Note: The following giveaway is open to Canadians only.
I don’t know about you, but I’m a HUGE fan of rewards programs. It’s obvious, isn’t it?
1. Go about spending as you normally would.
2. Collect rewards.
3. Treat yourself to a splendid little surprise.
Of course, sometimes my husband and I disagree on what the little “surprise” should be. #rollseyes
Anyhoo, it brings me great pleasure to share Shell’s 5 x 5,000 Contest with you. Shell is celebrating their role as the national sponsor of the New AIR MILES Cash program, which lets consumers decide how they want to redeem earned reward miles… including redeeming them for instant savings at Shell!
(My parents would be all over this one. They ALWAYS take their rewards in the form of gas savings, and it’s a well-known fact that Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines help clean and protect your engine from performance-robbing gunk.)
Each week from March 21 to April 24, 2012, one entrant will be randomly selected to win 5,000 AIR MILES rewards miles (five winners in total). Um… hello! 5,000 AIR MILES can go a long way – booking a much needed vacation, pampering yourself, or fueling up for an epic summer road trip. The possibilities are endless.
All you have to do is visit Shell’s 5 x 5,000 Contest on Facebook, fill out a simple entry form and include your AIR MILES Reward Miles Collector Account Number.
(Hint: the answer to the skill-testing question can be found here.)
Then, sit back and cross your fingers – and perhaps start thinking of how to spend those rewards miles if you win! Good luck everybody :)
One lucky Listen to Lena reader will win a Shell Prepaid MasterCard loaded with $50 of Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines. To enter, simply fill the form below with your qualifying entries. Good luck every one!

Just a friendly warning to some people, but if you have an older car don’t use the Shell Nitrogen gas! Shell Nitrogen Enriched gas wrecked my ex-girlfriend’s car. It did what it said and removed the “gunk”, but since it was an older car (’93) the gunk was hardened to the metal and (I’m sorry, I’m not a car person so you’ll have to forgive me bad verbiage!) when it got ‘removed’ by the gas, it tore a hole in the metal! If you have an older car where the gunk is pretty hard, avoid it at all costs! :( I wish I was a car person so I could explain it better.
