MetroSplash's FuelLinks Cash-for-Gas joins Points.com

DALLAS -- MetroSplash Systems Group said that its loyalty program, FuelLinks Cash-for-Gas, is now a participating program in the world's leading loyalty reward program management website, Points.com, which is owned and operated by Points International Ltd. Points.com members now have the ability to "swap" (the exchange of rewards from one reward program into another reward program held by that same member) for FuelLinks Cash-for-Gas.

Members with existing balances in any of the more than 40 participating programs, will now be able to swap those points/miles for FuelLinks [image-nocss] rewards.

"In the current economic environment, we have been looking to bolster our offering so users can get even more value for the points and miles they have already accumulated," said Rob MacLean, CEO of Points Intl. "The addition of FuelLinks on Points.com gives members immediate relief to their monthly household budget for gas money."

"A Points.com FuelLinks swap provides consumers with more options to earn their much needed gas money," said Steve Babick, president and CEO for MetroSplash. "Exchanging existing miles and reward balances to the very relevant reward of fuel will be a meaningful option for many members."

FuelLinks, the nation's largest fuel-based loyalty program, gives its members access to more than 4,400 fuel redemption centers in 28 states. Registration is free and secure at www.fuellinks.com.
