Giant Eagle Fuelperks+ Fuel Redemption Overview

Giant Eagle Fuelperks+ Grocery Redemption Overview
50 perks are worth a 2% discount off any grocery order on a single order of up to $10,000 in qualifying purchases.
Do Giant Eagle Perks Expire?
Yes, perks will expire after ~75 days, on average, from the day on which they are earned. More specifically, perks expire on rolling Tuesdays no earlier than two months after the month in which they are earned. Each account is randomly assigned the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th Tuesday of the month and your perks will always expire on that assigned Tuesday,
Additionally, when you redeem perks, any remaining “amount towards your next reward” that has not passed the 50 perks level to be converted into a reward will be reset to zero.
How Much Are Giant Eagle Perks Worth?
Fuel: Giant Eagle Perks are worth between 0.0¢ / point (if you let them expire) and 6.0¢ / point if you are able to maximize the 30 gallon max discount. Given the average fuel tank of 14-18 gallons, it is reasonable to assume that Giant Eagle Perks are worth between 2.8¢ and 3.6¢ per point when used for fuel.
Grocery: Giant Eagle Perks are worth between 0.0¢ / point (if you let them expire) and $4 if you purchase $10,000 (the max) worth of groceries. Assuming you do not let any perks expire and a more reasonable $50-100 grocery purchase, it is reasonable to assume that Giant Eagle Perks are worth between 2.0¢ and 4.0¢ per point when used for groceries.
Should I use my Giant Eagle Perks for Gas or Grocery?
Based off the math above, you will receive a relatively equal return on your Giant Eagle Perks whether you use them for Gas or Grocery.

Can You Use GetGo Gift Cards for Gas Purchases?
Yes! That said, if you purchase the GetGo gift cards from Giant Eagle, Market District or GetGo, you will not receive fuelperks for the purchase of the gift card. You will only receive fuelperks when the gift card is redeemed.
If we assume that each perk is worth 3.0¢ (see above), that means that on normal days when gift card purchases earn 1 perk per dollar, we can purchase gift cards from Giant Eagle, Market District and GetGo at an effective 3% discount. If they run a 3x Giant Eagle perks promo day, we can purchase gift cards at an effective 9% discount.
