Free Fuel Points at Stop&Shop/Giant with New Mastercard Gift Card Deal
Stop & Shop and Giant have a new Mastercard gift cards deal starting today that can get you fuel savings. Let’s take a look.
Earn 2x Gas Rewards Points when you purchase any Mastercard Gift Cards with your Stop & Shop or Giant card.
- Offer valid 6/23/17 to 6/29/17
- Must use your Stop&Shop/Giant card
- Offer valid only on Mastercard gift card purchases
Gift card purchases don’t normally earn fuel points, but through this promotion, you get 2x. Make sure to use the right credit card to maximize your rewards. Amex Blue Cash Preferred will give you 6% at grocery stores and you can also get 5% with Amex Old Blue Cash or Chase Freedom (Q2 5% bonus category).
You should buy $500 gift cards to maximize you card rewards and fuel points.
These gas rewards used to be better, but these deals could still get you cheap gas. Every 100 points are worth $0.10 off per gallon on your fill up of up to 20 gallons. If you buy a $500 Visa gift card and you will receive 1000 points. That would be $1.00 off per gallon. Multiply that by how many gallons you can pump in one fill up, to calculate your profits. The limit is 20 gallons.
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 in some areas, which is $1.50 off per gallon. Gas Rewards points are valid for 30 days from the day they are earned. Points can be reedemed at Stop & Shop gas stations and at participating Shell locations.
This is a good deal for those who drive since it gets you very cheap gas on top of a small profit through credit card rewards. Previously some locations didn’t allow gift card purchases with credit cards but it now explicitly states in the ad that they accept credit cards for the purchase of Visa, Mastercard and American Express gift cards.
