This giveaway is now closed, and BlogHer will be contacting the winner. Thanks!
Though I try to keep my driving to a minimum, gas is a non-negotiable expense in my household (my neighborhood has a dismal walkability score!) And since gas prices have been going in a direction that’s very much the opposite of down, I’ve been trying to be especially mindful of my gas spending.
So, when BlogHer told me about the Fuel Rewards Network™ program, or FRN™ program, I was all ears. The program revolves around the Fuel Rewards Network Card, which you can pick up at any participating Shell station for the low, low price of $0.00 (you can also sign up online).
After activating your FRN Card online at fuelrewards.com, you can start earning Fuel Rewards® savings.
How do you earn rewards? One way is by grocery shopping (depending on your location). If you’re lucky enough to have a participating grocer in your area, you can link your grocery loyalty card to your FRN card and earn gas discounts when you buy food.
You can also earn discounts by dining at local restaurants. You can put in your zip code to see which restaurants in your area are participating. In my area, at least, the participating restaurants were all locally owned, so when Mr. FG and I go out on dates and support locally owned restaurants, we can earn gas discounts at the same time.
Your regular online shopping can earn you gas discounts as well if you shop through the FRN Online Mall, which has nearly 700 brand name online merchants. If you need to make an online purchase anyway, you might as well snag some gas discounts while you’re at it. You get a discount on gas for buying a discount on something else!
A really handy thing about this discount program is that you can combine discounts from all of these methods, which means you can earn yourself a pretty decent discount on gas. Of course, it doesn’t make sense to shop just to save on gas, but if you use the FRN program on purchases you’ve already planned and budgeted for, the gas discount is like finding money you didn’t know you had.
Ok! To get started, visit a Shell station and pick up your FRN Card. Then follow these easy steps to activate your FRN Card:
-Go to fuelrewards.com and click “Sign Up” to activate your FRN Card. If you don’t already have an FRN Card, you can request an FRN Card online during sign up to be mailed to you.
-Select “Fuel Rewards Network” for your card.
-Enter your card number and PIN. Follow the steps to complete online enrollment. You can also activate your FRN Card by downloading the FRN Mobile App for iPhone or Android.
