Topic Wiki

The deal: 2x, 3x, 4x (or rarely, 5x) Gas Points per GC at Stop and Shop and Giant stores. Sometimes it's all GCs, sometimes just one or two types. Be sure to look at the current circular carefully for details

Credit cards CAN now be used to purchase visa/MC/Amex gift cards. :D

You will not get any Stop & Shop points on Gift Cards that are bought when there is no promotion.

You can get 1 Gas Point for every dollar you spend at S&S, Giant or Peapod all the time, and there are usually a few options in the circular to get bonus points, besides GCs. Be sure to have your S&S card scanned before purchasing or you won't get any Gas Points. You usually have to pay for GCs at the Customer Service desk, which may or may not ask for ID.

Gas Points expire 30 days after they are earned. You can check your current balance by logging in here: http://www.stopandshop.com/savings-and-rewards/rewards-program/gas-rewards/. There is also quite a bit of good general information about how the program works at that link, including a way to look up participating Shell stations and Stop & Shop stores with gas stations.

Gas Points are redeemable at Stop & Shop stores with gas stations and at participating Shell stations only. Not all Shell stations participate. It is recommended that you find out about station participation before driving around looking for one with your gas light on. :)

The link above also has instructions about how to redeem your Gas Points at Shell both within and outside of NJ. (NJ outlaws self-service gas, so it has a little bit different procedure than in other states.)

The maximum redemption is 1500 points per fill, or $1.50 off per gallon, up to 20 gallons, but be aware that if you or the attendant enters your S&S card, your full point balance up to 1500 will be taken for any size fill. Any remaining points above 1500 will remain in your account. The minimum redemption is 100 points ($0.10 off/gal).

Please use
your common sense and do not ruin this deal for others (and yourself) by doing various things that might antagonize or aggravate gas station attendants in your attempt to maximize the 20 gallon limit per redemption. (For instance, the official rules at the link above say that a redemption may be used for one vehicle only.)

Abusing this deal will only mean that gas station owners will be less likely to continue to participate, and that S&S and Shell will be less likely to continue the program going forward.

To get the Cash price without paying cash you can get a refillable shell GC here: http://www.shell.us/products-services/shell-cards/refillable.html
It's refillable online by Visa or Mastercard. Even better: buy a Shell GC at Staples using an Ink card, and get 5 points per dollar.

You have a 20 gallon tank?
Lots of minivans can take 20 gallons. You gotta keep pumping after it clicks off.

Have you ever seen an airplane on line at Shell?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Slightly off topic: Next week, Mar. 17-23: Buy $250 Visa GCs, get $15 S&S voucher (voucher exp. April 6).
Also, get 400 points for 6 Kleenex tissues (210) @ $2.50 each.

In my area the max gallons is 25 and there is no max discount. So free gas but only as much as I can use for this and next month.

Also, get 400 points for 6 Kleenex tissues (210) @ $2.50 each.
Let's think this through.  Please CMIIW.  We will be paying $12 for two $200 in order to save $15 if we remember to bring and use our coupon.  I suppose in this case we might as well buy the $50 visa for $4 (?) so we'd be paying $10, profiting $5 plus the hassle to liquidate the VGCs. 

For the Kleenex, we are probably overpaying each box by .50 (?) x six boxes, that's $3.  400 points is .27 of the necessary 1500 points to get the $1.50 discount off of 30 gallons.  That means that 400 points is worth $8 (or $6.60 in my case of 25 gallons usually).  Bottom line, we are profiting $5 for a lot of running around or $5 stocking up on 6 boxes of Kleenex.  Kleenex is probably more worth it.

Now that we know how little we are making, how many of us are still going to do either one of these deals?

I don't know the going rate for tissues in your area but I don't buy until I can get 3ply for around $1 ish a box. Our weekly flyer had a coupon for 5x the gas points for grocery purchase over $100. I think you'd do better to find things you normally purchase or items that are great deals and stock up using that coupon. Did that coupon come in your flyer?

Also there are coupons listed in the app that load to your card and come off automatically at checkout. I load them all so I don't have to think about checking them.

No need to buy $200 cards. Variable cards go up to $500. So it's $6 to save $15. As far as remembering to bring the voucher along, if you're not that organized, you really should not be playing these games. ::)
Re the liquidation hassle, again, if you don't have an easy way, you're absolutely right; it's not worth it. :)
ETA: You're paying about 1% in fees, which is offset by a simple cc with 1 ppd. If you have a cc that has bonus categories, it's actually a net gain even before the gas points.

Don't forget to factor in all the time spent doing the math :)

Next week too, through March 30.
Also, some decent deals on Pesach cleaning products, 500 points for 5 items. :)
