To help you cover the cost of gas this summer, we’re increasing your Shell fuel rewards up to 50 cents a gallon, starting July 1. Wherever you’re headed, we want to help you get there — whether it’s shuttling the kids to camp, enjoying the warm weather at a picnic, or making extra earnings on the road.
How to redeem fuel rewards
The more rides you provide, the more you will save. Lyft and Shell are doubling the $0.05/gallon reward currently provided to the majority of active drivers to $0.10/gallon. For those of you who have achieved Platinum or Gold status as part of the Accelerate program, your savings will increase seven and five times, respectively. Fuel savings for Platinum level drivers increase from $0.07/gallon to $0.50/gallon, and savings for Gold drivers increase from $0.05/gallon to $0.25/gallon.
"We care about our drivers and their take-home earnings. Drivers are on the road a lot over the summer, and it's important for us to provide them financial relief for rising gas prices. The seasonal spike was the number one pain point shared with our Driver Advisory Council and at feedback sessions with our team this past week, and we're addressing it.” - Jon McNeill, Lyft COO.
To redeem your new rewards, you’ll need to create a Shell Fuel Rewards account and link it to your Lyft account. Not sure where to get started? We’ll walk you through it here. Already receiving fuel rewards? Then there’s no action required: your new rewards will go into effect automatically.
If you haven’t signed up for the Fuel Rewards program, you will receive a one-time $0.25/gallon savings (up to 20 gallons) for your first fill-up once you’ve activated your account. For all additional visits to the pump, you will receive the higher rewards.
