My initial post was to join a new group but so far I've been getting message from others who want to join a new group as well, so I think I will go and buy 3x30 days car wash passes and set up a group. I will try to do it for next week. For those that have pm'd me, I'll respond to you PMs to confirm. If anyone else wants to join, please PM and let me know which day of the week you want. There will be a total of 7 days available (it'll be a one day per week). Depending on what day we start, 1 or 2 ppl may get 12 washes instead of 13, assuming there are no issues with the app.

Update: all days are taken and paid for. Group is closed.

How are you guys sharing this with the requirement of swiping the card prior to using the app.

My issue is if I start Monday, 30 days from now Monday and Tuesday would have 5th washes. how do we continue to ensure everyone has an even number of washes? Now since I am the leader of the group, how do I continue the next 30 days without stopping? If I start on Monday again, I have 5 washes again, while everyone has 4. If I provide a card to the 31st day person, which is a Wednesday for them to activate, then the rest can reload the card? Wednesday, and Thursday would have had their 5 washes while everyone has 4th, so then I would provide another card to swipe to activate on the person on the 61st day which would allow friday and saturday to have 6 washes,

Base the payment on number of washes per member, doesn't necessarily have to be split equally.

I'm looking to join a group.

My current group is done soon, the leader probably won’t organize the group anymore. So I’m thinking to make a new group, we have 3 ppl so far, everyone would like to take weekdays, so Friday, Saturday and Sunday are all open. And Tuesday or Wednesday will be available as well. Anyone interested plz PM. Thanks :)
*I will buy 3 x 30 day pass, so it costs $40 per spot, up to 14 washes within 3 months*

All days are taken. Group is closed. :)

Note the date and times of your interactions with customer service, and I'd do a charge back on my credit card with the reason services not rendered. When your credit card company comes back asking you why, you bring up the issues and interactions you had with shell.

The charge back is going to hit the individual shell gas station, however I guess it would be in their best interest to help you deal with corporate. Afterall, you bought a service from "shell", it shouldn't matter who gets the charge back to handle the situation.

If you load pass into app without using the physical card first it will show up as expired the next day. Then you need to delete it from the app, use it by swiping the card and then load it back in

Bought a 30 day car wash earlier, loaded the card into my app then washed my car before i left the gas station. Got home and now the app is saying my card is expired. Called the station and was told to update my app, checked my app version, it was up to date so i unistalled and reinstalled the app, but was still giving me the same expired message. Will go back to station tomorrow after calling the attendant yhe sexond time.

Bought a 30 day pass yesterday, was able to load card in to the app. Used it for the first time and then after the first car wash it says pass expired.

Registered it, still shows expired. Removed the card and tried to add it again, it used to say...Invalid card number. I was able to add it using shell website/register card.

Its working fine for one of my friends, it shows expired on my phone, it shows 0 days remaining on an other friends phone.

In short, pretty frustrating experience. Won't recommend to anyone.

Just use the card at the carwash, it will be back to normal after that.

I'm looking for a Thursday if anyone's starting a 90 day group buy.
