Stop & Shop/Giant/Martin’s, 3X Fuel Points on Visa Gift Cards
Today is the last day to earn 3X points on Visa gift card purchases at Stop & Shop, Giant and Martin’s supermarkets. 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, up to free gas.
Points can be reedemed at Giant Foods and 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.

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.
This Visa gift card fuel points offer is great for people who drive since it gets you very cheap gas, or even free gas in some areas. It can also net you a profit through credit card rewards. With a 5x card for example you can make about $18 for every Visa gift card you purchase.
Don’t forget to use a credit card that earns most points at supermarkets and grocery stores to get as much as 6% back. And now you have even more option, as many issuers have improved earning on groceries. Chase Freedom earns 5% this quarter. American Express has introduced many new limited time offers, and if you have the Chase Sapphire Reserve or Citi Prestige card, supermarket purchases count towards the travel credit. You can also redeem Chase Ultimate Rewards points for these purchases at 1.5 cents each.
