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.

Thanks. Sounds like an IT issue. I've seen no mention of Giant ending its relationship with Shell (this does sometimes happen with supermarket gas programs). If somebody successfully buys gas in a now "unlisted" Shell station in the area -- or the stations start showing up on the website again -- please let us know.

Unfortunately, the Fuel Rewards program does not manage the Shell E-receipts. We are sorry for any inconvenience. Please note that not all stations provided e-receipts. You can contact Shell customer care regarding this matter.

So much to respond too.. there are a number of places that dont show the actual discount.

emails do not appear to be working for me since 6/10. All you have to do is go to fr.com website and view all transactions. If really need the receipt just go to fr site

not sure how gas prices not showing up on app are related to no emails.

I noticed the same thing as far back as mid April to mid May. None of the stations in the areas where I usually buy gas (central to northern Montgomery County to Frederick) along the 270 corridor were showing the discount. When I visited one station (Shell in Frederick near exit 31) in mid-May, the gas was discounted.

I got three e-receipts last night/this morning from fill ups over the last week. I had turned the e-receipt notifications off and then on; not sure if that's what pushed it through or what.

So I left the flex points in my account to get close to 60 days out of them, had 45,000 expiring on 6/20. Well that means they are gone 6/20 and I didnt have a chance to transfer them to gas or grocery rewards. Use this as an FYI but also want to know if its possible to get expired points reinstated or moved to the appropriate bucket. Any DPs?

Has anyone successfully set up GO points account for S&S that can be used to redeem points for grocery? Is the system not ready yet? I heard Flex reward for Giant was up and running long time ago.

Based on the last couple of years there should be another promo around 7/16 so there's no need to stock up too much if you have a lot of Gas Rewards. Do any of you have any idea if/when the gas expiration will go back to 30 days?
