ExxonMobil launches a new app to reward you for buying gas
ExxonMobil has just launched a new app called Exxon Mobil Rewards+™. It's got a couple of cool features for customers, including the ability to pay for gas from your phone, increased rewards on purchases and personalized offers based on location.
Though Exxon Mobil isn't generally the best rewards program to save on gas, you can stack Exxon Mobil Rewards with credit cards that offer bonuses at gas stations to maximize your returns. To celebrate the launch of the app, Exxon is offering a limited-time promotion allowing users to earn five cents per gallon in points until Feb. 2020. Even better, for Premium status customers that bonus is doubled — meaning you'll earn 10 cents per gallon in points, though it's limited to purchases on premium fuel.

For those worried about security, Exxon and IBM iX designed the app together, promising that customer's payment information never reaches the pump. The app also uses IBM Watson Campaign Automation, which means you'll see personalized offers based on your geolocation.
Exxon already operated a free app, called Exxon Mobil Speedpass+, which was designed to accept mobile payments and reduce the risk of skimming (stealing credit card information at the pump). This new iteration offers some great features, including an all-in-one stop for payment, rewards and coupons. If you're an Exxon customer, download now in order to take advantage of the increased bonuses and maximize your rewards.
