We’ve been talking about Fuel Rewards Network for awhile now which is a great way to save money at the gas pump.

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 in big ways at the pump!  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 will track your purchase and give you a reward.

Want an even bigger perk of this program?  Refer some friends!  Earn gift card rewards for every friend you refer to the program starting at 50 referrals now through November 2.

Make sure you sign up and share your personal referral link with your friends.

The Giveaway:

One Southern Savers reader is going to win a $100 Shell gift card!

      As a young collage student we had the bright idea to travel from Atlanta to Prince George BC Canada where one of our roommates was from. To spice things up we decided to go to LA first. We thought we could do it in about 10 days round trip… 20 days later and 4,000+ miles we were back in Atlanta, broke and exhausted. Now I try not to go any farther than the airport :)

      I live in Western NC, my Mom & Dad on the Eastern Seaboard. They are 81 & 91 yrs old and still living as independent as possible with help from me & my sister. We both take turns caring for them dividing the time between us at two week intervals. My cost is $130 in gas on average per month which (to be honest) is a strain on my family budget but I do it freely for my parents. It would be awesome to have some relief especially with the Holidays approaching. Thanks for the chance to win this gas card. byw Harris Teeter has a gas reward program running now where you can purchase a $50 Shell or BP gas card for $40. I’ve been stacking this card at Shell with my Bi-Lo and Fuel Reward Network rewards for some awesome saving. :)
