Fry’s Fuel Points Program Explained ~ Gas Stations: Shell, Circle K, Fry’s

Updated:  May 2016.

First … go load this double fuel points coupon.  It’s good for whenever you shop at Fry’s Friday – Sunday, through July 31.  It’s a great way to maximize your fuel points!

Here’s all you need to know about Fry’s Fuel Points!

I learned something new, as I was reading the fine print, so read on!

Most of you are probably pros with the Fry’s fuel points, but did you know the last two bullet points?  It’s also explained in last paragraph.  I bet many of you didn’t.  It’s tricky and could cost you, if you don’t!

You can use your fuel points at Fry’s, Shell, or Circle K as stations.  Here’s a link to their full program details, but I’ll summarize them below.

Earning points:

  • 1 point for every dollar you spend
    (more points than out of pocket cost with coupons, not sure of formula)
  • 50 points for every non-federally funded prescription filled
  • double points on qualifying gift card purchases
    (excludes Fry’s, Mastercard, etc.)
  • each month total resets
  • no limit on how many points earned
  • occasional promotions to earn bonus points
  • NEW (July 2015)  Switch to Liberty Mutual and get points!  Read more here.

Redeeming points:

  • use VIP card at Fry’s, Shell, or Circle K (or key in alternate #)
    (Fry’s has scanners for small keychain cards, others don’t)
  • 10¢ per gallon discount for every 100 points you accumulate
  • maximum redemption is 1,000 pts. ($1 off per gallon) at a time
  • use during current month earned or following month only
  • discount for up to 35 gallons of gas per redemption
  • automatically get highest discount at Shell or Circle K
    (can’t change, even if want to use lower discount from previous month that expires sooner)
  • can choose point amount to redeem at Fry’s stations
    (choose amount less than or equal to oldest points and they will be redeemed before new ones)

The last two bullet points can be important.  BE CAREFUL and make sure you understand it!  If you have 20¢ off from January and 30¢ off from February, you will automatically get the 30¢ off at Shell or Circle K if you redeem in February.  The 20¢ discount will still be there, but may expire before you use them.  Don’t assume that because you saved 30¢ per gallon that you used up your oldest points, that are about to expire.  You didn’t!  The only way to redeem those before the most recently earned points is by going to a Fry’s station and manually changing the amount.  If you make it less than or equal to what you earned the first month, it will automatically take those first.

If I’m confusing you, you can read their fine print and examples.  I think I just confused myself, but I’m not sure they will make it any clearer.  :)

Update:  The giveaway has ended, but all the fuel rewards information is still accurate and good information, so read on!  Congrats to Michelle A!  Thanks to everyone who entered!

    I have received from frys on 11-19-2014 a coupon that is “300 bonus fuel points”
    but I can not find the coupon anywhere in my compute, and I did sign up for the
    reward. I do really need help to receive these points. If you could help me in any
    way, I would be so happy.
    Thanks for your time.

    • Juli says:

      Hi, Albert! I don’t worth for Fry’s and have no idea how to help you. :( I’d give their customer service a call tomorrow, if I was you. 1-866-221-4141
      Hope they can get it figured out for you!

  • Patrick Gromek says:

    I currently have 263 points for this month (Jan 2015) and 202 carry over from December and I’m told they’re being “rejected” at my local Circle K’s.

    This has happened before. I’ve lost four or five fuel stops last year (2014) because the system won’t take my card.

    My entry ID number is: 660-262-124-59-9-133

    My phone number is 520 803 0931.

  • Patrick Gromek says:

    Awaiting a reply on why I’m losing hundreds (thousands) of Fry Fuel points. (Sent 24 Jan 15).

  • Molly says:

    Can you use a Fry’s card for nothing but gas and still get enough points to save at the pump?

    • Juli says:

      No, you only earn points on non-gas purchases. Your VIP card is only used to track the use of your points, not earning them.

  • Jessie says:

    Where is the survey?

    • Juli says:

      So sorry for the late reply on this. It got lost in my inbox. :( Not every receipt has them, but if you have the opportunity for the fuel bonus, you’ll see a message at the bottom of your Fry’s receipt, for 50 bonus fuel points. Then, you’ll go to the link below (will tell you where on receipt, too) and fill out a survey. It takes a few days, but you’ll be credited 50 pts, eventually. http://www.krogerfeedback.com/

      Start looking for the survey invitations and save a bunch!

  • June says:

    How does the “limit of one 50 point fuel bonus every 7 days ” work?
    When does the 7 days begin… date on receipt… date I enter to my account…or, 7 days AFTER the 50 points are posted to my account by Fry’s ?

    Is this a glitch or planned marketing idea…IF, the 7 days wait time starts when Fry’s posts to my account, then I may have already waited 5+ days from my entry, then the 7 days wait time…So, you can possibly be waiting well over 12 days, in some cases, to make another entry…when the receipt clearly states a 7 day waiting period.
    So, can you please post the information on this 7 day limit??
    Thanks for listening…

    • Gina says:

      Those are all excellent questions June, and ones we have wondered. We don’t have the exact answers, so we will email our corporate/advertising contact and see if they can help. We’ll keep you posted on what they tell us. Thanks! ~ Gina

    • J says:

      Wonder too when the 7 day starts..sun to sat or when from the date I decided to do the survey. Hopefully Gina gets some clarification :)

    • J says:

      This is posted at the end of survey, if it helps any:

      Fuel points will be loaded onto your card within 5 days of completing the survey. Please allow a minimum of 24 hours for processing, then log onto your account online or through the mobile app to see your fuel point balance. Fuel points will be posted according to the date they are processed, not the date of the survey.

      Limit one 50 fuel point bonus per 7 days.

      • Juli says:

        I guess, if you go by their “minimum of 24 hours processing,” you could MAYBE take a survey every 8 days. ??? But, what if it takes 48? Does that mean you need to wait 9 days? How do you know? I’m not even sure if they’re saying the processing and posting are different or the processing can take up to 5 days. If they’re different, who knows when “processing” occurred? Minimally, if they’re the same, you’d have to keep checking to see when your points post — a pain!

        …. unless it’s 7 days from date taken to date taken again. This is the only thing that would seem to be fair and make sense, to me. But, I’m just me and Fry’s didn’t consult me before beginning this program. And, I don’t claim to always be the sharpest tack in the box, when I read fine print. :) I tend to over-think and analyze things like this since I want to be 100% sure I’m giving people accurate information. So … we’ll hope to hear back from Fry’s soon . . . then I won’t have to think or even guess anymore! :)

        Thanks for the fine print!
