My Stop & Shop Card
Before we even get started you want to make sure that you have a Stop & Shop Card. Your Stop & Shop Card is the Key to the Kingdom so if you don’t have one you will need to sign up for one. You can sign up ONLINE or in the store. If you sign up in the store you will receive your card right away. Now that you’ve signed up for your card you can start saving.
In the stores and online, your Stop & Shop Card is your key to great deals, free offers, special savings, even ways to help your community. Here’s a sampling:
- Weekly Card specials
- Gas savings and rewards
- Bonus Buy Specials
Once you have your card, make sure you set up an ONLINE ACCOUNT
- View your savings
- Track your reward points
- Receive exclusive load to card offers
- Pre-order for pickup
- Find local store information
- Save your favorite Savory Recipes
Before I start shopping, are there any other ways I can save at Stop & Shop?
Gas 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 $1.50 off up to 20 gallons of fuel per vehicle per purchase. 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. Keep in mind though that Gas Rewards expire in 30 days. There are also special offers each week that allow you to earn extra points by purchasing specific items. Check out the Understanding Stop & Shop Gas Points post at How to Shop for FREE for the specifics on earning Gas Points.
Load2Card (L2C or LTC) – A convenient coupon tool that lets you LOAD coupons directly onto your Stop & Shop Card. When you check out, any eligible coupons will automatically be deducted from your total. Since the majority of the LTC Coupons are Manufacturers Coupons, they can not be stacked with your paper Manufacturers Coupons. If you do happen to receive a LTC Store Coupon then you may stack it with a paper Manufacturers Coupon. HERE are some great tips and tricks when it comes to getting the most out of your L2C coupons.
Stop & Shop Coupon Policy
Every store (CVS, Rite Aid, Stop & Shop etc) has their own coupon acceptance policies so it is best to print a copy and keep it with you for reference. Here is the most current Stop & Shop Coupon Policy
