Giant (and probably SnS) are running the typical 2x gas points on VISA Gift Cards. In case you weren't paying attention, they have done 3 things this year that have significantly decreased the value of this deal so you'll have to decide for yourself of its still worth it.

1) Max savings are 1.50/gallon, instead of the previous 2.20/gallon.

2) Max gas purchase per transaction went from 35 gallons to 20. (This effectively halves the value of the points).

3) Last I checked you can no longer buy the VISA gift cards with a credit card, so you're on the hook for $5.95 per 1000 points ($20 in gas savings) and can't mitigate this (or make money) using credit Card Cash back.

Looks like it.

Apparently I need to read better, that's great news, I wonder if that means they are accepting EMV payments. I'll have to go in and check out if that works.

  Giant in Central PA does EMV now. That's probably why they're accepting CCs again.
