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.

Was told today that there is a limit of 500 per day.  Any way to get around that?

I was at Stop and Shop and the guy at the customer service desk near monsey told me, "One guy has 46K points".

Which DDF'er is this?
I earned about 100K between this and the one right before this.

I was by S&S today and they refused to sell me more than 1x500 GC.  The employee at the CS desk (where they said I had  to buy the GC and couldn't buy it at a register) said that was the limit and then the manager walked by and also said that was the per day limit.  As a result, I was only able to buy 1x500 GC.

Then I supposed that is just the arbitrary limit at this particular location.  Will  go elsewhere from now on.  Thanks.

Problem was there was only one person at the CS desk and he said he was going to be there until closing.  There was no one else to try with.

For $500 a cashier should be able to do it. When buying more than one, a manager needs to override the transaction. Try $500 at a time.

Remember. The points expire 30 after they are earned.
If you need gift cards or you just want to " grind water" use Barclay's rewards boost to get X 6 points per dollar.

As posted above, the CS counter would not let me purchase more than 1x500.

Borrow or rent a tanker? The guy with 46K could probably use one of those to fit the 735 gallons he needs to buy to use up all those points.

Quick Question: I went to stop and shop because I needed 400 more points to reach 2200. 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?

THanks

Points usually post next day. SS will not adjust anything for you. Not sure what you want.

You should have checked your point balance before you went to fill up. Sometimes the points post the same day and sometimes a day after
