How To Save Money on Gas with Fuel Rewards Network #FuelRewards

Summer is here and that means we will be spending extra money on gas for daily staycation road trips, and long term vacations! If you have been looking for savings on fuel, then you probably have been scouting local stations for the cheapest price in town!

Shell in partnership with the Fuel Rewards Network has made this pursuit easier by turning everyday purchases into cash rewards at the pump!

How To Save Money on Gas with Fuel Rewards Network #FuelRewards

Just this week I save an additional .20 cents when I fueled up a local Shell Station!

If you also want to start taking advantage of these lower prices, first you will need to sign up for FREE at fuelrewards.com. Next, you will receive a Fuel Rewards Network (FRN) Card to use at participating Shell stations nationwide.

So how can you turn purchases into Fuel rewards? There are actually MANY ways to save!

 How To Save Money on Gas with Fuel Rewards Network #FuelRewards

I only recently started using my card and outside of any special promotion, I automatically saved .03 cents.  After I linked up my Winn Dixie Card and made a few purchases, I was able to take advantage of the .20 cents in savings reward. Right now I have a  new .10 reward that I can use.

Just today, I just connected my credit card to earn rewards with dining, and I can’t wait to see how many rewards I accumulate with that.

“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Isis Wallet. I received a promotional item to facilitate my review.”

Shopping at Stores with the ISIS Mobile Wallet

Are you looking for an easier way to make payments at stores? Want to use your Mobile device versus pulling out your wallet?

Then you will want to download the FREE ISIS Wallet App! I have actually had this application for over 6 months now, and it is really simple to use.

The ISIS Wallet Mobile App can be used at select retailers nationwide like McDonalds, Walgreens, Champs, and more. You may even be able to use it at your favorite local store, gym, or Doctor’s Office.

Free Sim Card at Verizon Corporate Store for Isis Wallet

However, before you can download the app, you will first need to have mobile service with either Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile and also have an ISIS ready phone.

I happen to own a compatible Samsung S4 and in order to ready it for the app, I simply went to a corporate Verizon store and picked up a FREE SIM Card.  ISIS ready phones need a Special SIM in order to accept contactless payments via NFC (Near Field Communication).

How to use the Offers through the ISIS Mobile Wallet

Once I got my phone ready for NFC, I setup a form of payment via the app.  ISIS ready phones can be connected to American Express, Chase, and Wells Fargo Credit cards. Applicable fees may apply for transfers. 

It can also be connected to an American Express Serve account or a bank’s Debit Card.

 American Express Serve through the ISIS Mobile Wallet

I didn’t happen to have one of the applicable credit cards, so I signed up for an American Express Serve account. Once I made my transfer to my Serve account and connected it to my ISIS Wallet, it took about 5 business days for the funds it to appear.

Linking up the Serve account is EASY and FREE. Visit serve.com/isis for more details.

Offers through the ISIS Mobile Wallet

I also went into the App and selected my favorite retailers so I will receive special offers and coupons.  While looking, I was excited to see a deal for a FREE Jamba Juice or Smoothie and FREE Coca-Cola. Visit Where To Pay With ISIS to see retailers nearby.

In addition, I connected my Toys R Us and My Coke Rewards cards so I could get credit for purchases. I was then all set-up and ready to shop.

Paying at McDonald's with the ISIS Mobile Wallet

My daughter happened to be having a Ballet recital over the weekend and after her last practice, I took her out for a Mommy Daughter Day.

Our first stop was McDonald’s and I purchased our meal by tapping my phone on the “contactless symbol” pad.

Eating at McDonald's with the ISIS Mobile Wallet

Since we were out, I also wanted to do some birthday shopping for my son and a friend of my daughter’s.

This worked out perfect since there was a special coupon through ISIS for $10 off a $50 purchase at Toys R Us.

Toys R Us Offers through the ISIS Mobile Wallet

At check out I simply selected the coupon, and placed my phone on the payment pad.

It not only deducted the coupon right there, but it also completed the payment.

Shopping at Stores with the ISIS Mobile Wallet

We ended our shopping trip making a stop at CVS for Father’s Day Cards.  When we checked out, I saw that they also had an ISIS ready payment system. Just another reason to get excited about the App!

The ISIS Wallet is truly a fun and useful app, and I love that I saved money that day and used my phone to make all my purchases.

“Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Ambassadors SE Voices program and have been provided with a wireless device in exchange for my honest opinions about the product. Information in this post was provided by Verizon”

ISIS App Verizon

As part of the Verizon Ambassadors SE Voices program, I was asked to check out a mobile payment application called ISIS Mobile Wallet that is offered through Verizon Wireless. I am so excited to have this opportunity, because I am learning about new technology and gaining access to all kinds of great money-saving offers through my phone.

So what exactly is the Isis Mobile Wallet ?

The Isis Mobile Wallet is a way to pay for purchases at retailers that display the contactless symbol.  A technology called NFC* (Near Field Communication) enables the APP to communicate with the checkout terminal, and users simply tap their phone to pay anywhere contactless payments are accepted.

Shopping with ISIS

Is Isis Mobile Wallet safe to use?

My phone happens to have an enhanced SIM card designed to store and protect my payment information. Plus for safety purposes, you can select a PIN to use ISIS and if your device is lost one call or click can freeze your Wallet with Remote Wallet locking. More details are at the ISIS Mobile Wallet FAQ page.

How to set-up Isis Mobile Wallet:

To get started simply link credit cards from participating providers including American Express, Chase, and Wells Fargo. Applicable fees may apply for transfers.  In addition you can set up an American Express Serve account or link your banks Debit Card.

Set up for Serve for ISIS

My Credit Card happened to not be on the list so I decided to use the FREE American Express Serve option. Not only was it easy to set up, but I also got a $10 Credit for my enrollment through the ISIS app.

When you sign up for American Express Serve through the ISIS app, you can also get 20% back on every tap with your American Express Serve Account in the Isis Mobile Wallet for up to $200 in credits.  This is a limited time offer good till January 31, 2014. Visit serve.com/isis for terms and conditions.

In addition to signing up for payments, I also linked a couple of my rewards cards.  This way I get immediate credit for those purchases. So far I have linked my Toys R Us Card and My Coke Rewards.

I also went through and selected  my favorite retailers like Verizon and Toys R Us to gain access to special offers. I’ve had coupons and FREE items show up already.

Screenshot offers at ISIS

Here are a couple of the offers I received this week and I am really liking the FREEBIES from Coke and Jamba. I actually already used the Toys R Us coupon this week and saved myself $15!

There are so many benefits to having this app, and I can’t wait to try it out at additional retailers. So far the TOP benefit has been the coupons, as time goes on it will be nice not to have to pull out my wallet.

Are you making purchases with your mobile phone? What benefits do you see to using the ISIS Mobile Wallet App?

The following is a sponsored post for Coppertone. I was provided free samples of product to facilitate this review. Opinions expressed are that of my own.

Coppertone Sunscreen Products for Kids

Summertime is in full swing here in Florida, and even with Back to School steadily approaching, there is still plenty of warm sunshine left for my kids to play in.

Thanks to Coppertone, I was sent 3 of their sunscreen products to review with my family here on Frugal and Fun Mom. The three items I received were the Kids Wacky FoamSensitive Skin, and Wet n’ Clear. I have used all of these, and they work great. They are easy to apply, are water-resistant, and last up to 80 minutes each.

Recently, we went to a pool party and I used the Kids Wacky Foam with Broad Spectrum SPF 75+.  I’m happy to report that it went on easy and there were no burns.

Coppertone on kids in pool

My daughter swimming with Coppertone Kids Wacky Foam Sunscreen on.

My youngest son who is 1, can only use Hypoallergenic products due to a skin condition. The Sensitive Skin formula has been perfect for him.  It goes on thick and provides Broad Spectrum SPF 50. This product is made with naturally sourced Zinc Oxide.

Coppertone Sunscreen and Pool Time

My son swimming with Coppertone Kids Wacky Foam Sunscreen on.

The one that has really come in handy is the Wet n’ Clear. My kids love the water, and this has been great when they have been playing in the pool, sprinkler, and at the kiddie water table. Even though they have been wet, it has gone on just as well as the others I used. Wet n’ Clear offers Broad Spectrum SPF 45+.

To learn more about these products and to print a $1.00 off coupon for a limited time, visit coppertone.com or check them out on Facebook at facebook.com/coppertone. You can find these products at retailer near you or online at drugstore.com.

Since I have had 3 kids, I have been a long time member of the Publix Baby Club program.

When I initially signed up as a first time parent, I received an $20 Value book from the American Academy of Pediatrics’ called “Caring for Your Baby and Young Child”, and I got valuable coupons and information pamphlets about baby as well.

With every child thereafter, I continued to receive information related to baby, high value coupons (meat, deli, baby items, etc), and coupons for FREE product at Publix. (FYI, I had to re-enroll for each child).

 

Publix Baby Club Freebies

 

I just recently got my first piece of mail from Publix for baby #3 and already redeemed my coupons for FREE items that included rubbing alcohol, lotion, and antibacterial hand gel. Plus, there were plenty of coupons including a $1.00 off meat coupon and a $1.00 off Deli coupon that I will be using on my next trip to the store.

If you have not taking an opportunity to sign up for this program, it is well worth your time. Plus, once your kiddos get bigger, you can transition them over to the Preschool Pals Program.
