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

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
