A California woman showed a crowd of spectators how to battle rising gas prices last month by rolling back the price of fuel to less than 11 cents per gallon. The manager of Main Street Shell Service in Santa Maria, California demonstrated how to use the Shell Fuel Rewards Network to drastically reduce the price of gas by simply purchasing products online and dining out with friends. The 20 gallon fill-up of her Ford truck totaled a mere $2.18. The Fuel Rewards Network program is free to join and offers a number of ways to accumulate rewards points which can be used to drop the price of gas at the pump.
The manager of a Shell gas station in Santa Maria, California paid less than 11 cents per gallon and filled her Ford truck with 20 gallons of premium gasoline for a grand total of only $2.18. The deeply discounted fill-up took place on June 13th at Main Street Shell Service in Santa Maria, California after the woman had accumulated an enormous savings by participating in the Shell Fuel Rewards Network (FRN) program. With a local radio station standing by, a group of onlookers watched as she inserted her FRN card into the card reader. To everyone’s amazement, the price for a gallon of premium gasoline plunged from $4.35 to 10.9 cents per gallon. One man in the crowd could be heard saying, “this is definitely something I don’t see everyday”.
When asked how she was able to amass such an incredible savings, the Shell station manager replied, “I did it by shopping online and eating at restaurants that participate in the program. If I need something from Home Depot or Sears, I just order it through the FRN Online Mall and when I get to the store they already have it ready for me. A lot of the online stores will also give you double the rewards or more”. The station manager’s FRN online statement showed a list of transactions that confirmed exactly how she was able to stockpile such a gigantic savings. Fuel Rewards were earned by making purchases at a number of online stores including Target.com, OfficeDepot.com, HomeDepot.com, 1-800-Flowers.com, and Sears.com. A handful of visits to a local restaurant also contributed to the massive price rollback at the gas pump.
With gas prices currently on the rise again, the FRN program is definitely one option that may be appealing to those who have had to tighten their belts. The program offers Fuel Rewards for shopping online, dining out, buying groceries, and more. Currently, all new FRN card accounts are pre-loaded with an automatic savings of 3 cents per gallon. FRN cards can be ordered online or picked up at participating Shell stations and there is no cost to join the program. For more information about the Shell FRN program, visit www.fuelrewards.com.
