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.

keep in mind that sometimes its not worth it if you're not redeeming enough points. the shell near my house is more expensive than the hess (sometimes by 10 cents) because of the cash/cc pricing. The rewards will reduce the price from the CC price (at least at my shell)

Maximum of $2.20 off per gallon -  up to 35 gallons.  (this is for nj.  In other states it may be different)

up to 35 gallons in one fill up. I take my wifes car and mine at the same time and i fill up some gas cans as well.
Also keep in mind that some CCs have a limit on how much you can spend at a gas station at one time so for example the last time I went I couldnt get 35 gallons because I reached the price limit before 35 gallons

I used to have that issue,  but my local shell just changed the system. Now it automatically generates the lower price  so cc iisn't a problem anymore.

NJ  people have a choice of using a CC for gas and getting less gallons or paying up to $2.20 less per gallon for 35 gallons if they pay in cash.
NY people don't have this issue.

In my s&s they don't have any visa or Mc cards left. All I see is visa travel money cards by paypower or something like that. Anyone know if this works?

here is the site https://www.paypower.com/.
It's the travel money card. Looks like you need to give some identifying information to get it. Would it work?

Better to find a different S & S with Visa or MC GCs. Not sure if Paypower is in the circular ad for 3x points.
