With Summer finally here, my husband and I are looking forward to taking a week to drive down to Naples, Florida and spend some time with my mom. From Birmingham, Alabama, that is a 13 hour drive, a little over 800 miles. In my car, we can make it on a little over 2 tanks of gas. Unfortunately, with gas prices on the rise (almost everyday it seems), that is going to cost us close to $100, one way! Sound familiar? However, thanks to Shell’s Fuel Rewards Network, it turns out it will not cost us that much at all. In fact, using the Fuel Rewards Network program, we may never have to pay full price at the pump again!
What Is The Fuel Rewards Network Program?
Shell’s Fuel Rewards Network (FRN) program gives consumers the power to lower their fuel prices significantly with everyday purchases. Purchases like food, clothing and household goods, all of which can be redeemed for cents per gallon savings at participating Shell stations. The program is absolutely FREE and offers many ways to save.

Did you know that the The Winn-Dixie Fuelperks! Program, which is now part of the Fuel Rewards Network program, has already saved Winn-Dixie customers more than $65 million on fuel in the last three years? That is HUGE!
How to Redeem Your Fuel Rewards Network Rewards
Your rewards are cumulative, so that means all those discounts you’ve earned from groceries, restaurants, movies, coupons, and online shopping stack up to make for some deep discounts! On average, FRN members save $.23 per gallon, but you can earn up to $1.50 off! Keep in mind that you do have to redeem your discount all at once, so if you want to save your rewards, make sure you track them on the FRN website. Once you are ready to redeem your rewards, first swipe either your FRN Card or your participating grocer’s rewards card (make sure you registered it with your FRN account) at the pump before you pay in order to lower your price. After you follow the prompts, insert your payment method and begin fueling. Remember, you can get up to a maximum of 20 gallons of fuel per purchase, per vehicle. If you prefer to pay inside, just hand the cashier your FRN rewards card before you pump the gas so they can lower your price for you. Savings can be redeemed on any grade of Shell Nitrogen Enriched gasoline including Shell V-power Premium and Shell Diesel!
New Members Save More For A Limited Time!
For a limited time, new members of the Fuel Rewards Network program can get a 25c/gal sign-up bonus when they join the program!
