Giant Eagle grocery stores have what looks like an amazing promo starting today: earn 20c in Fuelperks for every $50 you spend on all Travel, Auto, and Anywhere category gift cards. As you can see below, the example images include Visa and Mastercard gift cards, so I expect those fit in the “Anywhere” category, which makes this a huge return if you have a use for the fuel points.
- Get $0.20 in Giant Eagle Fuelperks for every $50 you spend on all Travel, Auto, and Anywhere category gift cards from 2/21/19 to 2/27/19
- Direct link to this ad (see page 4)
- Direct link to buy gift cards online
- Valid February 21-27
- Valid in-store and online
This looks like a fantastic deal if you can use Giant Eagle fuel points (which, best I can tell can be used at GetGo gas stations in Indiana, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia).
Fuelperks can be used on up to 30 gallons of gas, meaning you’ll earn up to $6 off for every $50 you spend in gift cards. That’s a return of 12%. If you can fill up a 30-gallon tank, you’d therefore save as much as $24 with the purchase of a $200 Visa Gift Card, which certainly beats the $6.95 activation fee online. I’m not sure whether or not online purchases from Giant Eagle would trigger extra points on a card that earns a good category bonus at US supermarkets.
Of course, if you do not have a use for 30 gallons of fuel and/or do not live in an area near these stores, this may not be useful for you. As pointed out by GC Galore, Giant Eagle FuelPerks expire at the end of the month two months after the month in which they are earned. In other words, fuel points you earn today will be valid until the end of April, giving you enough time for a road trip or two even if you don’t live in the coverage area for using your points.
