Save with the Fuel Rewards Network Program (and a Giveaway!)

Many of you that read my blog know that I am a total bargain hunter. Looking for the latest and greatest deals is almost a game to me – I think it's fun! I clip coupons for groceries, buy clothes at rock-bottom price, and use coupons/vouchers for dining out. It's rare that we pay full price for something.

But gas? That's a tricky one. It can be very difficult to save on gas. I'll occasionally find a deal on a gas gift card, and I try to find the lowest prices in town, but those are really the only ways I've been saving on gas purchases.

That is until now! A few weeks ago I was introduced to the Fuel Rewards Network™ program, or FRN program. This is such a great concept – save on gas with everyday purchases that you're already making! Here are a few of my favorite ways to save with this card (these vary by market):
  • Earn 5 cents per gallon for every $50 spent at a participating grocery store.
  • Earn 10 cents per gallon for every $50 spent at participating restaurants.
  • Earn 10 cents per gallon by using multiple eCoupons at participating grocery stores.
  • Purchase specially marked products, car washes, and auto services at participating Shell stations.
My favorite thing about the FRN Card is that I can combine all of these ways to save to make the rewards really add up! The average FRN Member is saving $0.31 a gallon on their Shell fuel purchases (according to fuelrewards.com on 5/6/13). Imagine taking one, two, or even three dollars a gallon off of your purchase...that adds up to huge savings! You can save on all three grades of Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines including Shell V-Power® Premium Gasoline and Shell Diesel through this program.

Signing up for the FRN Card is so easy. I dropped by my participating Shell station and picked up the pack above. I activated my card at fuelrewards.com...and voila! I started saving on my Shell gas purchases by doing things I already do. You can also request a card at fuelrewards.com, or use the FRN mobile app (available on iPhone and Android) to sign up. The app can be used to find nearby savings, check balances, and more. They would seriously have trouble making this program easier to use!

You can find more information about the Fuel Rewards Network program at their website and Facebook page.
