E-check payment option from Shell offers savvy consumers convenience and

HOUSTON, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Shell Oil Products US launched the Shell
Saver Card today, becoming the first gasoline retailer to make an electronic
check payment method available to consumers nationally. This latest Shell
payment option provides consumers with a convenient way to pay for purchases
with a direct link to a checking account and savings on each gallon of fuel
pumped at Shell stations.
    The Shell Saver Card is a non-credit payment product issued to consumers
directly from Shell, has no application or annual fees and offers a
promotional savings of 5 cents per gallon on Shell gasoline or diesel
purchases until June 1, 2009 and 2 cents per gallon thereafter. Because the
card is linked to a checking account, it offers the added advantage of no
impact on consumer credit scores, especially important to consumers who wish
to avoid using credit. Consumers who apply for the Shell Saver Card must have
an active checking account in good standing to qualify.
    "We are pleased to be able to offer the Shell Saver Card to consumers at a
time when saving, budgeting and managing credit can be very key to personal
financial health during this challenging economic cycle," said Elizabeth
Hudson, US Consumer Cards, Shell Oil Products US. "This is a timely payment
solution and also continues our commitment to helping consumers lower the cost
of driving without sacrificing the quality of their fuel."
    The Shell Saver Card can be used at Shell-branded stations for any
purchases except lottery tickets. However, the discount applies only to
gasoline and diesel purchases. Consumers interested in obtaining a Shell Saver
Card may pick up an inactive card at a Shell-branded station to start the
