New from InterContinental Hotels: Discounts on Gas

IHG Rewards Club, the loyalty program of the InterContinental Hotels Group, today introduced a new benefit for its members, Fuel Rewards, which entitles users to discounts of up to 7 cents a gallon at Shell stations.

The per-gallon discount depends on the member’s elite status, as follows:

  • 5-cent discount for Club and Gold elite members
  • 6-cent discount for Platinum elite members
  • 7-cent discount for Spire elite members

To take advantage of the discounts, IHG Rewards Club members first link their IHG accounts to the Fuel Rewards program. Then, at the pump, after selecting “Fuel Rewards” as the form of payment, they swipe their Fuel Rewards card or key in an Alt ID before inserting a credit or debit card to finish the transaction.

There are around 14,000 Shell stations in the U.S., 13,500 of which participate in Fuel Rewards.

The discounts aren’t enormous. But they apply to a recurring purchase, so the potential savings over the course of a year could be considerable. Fill ‘er up!
