Free Fuel Points at Stop&Shop/Giant with New Visa Gift Card Deal
Stop & Shop and Giant have a new Visa gift cards deal starting Friday that can get you great fuel savings. It can also be stacked with another savings deal that runs through the weekend. Let’s take a look.
Earn 3x Gas Rewards Points when you purchase any Visa Gift Cards with your Stop & Shop, Giant or Martin’s card.
- Offer valid 4/06/2018 to 4/12/2018
- Must use your Stop&Shop/Giant card
- Offer valid only on Visa gift card purchases
Gift card purchases don’t normally earn fuel points, but through this promotion, you get 3X. So a $500 gift card for example will earn you 1,500 fuel points. Over the weekend, until 4/8, it can get even better if you also have added this offer to your account. That same $500 gift card purchase will also save you $15 on your grocery purchase (requires purchase of $250 or more in Visa Gift Cards).
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. This quarter there’s even more options to earn 5%.
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 1500 points. That would be $1.50 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 great deal for people who drive since it get’s you very cheap or close to free gas and a small profit through credit card rewards. It’s also a better deal than the usual 2X offer. Make sure you take advantage of it between 4/6 and 4/8 so you can stack both offers.
The grocery discount coupon can be used only once, but you can can get as many fuel points as you want. Just figure out how many points you need, and purchase accordingly. Points expire in 30 days, so you don’t overspend if you can’t use them.
