Companies that offer gas rewards programs include Exxon, Shell, BP, Fuel Rewards Network and even credit card companies. Each program has a different set of requirements and rewards that it offers to consumers.
The ExxonMobil rewards program offers customers the opportunity to accumulate points by shopping at participating Exxon and Mobil convenience stores and gas stations. The ExxonMobil program has also partnered with Randalls, Tom Thumb and Safeway to provide customers with additional opportunities to earn points. The points customers earn at these stores can be used to decrease the price per gallon paid on gas purchases.
Gas rewards programs that are linked to credit cards work a little differently. These programs give consumers the ability to earn cash back based on the amount spent on gas purchases. The cash back is generally a percentage of the purchase price and is awarded as a statement credit to the consumer's account. Some programs that give consumers a certain amount of points per dollar spent at specific types of stories. The consumer can then redeem these points for merchandise, gift cards or cash back. The exact terms of each gas program vary based on the credit card with which it is associated.
