Rewards combine for additional savings-per-gallon
Landover, Md. (June 5, 2017) - Giant Food of Landover, Md. announced today the expansion of its Gas Rewards program by adding the Fuel Rewards® program, an innovative coalition program enabling shoppers to earn fuel savings from participating retailers in addition to points earned through Giant purchases. Starting today, customers may earn additional cents off per gallon from Shell and other retailers that participate in the Fuel Rewards program. Combined fuel savings can be redeemed at Giant and participating Shell stations. Fuel savings can be earned by shopping online, dining out, booking travel and more. For a complete list of participating retailers, customers can visit www.fuelrewards.com.
Through Giant's existing Gas Rewards program, cardholders can enjoy savings from Giant on fuel at Giant and participating Shell gas stations up to $1.50/gallon. By opting in to the Fuel Rewards Program, cardholders can earn and redeem both Fuel Rewards savings and Giant Gas Rewards for larger fuel discounts which can exceed $1.50/gallon. Fuel savings earned through both programs are valid for a one-time use and limited to 20 gallons of fuel per purchase, per vehicle. And, starting today, new and current Fuel Rewards members will automatically be awarded Instant Gold Status, a loyalty tier that allows them to save at least five cents per gallon on every fill up to 20 gallons with any grade of Shell fuel.
