I couldn't replicate it myself either I did only one the first day as a test run, when I went big the next few days, I got the $10 off but no gas points. OTH, it's not like I would have a use for all those gas points anyway.

I didn't. Had to manually be entered by cashier.

But I can confirm as well that surfboard gave double the pts (1000 fuel reward pts / a full dollar off at the pump).

I sorta lost track of the bidding. If you are only interested in the discount (not the points), are we saying that a $500 Kevlar will automatically generate the J4U discount?

Kevlar did work for me, but I think I had my best success with the cupcake one

Tried a Kayak today. It did give me 1000 FR. but no discount.
Manager was called, gave manual -$10 on the purchase.
Fortunately almost done with this promotion, don't like
the attention of calling managers.

Tried Visa with Balloons, Visa with Sea Shells. No $10 discount with the club card. Showed app to head clerk. Was dealing with the graveyard stock crew. Very easy for them to void transactions since the manager override card is sitting at the register all night for anyone to use. Clerk agreed that it should have discounted $10 and tried to do a manual discount. Clerk said the system would not allow a manual discount. Clerk ended up voiding off the processing fee and a couple other items I bought to get a discount of approximately (but not exactly) $10.

No Fuel Points earned.

For me, cupcake generated the desired J4U discount, but no fuel points (I don't care). Thanks!!

My experience -
Kevlar - always gets J4U, never points (4 x)
Flowers/Roses - always gets J4U, never points (1x)
Balloons - No J4U discount, gets points, but have had $10 manual override (2x)
Cupcake - always gets J4U, never points. (2x)

My take away is that the points are possible only if the J4U doesnt work and I am able to get a manager override. Im also able to keep the $10 off in my account too.

Anyone knows if the current J4U "Participating Dining Gift Cards, When you buy $50 or more in Participating Dining gift cards." and "Participating Fashion Gift Cards, When you buy $100 or more in Participating Fashion gift cards." work for Dining everywhere and Style everywhere?. Conditions note "*Participating Cards include: Applebee's, Buffalo Wild Wings, Burger King, Chili's, Domino's and Starbucks." and "Participating Cards include: American Eagle, Bath & Body Works, Kohl's, JC Penney and Sephora.".

I get that the T&C exclused the visa everywhere, but the special is otherwise exactly the same as the previous round which did allow the visas, so I'm wondering if they actually updated the special or only changed the language? I'll test locally this weekend and be a DP, just wondering of anyone else tested too.

I've already seen a couple of negative DPs. 2x gas still counted though.
I guess they've caught on. The last promo said 'Any' dining or fashion gc. This time it's more specific even listing the participating merchants gc.
*might still be worth it if you like Dominos. 10x gas - $7 coupon exp. 1/02/18

I'm waiting for the $10 off visa for the freedom apple pay 1st qt.
