[Restocking] Some Stop&Shop Locations Suspend Visa/MC/Amex Gift Card Sales Temporarily
Many Stop&Shop stores have pulled all Visa, Mastercard, and American Express gift cards from the shelves. Not sure if they pulled the fixed-value cards or only the variable load.
It’s obviously not a chain-wide thing – they are even offering double fuel points this week. But some stores/areas have pulled the cards. I’ve only heard of Stop&Shop stores with this issue, not Giant or Martin’s.
According to a report, it’s a temporary measure due to fraud concerns, with the plan being to get them back in stores sooner or later.
