    Shell Drivers Club Points - have you had problems ?

    Many thanks Guys for contributing to this debate,all your comments have been interesting - can I add one my last final thoughts - I think the loyalty card retailers probably get far more out of this than the end user - particularly in spending habits/data gathering. I suspect that we are all...

    Our local Garage recently converted from a Shell Forecourt to a Texaco Forecourt.Prior to this I collected fuel points on my Shell Drivers Club Card - to be honest,I was never over enthusiastic about the points - they seemed mean - but the Garage offered its own 3p/4p off a litre coupons so I...
