CHICAGO -- The Fuel Rewards Network (FRN) is coming to the Windy City this summer as part of its ongoing one-year anniversary celebration.
The FRN's Great American Fuel Price Relief Tour is led by the FRN Ambassador team and is traveling across the country in the FRN RV, attending local and national events and educating consumers about the program and its goal to save Americans $1 billion on their fuel costs.
The FRN is a free loyalty program that helps members save money on fuel when purchasing the goods and services that they normally do, stated Excentus Corp., the program's provider. FRN has access to nearly 700 online merchants, 1,400 retailers and more than 10,000 restaurants across the country, and FRN members have "significant" opportunities to reduce their price at the pump each time they fill up year round.
"Chicago is a tremendous, culturally rich area, and we are looking forward to having a presence at these popular community events," said Dickson Perry, founder and CEO of Excentus Corp. "This level of consumer interaction allows us the opportunity to create awareness for the FRN program and the Great American Fuel Price Relief Tour in this area, which traditionally has some of the highest fuel prices in the country."
The tour will be making pit stops at four major summer events in the Chicago area:
- Naperville Rib Festival. This event is currently underway through July 7 and features some of the top rib vendors in the country, as well as musical performances on two stages. Proceeds will be donated to help end child abuse and domestic violence.
- North Shore Art Festival, July 27-28, which will showcase great art, live music and offer fun art programs for kids to enjoy. This event will benefit the Skokie Chamber of Commerce.
- Chicago Air and Water Show, Aug. 16-18, presented by Shell Oil Co. and the City of Chicago, which is the largest free show of its kind in the United States.
- Highland Park Art Festival, Aug. 24-25, which features more than 260 of the world's most celebrated artists. Young artists will also have the opportunity to showcase their work in the Youth Art Division.
