Notes on collecting and redeeming fuel reward points for maximum value
I was filling up the Hyundai Tucson tester the other night and realized I have just about 400,000 Petro Points! I’d forgotten about how many Reward Points I’d collected, until the gas station attendant said “holy geez, you’ve got a pile of points”, and tried to have me cash some in on a fuel-saving card.
Fuel-saving cards are nice, because they save you money on fuel– but they aren’t always the best value going for your hard-earned fuel points. It all reminded me of a piece wrote for www.AutoTrader.ca a few months back, highlighting the points programs available at three major gas stations (Shell, Esso and Petro Canada), and some of the best ways to redeem points at each one.
