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...
