Stop & Shop/Giant/Martin’s, 3X Fuel Points on Visa Gift Cards (Starts 10/11)

From 10/11/2019 to 10/17/2019 you can earn 3X points when you purchase any Visa gift cards at Stop & Shop (or Giant and Martin’s). You have to present your store card when purchasing the gift cards and also when redeeming your points at the gas station. These Visa gift card fuel points deals are a good way to get discounts on gas, especially if you have a card that earns extra points on supermarkets.

You don’t normally earn fuel points on these gift card purchases, so being able to get 3X is a huge deal. You should purchase $500 denominations to maximize the credit card rewards and the fuel points, since you’re paying the activation fee.

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. Also 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.

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)

How To Liquidate Gift Cards

Visa gift cards can be liquidated by buying money orders at Walmart or at various grocery stores and other locations. The PIN is already set as the last 4 digits of the card number. The can also be used for bill pay at Walmart and Kmart. If everything else fails, you can always use them everywhere Visa is accepted.

Guru’s Wrap-Up

This Visa gift card fuel points offer is great for people who drive since it gets you very cheap gas. It can also net you a small profit through credit card rewards. You keep in mind that it starts Friday, October 11th. You can make this deal even better if you use a credit card that earns most points at supermarkets and grocery stores to get as much as 6% back. There’s currently a fuel deal going on this week at these supermarkets. You can earn 2X fuel points on Mastercard gift cards and 10x on Happy gift cards.

  1. Mikki, go back to my original post here. I tried to buy money orders at both S&S and Walmart last night using my MC GCs from last weeks promo but the transaction was aborted by the POS machine. I was however able to buy this weeks Visa GCs using last weeks MC GCs. Then the Visa GCs did work tonight to buy MOs.

  2. Had a problem tonight trying to buy a money order using my Mastercard gift card from this current week’s promotion. Last Friday I had no issue. Tonight my two MC GCs were denied by the POS card machine at both Stop & Shop and Walmart. Cards were registered to me and pin activated to my personal code.

    • I’ve bought a few, but have yet to use them. At Stop&Shop you were using them for regular purchases? And I actually just heard today about some issues with MOs at some WM about not accepting GCs.

      • Attempted to purchase a money order at Stop & Shop using a Master Card GC that I had purchased from S&S the night before. The POS terminal aborted the transaction two times. I later tried using the same MC GCs at Walmart and had the same problem.

        Today I used the MC GCs to purchase two Visa GCs in separate transactions. I was successful. My next was to go to a different S&S and I was successful in purchasing money orders using the Visa GCs.
