For most families, saving money is always a priority. Unfortunately, saving money isn’t easy because as children grow bigger and more children are born, families’ needs grow “bigger and more” too.
Luckily, I recently discovered a way for families to put their need for “bigger and more” to work for them – the Fuel Rewards Network™, or the FRN™ program. By using the FRN™ program you can pay less for fuel at participating Shell stations by earning rewards on all of the things you’re already buying.
Best of all, when you purchase “bigger and more” of these everyday things you’ll save bigger and more on fuel! Which you’re probably buying more of for the bigger vehicle you bought as your family grew bigger and more… Are you seeing a pattern here?
What is the FRN™ program?
The FRN™ program is a way for families to earn rewards by purchasing the things they already use, like food, clothing and household goods. Then the rewards are redeemed for fuel savings at participating Shell stations. Unlike other customer loyalty programs, the FRN™ program lets you combine multiple offers for bigger rewards and more savings at the pump.
How does the FRN™ work?
1. Sign up for the FRN™ program. It’s super easy to sign up; all you need is a free Fuel Rewards Network Card which you can pick up at any participating Shell station. Or request one at fuelrewards.com like I did; it takes just a few minutes, unless you mistype your password like I did. Twice.
If you have an iPhone or Android you can download the FRN Mobile App to sign up and activate your FRN Card. You can also use the App to check your rewards balance, find nearby savings and more.
2. Activate your FRN Card online. Just follow these easy steps:
- Go to fuelrewards.com and click “Sign Up” to activate your FRN Card.
- Select “Fuel Rewards Network” for your card.
- Enter your card number and PIN.
- Follow the steps to complete online enrollment.
3. Start earning Fuel Rewards® savings! This is the easiest step of all because you continue to make the same purchases you already do. There are several ways to shop:
- Shop Online: Access nearly 700 brand name online merchants offering at least 5¢/gal for every $50 you spend. Some may offer 2x, 5x, 10x rewards or more to multiply your savings. Bigger and more!
- Dine Out: Link a payment card to the dining program and earn 10¢/gal for every $50 you spend at 10,000+ participating restaurants nationwide.
- Buy Groceries: Link your local participating grocery store’s rewards card to your FRN Account and earn rewards on your grocery store purchases.
- Get eCoupons: Select eCoupons at fuelrewards.com and earn Fuel Rewards® savings when the eCoupons items are subsequently purchased at participating grocery and drug stores.
- Shop at Shell: Purchase specially marked products inside the convenience store as well as car washes or auto services at participating Shell stations to earn Fuel Rewards savings through the Shell® Fuel Rewards® program.
(All of the above is according to fuelrewards.com on 5/6/13.)

I would benefit from this program because I do a lot of shopping online, and can collect points to save money on gas

I would benefit from the savings on gas because our relatives are all in other states and driving to see them can be very expensive.

I drive roughly 25,000 to 30,000 miles a year or more, so this would benefit me well!

Earn point’s from grocery shopping too
Way to put a positive spin on needing more! It would be excellent to save some money on gas since we were considering a road trip to visit family this summer!
This would benefit me by saving money on my commute to work!
Will help us a lot this summer! we spend way more money on gas during summer.
I would benefit from the Fuel Rewards Network program because my husband has a long commute to work and we have a lot of upcoming trips this summer. It would help us save money so we could enjoy more activities with our kids.
We’ve been taking a ton of trips between NC and MD. At over 260 miles each way! The FRN could definitely take some of the pain at the pump away.

We could benefit from this because we camp a lot during the summer and drive long distances–gas prices are ridiculous right now!
I drive a lot for business and would save an average of 31 cents per gallon. That would greatly add to my bottom line.
We’ll be having a second baby soon, so any way to save would be very welcome! Besides, I’m sure two kids will require lots of trips into town. 🙂

I’d benefit because we put on about 20,000 miles per year.

I would benefit from the savings on gas because we will be traveling a lot this summer.
This really sounds like a great program. My husband and I are on the road often and use lots of fuel. This extra savings would really add up for us.
Thanks so much.

We’d love to get benefits from buying what we already do! Not even sure what we’d get, but the idea is great!
i would benefit because we have to go to columbus almost every weekend and its a 3 hour drive
I shop at Fred Meyer a lot, this would help with road trips this summer!
Just applied for this and got my card a few days ago. Gas is expensive in CA and we drive a lot so major benefits!

With gas prices rising, any cents off a gallon is wonderful especially when you get rewarded by shopping at your favorite stores!
My husband is on the road a hour and a half total each day for work. That is a lot of gas money! He would definitely benefit from the program. Even if it’s just saving a little here and there, it all adds up!
This gas card would definitely help us as we travel from MI to GA to visit family this summer! Thanks!
i drive multiple miles because there is only one person i trust to provide daycare for my child when i am at work and she is 45 minutes away from work so I feel it will help me with that
we’d save money on our roadtrips to visit grandma and grandpa
We have not been on a vacation in years….looking into doing a road trip this summer. The fuel rewards would help us save so much money on our trip…maybe we could even splurge on a hotel for a night or two…rather than camping.
It would benefit me by helping me get more gas for my money, I sure do drive a lot!
I would earn points while grocery shopping.
I think anyone would benefit from this program, even if they just filled up every other week
groogruxking40 at gmail dot com
Hubby and I both drive daily. In addition to daily gas usage, road trips around the country during holidays add up quick too. Fuel Rewards Network program would be very helpful in all cases.

i would love to save money on gas with the rewards network so i could have more money for other things!
My family would benefit from this program as my husband has a long commute to work everyday.
I could save a few pennies to use on other bills
We would benefit from the Fuel Rewards Network program because we drive more and more as the kids get older. Between work, school and other activities we drive over a 100 miles a week. It also seems we drive even more during the summer months with road trips and camps.
My family could benefit from this program because we drive a lot of miles during the week between work and school. It seems we drive even more during the summer with trips to the beach and camps.
id benefit because i drive way more now that i stay at home with my baby so extra savings would be great!
By shopping online like I already do.
Shopping online and dining out
My family would benefit because we all have SUVs, and gas can get expensive!
I like that I’d get rewarded for doing stuff I already do!
with gas prices as they are now, anything you can do to save a little money is a great benefit!
I shop online for props and equipment all the time. It’ll be nice to save some money while I spend. That’s a great benefit for me to have FRN! Can’t wait to sign up.

We’d benefit and save on fuel for long road trips.
Seems like we are driving more and more as the kids get older – I’ll have to check this out.
My husband and I both drive older cars that don’t get good gas mileage. Any saving on gas would be welcome!
I could benefit because I travel for work and put 1000’s of miles on my car each month
This program would be awesome for our super tight budget. A family of eight living in the rural area of Oklahoma uses a lot of gas!
I would benefit from the gas savings for all of the running around I do.
Thanks for the chance to win!

I would benefit because filling up a SUV and a boat all summer can get pretty expensive!
i shop online so this would add to what i already do
Oh our family would benefit by saving money at the gas pumps! With money so tight would be so great! I love that they added shopping and dining as additional ways to get more off!
As a single mom, I am always stressed out when I pull up to the pump! It’s so expensive!
It would help a lot because we have kids to drive to school each day.
It would be awesome to earn by buying groceries too!
Shell is the station I visit most frequently on my way to work.
I would benefit because I have a long commute to work each day!

SAVING MONEY!!!! That is the only benefit here right? Or did I miss something? LOL Seriously though, gas prices are ridiculous AGAIN and anything to take away some of my pump anger would be appreciated!
Save money on gas? Can you say “no brainer”?
Thanks for the contest.
