The other evening, after pulling into my driveway after another long day in the car, I started to wonder how much I spend on gas every week. After starting my gas-pump-tally, I decided not to figure it out. I knew it would only depress me, because it's a lot of money. More money than I care to spend on gasoline.
With gas prices constantly skyrocketing, it's important for everyone to consider different ways to save on gas. While the easy way to save is not to drive, that is not a reality for many of us.
I imagine my kids would be very disgruntled if I told them we were no longer signing up for football, baseball, gymnastics or clubs. Oh, and no more playdates unless we have them at our house.
A simpler (and more sane) solution to gas prices is joining the Fuel Rewards Network™ program - or FRN™ program. The FRN program is free and easy to join, and if you drive as much as I do, it can save you plenty on gas. You can sign up online, or stop in any Shell station to receive your card. Once you have your card, and your account set up, you can start saving on gas every time you hit the pump. Members save on average $0.31/gallon on fuel (according to fuelrewards.com on 5/6/13). Over the course of the year, that REALLY adds up.
My favorite part of the Fuel Rewards Network program is that your fuel rewards aren't limited to money you spend at Shell stations. You can link your participating grocery cards, shop online, dine out and more, all to up your gas savings. I was thrilled to realize that as I'm stocking up on my weekly groceries, eating out with Hubby, and buying gifts, I am also saving on gasoline.
Pretty cool. Definitely a win-win.
Visit the Fuel Rewards Network program to sign up, or visit their Facebook page for more information. Happy saving!
