Shell's Fuel Rewards Network Lands in Chicagoland
CHICAGO -- Drivers in the greater Chicagoland area can now take advantage of Shell's Fuel Rewards Network (FRN), a cents-per-gallon loyalty program offered by Excentus. Nearly 380 local Shell gas stations will participate in the FRN program, the company stated.
To participate, drivers can pick up a free FRN card at a participating Shell station and activate it by visiting www.fuelrewards.com and follow the steps to start earning rewards on fuel, according to the announcement. They can also request an FRN card directly at the website.
Consumers can save with the program in four ways:
- OnlineMall -- Nearly 700 brand name online merchants offering 5 cents per gallon for every $50 spent, and some may offer multiplied rewards.
- Dining -- Consumers earn 10 cents per gallon for every $50 spent when dining at more than 10,000 participating restaurant locations nationwide.
- eCoupons -- Digital coupons available at www.fuelrewards.com for select retailers in select markets provide additional cents per gallon savings when an item is purchased at a participating retailer.
- Grocery and Other Programs -- Consumers can purchase items and earn Fuel Rewards savings from participating Jewel-Osco stores and retailers, Shell stated. Consumers must link their participating grocer or other retailer loyalty card to their FRN account to combine their rewards for more fuel savings in select markets.
"Shell knows more consumers are looking for a smart loyalty rewards program that can help them save money at the pump without having to jump through hoops or sacrifice their quality of fuel," said Dan Little, marketing manager for Shell North American Fuels. "That's why teaming up with Excentus on this revolutionary rewards program is so exciting because it empowers Chicagoland consumers to never pay full price at the pump again."
The FRN program is currently available in more than 100 U.S. markets, with plans to expand to nearly 200 coast-to-coast markets by the end of 2012.
"Excentus is excited to introduce the outstanding savings potential of the Fuel Rewards Network program to Chicagoland consumers," said Dickson Perry, chairman and CEO of Excentus. "By teaming up with Shell, local consumers who participate in our program will be able to set their own price for high-quality fuel simply by choosing to buy the things they normally buy through one of our participating retailers and programs. These are trying times for many families, and we're proud to be able to offer relief through the Fuel Rewards Network program."
