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. I checked LAX, PSP, LAS, PHX and TUS areas and all were "no go." When Giant/S&S has these gift card sales, it's worth going to the FR locator site and matching it with your 30-day travel plans. But you may need to have existing points to "tell" if it will work. I'm sure folks here who have points will be happy to check for travellers who don't currently have points.

Fuel Rewards allows you to link multuple loyalty programs to your FR accounts. When you create a S&S or Giant account you are almost instantly asked if you want to link that account to your FR rewards account by entering your FR account information. If you open one of each account and link them to FR during the account opening you will see them show up in your FR account under the "Manage Loyalty Cards" section.

Havent seen any pink ones, by me the Meta cooper 2027 didnt post, called up was told must wait 24 hrs till corp can see it and post the pts. In the past I ran into a brick wall when I also made another purchase of gcs on the day I called up for retro credit as they said I already had the pts posted for today, my advice is not to make any purchase of gcs on the day you will get retro credit, I wont make another purchase until at least the day following retro credit being posted to avoid what I went thru the last time or at least not any Metas

Bought two styles of USB MC cards today, points posted correctly for both. PINs are in package. Giant NVa.

ETA: I bought (i) plain blue, just says GIFT CARD in block letters, UPC 0-76750-10737, and (ii) purple bow, UPC 0-76750-21026-6.

Gold package didn't post. This is so frustrating. Why the hell can't Stop & Shop figure out how to code all of the cards that should be counted? I didn't leave the CSR counter and they put them in manually. I immediately saw them post via my phone on the FR page.

Youre lucky,the stores near me al refuse to do it manually, the idiots try to put in the whole amount , and refuse to do 500 at a time. You should see their faces after telling how they can do it at 500 at a time, like a deer looking into on coming headlights. CS # says must wait 24 hrs till they can see it, god thing I still have 1500 remaining to fill up tomorrow, the good thing is it wont get don eto Mon or tues buys me some more time till they expire
