Giant Eagle is a grocery retailer in Ohio, Maryland, western Pennsylvania and central West Virginia. Giant Eagle offers fuel perks which is their reward program for shopping with them. For every $50 you spend you receive 10¢ off per gallon of gas at GetGo, which is their own gas station. You can also get fuel perks for buying gift cards at Giant Eagle for a large list of retailers. I have bought gift cards not just for giving out as gifts but if I know that I am going to be shopping at one of the retailers I buy a gift card for that store. In doing so I can limit how much I spend at that retailer and get flypapers for doing it. They often run specials when you get double fuel perks for purchasing gift cards (i.e. 20¢ for every $50).
I have six children and have often been able to build up to free tanks of gas (up to 30 gallons).

I live in PA and shop at Giant Eagle to get the gas "perks".  The problem with this is that in order to give you discounted fuel, they raise the price of everything in the store .  I shop at Giant Eagle on Thursday (when the weekly sales start) and ONLY if I have coupons for the things that are on sale and ONLY if by using the couppons I am actually getting a discount. 

Holiday times are better because you can purchase gift cards at Giant Eagle and for a limited time for every $50 in gift cards purchased, you receive .20 off per gallon of gas.
