THIS IS A NEW THREAD FOR 2018. The previous thread is here.
***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.
[Expired] 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.

You can earn gas points from both regular grocery shopping and gift card purchases (promotion only).

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 behavior 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.

The bonus coupon seems to be for Stop & Shop only. I didn't see it in either Giant ad.

use of multiple coupons

Has anyone gotten multiple $15 coupons and tried to use more than one coupon (each in a separate transaction)? I have multiple coupons and noticed that the barcode for the offer on each coupon is the same, so I'm wondering if the system would detect if I were to use more than one coupon.

I have used several of these coupons (all in separate transactions)

I have bought 1 x $500 VGCs in ten separate transactions for limit per account total of 10 $15 off coupons. All barcodes were the same and all were used in separate transactions at self check out successfully. Working on P2's account today for 10 more today.

That's why the coupon has to be surrendered as the same one can be used infinitely if not taken away.

Combine points from more than one program. S&S, Giant-MD, Hy-vee, Winn-Dixie, Bi-Lo, and a couple others. Refer a lot of people. You could also buy a lot of GCs at Shell, but not a great return.

I've purchased Visa gift cards from Giant to meet the minimum spend requirement on Amex cards and have had no issues with receiving the sign-up bonus.

What is the benefit to buying Visa gc instead of MC gc in this case since the MC has the extra 2X?

I have more gas points from the MCGC promo than I'll use by the time they expire so I bought the VGCs due to the ease of liquidation in my area compared to MCGCs .
