I love the new FRN program at Shell. I make quite a few purchases at Home Depot on line and they reward me with $$ rewards so last night I purchased a MAXIMUM 20 gallons @ .109/gallon for a WHOPPING total of $2.10. Now that is rolling back prices I like to see!

Go to fuel rewards.com. there are a list of grocery stores that are part of the program. Every fifty dollars you spend your earn five cents. The stores may also have certain items that will earn you gas discounts as well. There are store you can shop from only online like target, bass pro shop, and macys and every fifty earns you from five to fifteen cents and some of those store with double your rewards. I just went grocery shopping and spent $151and earned 35cents off per gallon up twenty gallons.

I agree...it is not like it happens all the time and I THINK the $$ on the FRN is good for 3 months (PLEASE CHECK) after it is accrued. So it is just a little something if you plan ahead and doesn't cost anything. It sure was nice to get a 20 gallons for $2.10..I kept the receipt and put it on my Facebook.

It is a shame we can't all do that all of the time.

Gas Buddy, you're missing the point. If you have to make the purchases anyway, why not do it though a program that offers rewards for those purchases at no extra cost? It's just like the discount programs that some grocery store chains offer, except is available at a much larger option of retailers, as well as restaurants.

The point isn't to go out and make useless purchases to get a discount, it's to use what you would buy everyday anyway to accumulate gas discounts.

.. Any scheme to avoid actually lowering the price of gasoline... although we actually have 13 stations under $3/gallon right now around here...

.. I don't shop Home Depot anymore, because Menard's has the newest home centers around town here now, so it has the lowest prices... although Lowe's is always so damned glad to see a customer actually walk into one of their stores these days... the store clerks act like they want to kiss you...

If a person was a contractor or making xmas purchases, it is a great opportunity to save some dough on gasoline

Home Depot can be pricey, it depends on what you buy.

well it is simple to understand except for skeptics. If I need to buy something anyway, why not do it through FRN website and links to the retailer such as Bass Pro, Home Depot,Sears, Lowes, etc. I am not going out to spend $1000 so I can save $2 but if I have to buy something then I just plan on doing it online.

I'm probably naive but how is having to make "quite a few purchases at Home Depot on line"and getting discount on up to 20 gallons of gas "rolling back prices"?

Second, you don't think that you're getting this discount simply because you spent money at Home Depot and they didn't make a profit that offsets the "roll back" (to use your words) at the gas pump, do you? And you don't think that Home Depot isn't still making a profit on the "quite a few purchases" you make, do you?

Tell us when you get a "rolling back prices" without having to make "quite a few purchases at Home Depot". Then you can brag.

I've been using it for a few months and so far I'm happy. I figured that groceries would cost me more shopping at winn dixie than sweet bay, but with all the buy one get one free they have I spend the same amount and get more. Wishyou didn't have to shop online though to earn points
