Here we can only fill up one vehicle. I have heard of ways people have used to get "around" this restriction, but have never tried it myself, so we stick to filling up our largest tank vehicle when we get gas points.

Our largest vehicle gas tank holds a maximum of 17 gallons.
7 x $1.00 - $7.00 out of pocket cost for every $.40 off per gallon.
$.40 x 17 gallons = $6.80 off per every seven Gatorade Chews purchased.

Where I live gas is about $3.65 per gallon. That's approximately 9 orders of Chews.
9 x 7 = 63 chews which = $63 out of pocket.
9 x $.40 = $3.60 off per gallon

Doing the math...
17x $3.65 (price per gallon)= $62.05
17 x $3.60 (savings per gallon if purchasing 63 chews)= $61.20

$62.05 - $61.20 = $.85 out of pocket for 17 gallons of gas.
$.85 + $63 (cost of the chews) = $63.85

It's only a deal if...

1. You really like Gatorade Chews and will eat them all.
2. You have fill-up needs of over 17 gallons of gas and can get it without a hassle.
3. If you somehow have coupons that will take money off the cost of the chews.
4. If your store actually has this amount of chews in stock & if the store will allow you to purchase them. (In the past I have had the store manager frown upon purchasing large amounts of a single item, even in the last hours of a sale.)

Otherwise it just is a waste of time, effort and money. If you don't like the chews and use the chews you will be paying money for something you do not eat and still have to pay a tiny bit out of pocket in order to fill up your gas tank.

As always, do what you feel best fits your needs. In our case, we will be skipping this deal as we do not eat these chew things and have no use for them. We'll wait to see if there is a better deal on something we will use in the future weeks.

I am not a big GiantPa Shopper, but you really need to look at the Frozen Instant Savings Deal this week. Buy $20 select items, get $10 off. That is 50% off right off the bat.

Also instant savings come off even when using coupons.

I just got 43 items for 16.xx after coupons and instant savings. There are lots of IP's for some of the items. I did not even use an insert coupons, all IP's and saved over $105.00 with coupons and Instant Savings.

Check out the flyer.

The IS deal with coupons does not work at Stop & Shop, but does work at sister store GiantPA. Or at least did for me today.

Thanks you very much, I plan to go there tomorrow so hopefully it still works. I know I became very frustrated in the past but willing to try again.

the answer you want very easy to get using the flyer and the calculator.
kelloggs waffles 5x1.66=8.34
birds viola 2x3.99=7.98
stouffers pizza 2x2.50=5.00
Total 21. 32
coupons: 2x1.75+1.50=5.
after coupons 16.32.

pww, please tell if you scan your mfg coupons before or after your card?
