Stop & Shop and Giant supermarkets gas rewards points on gift card purchases(2018-24)

THIS IS A NEW THREAD FOR 2018. The previous thread is here.
***If you buy gift cards outside promotions, you will earn ZERO points.***



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).

The grocery reward points (Go Rewards or Flexible Reward) can be transferred to either gas points (Fuel Rewards) or grocery points. The conversion rate is 100 points = $0.10/gallon or 100 points = $1 saving in grocery.

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 station could be rebranding. Also, sometimes the app doesn’t display it correctly, but you went there so that’s probably not the case. Easiest thing to do is go in and ask them.

Sometimes a station will be offline or have a temporary glitch. It's happened to me several times before. Just try again at another time.

so is this the right math/logic....buy a Happy for $500 which translates to $5 in gas pts, assume you use 25 gallons/fill, thats ~$125 you save plus CC points/miles and the purchase of another GC at HD w/ happy and/or either using/selling that GC? i'm planning some renovation work so the HD spend savings w/happy card is my motivation.

You can only use $1.50 in fuel points per fill up. So you can fill up 3 times at $1.50/gal off each of those times (plus a bit left over for the fourth fill up).

So, at 25 gal/fill, you'd save $1.50 x 25 = $37.50 each of three times ($112.30).

Sorta the same logic, just know you'd have to get 25 gallons worth three times before the points expire in a month.

op would also save $0.50 on a fourth tank so OP’s $125 was correct

Correct, but just pointing out it's not all at once. I for one don't fill up four times in a month.

OP is likely to be let down.. also if it’s like my area shell stations are $0.20-.30 higher than the low gas stations

Drats! I’ve been hitting it hard on the master cards at two times earning versus the visa three times earning.

True, shell is generally more expensive than other stations, but Shell is also Top Tier gas, for more information, please see www.toptiergas.com , not that it really matters, ppl have their own opinion on gas. But with Shell nitro 93 , I can feel the difference in my car. my car is not even fancy.

I'm looking for anyone who can topple my S&S account, on either 2x or 3x this week and upcoming. PM me please.

Let me clarify, I'm in S&S area myself, but occasionally I travel to Delaware and Baltimore, bypass at least 2 or 3 Giant MD on the way, some Giant PA if i push it. But I'm currently mainly looking for someone who can just topple my S&S. (I don't need the whole $3.00 off, 1.50 is enough for me)

Other parts of the US there is no price difference b/w shell and other brands. Each area has its quirks
