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.

I've seen a few people mention, but adding a data point that 1999+2000 both got points. Limit is now $2000, so presumably 4K is my new max per week.

Does the $1999 include card fees or just the face amount of the loads?

Does not include fees. With them went over 2K. I'm assuming you could go up to $1999.99 (which I would prefer for unloading) but can somebody confirm?

use card reader as soon as you get home to see it card is compromised and spend funds right away if the card reader doesn't read the same info format as a good card

compromised cards usually drained to targets

Haven't seen any compromised cards yet from the new packaging as noted above in post #4535, not to say that there won't be.
My local S&S thinks the new style cards are all compromised because they look different and won't sell them, but said I could buy the other style.

​​​​​​ Found a stack of compromised cards while looking for old style ones. At least the ones I found, they should raise suspicion for the for anyone who has been buying cards for a while, as they looked obviously messed with (slightly bubbled, almost like they had been wet.) Should've gotten a picture but will do that if I find more

another dp: 2k bought in NOVA, points posted immediately after purchasing.
Now here comes the interesting part. The app allows me to redeem points of up to $2.00 per gal. Does anyone know if that will work in NOVA? I don't want to redeem $2 per gal only to be given $1.50 at the pump. Maybe its a VA thing only?

you have it wrong, the app will allow you convert 2k Giant to Gas pts at a time. When you get to the gas pump it will only use a max of 1.5k of your Gas balance. There will be 500 gas pts left for use on your next trip
libuser and centrifuge41 like this.
