Slight confusion, kindly readjust for me if you know the answer.

Back few months ago, I made the required Pennzoil Synthetic purchase(s) and submitted online rebate with the option of receiving a check (as I recall it was $10) -or- getting a code for 20 dollars off 20 gallons of gas. Chose the latter option.

It's explained briefly in this link
https://slickdeals.net/f/12098884-2...f-pennzoil-synthetic-motor-oil-5qt-24-55

When the mail arrived with the code, it instructed me to create an account at fuelrewards.com to register the code and since I did not have or want a Shell card, to use my phone at the Shell pump as the ALT-ID.

Letter stated the offer expires 1/11/2019 so yesterday was the last day to get my reward benefit.

When I arrived at the Shell station, followed the pump prompts which 1st asked for reward(s) card or ALT-ID logon, so I entered my phone and it accepted that and next it asked me to insert payment card and so I did that also.

Pump stopped precisely at 20 gallons as I filled up both truck and a 5 gallon container.

Moments later, I received an email from Shell that (paraphrasing) stated that I had saved 0.05 per gallon and a total $1.00

What happened to the $20 off 20 gallons? Total receipt was well over $50 and shows pending on credit card.

I used the same offer. You have to register/attach the code to your account. I do not have a Shell CC (if that is what you mean in your post), but do have a general fuel rewards card and account. It worked flawlessly when I filled our truck up as the credit was already on the account. In other words, prior to filling up, I saw the price per gallon drop by $1.

I saw that rebate too and went for the $10 check which I got in 3 weeks. Way more than $10 worth of trouble for the extra $10 for the fuel rewards. If I wanted to sign up for a credit card (same information required) I could just get one that offered $100 signup bonus instead. I think chase sapphire offers a $400 bonus.

Go to your account on fuelrewards.com and see what it says. Get them to send you a fuel rewards card out and don't fool with a phone at the pump. A bunch of the Pennzoil rebates have needed one. This rebate worked fine for me. I even used a Shell gas card I got at Publix for $10 off. $$$$

I don't see in your explanation where you entered the rebate code that you received in the mail into your newly created FR card account.

From the title I thought you bought 20 gallons of Pennzoil. shocked2 That Ridgeline must put out quite a smokescreen.

When I received the letter with the code I had to add it to my FR account, if it was loaded on your account it should have dropped the fuel price by 1.00 right at the pump. The fact that it sent you the e-mail you must have a registered account with them. The 0.05 discount is probably from having silver status.

The reward code was added to my account. In fact before 1/11/2019 --- a few weeks ago, I deliberately attempted to re-apply the code and fuelrewards.com responded with "this code has already been ...." etc... so it was added correctly when I created my account

Also expected the pump to take instantly off $20 but have now opened a case with fuelrewards.com and they have a copy of the Shell eReceipts which shows full amount billed to my credit card account. Perhaps they will fix it.

Yup, it should have showed $1 off per gallon at the pump.
I got mine and used it with no problems (but have been using fuel rewards for a few years, saved me well over $1000 in gas over the last few years).

Nonsense. I did this a few weeks ago with out issue.

In addition to your nonsense, another misconception in this thread is that you have to have or apply for a Shell Credit card. You don't. With FRN you can you use ANY accepted payment method. You do have to have an FRN account, you do have to add the unique code Pennzoil sends you by redeeming the code on the FRN website (highlight 'account", click on "reward code." type in your unique code and click "apply/" If you've managed to do everything correctly, when you go back to the homepage you should see the $1.00 added to your "CURRENT REWARD BALANCE." When you go to use this at the pump, if (GIANT IF, apparently,) you've managed to do everything correctly, the price at the pump will drop by your available reward balance up to the cost of the fuel. If the price at the pump didn't drop, you did something wrong. It does not deduct $20 from your final fuel cost, it drops the price per gallon you are pumping.

This is a GREAT promotion.

I used this promotion as well. Worked without the slightest issue. Bought a 5 qt jug of oil at Advance for $10.xx, uploaded the rebate info, and in a couple of weeks I got an envelope in the mail with the code. I added the code to my FRN account and went to the Shell station. At the pump the price dropped by 1.05. I pumped 19.5xx gallons...
After all was said and done, I got paid $8 to get the oil off of their hands.

Always a good feeling to get paid to get oil.
I got my $20 FRN credit on a bottle of $7 walmart clearance PP.

Yup did the same thing with my code


You have to set up a Fuel Rewards account with Shell to use the code
