OH MY GOSH THIS IS HUUUUUUGE!!!
I just found out that PUBLIX is now added into the Shell Fuel Reward Network!!
I know that many of you were VERY disappointed to hear that Winn Dixie was ending the Shell fuel rewards program at the end of this month and going with Plenti. Since many of us combined the fuel rewards with the Publix Gas Card deals by selecting a Shell Gas Card it seemed like this would be a big bummer. But ONCE AGAIN Publix has come through for us! YIPPEE!!
Here’s the Nitty Gritty:
earn 15¢ PER GALLON when you shop at Publix, Aldi, Save A Lot, Fresh Market +
- FIRST you need to CLICK HERE and sign up for Shell Fuel Rewards
- NEW MEMBERS get 25¢ off per gallon on your 2nd fill up just for signing up (limited time)!
- Once you are signed up you need to complete your profile including your address so that they know which stores are close to you that qualify
- There are a BUNCH of stores and businesses that participate, you can view them online OR you can text APP to #83835 to download their app and get personalized suggestions based on your location!
Don’t forget about your PUBLIX GAS CARD DEALS!
When Publix offers their $10 off a $50 Gas Card Deal, make SURE you select a SHELL CARD to maximize your savings! Not only will you get $10 off that gas card when you buy it at Publix (during Gas Card Week), but you will ALSO be able to use any fuel perks that you have from your NEW SHELL REWARDS ACCOUNT to get your gas even cheaper! This really adds up!
This is the IMPORTANT part:
Right now, in order to qualify for the fuel perks at Publix you will NEED to link a MasterCard Debit or Credit Card to your Shell Rewards account.
Basically, the easiest way to explain this is that you will want to use your MasterCard Debit or Credit card at Publix when you buy your groceries. When you do that it will automatically tell Shell that you bought something and your fuel perks will be credited accordingly. For each $100 spent you get $.15 in fuel perks!
Before you make your first purchase at Publix (after you have signed up for your Shell Rewards Here) you will want to go into your account and LINK that MasterCard to your Rewards account so that it credits properly.
*NOTE: I do NOT have a MasterCard Credit Card, BUT I do have a MasterCard Debit from Paypal, years ago I requested it (free, no fees) and when I use the card it automatically deducts it out of my paypal balance or withdraws it from my regular checking account. That is something you can look into if you don’t have a MasterCard either.
Hopefully at some point they will allow ANY linked card to qualify, but for now you must use a MasterCard at Publix to earn the fuel rewards. If you don’t have a MasterCard and don’t want to get a new credit card (I didn’t) you can go to Walmart and grab a prepaid debit card (make sure it is MasterCard) to use while shopping at Publix. Once you have your card ready, just sign into your Shell Rewards Account and link your card to your account. It will automatically add the fuel perks to your Shell Rewards Account when you use that MasterCard at Publix (or other stores)!
There are TONS of ways to earn points towards gas at Shell and most of them are simply by using a LINKED CARD to your Shell Rewards Account. I went ahead and linked my most frequently used debit cards so that I don’t have to think about which card I have linked later.
Your linked cards DO NOT have to be a MasterCard to earn points, but right now it MUST be a Mastercard to earn points specifically at Publix.
It might take a little bit to get used to this new program, but I am VERY EXCITED! Let me know what you think!!
Thanks Amanda Cothren for your heads up in our chat group about this!
