5X Fuel Points on Amex, Sears, and Nike Gift Card Purchases
Stop & Shop and Giant have a new promotion that can earn you fuel points on select gift cards purchases. Let’s take a look.
Earn 5x Gas Rewards Points when you purchase American Express, Nike, or Sears gift cards with your store card.
- Offer valid 6/2/17 to 6/8/17
- Must use your Stop&Shop/Giant card
Gift card purchases don’t normally earn fuel points, but through this promotion, you get 5x. 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 this quarter.
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 Amex gift card for example, you would receive 2,500 points.
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 so make sure you do your calculation and rack up just as many fuel points that you are able to use up.
Points can be redeemed at Stop & Shop gas stations and at participating Shell locations.
This is a great deal for people who drive a lot since it get’s you cheap gas, but Amex gift cards are not the easiest to deal with. We often see only 2X fuel points on Amex gift cards (and Visa and Mastercard), so this 5X is pretty rare.
Previously some locations didn’t allow gift card purchases with credit cards but it now explicitly states in the ad that they now accept credit cards for the purchase of gift cards.
