PURCHASE, N.Y. — Stop & Shop has expanded its gas rewards programs to customers in New Jersey.
Beginning Sept. 10, shoppers will be able to redeem their Stop & Shop Gas Rewards points at more than 135 participating Shell stations in New Jersey. For every dollar spent at Stop & Shop on purchases (some restrictions apply), customers will earn one point, and for every 100 points, they will receive 10 cents off per gallon of their next fuel purchase at participating New Jersey Shell stations. Customers will be able to save up to $2.20 per gallon by shopping at Stop & Shop and presenting their Stop & Shop loyalty card. Unlike other states, the discount will not appear at the pump but will be reflected on the customer's receipt. Once points are earned, they can be redeemed at any participating Shell station within 30 days from the date of purchase.
The program, which launched two years ago, initially wasn't permitted in New Jersey; however, legislation passed by the state and signed into law by Gov. Chris Christie allows New Jersey motorists to enjoy the same savings already available to drivers in other states, including New York, Massachusetts Rhode Island and Connecticut.
"We are pleased that we can help our customers reduce the cost of filling their gas tank," said Don Sussman, president of Stop & Shop's New York metro division. Stop & Shop applauds our elected officials for enacting legislation that allows us to partner with Shell and allow our New Jersey customers to enjoy the same benefits that Stop & Shop customers in neighboring states have long enjoyed."
