 3 cents per gallon at participating Shell stations for every $100 you spend when you use your MasterCard to pay at participating FRN grocery stores. You can also earn 5 cents per gallon savings off Shell fuel the first time you use your MasterCard when dining at participating FRN restaurants. You can stack this on top of savings you're already earning!
The average FRN member is saving $0.31 per gallon at Shell (according to fuelrewards.com on 5/20/13). I was amazed to check out fuelrewards.com today and see that there were some members paying as little as a penny per gallon when fueling up! I know fuel costs have been a big part of our household budget lately, and I'm sure they've been a big part of yours too...saving anything you can is so helpful. Imagine taking your fuel cost down to next to nothing...many members of the Fuel Reward Network program are doing it every day!

If you'd like to sign up, you have two options: head to your local participating Shell station to pick up a card pamphlet (like the one above), or go to fuelrewards.com and sign up. They'll send one right to you! Once you select “Fuel Rewards Network” for your card, enter your card number and pin, then follow the remaining steps to complete enrollment. This can also be done on the FRN Mobile App for iPhone or Android. They make this program so easy and accessible! One note – if you are a member of Kroger Co. and/or Ahold fuel rewards programs, you will redeem these separately from Fuel Rewards savings through the FRN program.
