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.

The walmart MO methods didn't work anymore at central NJ. There is no easy and cost effective way to cash out those VGC anymore.

I'm so sick of the points not showing and the CSR at S&S saying "oh, just wait 24 hours and they'll show up". Well, no. The times I've waited 72 hours, they never showed up and I had to make another trip to the store and waste my time to get the freaking points. Never thought I'd say this, but I'm out. I drove right past a S&S today that's a block from a good wal*Mart with my MO accepting credit union on the way home and just thought "not worth it anymore".

You can call 1 (877) 366-2668 instead of going in store to have points added. The transactions don’t show up for them until the next day.

Talked to some S&S employees and it seems the NY area(LI at least) has someone messing with the GCs at multiple locations, so all S&Ss around me have pulled them for now, and waiting on "new packaging." Stinks cause I planned to load up this time around.

Looking for someone in the S&S area to fill $4k for me for a fee. I’ll no longer be in the Giant area but would appreciate if someone could hook my family members from the S&S area. PM me how much you want for this service. Thank you!

I did not. Do you think they would have honored the 2x points? Interesting if they would.

You must be from Long Island. I was in your same boat. All the managers at 4 locations around me were unwilling to help. Like did they really just throw all of them away overnight 😒. Sucks, we missed out on a great promo smh
