Winn-Dixie Stores Complaint - False Promotions - Reward Card/Shell Gas Stations
NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA -- I have been a patron of Winn Dixie stores for several years. I, along with several other customers in the New Orleans East area are totally dissatisfied with the false advertisement of the promotion concerning discounted gas at Shell gas stations. As customers we have been eluded to believe that when money is spent at Winn Dixie stores that we would receive discounts in gas per gallon at Shell gas stations. We are being told that for certain amounts spent that it would knock off five cents per gallon. When you have accumulated enough you are then entitled to receive discounts from Shell gas stations. Just today I went to five Shell gas stations that would not honor the agreement of discounted gas per gallon. What a joke! Each of the Shell gas stations came up with a different excuse. For example, our debit/credit machine is not working. I am expected to be gullible enough to believe that the debit machines at every Shell station I pull up to is down. If this is not to be blamed on, our local astronomically high priced Winn Dixie, then whose fault is it? I plan on contacting the Better Business Bureau and whomever else I can complain to. Believe that!I get it. Shell Gas Stations don't want to lose money. On my Winn Dixie rececipt it says I have earned 85 cents off of every gallon. The reward points end at the end of every month. The going price for gas at Shell stations is on an average of $2.74 per gallon. Quite naturally, Shell gas stations would not want to give me the gas for $1.89 as I so deserve. Patrons please beware! This is a scam. After making my phone calls I will let the world know the outcome of this scam. Shame on you Winn Dixie and Shell gas stations!
