Tips on Shell Escape Points Redemption

Recently, I installed the Shell App in my mobile phone and found that I have had some Escape Points DEDUCTED!


So I quickly sent the Shell Escape team an email and promptly received a reply. Their answer was, "The deduction was due to Escape Points that had expired."


I was shocked!


I always have the impression that Shell Escape Points are like Esso Smiles Points, they never expire!


So I went to read the FAQ again and alas, Shell Escape Points do expire!


Will my Shell Escape points expire?
Shell Escape points carry a validity period of two (2) years from the date the points are credited into the account.



I got a little annoyed that some of my Shell Escape Points expired. Though it was only 36 points. But still, they are points which can be redeemed for something.


So I wanted to redeem $40 worth of petrol at my next visit and that got me thinking.


Should I pump exactly $40 worth of petrol or should I pump $47 so the final price will be slightly more than $40 after 14% discount (station and credit card discount)?

I tried searching online and my best friend google didn't tell me anything.


How much should I pump for redemption of Shell Escape Points for $40 worth of petrol?

How much should I pump for redeeming $40 worth of petrol using Shell Escape Point?

How much to pump to redeem $40 worth of petrol using Shell Escape Points?

How much do I pump when redeeming Shell Escape Points for fuel/petrol?


All the above questions yield no results.


So I decided to test it out myself. I went ahead to pump $47 worth of Shell petrol and made a redemption of $40 using 1,100 Shell Escape Points.


I was right! This is the receipt for your future reference!

One last tip for Shell Escape Points Redemption


If you are using credit card for payment, try to use CITIBANK or HSBC credit card as they give you 14% upfront. UOB credit cards only gives you 10% discount upfront.


The key is to get as much discount upfront as possible.
