IHG just formed a partnership with the Fuel Rewards program which means you get to save money on gas! If you are not familiar with IHG Hotels they own Kimpton, Holiday Inn. Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, and more. With this program, IHG Rewards Club members at any level get to save money every time they fill their tank at participating Shell gas stations. You can sign up here for a Fuel Rewards account here which is a free account. You already get 3 cents a gallon savings on your Fuel Rewards program so this extra 5+ cents could be 8+ cents a gallon on fuel.
The fuel savings will depend on your status with IHG:
- 5 cents per gallon everyday savings for Club and Gold Elite members
- 6 cents per gallon everyday savings for Platinum Elite members (see below on how to get automatic Platinum status!)
- 7 cents per gallon everyday savings for Spire Elite
Automatic Platinum Status with IHG
The IHG Rewards Club Select credit card gives you automatic Platinum status so you get 6 cents per gallon just by owning this credit card from Chase. The annual fee for the card is only $49 which is hugely cheap because you get a FREE hotel night each year once you pay the fee. $49 for a free hotel room and 6 cents a gallon off Gas! This sounds like too good of a deal and it is so you better take advantage of it while it lasts!
The program is free to join and you can start saving money on your gas purchases immediately with a bonus offer of 25 cents a gallon when you sign up here. Another tip on saving money at Shell gas stations is to look out for T-Mobile Tuesday offers here each week where they give away 25 cents a gallon off from time to time.
