Saving gas money is a constant challenge for frequent commuters and travelers. The average gas price in the U.S., according to the American Automobile Association is $3.65, down $.10 from a year ago. While that is a relief for some, it’s still too high for many. There are many ways to save gas money, such as by taking fewer trips, keeping your tires inflated, and keeping your driving speed consistent. But, as a loyalty programs enthusiast, I am always on the hunt for other angles to lower one’s cost of living.
You may have heard about Shell’s Fuel Rewards program, but it’s worth revisiting, so lets view a video on how the program works.
Saving gas money is easy with Fuel Rewards
After registering, just use your linked fuel rewards network program card(s) and Fuel Rewards points will credit your purchases based on the dollar amount spent with affiliated retailers, online and in store. Use another grocery store-linked fuel savings program? You can still use that, too.
After earning credit for your purchases, you can apply them at the pump using your Fuel Rewards card and watch your price per gallon drop. According to the Fuel Rewards website, consumers save an average of $.33/gallon (presumably a month since the credits do expire). While not a barn-burner, as I always say, if you are going to buy something, you might as well get something in return. Saving gas money with loyalty programs such as this one should be on your list, too.
