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.

So why are they often so tense about people buying in bunches?
Maybe they are worried about their exposure to fraud. If you're using a stolen credit card to pay, they stand to lose more if you buy more. (Okay, I really don't know who would eat the loss if that happened.) I bought $1000 worth and they recorded my info in their little black book.

Well basically yes, but each gift card is worth x3 points so buying 1k of gift cards will already get you past the $2.20 off per gallon. Whatever you don't use will count toward the next fill up. In the above scenario you would buy 1k in gift cards and get $2.20 off your first fill-up. You would still have 80 cents left off the next one.
FTFY

So I just went to giant and tried to buy the variable gift cards. I was told I can only purchase those with cash. Is this a new rule? Otherwise how would buying $100 gift cards with a 5.95 purchase fee be a good deal?
Be glad you did not succeed on Friday; the deal at Giant is 6/7-6/13.

Go to a different store. Just bought at giant this morning. But don't bother with old court. I got the only one this morning <img src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/tapatalk-emoji/emoji13.png" />
Uh oh, did you get gas points for your purchase on Friday?

So some giants do have $500 cards? I was at catonsville
Yes, I saw them in Bethlehem, PA.

Shame. I'll be out of gas by then...
Yup same here, well maybe they will extend the points a bit at least...
Or maybe they will extend the gas a bit. You know, like a little Chanukah miracle.

I don't have the full number to whoever's card she added the points to. I can just see that she messed up on one of the numbers in the last 4 digits.
Well if that's the only messed up digit, you know the first digits from your own S&S card. Not that I am advocating bznt's method.

Does anyone have a screenshot/pic of the giant circular with the offer?
Attached.

Did you see the attachment to my previous post? Did you see the points added to your Giant receipt for your purchase on Friday? I was at Giant on Friday and they had $20-$500 cards in stock but I did not buy because it appeared that the deal did not start yet.

If you present your S&S card when you purchase at Giant, do you get gas points? Self checkout at Giant gave an error when I scanned my S&S card, so I assume not, unless there was just a temporary outage.
