THIS IS A NEW THREAD FOR 2018. The previous thread is here.
***If you buy gift cards outside promotions, you will earn ZERO points.***

Giant MD and Stop & Shop's points now stack with Shell's Fuel Rewards. See more here.
If you link a Mastercard to Fuel Rewards, you will earn an additional $0.15/gal for every $100 spent on anything at Giant/S&S with that card through the end of the year.


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.

Feel free to update this Wiki or suggest improvements. The goal is to help all of us spend less on gas!

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 behaviour 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.

5x Bass Pro Shop next week. Feels like we should be due for another VISA/MC soon. Maybe the week after.

It better to be the week after- that way the points will expire in end of March.

IIRC, in past years we do not see much activity until March, with things picking up pace in the summer months.

Bad news. Ebay is not letting me purchase gift cards using the Ebay gc I just bought at Stop and Shop. I've tried Appleby's, Home Depot, Sears and Walmart. This is not good.

Correct. You can't use eBay GC's for other GC's. It's been like that for at least 6 months, if not longer.

It's been more than a year, I think. It makes holding onto ebay money not so valuable. At the same time, Amazon changed its policy to allow gift card funds to be used for other gift cards.

Correct; My records from 2016 and 2017 show no Giant Visa/MC GC promos from mid-Dec until early March.

Next promo to earn gas pts *likely* March 2 / 9 / 16, 2018...

Next week is UBER, JCPenny, GameStop, Ruby Tuesday, and some more store cards.
Nothing of much interest

Recently bought my usual $500 VGC at S&S with my linked Mastercard on FR and I only received 15 cents/gal on my fuel rewards, which is only 3 cents/$100 spent. I've been getting 15 cents/$100 spent, which equates to 75 cents/gal for each $500 VGC purchased at S&S. Anybody else getting the same?

How recently was that? My purchases from the beginning of Feb posted as expected. Is it possible that you've hit the promotion limit?

With no other Giant Visa/MC promos, I've been buying 3 $500 Visas every couple weeks, which gets me $2.25 off a gallon (plus several more cents from other promos). No problems with posting; the points show up after 2 days. The promo limit is $125, right? So this means I can do this 55 times, right? That's not going to be a problem for most folks.

Actually, I mixed up the two different FR cards I had. I did receive the correct discount as usual. I really hope Shell extends this past 3/31/18.

Giant

I can tell you for myself one giant store near me doesn’t post the mastercard deal correctly at all, not even on groceries. While the next closes store posts correctly everytime. I verified this my checking my fuel rewards transactions
