Stop&Shop and Giant is offering 4x gas points when you purchase any participating gift cards with your store card. The offer start today and goes on till December 15, 2016. See weekly ads for Stop&Shop, Giant.
This offer applies to participating third party merchant gift cards and won’t work for Stop&Shop/Giant, Amex, Visa or Mastercard gift cards. Looks like included merchants are as follows:
- Toyr R Us
- Darden Restaurants
4x fuel points is a nice offer just keep in mind that fuel points expire so there’s no need to load up on more points that you’ll be able to use.
These gas rewards have been devalued lately, but here’s how it works now. Every 100 points are worth $0.10 off per gallon on your fill up of up to 20 gallons. If you buy a $500 Visa gift card and you will receive 1000 points. That would be $1.00 off per gallon. Multiply that by how many gallons you can pump in one fill up, to calculate your profits. The limit is 20 gallons. The more you can pump in one transaction, the better the deal gets.
If you buy more than one gift card, you’ll obviously get more points but you can only redeem up to 1500 points per transaction, which is $1.50 off per gallon. Points can be reedemed at Stop & Shop gas stations and at participating Shell locations which can be found here. In New Jersey, savings apply after fueling at the posted price and will appear on the receipt. If you don’t have a Stop&Shop near you, the deal should be available at Grant as well.
Don’t buy too many cards if you don’t drive much and try to fill up with an empty tank to maximize your profits. I usually drive about 1300 miles per month, so this offer should add up to some nice savings.
Also use a credit cad that earns points at grocery stores when purchasing the gift cards. I’d use my Old Amex Blue Cash which will earn 5%, which already turns in a profit even before the gas savings. Amex Blue Cash Preferred is even better, it will earn you 6%.
- Total discount cannot exceed price per gallon
- The discount can only be used on one vehicle, limited to the tank’s capacity, not to exceed 20 gallons
- Earned points are available for redemption within 24 hours
- Gas Rewards points are valid for 30 days from the day they are earned; your date of purchase is Day 1
- Your available points will be redeemed in 100 point increments (worth 10 cents off per gallon)
