***If you buy gift cards outside promotions, you will earn ZERO points.***

Giant MD and Stop & Shop's points now stack with Shell's Fuel Rewards. See more here.
If you link a Mastercard to Fuel Rewards, you will earn an additional $0.15/gal for every $100 spent on anything at Giant/S&S with that card through the end of the year.


Accepted tender: Cash, credit, and debit. Also available are mobile/contactless payment (Apple Pay, etc.) and mobile loyalty (card barcode via app).

Summary
Stop & Shop (S&S), Giant Food Stores (Giant PA), and Giant Food (Giant MD) offer points for purchases which can be redeemed for a discount on the price paid per gallon on fuel sales at Shell and S&S/Giant fuel stations. $100* spend = 100 pts = 10c/gal discount. The particular rules vary between the three brands, and within Giant PA, the rules vary by location. Refer to the bottom of this wiki post for more information or links to official info from each brand.

Feel free to update this Wiki or suggest improvements. The goal is to help all of us spend less on gas!

Additional Information

• A loyalty card is required to take advantage of gas rewards. They look like the above image and can be obtained either online (links at end of wiki) or in-person (at the customer service counter).

• The cards currently on promotion are listed in the current weekly circular and usually change every week. VISA and MC from Metabank or US Bank for $20-$500 (plus $5.95 fee) work. For GCs, if it meets the previous requirements, the packaging (blue, silver, birthday cake, etc.) doesn't matter! Check the issuing bank on the back.

• S&S and Giant (DC, DE, MD, and VA) allow you to redeem up to 1500 points ($1.50/gal) per fuel purchase, and points expire 30 days after the qualifying purchase. With Giant PA, there is no limit to the number of points redeemed at one time.

• Points earned in one program cannot be used in another program.

• Your ID may be required when buying gift cards. Your name and other info may also be recorded for purchases over a discretionary dollar value. Whether you're buying a $100 card or a $5k stack, your experience will vary.

• You can view your account online using the link at the bottom of the wiki.

• It's best to purchase gift cards at the customer service counter, but reports state that a single $500 gift card can be paid for at any register without an issue. Purchases over $1k will require manager authorisation with a physical key, which may slow down the queue. You can go to the Solution Center to save time and make things easier for everyone.

• Giant Eagle and Giant Food are different chains with different ownership, and this thread is not relevant to the former.

• If you have more points in your account than are redeemed for a fuel purchase, then the remaining points will stay in your account until their respective expiration date(s). For example, if you have 2500 points and debit the 1500 ($1.50/gal) maximum, you will have 1000 points left. Similar behaviour if gas is ever below $1.50/gal before discount.

• If you don't receive eligible points with your purchase due to system or human error, you can have them retroactively added by customer service (in-store or by phone). Have your receipt and a copy of the advert. It can take up to 24 hours for keyed points to appear in your account.

so perhaps a minor takeaway, at least for the new pumps, is to use your FR number for the extra 5 cents.
Good DP, that is the exact same set-up as my Shell, think I need to start using my FR card instead of the S&S card.

Official policy is no as evident on sign at CS desk. Not hard coded so sporadic single swipe purchases ok at some stores, but forget about scaling up or doing split transactions

Not true. There's a CS person at my local S&S that I'm cool with and he lets me buy $998 MO's, split transaction, so long as the manager is not around. Just need to find a CS that DGAF.

Ok, so that is starting to make sense. If you ONLY have S&S points, it only uses enough to discount $1.50 from S&S, then it adds the FR points to continue the discount. As I had something like $3 in FR points, that makes complete sense now that I was able to get to 1.9 cents a gallon.

Has anyone had any success using the digital coupon for 10 off grocery when purchase $100 MC GC?

I tried to use it with a $500 variable MC GC today and it did not work.

Didn't come off automatically at Giant. Asked about it and they took off $10. Tried at a Stop & Shop, they said it was a coupon that would print out for the next order, but didn't. Received $10 at CS desk.

Only took the $10 off automatically on one of three S&S accounts that I had loaded the digital coupon to. The CSRs did take the $10 off manually on the other two accounts.

    • Select “Credit” when checking out.
  • Earn 15˘/gal for every $100 you spend with a linked Mastercard.

So does this offer work if you buy a gift card?

Yes, it does. I already used the MC points from $2k MC GC purchases the last time S&S had them as a promo.

I found at least 3 bugs in their systems.

I had more than $6 credits in S&S account and $4.5 in Shell account, linked to each other. Bought fuel from S&S station on 10/29, only $1.5 discount applied. 3 bugs as follows:

1. The total discount should cover the gas price, but only $1.5 discount applied.

2. In S&S account, 1500 points deducted from points with late Oct. expiration date rather than points with 10/3 expiration date.

3. Both S&S account and FuelReward account lost 1500 points after the transaction. So they deducted 3000 points total for $1.5 discount.

Please be aware of the bugs, and share your experience. In particular, is there similar bugs at Shell stations?

no problems at shell stations so far. I think the system is still evolving. It used to be (several days ago) that if you use SS card number at a shell station, you get $1.50 off + whatever FR discount. Now SS card number only get $1.50 off but using FR account number seemed to combine both.

Interesting, my S&S number and Shell Alt ID are the same. I always choose Alt ID and punch in the number, get $1.55 off/gallon (5 cents from Fuel Rewards Gold) am I missing anything else?
