Awesome Gift Card Deals + Fuel – AmEx, Visa, MC, Better Than Terms Listed!

by Adam

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!

Just found out in my area a corporate letter was on their customer service counter that said no GC can be used to purchase MO. I tried another Kroger,they did not have a letter posted but the system refused the GC payment. I just bought 2k MO from there last night.

As of November 21, 2016, Giant corrected the error, there is no points for VISA/MC/AMEX gift cards purchases. I personally tested at least at zip codes 20151, 20152
