Here's How You Can Get $80 in Shell Gas for $45.24 (Expires Soon!)

Right now at Groupon, you can pre-pay for $80 worth of gas for $52:  that's a 35% discount on the price of gas.  To sweeten the deal, Ebates is offering 9% back on deals at Groupon today, saving you another $4.68.   Since Winn-Dixie (and some other supermarkets) gives a 4% rebate towards Shell gas when you purchase a gift card, I bought Groupon gift cards there first.  This saved me another $2.08.  I also receive 5 Hilton Honors points for every $1 I spend on my American Express, so each deal (I bought 8 deals) earned me 260 Hilton Honors points.

Bottom Line:  for $80 in gas, I paid $45.24 and received 260 HHonors Points
Note:  The gas is rewarded as $1 off per gallon up to 20 gallons.  I use gas cans when I fill up to guarantee I get the full benefit of this offer.  ETA:  After calling Fuel Rewards, the cards were added to my account in such a way that I am not limited to just redeeming $1 per 20 gallons.  I can stack these cards, so if gas costs $2/gallon, I can redeem $2 off per gallon for up to 20 gallons.


  1. That's a great deal. Since there isn't a Shell convenient to me and several other reasons it would have been too much of a hassle for me to do this deal. I love being able to stack discounts on gas. I'm not driving a lot of miles right now so there isn't too much money to be saved on gas. If that changes I'll be looking for deals like this one.

    1. I drive so many miles between Uber, Amazon and mystery shopping that I should really benefit from this. If my jobs didn't involve driving I've been thinking about whether I even need to own a car. Would be nice to get rid of it one day.

  2. Oh, thanks for the tip! I think it's cool when you can get a discount. For example, when I saw discounts I immediately decided to purchase some of the hardest essays for my uni there. And I wasn't disappointed. Not always discounts mean that the goods are bad. Sometimes they are made just for us to save our money)
