New Jersey Gas Rewards Program FAQs - Stop & Shop
Using your Stop & Shop Gas Rewards in New Jersey?
How do I earn Gas Rewards points?
For every dollar spent in stores (after coupons, savings and exclusions) you’ll earn one point when you use your Stop & Shop card. For every 100 points you earn, you’ll save 10¢ per gallon up to a maximum of 35 gallons of fuel per vehicle per purchase (up to a maximum of 2,200 points per visit/$2.20 per gallon). There’s no limit to the amount of Gas Rewards you can earn. Redeem your points as you earn them or let them add up for more savings.
Can I use my discount on more than one vehicle at a time?
No. The discount can only be used on one vehicle, limited to the tank’s capacity, not to exceed 35 gallons.
Can I earn Gas Rewards points in all Stop & Shop stores?
Yes. Gas Rewards points can be earned in all Stop & Shop stores. Just use your Stop & Shop card every time you shop.
Can I earn Gas Rewards points for shopping at Peapod?
Yes. For every $1 you spend on groceries at Peapod, you earn 1 point. Points earned for shopping at Peapod become available within 48 hours after the groceries have been delivered. Please note, you must register your Stop & Shop card in your Peapod account to earn points.
Where can I redeem Gas Rewards points?
In New Jersey, Gas Rewards points can be redeemed at participating Shell stations. For a list of participating Shell stations, see the map in store or visit www.stopandshop.com or www.shell.us/stopandshop. Outside New Jersey, Gas Rewards points can be redeemed at Stop & Shop gas stations and at participating Shell stations.
Do all purchases count towards earning Gas Rewards points?
While most purchases earn Gas Rewards, the following items are excluded: alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, pharmacy purchases (New Jersey and New York, only), gift cards, milk, Metro passes or any other purchase prohibited by law.
Do I have to spend $100 in one visit?
No. There’s no need to spend $100 all at once. Your points are cumulative and add up on every visit.
How long are Gas Rewards points valid?
Gas Rewards points are valid for 30 days from the day they are earned; your date of purchase is Day 1.
When do my points become available at the pump?
Points earned at Stop & Shop are available for redemption within 24 hours. Points earned for shopping at Peapod are available for redemption within 48 hours after the groceries have been delivered.
How do I redeem my Gas Rewards points?
In New Jersey, simply hand your Stop & Shop Rewards card to the Shell full-serve attendant, along with your method of payment. The attendant will select Stop & Shop Rewards on the pump screen prompt, swipe your Rewards card, select your method of payment, and then begin fueling. NOTE: The gas will be pumped at the posted price but the amount the customer pays will be less the Stop & Shop Gas Rewards savings.
Your Stop & Shop Gas Rewards savings will appear post-fueling on your receipt. Your savings will equal 10¢ per gallon for every 100 points you have earned (up to a maximum of 2,200 points per visit/$2.20 per gallon).
Outside New Jersey, at the pump, simply insert or swipe your purple Stop & Shop card with the magnetic strip, or key in the 13 digit number on your key tag (the key tag does not have a magnetic strip and that is why you have to key in the number). Then select your form of payment and fuel grade. The price will drop 10¢ per gallon for every 100 points you have earned (up to a maximum of 2,200 points per visit/$2.20 per gallon).
If a financial institution has a fraud limit, what happens?
If there is a fraud limit on your payment card (usually between $50 - $100) the pump will cut off once you have reached your limit even if you have not filled up to the 35 gallon limit. All points available to you during that transaction will be redeemed.
How do I know how many points I have and when they expire?
Total points can be tracked on the bottom of your receipt, online at www.stopandshop.com by viewing your account page or via the FREE Stop & Shop mobile app. Point expiration dates can be viewed online or through the Stop & Shop mobile app. If you have questions about your Stop & Shop card or points, please call our card hotline 1-877-366-2668 Monday through Friday 9 am to 5 pm EST.
Do I have to use all of my available points when I fill up?
Yes. Your available points will be redeemed in their entirety in 100 point increments. Any leftover points will carry over. For example, if you have earned 125 points and redeem 100 points for a 10¢ per gallon savings, 25 points will carry over. Please keep in mind that Gas Rewards points expire 30 days from the day they are earned.
I went to redeem my points and they were gone. How could this have happened?
There are several reasons this could happen. The points might have expired. Points expire 30 days from the day they are earned. Or, another member of your family may have already redeemed the points. Points are shared among your household. Card numbers are automatically linked to a “household” account when card holders at some point shared the same last name and address. If you are unsure if your card is linked to any other family members, please give us a call. In either case, please call our card hotline 1-877-366-2668 Monday through Friday 9 am to 5:00 pm EST.
Can I still earn points if I have a privacy block on my purchases?
No. If you have chosen not to have your Stop & Shop purchases recorded you will not earn points. If you wish to participate in the Gas Rewards program, you can change your Stop & Shop card privacy preferences online at www.stopandshop.com, or by calling our card hotline 1-877-366-2668 Monday through Friday 9 am to 5:00 pm EST. Please note, you will begin to earn points from the time you change your Stop & Shop card preferences. Point accruals are not retroactive.
Does the Gas Rewards program replace the Save 5% program?
Yes. Until January 2012, New Jersey legislation had prohibited the implementation of our popular Gas Rewards program in this state. We are now able to bring our Gas Rewards program to our customers in New Jersey. Unlike Save 5%, this is an ongoing program and customers continuously earn Gas Rewards points. They will be able to save 10¢, 20¢, 30¢ or more per gallon. Customers save 10¢ per gallon for every 100 points they earn; they earn 1 point for every dollar they spend using their Stop & Shop card.
I liked the savings on groceries that I earned with Save 5%. Is there any chance you’ll bring it back?
Yes. Save 5% is also a popular program and it is possible that, in addition to other savings program opportunities, we would explore running an occasional Save 5% opportunity in the future.
