More Travelers Earn Rewards
Earlier this year, the Fuel Rewards program gained its first airline partner with the addition of AAdvantage, the American Airlines loyalty program. As part of their eligibility, AAdvantage members earn two miles for every gallon of fuel purchased at Shell.
AAdvantage members who join Fuel Rewards will also receive 100 AAdvantage miles after joining and purchasing their first fill-up at Shell.
The Fuel Rewards program, which was named the top Loyalty Program in the Gas and Convenience category of the 2021 Loyalty Report by Bond Brand Loyalty, serves more than 25 million members and has helped them save more than $2 billion on their fuel purchases to-date. As a national coalition loyalty program, Fuel Rewards members earn rewards on everyday purchases from a variety of retailers and can redeem cents-per-gallon rewards at 14,000-plus Shell locations across the United States.
