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.

I saw that some of my rewards from VGC purchases done in February expire 4/30/18, so I’m hopeful that they are extending it.

10x for google play gift cards next week (2/16-22).

if the google store accepted these, i would have bought a pixel 2. too bad.

might be worthwhile if you use google play music, which includes youtube red. their family plan is excellent; i’m considering switching from spotify.

Do you have to punch in your ALT ID number if you're doing the FR MC promotion, or do all purchases on linked CCs at S&S automatically get sent to FR?

All purchases made at S&S with the MC you linked to your FR account will automatically be sent to FR. At least, that's what's happened on my account. Haven't needed to do anything extra.

My giants are variable locolly, meaning some specif stores transfer all mastercard purchases to fuel rewards and at least one giant store transfers no purchases gift cards or othwise to fuel rewards. I fould probably fight it, but I don’t want to alwet them, and the stores that work are sufficient for me needs.

Just noticed the MC purchases made after March says there’s an expiration of 5/31, so I guess the supermarket MC FR deal had been extended another month, which is amazing news.

FRs earned in March will be good til the end of May, but there's no indication that points can be earned past 3/31. Am I right?

It's overdue for a Visa/MC GC gas points deal. There have been one in Jan and Feb.

Same as the years before. We usually don't see Visa / MC deals most of the winter.
