I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same).
Chase Sapphire Reserve and Chase Sapphire Preferred Card cardmembers are eligible for instant Fuel Rewards Gold status through the end of 2018.
That’s good for 5 cents off per gallon at Shell stations. (Base membership in the free program saves 3 cents per gallon.)
The offer was already available for Chase Freedom and Freedom Unlimited cardmembers.
Joining the program will get you 3 months of Gold status, this is better since you’ll have it through the end of the year. And there’s no requirement to actually pay for the gas with a Chase Sapphire card. You can use a card that bonuses gas like Citi ThankYou Premier which is back with an offer to earn 50,000 bonus points.
IHG Rewards Club gives you Fuel Rewards status with even more savings for elites: IHG Platinum elite members members get 6 cents off, Spire Elites 7 cents off.
Once a member of fuel rewards you can stack savings earned with other activities as well.
