[Expired] Giant, Stop&Shop, Martin’s: 3x Fuel Points on Visa Gift Cards [3/15-3/21]

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

The Offer

Stop&ShopGiantMartin’s

Giant/Stopandshop/Martin’s have an offer showing in their circular for March 15 – 21:

  • Get 3x fuel points on the purchase Visa 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 3/15/19 – 3/21/19 (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

We haven’t seen any of these Visa deals since November. There’s usually a heavy uptick during summer months, and I expect we’ll be seeing many more over the coming months. Remember to use your Discover card for up to $1,500 at the grocery this quarter, or use a card that earns bonus rewards at the grocery.

Is there something similar for the PNW? Moved to Seattle from DC and paying for gas makes me sad.

OMG, this made my eyes lite up like I won the lottery.

Have to laugh that the terms say that Visa gift cards do not apply for this promotion.

I just used up my last 5 Gallon can of gas and the thought of buying gas was giving me nightmares 🙂

I remember someone mentioned about the method on how to use stop and shop fuel points and shell rewards points together. Anyone know how ?

Eric

Yes, you just have to link the accounts together. I don’t recall if you enter the S&S card # on the Fuel Rewards site or vice versa but I remember it was easy to do.

Tom

Do you mean S&S and Giant points together?

Jason
Jason

Shell fuel rewards and stop and shop gas points. I am able to stack these 2 together per above advice so saving $1.6 per gallon today on two cars which is 20 gallons total. That 10 cents is from T-Mobile Tuesday deal, expiring today 3/15.

Right. You can actually create a Giant account too and add to your FR account. Have someone in Giant area load for you and you can get $3.00 off per gallon.

Login to the S&S/Giant site and link your FR account.

Also find the link to get Gold status with Chase for the extra 5c. I haven’t bought gas at Shell in a long time since they are not cheap in my area but with the $1.55 discount they will be.

Fuel points didn’t post automotically this morning. Had to go to customer service to get this corrected.

Same here, Stop&Shop in MA. This was on the black-colored package.

black kevlar didn’t post automatically, but Lake design did for me.

Just ran out to S&S and got the black Visa one at the customer service center and points posted right away. Pump my car right after too. Everything is good here in MA

This is a recurring problem with the Kevlar design. I just have to remember to get another package design.

do i have to add this to card before buying like ACME. i see this in weekly add pdf however not available in sections where in i can add it with plus button. TIA

No, it’s not an e-coupon like at Acme. Just buy it and you should see the points added to your card.

Is there any limit on visa cards for each Stop and Shop card?

Gerald
Gerald

No, but points expire after 30 days. I’ve never tried to buy more than one $500 card per store per day, but that’s just me being cautious.

Russ

It’s not a limit per-card, but S&S in my area (near Boston) limits me to $5k total per day. At $2k+ they log my ID info in their book. I always go to the cust svc desk to pay, since doing more than one card at a regular checkout freaks out most cashiers, and when it’s $500+ it requires a supervisor override anyway.
