From 4/06/2018 to 4/12/2018 you can earn 3x fuel points when you purchase any Visa gift cards at Stop & Shop (or Giant and Martin’s). You have to present your Stop & Shop card when purchasing the gift cards. This a well timed offer that can be stacked with a $15 savings coupon that I already covered here (Update: Expired, stacking no longer possible).
Using Fuel Points
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 at some locations, which is $1.50 off per gallon. Some places you can use even more.
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.

This is a good deal for people who drive since it get’s you very cheap gas and a small profit through credit card rewards. It’s even better than usual now that it can be stacked with $15 in grocery savings. Make sure you use a credit card that earns most points at supermarkets and grocery stores to get as much as 6% back. This quarter you can also use a Discover it or Chase Freedom card to earn 5% at grocery stores.
