The Shell Gas Card is a great card for people who travel a lot. The discounts on hotels and the cash back is good.

This card is actually pretty good. I had a citi card that was similar to this. It gave decent rates, but I enjoy the fact that you earn 10% extra when staying at select hotels. My Citi Student card offered similar services, but not that good of an offer. The only problem I have is the $25 annual fee. But that is minor if you use the card right.

The Shell gas card is really not that appealing to me because I had the exxon gas card before which had nearly identical usage terms and did not satisfy me. The only difference is it did not give me rewards for staying in hotels and flying. I am not a frequent traveler yet but I think there are better ways to go about cutting down on traveling costs rather than getting a gas card like this one that doesn't give you much of a reward for using gas. I would not really recommend this card to anyone unless they are a very frequent traveler.

This shell card is way better than my previous gas card at a company I would not like to say on this forum. I believe that the benefits of this card outweigh my current cart. I will apply for this card in the near future. I would recommend this card for anyone who constantly travels as the rewards for hotels and planes are great.

This is Great!I love this card. The shell gas card is a really good one with so many benefits. Compared to other cards$1000 dollars emergency cash. The Shell Gas Card is a fantastic choice for travelers.Overall I think the Shell Gas Card is an excellent card for my needs. Their cashback/reward options seem great, although not as good as I have seen. like the fact that the Shell Gas Card does not put a cap on the amount that you are able to earn from your rewards.

I love this card. There have been plenty of times that I have found myself in a jam and it came to the rescue. Compared to other cards, the offer of the hotel savings along with the cash back is just wonderful. I am happy with the grace period as well as I am guilty of forgetting to pay my bills on time. This is Great!

As someone who travels regularly, I really appreciate the 5% cash back on airfare, 10% cash back on many hotels and no foreign transaction fee. The only down side is that there is no reward for buying gas. Since it is a gas card, I would think that there would be some sort of incentive to buy gas, but there isn't. The annual fee of $25 isn't too high, but I do typically prefer a card with no annual fee. However, the $35 maximum late fee is very nice.

The Shell Gas Card is a fantastic choice for travelers. It features a good percentage of cash back on some well-known and very easy-to-find hotels, as well as cash back on traveling needs like airlines and car rentals, PLUS discounts on many other hotels. There are almost no drawbacks to this card, especially since, if you travel, you'll get enough cash back to easily cover the annual fee and more.

The Shell Gas Card gives a whopping 10 percent back on stays at some of the best hotels around. This is a much better offer than you can find on most cards and makes this card a great way to save money on accommodations.

Overall I think the Shell Gas Card is an excellent card for my needs. As a college student I'm not a fan of the $25 annual fee, but as a person who frequently flies home from school and back, I have more than made up for it with the 5% cash back for airline fees. With that said, I am curious as to why a gas card would not offer cash back when buying gas. Nevertheless, the most important factor to me about this card is that it is stress free. A max late fee of only $35 puts my mind at ease. What is more, having had a different more

I like the card; it should list the other places it works at more clearly on the card, and also mention that it can be used for store purchases. I would like custom images also. The insurance and the max late fee are nice. Over all I try to stay away from cards, but this one is nice. I would say this Shell gas card is much better for gas than my BP gas card.

The name of the card, the Shell Gas Card, may be a little misleading because you can use it for much more than gas. The best thing about the Shell Gas Card is that you are able to earn 10% cash back when staying at specified Hotels as well as earn 5% cash back on air lines and car rentals. The cash advance rate is 29.95%, which I would personally look to avoid. Overall, I think it is a great card if used on vacations.

The Shell Gas card is not what it seems. It obviously has nothing to do with gas, so I feel like I personally wouldn't be able to get much use out of it as I would a regular gas card. However, for the rewards they offer I think it is pretty awesome. I would enjoy getting some extra perks when I do travel. Their cashback/reward options seem great, although not as good as I have seen. I also prefer my Capital One credit card rewards which I can use for anything, with a lower apr and no annual fees.

I like the fact that the Shell Gas Card does not put a cap on the amount that you are able to earn from your rewards. As a person that drives a lot for work it makes it a great card to have! The $1,000 emergency cash is an awesome perk to have. It takes the stress off of my mind that I will ever be in an emergency situation that I will not have assistance to get out of. The rate is OK/middle of the road but the advance perk more than makes up for it. This is the card to have for anybody that has a big commute more

The Shell Gas Card is probably the most horribly named, yet still useful, credit card I've ever used. It has nothing to do with gas, and I don't think I've ever used it at a Shell station. What it is good for is all the aspects of travel /except/ gas. Off the bat, it has a $25 annual fee, so if you dont see yourself using it a lot it might not be a good fit. If you book a lot of airfare, or stay in a lot of hotels, you can really get a lot of savings using this card. Just make sure you pay it off quickly, as more

If you need a travel based credit card, then look no further than the Shell Gas Card. This card offers amazing bonuses for using it during traveling and booking, such as a discount and 10% cash back for staying at an approved hotel. This card also offers 5% discounts on airline tickets and car rentals, which is great for saving money. Finally the Shell Gas Card offers an emergency $1,000 cash or prepaid airline ticket. For travel this card is great to have, but beware of the annual fee of $25, one of the negatives to the Shell Gas Card. It also has a high interest rate and 29.95% cash more

I am not a huge fan of the Shell Gas Card terms and conditions. This is due, in part, to the fact that it requires an annual $25 fee. Almost all the cards that I possess do not have any fees. I feel very strongly about this and probably wouldn't use the Shell Gas Card for that reason. However, I do like the flat rate $35 max late fee. The rewards you earn using this card also seem to be more generous than other rewards programs that I have seen.I especially like the 50% discount at over 5,000 hotels and 30% discount at many more.

The Shell Gas Card is kind of interesting, or confusing one might say, unless you really read what you are getting. You would think, since it's a Shell Gas Card, you would get some kind of cash back or rewards for purchasing gas, but nope. Nothing. In fact, it isn't even useful in any way at a Shell gas station, which makes no sense. Either way, this card is great if you do lots of traveling and spend a lot on hotels and car rentals. The money back is actually very high, it's just quite misleading to call it a Gas card, when it most obviously isn't one.

This card makes absolutely no sense to have. When you get a gas card you expect to get money back from that gas station, but nope this doesn't give you that. You get money back from actually renting hotels from various across the country. What makes even less sense is that you get money back from buying airline tickets? Why would they want to give you that if its a shell card. They would want you to drive everywhere since they can sell you more gasoline. This card just makes no sense, and has no reason to get it. I was highly disappointed with this card because i wanted money more

Pay attention to what you're getting, and this is definitely a GREAT card. The Shell Gas Card doesn't offer any rewards for buying their gasoline, which I admit to be very strange. However, it does offer a whopping 10% cash back on a variety of hotels, which is a HUGE amount of cash back for anything! A business traveler would benefit greatly from this Shell Gas Card. And, to make it even sweeter, it offers 5% cash back on car rentals and airplane tickets! I think that actually might be even better than my Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Plus Credit Card. The TrueEarnings from Costco and American Express only offers more

I got this card expecting some bonus for buying my gas at the gas station down the road but instead they give you bonuses for going to hotels like the Ramada and Hilton. I dont even understand the Shell Gas Card AT ALL? Why would you be giving me money back for airline tickets when I'm trying to buy fuel for my car. Isn't rewarding me for airplanes like counterintutive because they should want me to drive isntead of fly? Please shell give me bonuses for buying gas not for hotels and stuff. This card also does not give me anything worth going to Shell and it makes me sad

The main benefits of the Shell gas card are kind of misleading, as there are little to no benefits using this card for gas purchases. You’re going to see the main benefit if you are a frequent traveler and stay at hotels such as Holiday Inn, Hilton and Ramada. You’ll get up to 10% cash back at major hotel chains, and 5% back on airlines and car rentals. I would only recommend this card if you are a frequent traveler, as the $25 annual fee might set you back more than the rewards you’ll earn if you only stay at a hotel one or two nights per year.

The Shell Gas Card is nice for travelers who plan on staying at well-known hotels because you get a nice little cash back bonus on something that you use a lot. It's a little disappointing that the cash back is less on airlines and car rentals, since these are expenses that tend to go hand-in-hand. These cash back bonuses are still better than what I get on my current card when I travel (nada), but some cards bundle these hotel, airline, and rental car costs together as together as travel expenses. I recommend this card for travelers. Non-travelers are better off finding a card that suits their own needs better more

Though I don't travel as much as I used to this is a card I could see myself using in the future. I plan to travel to Brazil in the near future and the cash back percentages seem to be very nice and exactly what I would need. The only problem is I have seen other cards with much better cash back rewards than this one, and for frequent travelers getting a higher percentage back would be great. I'd definitely pick up this card if I had the chance, though, simply because it's one of the better ones I have seen, though not the best by any means.

I can see how this card might appeal to a particular sort of user, but it just doesn't work for me. If I traveled frequently the 10% cash back and 5% cash back on airlines would be very attractive. Unfortunately I don't travel much so these positives don't out weigh the negatives. Those negatives being an annual fee of $25 and a rate of 24.99%. I use credit cards just for the ease of payment and for short-term loans. I don't want to have to pay to use a credit card and I want my interest payments to be manageable. But again if your are a frequent traveler the discounts more
