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.

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.
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.

Thank you. No, I did not know this. Can you link to the wiki so I can read it? Is it only MC or all GC's? It's not like I did this at a machine...I did it at at a teller.

BTW, here is the link where Dan says to do this. http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/40387

How do you know about BB? When you start something new make sure to read up on it.

Testy.... Okay, here is the wiki - http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=21024.0 tell me where it says anything about getting shut down for using MC at a Walmart cashier. The only thing it says it about getting shut down is when trying to load it to BB online which I was quite clearly not talking about. If you know of something else, please share.

There are reports of loading BB with a MC GC at WM = shut down? I know doing it online is not good but at WM?

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
