Shell Oil Co. and PDI, the management software company in charge of the Fuel Rewards program, have announced AAdvantage, the American Airlines loyalty program, is joining the Fuel Rewards program as its first airline partner. The addition of AAdvantage means that its members will now be able to earn two AAdvantage miles for every gallon of fuel they purchase at Shell.
AAdvantage members who join Fuel Rewards will also receive 100 AAdvantage miles after joining and making their first fill-up at Shell.
“Covid has changed a lot about travel, but with some light at the end of the tunnel, we know many people are anxiously awaiting and even planning for their next trip,” said Greg Lemen, director loyalty partnerships and new business development for Shell Retail US.
Shell and American wanted to partner together to help travelers make the most of that trip by allowing them to earn airline miles with every fill-up at their local Shell.
