Eligible gift cards appear to be: eBay, Children’s Place, Domino’s, Darden, Bloomin Brands, TGI Friday’s, and American Eagle.
The Fine Print
- Offer valid from 8/14/15 – 8/20/15.
- Must use Stop&Shop/Giant rewards card in order to get the points (and to redeem them as well).
This bonus offer is only available on select gift cards, but you can easily purchase eBay gift cards and then use those to buy any other third-party gift card sold on eBay which really broadens the deal here.
Assuming you can make use of these gift cards, this can really be an awesome way of scoring some free gas. The eBay option in particular makes this easier to take advantage of.
Suppose you want to get one tank of gas out of this deal: you can purchase $550 in select gift cards and receive 2200 points. You’ll then get $2.20 off a tank of gas, which can be worth as much as $77 if you fill up the 35-gallon max. This will amount to around a 14% discount on the cost of the gift cards.
For each additional $550 in gift cards purchased, you’ll get another tank of gas with the $2.20 discount.
Gas Points Details
Basic Details: Every 100 points gets you 10¢ off per gallon at Shell, up to 35 gallons. If you have 1000 points, you’ll get $1 off. If you have 2200 points, you’ll get $2.20 off per gallon.
- Max discount in some areas is $2.20. In other areas there is no max.
- You have 30 days to use the points. The day of purchase is Day #1.
- Points can only be used at partner Shell stations. You can redeem the points in a completely 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.
- 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.
Since gas prices currently hover around $2.70 per gallon, your gas will be $.50 (or free in some areas). Pro tip: use a Shell gift card and you’ll usually get the cash price. Those who are good at math will realize why it’s especially worthwhile to get the lower cash price when using fuel points.
