Title: Gift Card and gas Promo at Stop & Shop or Giant
Post by: E R K on November 19, 2013, 10:55:35 PM
If you live near a Stop and Shop or Giant store and have their rewards card, you can buy gift cards this week (through 11/21) to get 4X points for gas rewards. I bought a $500 MC GC, paid 505.95 for it that I'll cash out and get that much closer to a spend threshold and get $2 off A GALLON of gas up to 35 gallons at Shell stations to save $70 off gas. My husband and I take both our cars and a gas container to receive all 35 gallons. Of course you can also buy store GC without any fees.

So if I buy $500 GC, I'd get $2.20 off/gallon up to 35 gallons.

If I buy three $500 GC in separate transactions, would I be able to do it three times?

Gas points expire 30 days after purchase. I fill up 2 cars and put extra in a 5 gallon gas can from Home Depot. Max you can get off at my gas station is $2.20/gal so when I'm low on gas I'll use the remainder b4 the 30 days.

Lol, but I don't think we're disagreeing.
If you have more than one "fill-up" in your account, the "unused" carry over (until they expire).
But, the amount of points you decide to use for this fill(-up) get used regardless of how many gallons you pump (up to 35).
Clear enough?

Edit: For example: If I have 8800 points, I can fill up 4 times at a discount of $2.20, up to 35 gallons, using 2200 points per fill-up.
But if I only pump 10 gallons, it still spends the same 2200 points.
But I still have 6600 points in my account.
Title: Re: Gift Card and gas Promo at Stop & Shop or Giant
Post by: E R K on February 05, 2014, 04:15:49 PM
You can use 35 gallons at one time $2.20 off/ gallon. That leaves you $.30 /gallon off for next time but b4 30 days otherwise you lose it. Btw you need a S&S  card.

Not sure where you're getting this $.30 off per gallon.
And a Stop and Shop card doesn't cost money nor do they pull your credit for it.

$500 GC x 5 times gas rewards = $2.50  off per gallon. You can only use $2.20 at a time. That leaves $.30 left over for another time b4 30 days.
And of course there's no credit pull for the store card. You have a 1 track mind! LOL

In NY its not a problem because the discount is taken beforehand so 35 gallons will not get to $99 in NJ its calculated after so your only option is to use cash.

personal experience was referring to visa gc not earning points.
And you don't pay with the s&s card, you use it to claim your discount

s 2 k simply said visa gc don't earn points
I advised against using shell gcs at the pump because you need to have enough money on it to cover the full price as the discount comes off later.so even with a 100 gc you're losing out

Buy fewer GCs? :)

They do last 30 days too, so depending on how much driving you do, you may have more than one fill up before they expire.

You may even have some DDF takers if you wanted to make a deal with people. Probably not this thread, though, since people will probably have their own points. :)

Correct. But if you have 2200 or more points, it will use 2200 points each time, no matter if you fill up just one gallon or 35.

I'm not 100% sure of the fee on those 100s, and obviously they aren't optimal, but simple math would seem to say that if you are pumping more than 10 gallons or so at a time, you still might come out ahead on the gas, not to mention the CC spend and points.

My S&S has a large GC kiosk, but then also small displays near each cashier, facing the main isle across the store. Some of these smaller displays get blocked by other products or displays. If your S&S is similar, be sure to look in both places.

Can anyone clarify: I live in New Jersey and I own 2 gas cans and one van.... Now if I go to fill up at the local shell where gas is 3.29 a gallon, I will hit the $99 limit at about 30 gallons and not 35. So will it stop at $99 or at the 35 gallons? I'm just trying to see if it's worth getting more gas cans...
Title: Re: Gift Card and gas Promo at Stop & Shop or Giant
Post by: HDS on February 19, 2014, 03:45:00 PM
1. What $99 limit?

2. Even if there is one, if you use the S&S deal and lower the price of the gas, you won't hit it. For instance, if you do as suggested and have 2200 gas points ($2.20 off per gallon), when you fill up, the pump will read $1.0999 when you start pumping.

Very confusing deal reading the posts, but easy once you do it.

Summary:  [please correct me if I still have it wrong]

Five parts to best take advantage of this deal
1) Buying items (GCs included)-- at S&S gets you discount posted on your S&S card (5x normal amount)
2) Buying Bonus-        Free 6 pack of soda with >$25 purchase  [I think this part is over now]
3) The GCs you buy-  specific GCs in flyer automatically give 5x pts (includes MC, no Visa-but see if mgr will manually add discount pts)
4) Paying for the GCs- same as any regular purchase
5) Buying the gas-      In addition to swiping your S&S, use cash or CC (same as any regular purchase) 

Additionally:
1)  Must buy gas only at Shell Stations 
2) *NY and NJ have different ways of calculating discount at pump
3) *Limits: [35 gallons and $99]
4)  Suggestions from members- fillup >1 car and/or gas cans without putting nozzle back to maximize 35 gallons (against written rules)
5)  Thursday midnight, 2/20/14, offer expires to accumulate new 5x pts
6)  Accumulated discount points on S&S card expire>30 days

*  see DDF posts

I just picked up four in Dumont NJ... I called ahead but they said only cash and when I got there I can't do more than $2,000 at register. I got $1,946 which with the fees was $1,999.80. I still think it is a good deal just for the discounted gas without any shtick. $2.20 of a fourteen gallon tank is still $25 off a tank after fees. I also unloaded two gift cards earlier this week onto Bluebird at Walmart. I called to get a PIN for the card and changed the payment type to debit and it worked. The person behind the cashier didn't know you can do that, but I picked that tidbit up on Dan's post.

Thanks Dan.

Very confusing deal reading the posts, but easy once you do it.

Summary:  [please correct me if I still have it wrong]

Five parts to best take advantage of this deal
1) Buying items (GCs included)-- at S&S gets you discount posted on your S&S card (5x normal amount)
2) Buying Bonus-        Free 6 pack of soda with >$25 purchase  [I think this part is over now]
3) The GCs you buy-  specific GCs in flyer automatically give 5x pts (includes MC, no Visa-but see if mgr will manually add discount pts)
4) Paying for the GCs- same as any regular purchase
5) Buying the gas-      In addition to swiping your S&S, use cash or CC (same as any regular purchase) 

Additionally:
1)  Must buy gas only at Stop & Shop or Shell Stations. Click for participating locations. (http://www.stopandshop.com/savings/shell_program.htm)
2) *NY and NJ have different ways of calculating discount at pump
3) *Limits: [35 gallons and $99]
4)  Suggestions from members- fillup >1 car and/or gas cans without putting nozzle back to maximize 35 gallons (against written rules)
5)  Thursday midnight, 2/20/14, offer expires to accumulate new 5x pts
6)  Accumulated discount points on S&S card expire>30 days

*  see DDF posts
That looks 100% correcto.

Not quite 100% correct. FTFY.

Yes. If you just swipe the MC it will automatically be processed as a CC which does not work with BB...the trick it to immediately press "change payment" to debit based PIN and use it that way. You need to call and set up a PIN before trying this as I don't think the last four numbers work as an automatic PIN but I could be wrong. In any event, it certainly works, I just loaded two $500 MC GC's onto BB this week using this method.

The question was not a serious one rather a rhetorical one. Why would you do that? Did you not read the wikis? people have been shut down from BB for doing just that.

I had no problems loading these MC to BB at walmart. The only real problem I have is trying to find a working BB machine, i swear they are down 90% of the time. I've been able to receive 2.50 off per gallon in a single gas transaction. Going to pick up 3 more today to load up, I've been saving $38 on each pump, minus the fee its $32. Still great

Not at my giant store, circular states it goes till 2/22 and gas is valid till 3/15. I think there are different varieties of stores, my store is giantfoodstore.com. there is a giantfood.com and then stop and shop which are different. I think the latter went till 2/20

Pretty sure they are now the same company, but circulars may differ, of course.

I'm also pretty sure the gas expires 30 days after the purchase/points-earned date, but you can check your balance on your receipt, or on the web site.

At least on the S&S site, it even tells you when your points will expire.

Yea circulars might be different. but will double check today when i hit up the giant by my work. My receipt says 3/15, maybe S&S differes, that date didn't change when i purchased the gift cards last week or this week. Giant has an app, its a pretty bad app but it'll tell you how many points your have, how much gas credit you have and when they expire.

I searched for the circular online but S&S seems to have decided to post some of the deals, but not the actual circular. Oh, and to make the search feature kind of dumb.

The 30 day expiration of gas rewards points makes it worth it to time your purchases carefully.

keep in mind that sometimes its not worth it if you're not redeeming enough points. the shell near my house is more expensive than the hess (sometimes by 10 cents) because of the cash/cc pricing. The rewards will reduce the price from the CC price (at least at my shell)

up to 35 gallons in one fill up. I take my wifes car and mine at the same time and i fill up some gas cans as well.
Also keep in mind that some CCs have a limit on how much you can spend at a gas station at one time so for example the last time I went I couldnt get 35 gallons because I reached the price limit before 35 gallons

NJ  people have a choice of using a CC for gas and getting less gallons or paying up to $2.20 less per gallon for 35 gallons if they pay in cash.
NY people don't have this issue.

Better to find a different S & S with Visa or MC GCs. Not sure if Paypower is in the circular ad for 3x points.

You can also pay with a Shell GC, which can save you $0.10 additionally, on top of the Gas Rewards savings, and can be bought for 5x points, unlike paying for the gas with a CC (usually).

I have done this in NY and NJ.

I have done this in NY and NJ.

The problem with that is with The high NY prices a $50 gift card wont cover the 35 gallons, and once The GC runs out it shuts off the pump and you lose your remaining gallons.

Buy a $100 gift card...?

But if you can't find one, if you are really doing a full 35 gallons, NJ prices are 40 cents less (on average) than regular NY prices, and much less than NYC prices. 35 x $0.40 = $14, which, depending on how you go and how much gas it costs you to get there (and how many people you take, and if you have a reason to be there anyway, etc. etc.) can make it worthwhile to go there for your 35 gallons - and save the extra 0.10 via gas card (the attendants should run however many you give them) and get the extra points on the Shell card bought via Ink or Freedom where appropriate.

The balance dwindles in increments of 2200 until the last fillup which is the remaining balance of points (unless you replenish points, of course).  Remember, points disappear from the balance 30 days after you receive them.

It's a red flag for the store to be adding gobs of gas points to someone's card, but when legit, the CS desk can/should do this without a problem.

I once forgot to give them my S&S card during the purchase and they did this, but they had to call the gas points people and confirm first. It was a bit of a hassle but it all got straightened out in the end.

Love to figure things out, but  ???  on this one.  Six $500 GCs gives you the 9k points at a cost of $35.70.  $10 credit on amex (oh..maybe more than one amex?).  $150 credit is 1% on Visa cards, but then why only 9k gas points?

Love to figure things out, but  ???  on this one.  Six $500 GCs gives you the 9k points at a cost of $35.70.  $10 credit on amex (oh..maybe more than one amex?).  $150 credit is 1% on Visa cards, but then why only 9k gas points?

6x AMEX (or 2, since you can redeem his offer three times) = $60 back, for a profit of $24.30

9000 points = 4 full redemption fill ups. That might be the number AJK plans to do in the 30 days (after which, the points expire).

Now, how do I get that AMEX offer is what I want to know? Can I tweet for it?

 ??? ?   ETA: Oh, didn't realize offer was for 3x.  Thanks!  But I still don't get why AJK only got 9k points instead of for the entire 15k.  Maybe he got the other 12k elsewhere.


I spoke to Amex on a few occasions and they stated that there is an outside marketing company who is in charge of these offers and that Amex can do nothing about it.   :(

There's no big mystery. He bought 6x $500 = $3000 of GCs = 9000 gas points. The liquidation comment wasn't related to his gas points GC purchase. :)

What I'm trying to figure out is how the heck is this worth it for stop and shop? Assuming you maximize the 35 gallons the discount is $77 for a $1000 gift card purchase. Even if they only pay shell .50 on the dollar for that discount it's not worth it for them?

That's not a reasonable assumption. Most will not arrive at the gas station with enough room in the tank for anywhere near 35 gallons. Furthermore, not everyone who buys the gift cards loads them to the maximum of $500; some choose a lower amount or buy the other cards with a set value.

Lol.  The points  expire after 30 days. 

How much do you think the average consumer spends on groceries per month? $700 at max?

How many gallons does the average vehicle hold? 17 gallons?

So it costs s&s (on average)  $11.90,  for a customer that spent $700.

That's a joke.

Now for the GC promo,  as someone said earlier,  most people don't get the full $500, and even if thry do,  they get 15-20 gallons. Not 35.

This is an official deal. They WANT you to buy GC's. The only loophole is buying with a CC. I would still buy it even with cash if that loophole is closed.

Filling up two cars with one discount is not allowed according to t&c. but I'd imagine filling up a car + 20 separate 1 gallon gas containers would be fine, if you're going to put those containers in the vehicle. Then, once your car made a kinyan, you can take it out & fill up other cars. Most people wouldn't go through that hassle to maximize the discount. Obviously, everybody follows the t&c!

This is from the FAQ at http://www.stopandshop.com/faqs/#gas
Q. can I use my discount on more than one vehicle at a time?
A. No. The discount can only be used on one vehicle, limited to the tank's capacity, not to exceed 35 gallons.

Or, what I posted upthread says it more specifically:
Here is a question and answer from the FAQ in the printed brochure:
Can I use my discount on more than one vehicle at a time or on a vehicle and gas can?
No. The discount can only be used on one vehicle, limited to the tank's capacity not to exceed 35 gallons.

By all means, maximize your savings in ways that do NOT:

a. embarrass yourselves, or making anyone who would understand what you are doing embarrassed to be a part of the human race with you, and

b. potentially ruin this deal for others by making specific stations more likely to leave participation, or abusing the system in ways that would contribute to S&S and Shell stopping the promotion.

For the record, in NJ they recently started calculating the savings before they fill your car (like NY) and not afterwards, like they've been doing until now, so now you can maximize the 35 gallons and put it all on a CC.

Because if they calculated it at the end the CC would stop @$90 which would be about 25 gallons. They can only authorize a CC up to $90.

Your profile does not include your location, so we don't know where you are on the way from. You can use this site (http://www.stopandshop.com/store/locator/) to search for participating Shell stations and for Stop & Shop stores that have gas stations.

I am finally getting in on this deal.

I signed up for a Stop and Shop card, and am ready to buy some gift cards in order to obtain points. Do I need to register my Stop and Shop card for the offer. It seems from reading the Wiki and parts of this thread, that all you need them to do is scan the card before your purchase, and you are automatically enrolled.

Please confirm. Thanks

I just thought of a possible loophole to get around paying the fees on the gift cards (visa, amex etc..). I suggest that you buy a stop and shop gift with card with X amount of money on it and then use that S&S gift card to buy more S&S gift cards the next time you want to refill on gas rewards.

Would this work? Can you buy store gift cards with a store gift card?

I assume you could get 1X gas points just like you could for buying anything in the store but it would take a lot more volume to rack up points.
FYI many stores don't let you buy GC's with GC's but don't know about S&S.

One final question. The best idea is to buy $550 in GC'S. This amount (550) multiplied by the current offer of 4X, will net 2200 in Gas Rewards points and subsequently $2.20 off per gallon. Is this correct?

Thanks!

And once you can only get $500, for almost the same price, you can just buy another $500 instead of a $50 card.
Title: Re: Gift Card and gas Promo at Stop & Shop or Giant
Post by: etech0 on June 19, 2014, 01:52:39 PM
$550 in GC'S = $500 plus $50, or any other combination.

However, you're better off buying 2 x $500 to get more for your $5.95 fee, and you'll be saving up more points for your next fuel up

I know. I was thinking of adding $50 via another type of GC, but it seems unnecessary and much better to do just spend another $500, and get the best bank for ur back for activation fee.

Wow. This is really an awesome amount of savings.

Last Question: If I print out my temporary stop and shop card, will it be good enough to earn the rewards when I go to the store?

Isn't the highest denomination of Shell GC $100? 
Upthread it says you can only use one CC, but one attendant said you could use more.  I didn't try. 


BTW, where (especially in NJ) are you going to have a bill more than $100 anyway now that they take the discount first?  Are there still stations out there in NJ that only take the discount after the gas total is posted?
In regard of using additional GC in 1 transaction. I tried in NY to use a additional GC in the same transaction after my $25 GC was redeemed and the machine gave a error message .

The station attendant  turned to my after I was done and said in a thick accent, "You are smart man, you are smart".

Everyone needs to be careful when filling up that the gas attendant does not memorize the card number and then fill up. Just today I filled up and he flipped over my stop and shop cad over for about 7 seconds, and then he pumped the gas and went inside to his little booth. I called the card number and lo and behold someone had filled up 5 gallons (what an idiot, at least max the fill up out !) 3 hours later at the same station. So I called the card number only to find out what I already know, stop and shop and walmart are in  close competition for the first place prize of "worst customer service". The lesson is, do not let the gas attendant look at the back of your card ! And this is not the first time an incident like this has happened, it happened to me at the same station (shell in mahwah NJ) except then I had no idea what had happened  :'(

22. Gallons. Used a CC.
Does the price per gallon get deducted when transaction starts,  or only at the end of thr transaction?

In NJ we used to have an issue -  that the deduction only hapened at the end. And thr cc only authorizes $90.

So if gas is originally $3.50,  you can only get 25.71 gallons.

Sounds like this is the issue he had. Next time use cash.

My friend filled up @ Shell (on 59 in Monsey) last night and they capped him at 22.04.

Anyone have a similar experience?
My friend's experience in that Shell was over 30 gallons & he paid by credit card afterwards.

Nope. Got 27. Also, tell your friend that next time he should drive 10 minutes to Mahwah off 17S and go to the Shell station there and save an additional 50 cents with NJ pricing.

For me, the deduction came in the beginning and as the gas was being pumped, the price reflected that.

It seems that they have them in stock, but they made a limit in how much money you can buy in GC"s. You should still be able to buy a $500 GC, why not? It'll just take some more effort.

You need to assume that there isn't such a glitch in their system. I would assume it'll go with the online total (updated one). Otherwise, you have discovered something.

I obtained those points; however, after I filled up four hours later, I only received the discount of 1800 points (1.80). If I call up tomorrow, will they adjust the price based on the amount of points I had in my account at the time of fill-up?

Yes, you are all correct and I did check. I was at the gas station with my light on, and wasn't going to wait until tomorrow for 40 cents a gallon, I just wanted to know if anyone has had any success with Stop and Shop adjusting the points retroactively, and I received my answer.

I still saved $60

A card that gives you extra points at the grocery is great. AmEx Blue Cash Preferred gives 6% on the first $6000 spent at the grocery. Citi sometimes offers 5% as a retention bonus. But if you can buy fee-free cards or $500 Visa cards, this is such a good deal that it remains worthwhile even if your card only gives you 1%.

If you bring two or three cars at once to the gas station and pump them all on one transaction, you can get the discount on 35 gallons to maximize your savings.

A card that gives you extra points at the grocery is great. AmEx Blue Cash Preferred gives 6% on the first $6000 spent at the grocery. Citi sometimes offers 5% as a retention bonus. But if you can buy fee-free cards or $500 Visa cards, this is such a good deal that it remains worthwhile even if your card only gives you 1%.

If you bring two or three cars at once to the gas station and pump them all on one transaction, you can get the discount on 35 gallons to maximize your savings.

Or the Blue Cash Card that is not Capped at 6000.00 :)

Over $500 and it becomes a pain for some cashiers to request a manager to come with an override. If you are buying multiples, just go straight to CS.

I was trying to buy only one 500 GC at the cashier as you suggested.  Was shot down for that too.  They told me that the cashier can only sell up to 200 and anything above that you have to go to CS.  And, as per store policy, you are only allowed one 500 GC per day.

It's like anything else we do.

Always be nice to people. Full stop.

Keep in mind that the amounts of money we throw around are plenty enough to get an employee fired if they mishandle something, or if their manager even thinks that there is a chance that they possibly mishandled something. The employees know that they are lucky to have these jobs, and also that their managers wouldn't have trouble finding someone to replace them if necessary.

Know when to ask to speak with a manager to verify a policy and when to politely fold your cards and go try another store.

Quote
Monetary Instrument Log (MIL)[edit]
The MIL must indicate cash purchases of monetary instruments, such as money orders, cashier's checks and traveler's checks, in value totaling $3,000 to $10,000, inclusive. This form is required to be kept on record at the financial institution, and produced at the request of examiners or audit to verify compliance. A financial institution must maintain a Monetary Instrument Log for five years.
Suspicious Activity Report (SAR)[edit]
Main article: Suspicious activity report
The SAR must report any cash transaction where the customer seems to be trying to avoid BSA reporting requirements by not filing CTR or MIL, for example. A SAR must also be filed if the customer's actions suggest that he is laundering money or otherwise violating federal criminal laws and committing wire transfer fraud, check fraud or mysterious disappearances. The bank should not let the customer know that a SAR is being filed. These reports are filed with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network ("FinCEN"). This requirement and its accompanying implied gag order was added by the Annunzio-Wylie Anti-Money Laundering Act § 1517(b) (part of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992, Pub.L. 102–550, 106 Stat. 3762, 4060).

I stand corrected on the financial institution aspect, as shown below.  Thus, as an issuer of MO's, it's falls within the purview of BSA.  That said, I am nonetheless still correct that BSA does not apply, as these are not cash transactions, as noted by ChaimMoskowitz.

I cant find anything explicit right now, but according to this article (http://www.creditcards.com/credit-card-news/fincen-study-prepaid-gift-card-suspicious-activity-report-required-1282.php) It would imply that gift cards are specifically mentioned to be a suspicious purchase.
I am pretty sure that the stores are filing CTR's on GC purchased with CC also. (even if they may be technically wrong...)

I'm confused. I thought we were talking about MIL? Now you're mentioning CTR.

We're talking about whether S&S has a requirement to take down info for purchases of GC with CC, correct?

Well, we've established that they're not required to file a MIL. And, for all purchases less than $10K, no CTR is required either.

As far as an SAR, that cannot be warranted for every single transaction over X amount. X amount is not per se "suspicious."

Bottom line here is that the "the form" may be internally required by management, but it isn't legally required by Congress.

Sorry for being confusing.
The bottom line is that that the markets are taking down personal info for people purchasing thousands of dollars worth of gift cards with CC'ds.

I am asserting that they are taking down this info to file Suspicious activity reports. (SAR's) My uneducated guess is that these types of transactions are inherently suspicious. The fact that cash was not used, or that a GC is purchased do not make it less suspicious. They are mandated to file SARs specifically when GC's are involved and specifically when CC fraud is suspected.
They can also voluntarily electronically file a SAR report just to cover their bases even if not strictly required.

It is reckless to assume that they are collecting the info necessary for a SAR only for their internal use.

They could, but they don't. The form is pages long and takes awhile to fill out.

They are only collecting SOME of the info for an SAR. This is about as reckless as not wearing a seatbelt on an airplane.

I've been buying AT LEAST 2 at a time and they never took out any book to write anything down. They usually ask to see license to compare with cc. In fact, on Monday, I left my license at home and manager on duty who does not know me just compared it to my SS card.

My problem is at gas station. The guy in the afternoon knows how to do the gas points. But I wasn't able to go in the afternoon . There is this one guy on at 6PM who does not know how to do it. (I guess not that many people near me do gas rewards and I live in highly populated Jewish area!) and he argues and says you got 10 cents off! I laugh cuz I should have $10 off and 10 cents is for using cash. So he tells me he is off duty 6AM next day. I come at 6:30am And he's still there! I have a flight to catch but want to fill up cars for my kids to use. (Yes, I'm an older DDFer)

At pump? If I pay w CC then I pay cc price. W cash I pay 10 cents less. But with so many gas points that will expire in 30 days, I guess it's not so awful to pay $3.50 more in order to save 2.20/ gal. Next time I'll have to experiment when I'm not rushed.

At pump? If I pay w CC then I pay cc price. W cash I pay 10 cents less. But with so many gas points that will expire in 30 days, I guess it's not so awful to pay $3.50 more in order to save 2.20/ gal. Next time I'll have to experiment when I'm not rushed.
You are still saving $73.50 if that is what you do!  If you want that extra $3.50 also, then pay with a Shell CC at pump.

Or use a shell gift card that you buy at staples for %5 off with your ink card

Or what I did . I got shell gift cards at the recent home depot and Lowes amex promos for %20 off and I pay the cash price at the pump.

Here, I did the math for you. Assuming the following particulars, you still come out ahead using your credit card, regardless of how many gallons you purchase at once:

Of course using gift cards purchased in the right places with the right credit cards is even better, but what I am pointing out is that in most cases you are better off using even a lousy credit card rather than using cash. If my assumptions are correct, you should bypass the clueless attendant and do it yourself at the pump.

I now have several Shell GCs with under a dollar left on them. If I go to a self-serve station, can I use multiple cards to pay for one fill? Will Shell gift card CS combine them for me?

I will try the first tonight and I've already sent an email for the second - just wondering if anyone has had any experience with this.

Post by: David R on July 02, 2014, 01:22:44 PM
To earn 2200 points (assuming no bonus points) I would need 5x 500 GC = fees of 30.
...
Obviously the math changes when there is 5x rewards...
That's not a good assumption. Normally there are no gas rewards at all for buying gift cards, so buying five $500 gift cards would earn you zero gas rewards points. With the current promotion, you get 4 points per dollar.

No - that's for sure wrong. I've paid with multiple cards before in NJ, the attendant just has to be willing to do it for you.

I may just do that - fill up in NJ, find out the final amount owed, and then hand the guy a handful of cards - possibly plus cash. Even if I overpay by a few cents, I'll have effectively used the several dollars stuck on low-balance cards.

He swipes my card. I pay inside as I live in NY and it's self serve. I've asked the afternoon guy to teach night guy.. He's probably too stubborn to learn! I also tried a different gas station and even though they had S&S signs up, they were clueless on how to do it. I had them call manager but he said they don't have the correct machine.
I have an old S&S card. Do your new ones have a magnetic strip or bar code? Mine is a bar code.
This happened to me once, to a new guy on the overnight shift. He didn't hire how to process the s&s card, so I asked him to show me his computer screen. I noticed an option that something similar to "reward card" near the middle of  the bottom of the screen. He tapped on that, & selected the s&s option, then scanned my card & it worked.

He doesn't  have his own points.  He's asking for someone to sell him points at a discount of $1.20 per gallon.

And besides,  it's not 50% off.  It doesn't work with percent. It's a set amount off.

I did buy 2 that had back tab ripped off. The card number is actually different than the barcode. I reasoned that even if someone wanted to steal the number  the CC# was not tampered with. When I got to my car I called to verify that the funds were on card. I then cashed it out. My first choice would be to not by cards with a ripped backing but it worked for me.

Finally loaded up with $2500 in a Westchester Stop and Shop on my way to queens. It took like 20 minutes beacuse they needed to authorize the transaction by calling Chase and the manager. Anyway, it all worked out and now I have 10K Gas rewards to give out to family members and hit a CC thresh-hold in the process.

Well, they can claim that they haven't received plastic card yet, and are still using the temporary print out. This would constitute lying, but would do the trick.

When did you make your last  transaction in Stop and Shop? Sometimes it takes awhile for the points to post. Maybe you filled up when you only had 1200?

1) You can type card number on your cell phone in an app like key ring- then show the attendant- has real look with real bar-code
2) not sure why only $1.20 got taken off when you had 2000 points. where any of the points accumulated that day?
3) I believe you can only fill up once, up to 35 gallons, with the discount per day? per 24 hour period? anyone confirm this?
4) In 2-3 fill ups last month, my credit cards have been limiting me to certain dollar amounts. I am not sure if this is done on purpose by the gas attendants as I have been filling up at the same stations with same credit cars for 3-4 months  I now use cash to get the full 35 gallon amount.
5) As for points, keep records of your point total before and after your fill ups. Check points daily or every day as there are some attendants "stealing" points

By the way, there is a Stop and Shop app that makes it easy to keep track of your gas rewards. Its under My Stop and Shop and it also tells you how many points you have and when it expires.

What do they get from stealing your points?
I saw the story upthread, and that gas attendant stole points within 5 minutes out filling up.. what do they care if the next customer gets a discount?

Should have asked for a rain check on the promo.

If you do this with a circular showing the deal (not this week's - it's not in there - last week's) they will almost certainly give it to you if there aren't any Visa cards in the store. Possibly even if there are no more $500s, if you are slick. It's a funny kind of rain check, since the price is not what you want a rain check on, but it is definitely worth a try if you are getting nervous you won't restock your points before 7/10.

Now, that said, getting your points when you use the rain check, when they don't automatically ring up on purchase, may be more difficult. It will involve the CS desk person adding them manually, and given the amounts, the store manager will almost certainly need to come out and give permission, but it can be done.

I had a similar situation a long time ago when I bought 4x $500 and remembered about scanning my S&S card just as I was walking away, having paid already. That day, the store employees were rock stars for me and I wrote a long complimentary email about them to corporate, which I heard later got them some kind of presentation and a small bonus.

But when I try to register my card on the Stop and Shop website I get the following error "Service currently unavailable. We currently can not update your account. Please try again later."

I'm guessing this is normal because someone has to manually input the info from the sheet I filled out into the computer, but how long should it take?
Secondly, can I use the card meanwhile to redeem the gas rewards?

If the gas rewards are on the card, and the card is active, I don't foresee you having any problem. Check the price as your filling up, and you will be able to decipher quickly if I am correct.

Why is it so ominous and why does it worry you? It's not even in a computer--it's written in a notebook with pen. Nothing to worry about

Sure.  If phone CS can't verify points, then just go to manager with the receipt and they can manually adjust your account.

Yes.
I go straight to customer service because the cashier will call the manager anyway for approval.
 I see no problem with that. And as I said before. In my experience. Some stores will ask for ID and write down some info in there book and some will just want to verify that the name on the card matches the ID and some won't ask at all for ID. To avoid all that just buy 1 $500 card at a time .

Your post is a bit unclear, but if I understand you correctly, the answer is the following. After buying GC's and obtain more points, it sometimes takes a few hours for the points to post on your account and online. So just wait for the points to post before you go to the gas station.

I believe he was asking something else, people have a ton of available points but sometimes Shell only processes $.10 off because they're "offline" he wanted to know if there's a way to have Shell be "online" to receive the full discount.

Same happened to me on Friday. I called S&S and Shell corporate. Nothing to be done - they each said it was the other's problem and when it shows 10 cents that is the default for being offline. As a courtesy, S&S extended my entire points balance. :D
Went back today and worked fine.

When there's no VGC promo going on, do they give 1 S&S PPD or nothing, the reason I'm asking is because, I bought VGC last week and I didn't get the points automatically, same happened to me yesterday. I did go to customer service and asked for it and they gave it to me.

For some reason the last 2 - 3 times I filled up at shell, it was exactly $15 - no change. Anyone know how this is? It can't be that there's EXACTLY the same amount left in my tank each time.

To be fair this has always (IIRC) been at the same shell. Route 17S in Ridgewood.

Maybe next time I'll go somewhere else... to see what happens.

I get off the 17 pretty soon after that shell - onto GSP. There's a shell on route 3 in passaic or clifton that I've been at. Don't remember the price though, but it is out of my way so it may not be worth it.

Filled up 35 gallons worth, and the system wouldn't take off 2.20 even though I have over 13K in gas points (it only took 3.50). I ended up cancelling the savings of 3.50, and sent a letter to Stop and Shop. I will follow up with a call tomorrow.

Has anyone had this experience? Will emailing or calling them help? TIA

FYI: this incident took place on Rt 59 in Monsey; the shell in Mahwah was closed already.

Yes. Whenever s&s system is down,  it deducts 10 cents per gallon.

You shouldnve noticed that right in the beginning.

The way it works at the shell I was it is as follows. The gas attendant told me that gas rewards only works inside, so he told me to fill up and then pay.

U think there is any chance they will still honor the deduction?

So the discount you received was only $0.10 a gallon... as stated earlier this happens when the system is down.

Also it makes no sense that it could only be done inside....

Another question you aren't able to cancel after you pump....

Only thing they might do is extend your current point balance so you could use them for a longer period of time.

I always thought that it was some sort of error when the system was offline. The discount will apply even if the gas station is closed (you just won't be able to pump gas), so from what I understand it has nothing to do with that. Last night I also got the 10¢ discount at Shell Monsey, but I've gotten the full $2.20 at that hour plenty of times.

Agreed. No reason to HUCA unless they don't offer you anything.

They gave me 500 points as goodwill, and reset the expiration date of 2200 points. Not bad

So, the Stop and Shop Circular advertisement showed up in the mail today, and I got VERY excited, because I saw "5x Gas Points". And then I saw gift cards.  But, my enthusiasm completely deflated when I saw the gift cards were for the The Gap (and affiliates).  Not that I have anything against The Gap, but I really don't need $500 (or, more optimistically, $2000 or $4000) worth of Gap gift cards...unless someone knows of a way that they can be liquidated.  Anyone? ???

Well I know a gas station where the price for paying by credit card is about a dollar more than the cash price. I suppose if he's restricted to that gas station, he would be hard pressed to find any credit card that would make it worth it to pay that much extra for the CC points earned. Somehow, I suspect this has nothing to do with his rationale.

Anybody have any experience or info on price chopper with sunoco gas program ? It looks similar to this progran for every $100 spent you save $0.10 per gallon up to 20 gallons per fill up. The question is. Do they give points on gift cards and if they have bonus point categories. The closest price chopper to me is about 13 miles in a direction I never go.

Funny thing... I went to stop and shop last wk to buy some visa GCs, expecting to get gas rewards points. I had never bough GCs at s&s before when they weren't having a promotion, and when I got my receipt I saw that no points were earned for the purchase. So I then read the t&c and learned that you generally earn zero points for gift card purchases, and only earn points when there's a promotion. (Who knew?) This bothered me a little, since the circular is not clear at all about this point. So I called up S&S and told them their circular should clearly state that no points are earned for GCs unless there is a promotion, and they transferred me 3 times to their complaint dept, supervisor etc. I explained to the supervisor that the circular says you earn "5x" points during promotion period, which implies that you earn 1 point at other times, since 5 x 1 = 5, but 5 x 0 = 0. She thanked me for pointing that had out, asked me to fax in my receipt, and then gave me the points that I would have earned. We'll see if they actually change the language in their circular....

If they only meant to include the pictured cards, why would they have to list exclusions? It would be understood that any cards not pictured are excluded.
All cards are "loadable" because they are worth nothing while hanging on the rack and value is loaded to them when they are purchased. The cards that can be depleted and then value can be added to the same card again are "reloadable". Visa gift cards are generally not reloadable; PayPower, NetSpend, PayPal and MyVanilla cards are.

And where are you gonna store the cans? I don't think it's very safe to have a bunch of 5 gallon gas cans hanging out... even in the garage...

Anyone know if you get gas points on GCs NOT during a promo period?

I went to try it out, the points did not show up on the receipt. when I asked them why it didn't show up, they added the points manually.

It looks like from this post and from another one i saw earlier where points were posted manually not during a promo period, it might be worth it to try at least once. If I don't get the points I'm still buying MR for .59 CPP. Not too bad.

Also, I also tried to split hairs about the way the current ad looked, and went for the points with Visa GCs. Alas, they did not post automatically, and I didn't make a nuisance of myself to try to post them manually.

If you think someone couldn't potentially lose their job for posting 2500 gas points manually without proper authorization, you're wrong.

And even if it was, the question "Does BestBuy allows GCs to be bought with GCs?" should precede it.

if you folks continue to go to CS desk to get 1x points, they will deny you the buying of VGC with a CC. Then ad specifically shows the cards that are part of the promo this week. Whew!!Why aggravate them?. Just wait for the promo or buy w/o points for 5x on CC. I don't go nuts over this. You make it bad for others.. please...Thank G-- I don't live in metro NY, but have plenty of S&S that have just reloaded their CC displays with more metabank cards, after being out for weeks.

I picked up a Visa GC at SnS earlier this week (Sunday). I asked the cashier if it would credit the 5x gas points. She said she didn't know and suggested I ask customer service before I buy. The CSA hadn't previously seen the ad, pulled it out, read it, and had the same reaction most of us had ("this really isn't clear...they don't tell you which are and which are not included). She said go ahead and buy it and if it doesn't credit the gas points, she will ask manager if ok to manually credit, which is what subsequently happened.   Then I asked if amazon GC would be included.  She said she didn't know, but it would make sense it might be, since it is more like the pictured cards and wouldn't seem to be explicitly excluded.  (I asked if they got any additional info from corporate office and she said, are you kidding? They don't tell us anything. ).  So, I went ahead and bought a $500 amazon GC, which also did not give points.   I asked if she could manually credit. She then called her manager again, who was less happy about this, and said they couldn't manually add any more points, but said they would do it this one time for me.  I was very grateful, respectful, and the interaction ended positively.

I think we should all agree not to do this from now on. 1x gas points are nice, but prob not worth s&s cracking down on gc purchases.

Yes, I agree. The first $500 Visa GC was innocent, and they were nice enough to grant me the 5x. I should have walked away, or if I was going to try the Amazon card, shouldn't have gone for $500.  Greed got the better of me.

I've never requested points if it wasn't automatically put on....
Depended on their stock if they had I would buy $4500 once or twice a week. (for some reason they were convinced the the total couldn't be over 5k)

@bznt gave you a few viable ideas.  In addition, if you want to HUCA it yourself in person, I'd ask if you could only buy 3 cards, not the 9 that you usually do.  If they agree to only that, then you may be able to eventually get it up to 3-4 cards per visit, but I wouldn't go beyond that because of their "paperwork".

don't know which S&S you folks are talking about.. My upstate (and CT stores also) stores have a new policy and new register system. Anything over 1K requires manager override. I just don't make a pig of myself. I buy 1 with TDBank 5% card and right after that 1 with BC card at same register.. NO  problem. I go to a few cashiers when they are busy. I'm happy buying 4 or 6 cards at a time. Not like the rest of you, who will get corporate  S&S to stop taking CC for VGC!! Especially asking CS for gas points when the offer shows the cards included in 5%!!!

They have the buy 6 get extra 400 points for example

So make your calculations.. sometimes if you're gonna fill up anyway it's worth buying those items

Why give the $ to the gas station if you can get some free or nearly free food/household items out of it....

Oh yea and you can always return them if u don't need them...

Shell MAY  be changing the amount of gas you can pump with their gas rewards. Word is that some gas pumps are stating there is a change to 20 gallon max (though the pump is not enforcing yet)!  The website still states 35 gallon and customer service said 35 gallons and they know of no change, however that means nothing –this might be coming…

It's a 20 gallon max for the FRN rewards. Are you perhaps confusing the two (hopefully)?

If your if your referring to the 23 gallon limit when filling up at the pump, its nothing new. you need to go inside to get the full 35 gallon.

Whew! The change from 35 to 20 was just a rumor.
It appears that the signs were inadvertently posted from their sister chain Giant Food in PA – separate chain, different program but they share a corp mktg team and printing vendors.  Looks like signs were sent out to the wrong gas stations.

This weeks deal is 40x $2 iced teas for $2 off per gallon.  This week they are 64 oz bottles.  Bigger bottles, bigger price,  bigger storage, bigger headache  (unless you need lottttsss of ice tea.

I've been exercising self control. I know I can't use more than 4-5 fillups (x2) per month.

Problem with sharing it is friends and family will never manage to use more than 17-18 gal on a fillup, unless you're at the pump coordinating them.

I was thinking of going in Thursday (last day of the sale in my town) for another couple cards, to extend my month. I'm not optimistic there will be any left, though.

BTW, having done this deal at both Giant PA and Giant MD, I think I like the Giant PA deal better. You only get 25 gallons, but you can make it entirely free; instead of 35 gallons at $2.20 off (which at least is getting closer to free now that gas is below $3.00). The 35 gallon limit encourages me to "caravan" my family's cars to the station at the same time, which is a PITA. And it seems more fun in PA when the pump price is "zero." I also like how you get more time (until the end of the next month) to use the points.

I don't like using a gas can to refill my tank. I'm getting better at it, but it still seems like I always spill a little (I have an old can). It just doesn't seem like a terribly good idea.
Dan's deals, huh? Maybe that announcement generated a LOT of new interest in this deal, as I went to three Giants in Chesco, Pa., and they had zero VGCs, except a few $25 denoms ... the word is out! Burning up gas driving to find points for gas!

I would suggest you obliterate the humanly readable number and just leave the magnetic strip and/or barcode.
Regardless of what the gas station's equipment displays, the unscrupulous attendant can always have a barcode or magnetic stripe reader, so keep an eye on your card.

Would someone fill me in here, I'm new to maximizing gas reward points. I live in PA and see on the bottom of me receipt there's a 25 gal max. Someone even commented on that limit earlier. When I look at the Terms and Conditions on Giants website it says the max is 35 gal. Doesn't the company have to abide my their terms? I got excited and bought a bunch of gas cans which are appear to now be useless.

I am not sure about the giant program. But the stop and shop and shell gas program its 35 limit per fill up. I don't know which vehicle you have. But most passenger vehicles take about 18 gallons. So even if you can only get 25 gallons you still can salvage 5 gallons in your tanks

on the contrary, wait till you have no gas points left, and then use ur gc just for small fill ups until u finish each of them out.
Smart. Question is if it ends up worth it, because shell gas is more expensive than, say, delta.

if he alresady paid for the card its def worth it, the only other option is selling for a discount online which will prob be more significant than the diff between delta and shell

Of course once you have the GC it's worth using it. Question is if you gain or lose by buying shell GCs to pay cash price, when you have to buy more expensive gas to wipe out the balances.
Further study/calculations required.

This is a forum. Whoever found their way here , is already way more adnvanced than the noooobs who rread the main site.

Not everything here is meant to be shared.

We went through this already regarding this specific deal. Check earlier on in this thread.

There were many many people upset that it was posted on main site.

People stopped complaining bec they got no where last time they complained. Instead, they stopped sharing deals here.
And anyone who is advanced should be able to find out if there is a gas promo going on without reading it here. Dan takes the deal directly from the forum. I don't see any benefit of posting it here. And even if we presume there is a benefit, we should all know by now that any gas promo posted here will definitely make it shortly to ddms.

It will only take off the gas the number of points which you have if it is less than 2200 points.  If you only have 700 points on your card, it will take off only 0.70 per gallon.  Your answer:  It will take off $2.10 per gallon.

You were thinking in points.  Think in dollars. They can't deduct $2.20 per gallon if the gallon is only $2.00.  The software has to stop deducting points when it reaches the price of the gallon.

5X on Xbox gift cards next week.
12/26-1/1
Title: Re: Gift Card and gas Promo at Stop & Shop or Giant
Post by: zow on January 22, 2015, 02:10:30 PM
next week, beginning 1/23, Stop and Shop has a number of grocery and related items on sale that provide gas points, such that the items would effectively be free.
For example: Hefty Foam Plates 3 packs for $5. Buy six packs of plates ($10) and one Hungry Jack Pancake Mix ($2), and that combined purchase of 7 items for $12 saves you $0.40 on a gallon of gas.  If you can fill 35 gallons, you save $14 on gas.  So you get those 7 grocery items for minus $2.  It's not as great as gift cards, but we take what we can get.

They also have big Hershey Bars, 2 for $5.  Buy 6 bars ($15) plus a pancake mix ($2). That's $17, so with $14 saved on gas, you pay $3 and can make awesome chocolate chip pancakes.

One more example:
Angel Soft Bathroom Tissue (my kids say it's much better than Costco...spoiled brats): $5.49 for various sizes. Buy 4 packs, that's $22. For that purchase, you get $0.50 off a gallon, so for a 35-gallon fill-up, you save $17.50, making the cost of the 4 packs of toilet paper $4.50, or about $1.10 each.

Title: Re: Gift Card and gas Promo at Stop & Shop or Giant
Post by: HDS on March 17, 2015, 01:43:14 PM
So interesting.

My local S&S posted their own sign in December that GCs were cash or Debit only (all, indiscriminate - not just VGCs or whatever).

Obviously, this was the store making up their own rules, so I went to customer service and they said it was just for the holidays. I had plenty of other S&S stores where there was no such sign, so I ignored it. Recently though, the sign was still up so I went to CS again and asked who I could ask about it. They suggested that I write to corporate, mentioning this store specifically and explaining my concern. My note would be discussed between corporate and the store manager.

Normally, at this point, I'd have given it up as a lost cause, but I actually did write to corporate about it. I praised the specific store for its cleanliness (true) and general employee efficiency and competence (definitely true) and then proceeded to outline my issue, careful to be articulate and respectful: It seemed that the store put up their own sign restricting GC sales from credit cards... I know that other Stop & Shops allow this... I certainly support ID verification protocols and limits to protect both the store and consumers....

Anyway, I was surprised to get back a note within a week or so saying that the corporate policy was that credit cards could certainly be used to purchase GCs and that the sign would be taken down. On my very next visit to the store, the sign was down, and the employees allowed purchases with CCs without a problem at all.

It would be interesting if they now changed the company policy. I guess we'll see.

@tz The store closest to me, let's leave it at that.

@MarkS and Malachi

I generally agree with you, except when it comes to employees denying the purchase of products their stores are selling by allowable means. No store stocks things in the store that they don't want to sell, just like no store would accept credit cards if it was truly a bad deal for them.

In terms of putting it on their radar, trust me, I didn't put this on their radar. This is not a little mom & pop store where they wake up and say "oh, hmm, interesting idea."

It's either the case that these products are a problem for them in some way, likely because of out and out fraud, or even just the time and energy of fraud research, and it was only a matter of time before they changed the corporate policy, or these things are not a problem for them (or not enough of a problem to make a change that will undoubtedly reduce their dollars sold) and this will blow over next week without a change.

But, if the change happens, and you need someone to blame, and it makes you feel better to blame me, by all means. I can take it. :)

Let's assume you are right. Note my emphasis.

And yet stores continue to offer the cards for sale via CC.

Maybe because most people don't put $500 on the cards. Maybe because it is part of a big display of other kinds of GCs that they make money on. Maybe there are slotting fees and other placement incentives that giftcardmall and others pay outside of the retail sale itself to get the stores to display their cards. Maybe people coming into the store buy other stuff.

Whatever the calculation, either you have to admit that overall the stores make money with these products, or you have to believe that all the corporate MBAs that work in these companies are idiots.

@ChaimMoskowitz

Unlikely, because it amounts to the same thing, like Freddie said. If they were truly unaware, they wouldn't be doing their jobs. They have all the sales data, all the people scanning their store-cards for gas rewards, etc. etc.

S&S makes official signs for gift cards: No more than $5,000 may be purchased per person per day, anything more than $2,000 needs to be done at the CS counter. They have policies and training of employees about ID, books where they record information about people who purchase a lot at once, etc. etc. They are NOT not thinking about this.

It is far more likely that they are aware of everything, and it is all still worthwhile at any particular moment to continue.

Right - because loss leaders are a thing. They aren't a "mistake" or a secret.

They have a purpose, which is to actually make more money for the store than the store would make without loss leaders. EVERYTHING stores do is to make money, down to where they place the milk and eggs (in the back).

All we're saying is that this logic applies to GCs as well - whatever they are, however you look at them, they MUST be making money for the store in the big picture, otherwise something else would be taking up their space.

I bought fruit juice instead (while Costco raised the price on Kedem grape juice before Passover, S&S put it on sale). I was going to suggest we post which stores have $20-$500 cards in stock, but I don't want to be attacked, so I offered a safer suggestion.

Same experience. I was told it has to do with the pumps computer. Something like it's not programmed to pump gas without billing as it pumps,  so it needs some minimum,  and it differs with pumps how much it needs to be so u might find different minimums by different locations

Had an interesting experience yesterday.

The cash price was $2.19 and credit was $2.29. The guy put in my S&S number and the pump would not let him use regular, rather it forced him to put plus in my car. So instead of paying $0.09 a gallon, i paid the credit plus price of $0.29.

Not the end of the world, but odd and a bit annoying.

  • A gift card was used with a remaining balance of only $11.35.
  • With that many gallons, you probably were filling more than one vehicle. The gas station attendant wanted to enforce the rule and therefore stopped the transaction when he saw you pumping the second vehicle.

I know you're not dumb; I'm just presenting other technically feasible scenarios.
I was using a credit card.

when I started pumping it said something about max 28 gallons. It stopped during the third vehicle

and it didn't cut off suddenly, it slowed down then shut down. similar to when you put $20 and as it gets close it slows down

Up to now I had figured between my family and friends I could scrounge up someone who'd be willing to take some free gas. Alas, that day has passed.

I did think of a can while I was there but at that point I had the pump going so I couldn't run in and grab one from the "friendly" night manager. I will be getting one for next time though.
