*.99% APR for balance transfers made 1/1/15-3/31/15. The .99% APR rate is good for 6 billing periods from the date of each transfer. After, unpaid balances revert to standard variable card rate (8.99%-21.99% APR). Balance transfers process as cash transactions and incur finance charges immediately. Interest will also be charged on purchases as of the transaction date if the entire statement balance, including the total amount subject to a promotional APR, is not paid by the due date each month. The minimum payment applies to lowest rate balances first. Payments exceeding the minimum payment due each billing period apply to balances with high APRs prior to low APRs. Current Consumers credit card and loan balances ineligible for transfer. No rewards points on transferred balances.
For details, see your credit card agreement. Approval subject to credit review. Promo rates/fees/terms subject to change, may end at any time. Your standard APR is based on a periodic review of your account/credit history and may vary with the market based on Prime Rate. Refer to your truth-in-lending statement.

Pay Less Than the Pump Price with Fuel Rewards
Filling up your tank doesn’t mean emptying your wallet when you have MasterCard Fuel Rewards. This new rewards program for Consumers Credit Union members gives you cents off per gallon for using your MasterCard credit or debit card. It’s simple and easy. All you do is sign up and use your card for purchases just as you normally do. When you’ve earned rewards, redeem them at the pump!
How to Get Started
First, you become a Fuel Rewards Network (FRN) member. Sign up one of two ways:
(Right now, there is an incentive of 20¢/gallon after your first fill up just for signing up!)
Next, link your all your MasterCard credit and debit cards to your FRN membership. It’s easy and takes just a few moments online or through the app.
To start earning rewards, use your debit card as you normally do. Purchases from eligible merchants for groceries and dining out will start building your rewards. So do purchases through the FRN online mall.
How much you earn depends on the type of purchase. For example, for every $50 you spend dining out at participating restaurants, bars, and clubs, you’ll earn savings of 10¢/gallon. In addition, there are limited time special offers that can reduce the price you pay at the pump even more. Until March 31, 2015, you can earn 20¢/gallon for every $100 spent at Toys “R” Us, JCPenney, and Olive Garden.
Redeem Your Rewards
Use your Fuel Rewards at any participating Shell Station (view map). When paying at the pump select “FRN/[Grocer Name]” then insert your FRN card and watch your price drop based on the savings you’ve earned. You can use your rewards for up to 20 gallons per purchase, per vehicle.
Don’t forget to use your rewards once you’ve earned them! Fuel Rewards savings expire on the last day of the month immediately following the month in which they are earned. So, the Fuel Rewards savings you earn on December 15 will expire on January 31.
And, rewards earned December 30 will also expire on January 31.
The Fuel Rewards program for Consumers Credit Union members is a no-brainer for saving money at the pump!
