Starting today, 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. The promotion is valid until 5/23.
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.

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 can make this deal even better if you use your Chase Freedom this quarter or a credit card that earns most points at supermarkets and grocery stores to get as much as 6% back. Better to go today or in the following weeks, before they run out of stock.
