PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Now paying less for fuel is more than just a dream, it is a reality for Fuel Rewards Network™ (FRN) Members. Since the Fuel Rewards Network™ program launch in June 2012, drivers across the country have saved more than $100 million on high quality fuel at Shell 1. And now, through an everyday offer, Shell, the No. 1 selling gasoline brand in the U.S., and the Fuel Rewards Network program will give FRN™ Members across the country and in Portland instant savings at the pump by taking a minimum of 3 cents off per gallon instantly on every fill-up at participating Shell-branded stations.
While the 3 cents per gallon savings is an exciting new offer, the Fuel Rewards Network program offers a variety of ways to earn rewards to save even more at the pump. FRN Members in Portland can take as much as one, two, three dollars or more off per gallon on their fuel purchases just by using the FRN program, with FRN Members saving on average 26 cents per gallon on their purchases of all grades of Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines. And some really savvy FRN Members have paid as little as one cent per gallon 2.
"FRN Members are experiencing the ease of earning rewards on items they are already buying, then combining those rewards for tangible fuel savings," says Jim Perkins, North American Marketing Alliance Manager. "More than 44 percent of FRN Members are new Shell customers who can now see their money-saving goals become a reality by paying less for fuel at Shell. In April, we announced the program's national availability in nearly 200 cities coast-to-coast; and we are pleased to report that the FRN program is available at 160 participating Shell stations in Portland where FRN Members can take advantage of the program."
The FRN program goes beyond traditional loyalty programs by providing consumers with multiple opportunities to earn Fuel Rewards ® savings. The following ways to save are available to Portland consumers:
- Shop Online: Access nearly 700 brand name online merchants offering at least 5 cents per gallon for every $50 you spend. Some may offer 2x, 5x, 10x rewards or more to multiply savings!
