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.

Yep. Hope it doesn't mean good promos stop for a few months. If anyone wants to cooperate please PM me. I'm in NJ/S&S and looking for Giant VA/MD to load next Thursday to at least extend the points an extra week.

So just as an FYI, it's not such an easy process to link a Giant MD card with a Stop&Shop card. I tried to follow the instructions (since deleted in this thread) which I think said to use a different phone number and email for your second grocery loyalty account. The problem I had is that when I joined Stop&Shop (I already had a Giant card) the system automatically enrolled me in a NEW Fuel Rewards account. Since I couldn't fix this online, I called FR customer service. They told me to go back to my Stop&Shop account and delete my participation with FR. I did so. They claim that in 24 hours, I can sign in again and add my existing (Giant) FR card. We'll see what happens. But don't expect this to be easy, and I might suggest that "cooperating" with someone could be more complicated than you might like.

I followed the previous posters instructions and everything worked as described. Was pleasantly surprised I was actually able to get $3.05/gallon. The page after signing up for your S&S account, it will ask you to join FR. There's a link near the top you can click if you already have an FR account. Click that and sign into your existing FR account. You should see both S&S and Giant accounts under Manage Loyalty Cards. Why did that guy's posts get deleted?

I'm glad it worked for you. I'm not sure why I was automatically signed up for a new FR account when I signed up for a S&S card. The FR agent told me that, by deleting it, it will drop off my account in 24 hours and then I'll be able to link my existing FR account, but so far this hasn't happened.

I would suggest signing up for a new S&S account maybe with a different browser and follow the steps. I personally have 5 different S&S accounts.

I believe so. THis is giantfood.com, not giantfoodstores.com. They have different rules for the gas points.

So to clarify, all Giant, except for Giant PA will stack with S&S gas?

Giant PA only works at S&S in PA and has no limit?
