Through 12/1/16 Stop & Shop is running a very generous gift card promotion where you can get $20 off your next order when you purchase $100 or more in gift cards. While most brands of gift cards are included, Amex/Visa/MC gift cards are excluded in the terms.
A reader has reached out to us to say that purchases of Visa gift cards have been triggering the coupon. Specifically he has been purchasing $500 Visa gift cards to generate the maximum spend and has been getting one coupon per transaction. He made it clear that you do need to use your Stop & Shop card as well.
It isn’t clear if other denomination cards and/or Amex/MC gift cards are working as well, but considering how many cards have grocery stores as a bonus category this could be a very lucrative deal. Keep in mind the future purchase coupons can only be used one per transaction and they expire on 12/26/16.
