Shell app: Spend $30, get 1,000 Membership Rewards points

A new Amex Offer is out today that’s good for Shell gas stations in the US: Spend $30+ via the Shell app, get 1,000 Membership Rewards points (or there is likely a $10 statement credit version). For those on T-Mobile, this will make for a nice stack with the weekly discount of $0.10 per gallon (and the $0.03 you get just for being a Shell Fuel Rewards member.

The Deal

  • A new Amex Offer is out that’s good for 1,000 Membership Rewards points (or potentially a $10 statement credit depending on your offer) after spending $30+ at Shell gas stations in the US by using the Shell app

Key Terms

  • Expires 5/13/20
  • Must use the Shell app
  • See your offer for full terms

Quick Thoughts

Keep in mind that the terms indicate that you’ll need to use the Shell app to trigger this offer.

This is a nice return on a fill-up if you have a Shell nearby. I do not have a Shell near me, but I’m on my way to New York City for the weekend and could easily stop at a Shell to fill up along the way. Ironically, I think this is the first time I’ve forgotten to sync the T-Mobile Tuesdays offer for $0.10 off per gallon (which stacks on top of the usual member discount for a total of $0.13 off per gallon), so I guess I’ll be holding off for another opportunity to take advantage of stacking the offers.

While I imagine there is also a $10 statement credit version of this offer, we only found the Membership Rewards version on our cards. That’s OK with me as I value the points at greater than $0.01 each anyway.

I hesitate to take advantage of theseoffersv that require using an app.
Would be great if you could explain how the technology challenged! Thanks!


Problem is, app does not let you add the card, only Samsung Pay or Google Pay

After reading your post I searched all my Amex cards to see if I was targeted for this offer. None of my 7 personal or 2 business cards were targeted. Is there any behavior one can do to potentially receive more targeted offers?


Got the $10 version on Gold card. In the app, can add to Chase and Apple Pay (but not the CC card itself). Will try adding AMEX to Apple Pay and give it a shot!


I chatted with both Shell and Amex. Shell said their app works as it should. Amex said it should work if you add their card to a third party wallet since there is no small print saying you cannot (unlike other Amex promos). Hope they are right.
