About the Shell Saver Card
The Shell Saver Card is a non-credit payment product exclusive to Shell that links directly to cardholders' checking accounts and offers savings at the pump. While Shell Saver Card earnings apply only to gasoline and diesel purchases, the card can be used for any purchases at Shell-branded stations except lottery tickets. Through Telecheck® and the use of personal PIN numbers, the Shell Saver Card offers safety mechanisms that enhance consumer security. Since the Shell Saver Card directly links to a checking account, applying for the card does not affect consumer credit scores, nor are there any application or annual fees.
The Shell Saver Card makes organizing family budgets easier by using one card that lists all Shell fuel purchases and offers cardholders earnings every time it is used, allowing consumers to get the most out of every drop of Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines.
From gasoline cards to credit cards, the Shell Family of Cards addresses the diverse financial needs of today's consumers with a range of payment options. For more information about the Shell Saver Card and the Shell Family of Cards, visit www.shell.us/cards.
