Have you heard of the free Fuel Rewards Network program (or FRN)?  The FRN program allows you to earn rewards on everyday purchases whether it’s shopping online or dining out.  These rewards can be redeemed for significant savings like up to $3 per gallon fuel savings at participating Shell stations nationwide.  The FRN program allows you to combine multiple rewards offers to save huge.  Sounds great, right?

First, this is not a credit card.  It’s truly a rewards card that is completely FREE to have.  To earn your rewards you will link your credit and debit cards you already use to the rewards card.  Then when you dine out it can track your purchase and give you a reward.  You’ll earn 10¢ per gallon of gas for every $50 you spend at participating restaurants!!

Even if you never eat out, when you use your rewards card at the Shell pump you get 3¢ per gallon off automatically (plus anything else you’ve earned!).

Since FRN’s launch in 2012, members have saved more than $100 million through the program.  If you aren’t a member, then it probably hurts to think of how uch you could have saved in the last year… so let’s get started!

Pick up a FREE FRN card at participating Shell stations and activate it online.  If you would rather have the FRN card mailed to you, then just go ahead and sign-up for the Fuel Rewards Network program.

A couple of the ways you can save when with your FRN program are:

-Shop Online: Earn significant rewards on fuel by making purchases at nearly 700 brand name online merchants through the Online Mall.
-Dine Out: Eat out at more than 10,000 participating restaurant locations nationally and earn fuel savings with your meal.

Take a look at the “How it Works” video.

The Giveaway:

5 Southern Savers readers will win an FRN card pre-loaded with $1 per gallon savings (up to 20 gallons).

To Enter:

Leave a comment below telling me what you would buy with the money you save on fuel with the FRN card.

This giveaway is sponsored by the Fuel Rewards Network program, but all opinions are 100% my own.

The winner of this giveaway will be chosen and posted to the Giveaway Winners Page Wednesday, 9/4.
