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.

For better value, link Fuel Rewards to your Stop & Shop card.

Bring some Gas canisters. Got an extra 13 gallon with 'em and just filled up a car with them this morning.

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.

IMO too much pain in the neck. I can enjoy what I'm getting now without feeling like I'm missing out because there's more out there...

But make sure to hide the numbers when handing the card to an attendant at that gas station (see upthread).

Thats how it is at some stations.

Others aren't set up that way.

Okay.  It's still possible that this was the issue.  Maybe his cc only authorizes $50

Does Mahwah allow two cars to fill up?

Don't know. I was in Jersey doing some shopping, so I stopped at the Shell there, but next time I will go the one in Mahwah.

I see that not all shell station accept s&s rewards apparently they need to be within a certain footprint of a local store.
Anyway, anybody know which participating shell is northernmost and right off the nys thruway?
I'm headed to Montreal and wanna fillup along the way. So far that farthest I found is new paltz ny. Anybody have a better option?

Just checked 2 s&s locations but couldn't find visa GC. If anyone knows any locations in nj that have pls let me know. Thanks.
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Will they at least sell a single $500 card and accept payment via credit card? Do they have them in stock?
