Nitro Card

Shell Oil and Citibank added more octane to their MasterCard to attract new cardholders. Consumers applying for the “Shell MasterCard” through January 15th will earn triple rebates on their purchases. The triple Shell rebates will apply for the first 60 days. Additionally, new cardholders will earn triple rebates on the first $100 spent at Jiffy Lube locations per day, as well as all other purchases. The program currently rewards cardholders with a 5% rebate on Shell gas and Jiffy Lube purchases over $100 and 1% on all other purchases. This means that new cardholders can earn a rebate of 35 cents per gallon at an average price of $2.35 per gallon when using a “Shell MasterCard” for their Shell gasoline purchases. The “Shell MasterCard” was originally launched by Chemical Bank (now Chase) in October 1993, and has grown to become the largest gasoline co-branded card in the USA. Citibank took over the program in 2003. For more information visit: “”:
