Rides: Fuel Rewards and the "Little Things" that make Life Better...

Written by

THE ROCK FATHER Magazine is a #ShellCrowd #FuelRewards Brand Ambassador, taking part in a special content series with SocialStars and Shell.

There's certain things you occasionally come across that are just worth sharing (regardless of whether you're getting paid for it, #RockFatherStyle). Fuel Rewards is one such thing, and when I first shared some information on it, I focused on how easy it is to sign-up (for free!), and to start earning rewards that convert into legit savings at the pump. Easy steps like linking a credit card to your account (MasterCard preferred) earn bonuses, and new members get a 25¢ per gallon bonus on their 2nd fill-up. You use that same card for daily purchases and dining, and the points add up. Prime example - I took the Equniox to Shell the other night for a fill-up, and saved 30¢ per gallon. Check out the picture below... if you can see it, the pump says $1.39, while the sign at the road says $1.69. Fuel Rewards turned into real savings. But what do you do with the money that you save?

Fuel Rewards

By saving a few bucks with each fill-up, I look at that as my daily spend - little things that make life more enjoyable. It could be a cup of coffee here and there... a pop... or as is the case for me right now, we've reached the season where each year, a tiny Leprechaun shows up and tells me that I must continue my lifelong tradition to stop by a certain restaurant for a green mint milkshake in honor of St. Patrick's Day. A few bucks saved is a few bucks earned, or so the saying sorta goes, right?

That money earned can also fuel things like movie tickets... a dinner out... and here at Rock Father HQ, our TOY addiction! Or, you could just save all that money and let it pile up at home to be admired...

Well, maybe not THAT much cash, but it doesn't hurt to keep the dream alive.
