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.

Noooo! why are they running it every time Im leaving the Country. I'll have 3 days to do it when I get back, which isnt simple when I want to use only 1 CC for it and dont want to raise any red flags. The last one I had 1 day, I guess its better then no days but hate having those amounts appear 1 day after the next instead of some space between them

Not even the "Hi SoSo, Would you like to use 1.55 you have?" . I cancelled and tried again. No such luck. I think I tried once more. Same thing. I gave up. Needing gas, I went to another station and was offered some odd number off a gallon (like $.45 off) . I needed gas so I said yes. Got some gas. I checked Stop and Shop rewards it said 0 points left before leaving the Shell station. I drove to work . About 20 minutes later, I checked my Stop and Shop App and I have roughly the 3500+ points that I started the day with. The Fuel Rewards app never changed shows Gold Status 5c/a gal and Stop and Shop Reward $3.5 a gallon and shows prices at stations I would expect. I have not gotten the normal email from the transaction today either (which I would normally get in about 2-3 minutes after getting gas).

I have been a member for probably around2 years. I have never seen this before. I'm thinking maybe its just a fluke?
Last night I had a pump say reward count invalid/inactive a couple of times. Seems it didnt like the multiple fill ups. Waited a minute or two and everything went through. Didnt switch pumps.

The bonus offer at Stop & Shop for a $15 off your next order coupon for buying $150 or more in V/MC on top of the 2x gas points is pretty sweet. Giant-Pa doesn't have that advertised. Not sure if Giant-MD is getting that or not.
thebat and financialhippie like this.

I-95 Gas

Just looking for a little help. Traveling to Myrtle Beach. Do any of you I-95 travelers know which gas stations in Virginia or North Carolina us S&S gas rewards. I am traveling from north Jersey. I usually leave with a full tank. I stop at exit 130 in Virginia that works. Does any one know any others. I"m not sure if fuel rewards work deeper south in NC and SC. Thanks for the help

The FR app is the best way to check if your points will work along your chosen route. It shows the cost (after points) at each station

The FR app would be good if it worked, it appears to me to show no discount for the station mentioned in the prior post at exit 130, yet I have gotten one several times.

Maybe too far south for travel to MB, but: full discount (Giant + S&S) at I-95 Exit #157 , 3805 W Palmetto St, Florence, SC 29501.
Also: further south on I-95 Exit 57, 1653 Bells Hwy, Walterboro, SC 29488

Does the coupon say 1 per household? It usually says a limit of 10 per household. If it did say 10, did you show them that?

The coupon says 1 per household and also 10 offers per household. She saw 1 per household and stuck onto that.
