Fred Meyer, QFC And Shell Team Up To Offer Savings Of Up To $1 Per Gallon At The Pump

PORTLAND, Ore., March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fred Meyer, QFC and Shell are expanding their fuel points program in Idaho, Oregon and Washington. Beginning April 1, Fred Meyer and QFC customers in these three states will be able to save up to $1 per gallon at the pump by redeeming their fuel points at any Fred Meyer or QFC Fuel Center, and at participating Shell stations.   

Previously, customers could only redeem 100 fuel points each time they filled up, for 10 cents off per gallon per fill-up. Under the new program, customers at Fred Meyer and QFC fuel centers can redeem some or all of their fuel points, whichever they choose. For example, if a customer has 400 fuel points he or she can choose to redeem 100, 200, 300 or all 400 fuel points for a discount of 10, 20, 30 or 40 cents off per gallon at Fred Meyer and QFC fuel centers, up to $1 off per gallon at the pump if the customer has at least 1,000 fuel points. This offer is valid for up to 35 gallons of fuel on one vehicle per purchase.

The up-to- $1 per gallon savings is also available at participating Shell stations and customers will use all their fuel points per transaction at the participating Shell stations. This offer is also valid for up to 35 gallons of fuel per purchase. Other restrictions may apply.

"Our customers have continued to tell us that the convenience and price of fuel is an important part of why they shop with us," said Melinda Merrill, spokesperson for Fred Meyer and QFC. "We have worked hard over the past few years to build convenient fuel centers, and we are pleased to offer this added discount to our loyal customers."

"By teaming up with Fred Meyer and QFC, Shell is able to provide customers increased value and savings on their fuel purchases," said Dan Little, North America fuels marketing manager, Shell Oil Products U.S. "And with Fred Meyer and QFC stores and participating Shell stations conveniently located throughout Idaho, Oregon and Washington, it's never been easier for these customers to be able to save on high-quality Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines."

Here's how it works: Customers earn one fuel point for every dollar spent on qualifying items when they use their Fred Meyer Rewards Card or QFC Advantage Card during shopping trips at Fred Meyer and QFC stores. To help shoppers build up their savings quickly, customers also earn 50 Fuel Points by purchasing eligible prescriptions (patients on Medicare, Medicaid or receiving any other government aid on prescriptions are not eligible for points) and double fuel points for  every dollar spent on most third-party gift cards from the in-store Gift Card Malls (for a list of gift card restrictions visit or Fuel points are automatically added and are reflected on customers' receipts after every purchase. Customers also have the option of looking online at or at or on their smartphone app to check how many fuel points they have earned. Fuel points must be used during the month they are earned or by the end of the following calendar month.

Customers with questions related to the fuel points program can call QFC Customer Service at 1-877-732-2494, Fred Meyer Customer Service at 1-866-518-2686, or contact Shell Customer Service at 1-888-GO-SHELL for details and participating locations.
