Save 20 cents a gallon at Shell w/ Ralphs card

Ralphs is offering an incredible 20 cents off per gallon of gas when you fill up at Shell stations and use your reward points!

Combine the 20 cents of savings and save about 10 cents per gallon at my favorite Shell station in South El Monte and you are saving big!

This is a really great deal if you fill up the tank when it's empty. 100 rewards points is worth $1 in free groceries at Ralphs. At Shell I buy 17 gallons to fill my car which is a savings of $1.70. During this limited time offer that amount is doubled and I save $3.40!
