LAS VEGAS, July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As gas prices continue to rise at a steady incline this summer, Caesars Entertainment's award-winning Total Rewards loyalty program is providing members everyday benefits where it matters most: fuel savings.
Starting July 22, 2013, the loyalty program will offer members feeling the pinch at the pump new ways to save on fuel through its alliance with the Fuel Rewards Network™ (FRN) program. Total Rewards members will be able to earn up to 50 cents per gallon monthly in Fuel Rewards® savings.
"Total Rewards is continually seeking ways of creating new benefits for our members. Our alliance with the Fuel Rewards Network program demonstrates Total Rewards' commitment to providing meaningful value to members in their everyday lives," said Tariq Shaukat, Caesars Entertainment Chief Marketing Officer. "By playing at any one of our Total Rewards resorts, members now have the opportunity to save at the pump without impacting their Reward Credits balance. Members can continue to redeem Reward Credits for their favorite leisure activities such as dining, entertainment and hotel accommodations."
When the alliance with the FRN program launches in late-July, Caesars Entertainment, a recognized leader in the loyalty industry, will be the only casino company to offer its guests the opportunity to earn Fuel Rewards savings. Fuel Rewards savings are redeemable at participating Shell stations, which makes the redemption of rewards incredibly convenient as an estimated 85 percent of Americans live within five miles of a Shell station.
"We welcome Caesars Entertainment and its Total Rewards program as our newest participant and offering in the Fuel Rewards Network program," said Dickson Perry, Founder and CEO of Excentus, Provider of the FRN™ program.
"This new rewards offering fits well with our mission of helping our members pay less for fuel every time they fill up while also helping put more fun back in their lives," added Tim Hauser, Chief Member Advocate of the FRN program.
How to join
Total Rewards members can join the free FRN program by visiting fuelrewards.com/totalrewards to sign up for an FRN Account. Once Total Rewards members have created their FRN Accounts, they can link their Total Rewards cards to the FRN program to get started earning Fuel Rewards savings. An FRN Card will be mailed after sign-up and is used to redeem Fuel Rewards savings at participating Shell stations.
Total Rewards members who are already FRN Members can simply log in to their existing FRN Accounts and link their Total Rewards accounts to start redeeming fuel savings even more quickly.
Earning Fuel Rewards savings is easy
Once Total Rewards members have linked their accounts to the FRN program, Fuel Rewards savings will accumulate automatically as Total Rewards members are rewarded for their spend on gaming, hotel stays, dining, entertainment, golf, spa services and more.
Fuel Rewards savings can be redeemed with the FRN Card at participating Shell stations.
