Doctor of Credit had a post earlier this month alerting readers to 4x fuel points on gift cards at Giant and Stop & Shop through December 1, 2016. However, unfortunately Visa, MasterCard, and AmEx gift cards were supposedly excluded as per the official terms.
- Buy $100 in merchant gift cards and get a $20 voucher toward your next shopping trip
- Get 4x fuel points on merchant gift cards
- Visa/MC/Amex gift cards are excluded
- Must use your store-card to get these deals
Well, our team decided to test those exclusions, and it appears that the 4x gas points are being applied!
Tip: Buy a $500 Visa gift card for $5.95 and you will earn 2,000 gas points. Next, spend 1,500 points for $1.5 per gallon which translates to a $30 discount. Finally, spend the remaining 500 points for $0.5 per gallon, providing yet another $10 back. That’s a total savings of $34 for buying just one gift card!
