Giant/Martin’s, 3X Fuel Points on Visa Gift Cards
From 5/15/20 to 5/21/20 you can earn 3X points when you purchase any Visa gift cards at 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
For 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. In some places you can use even more, even up to free gas.
Points can be reedemed at gas stations at these supermarkets, or participating Shell locations which can be found here.
Don’t buy too many cards if you don’t drive much, as point expire in 30 days or at the end of the following month. Also try to fill up with an empty tank to maximize your profits. Read more here on how to use your points.

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. That’s not as easy to do nowadays with everyone staying home. But, if everything else fails, you can always use them everywhere Visa is accepted.
