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). Any discount you have available from the Fuel Rewards program is in addition to the Stop & Shop discount. For example, if you have 2000 Stop & Shop points and a $0.35 discount from Fuel Rewards, you can purchase gas for $1.85 off per gallon (the maximum $1.50 discount from Stop & Shop plus the Fuel Rewards discount).

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.

Usually Stop and Shop and Giant have the same gas point/gift card ads.  When you posted the Giant's ad I took a second look at the Stop and Shop preview ad for 5/28 - 6/3/21 online.  Sure enough, in small print under the Happy Card gift cards, the dates posted were 4/23/21 - 4/29/21!               I checked a back copy of the S&S ads from those dates and indeed it showed the Happy Card gift cards.

Bottom line, always check the fine print. A blogger posted the April Stop & Shop flyer under the 5/28 ad preview.
My bad for not checking. Yes, 3x MCGC for S&S for this Friday.   :)

Are there still promos for Visa GCs? When is the last time they've had one?
Thanks.

I'm aware of that. My question is whether they still do VGCs. :)

I recall having issues with MC, fraud etc. I don't remember if it was these cards or those from Staples. Anyone know if these MCs have that problem?

So sorry I just popped into this thread and saw your question.  At least you will have the answer for next round. These MCGCs are from MetaBank, the same bank as the VISA GCs.  The previous, problematic ones were from USBank so AFAIK S&S and Staples MC and Visa GCs are ok now.  I have had problems with Staples own store GCs, though.

They definitely still do VGC's. Normally it alternates back and forth between MCGC and VGC

I noticed that they recently (?) changed their points program. Anything written up about that here? Or anywhere?

2 fold.
1) yes visa is still available
2) to let the people who don’t know that the coming week’s promo is 3 X Visa.
