[Expired] Giant, Stop&Shop, Martin’s: 2x Fuel Points on Mastercard Gift Cards [10/4-10/10]

Deal has expired, view more giant deals by clicking here.

The Offer

Stop&ShopGiantMartin’s (not yet showing)

Giant/Stopandshop/Martin’s have an offer showing in their circular for October 4 – October 10:

  • Get 2x fuel points on the purchase Mastercard gift cards.

Gift cards generally don’t earn fuel points at all at Giant/S&S/Martin’s, but occasionally they release offers like this to get points on gift card purchases.

 

The Fine Print

  • Valid 10/4/19 – 10/10/19 (starts Friday)
  • Must use store card to get and use the points
  • Be sure to double check that your local store is running this offer before buying
  • “We now accept credit cards for the purchase of Visa, Mastercard, and American Express gift cards”

Gas Points Details

Every 100 points gets you 10¢ off per gallon at Shell, up to 20 gallons. If you have 1000 points, you’ll get $1 off. If you have 1500 points, you’ll get $1.50 off per gallon. 

  • Max discount in some areas is $1.50. In other areas, there might not be any max.
  • You have 30 days to use the points. The day of purchase is Day #1. (Giant PA and Martins might expire at the end of the following month.)
  • Points can only be used at partner Shell stations. You can redeem the points in a different area from where you got the points, but only if that Shell station is a partner. Check out the gas locator for Stop & Shop and for Giant for exact listings of which Shell stations are included. (Giant PA and Martins might only be valid at their own gas stations.)
  • See the FAQ for more details. Some of the details vary by area and store.
  • Points usually are available immediately, but I’ve had on occasion where it took a day until they showed up and were usable.
  • Pro tip: Use a Shell gift card and you’ll usually get the cash price; it’s especially worthwhile to get the lower cash price when using fuel points.

Our Verdict

Nice to see this back. Use a card that earns bonus rewards at the grocery.

was the “not yet showing” comment applicable only to Martin’s? I just took a quick look at the giant circular and didn’t see the offer

How many gift cards do they let you buy at a time? Can I buy 2x $500 cards?

I think it varies by store, but I have done 6x $500 on the same day, I believe the posted limit at my store is $5,000 per day.

Giant in PA also offers 10x gas points on Happy Gift Cards for this week (10/4 – 10/10).

Has anybody tried to buy gifts cards at Home Depot or wherever with those Happy Gift Cards recently?

Haven’t tried at HD, but I’ve had no problem at BB&B. I buy a Happy Lady for $206.95 and use it to buy a $200 VGC at BB&B. I get over 2000 points for $6.95 vs. 1000 points for $5.95 with the MC.

Thanks, been pushing the low balance GCs for a couple weeks now. Time to fill up big after a long time.

Anyone who already made the purchase can confirm points were posted correctly? Sometimes points were not credited correctly in the first day.

Can confirm they are posting 2x from 3 different giant locations. No bonus points this time around

Stop&Shop, gas points posted immediately just fine.
Hope that Amex BCP will give its cashback!

Yes working. I got 3x$500 in NJ S&S yesterday afternoon single transaction and 3K points posted immediately (CS did manually write down my ID details on account of the large 1.5K CC amount but no further hassles). In same trip also filled up at local Shell which had just dropped gas price by 5 cents. The Chase 30cent stacked with the S&S 1500 points and 5 cents Gold and also had an extra 5cent Gold+ for anniversary treat that Shell sent out for completing 1 year Gold. So ended up with $1.90 off and paid less than $12 for 20 gallons with already discounted Shell GC.
Note here is to always check your FR account on mobile just before filling up as you could have surprise 1 time use points that would go to waste if you filled up less than 20 gallons.

For the $.30 Chase discount were you able to use Shell gc to pay or did you need to use Chase Pay?

GC.Like I said above, all 3 discounts stacked and I only used the one GC.payment up front. No Chase Pay use required to get the discount – only link Chase Pay in the Shell app is sufficient. Just note that it may take 2 to 3 days. I did the link couple days before my previous fillup and expected the 30c to post in 48 hours but it took longer…maybe 4 days.
