Stop & Shop has a promotion starting tomorrow that can earn you 10X fuel points on purchases of Staples, Domino’s and L.L.Bean gift cards. Staples gift cards are probably the best option and should net you some gas savings.
- Offer valid from 10/19 till 10/25
- Must present your store card when purchasing the gift cards
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, or 30 gallons in some states. 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.
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 1200 miles per month, so this offer should add up to some decent savings.
Read more here on how to use your points.
Gas Rewards Details
- 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)
This is a decent deal for people who drive. You can sell Staples gift cards for up to 87% of face value. If you buy a $100 Staples gift card for example, you lose $12 but you get 1,000 fuel points which could easily add up to about $17 in savings for a normal fill up but maybe even more if you can maximize it. Make sure you use a credit card that earns most points at supermarkets and grocery stores to get as much as 6% back. Also check out the current deal on Visa gift cards that ends today.
