MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 20, 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 a special limited-time 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 Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis 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 28¢/gal per gallon on their
purchases of all grades of Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines. And some really
savvy FRN Members have paid as little as $0.01 per gallon[2].

Consumers can save even more at the pump with additional deals offered at some
participating Shell stations in Minneapolis. Visit the following Shell station
locations in Minneapolis for the chance to earn 5 cents per gallon with the
purchase of any size fountain or coffee beverage:

  oEmma's Express LLC – 11966 59^th Place NE, Albertville, MN 55301
  oWinnetka Shell – 7900 Bass Lake Rd, New Hope, MN 55428
  oMidnite Market – 5 6^th Ave S., Hopkins, MN 55343

"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 forty four
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 66 participating Shell stations in Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis consumers:

  oShop 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!
  oDine Out: Link a payment card to the Dining program and earn 10 cents per
    gallon for every $50 you spend at participating restaurants in the
    Minneapolis area, including the Rail Station Bar and Grill, Zelo, Urban

  oShop at Shell: Purchase specially marked products inside the convenience
    store as well as car washes or auto services at participating Shell

continue to evolve the FRN program to not just meet this need but help
consumers see a real difference when they fill up," said Dickson Perry,
Founder, Chairman and CEO of Excentus, provider of the Fuel Rewards Network
