Shell makes it easier for consumers to save at the pumpShell recognizes that consumers are concerned with rising prices at the pump and want the most value for their money. Since 2009, Shell has been teaming up with many of the nation's leading grocers to make it easier for consumers to save on high-quality fuels at Shell by redeeming their grocery loyalty card rewards at the pump. And, today Shell has alliances with leading grocers in more than 130 markets coast-to-coast, so it's never been easier for consumers to save at the pump. All they need to do is make qualifying purchases at participating grocery stores by using their existing loyalty rewards card and they earn rewards that can be redeemed at participating Shell stations.
Shell also wants to remind drivers that they can save at the pump by using one of the many Shell payment options designed to address the diverse financial needs of today's consumers. Credit cards, such as the Shell
Drive for Five
Card, allow cardholders the opportunity to save
per gallon on all three grades of the NEW Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines as well as Shell Diesel. The Shell $aver Card
is another option that links directly to the cardholder's checking account, providing a hassle free way to save at the pump without incurring fees.
