Safeway no longer rewarding Arco gift cards?

I sometimes buy Arco gift cards from Safeway. Using my Blue Amex Preferred this gives me 6% cashback as well as 2 x Safeway gas rewards.

Arco gas is already amongst the lowest priced and is top tier so getting 6% off is a good deal.

And $100 in gift cards earns 20c off a gallon of Safeway Gas.

Recently, I had a Safeway coupon for 4 x rewards so got $100 in Arco gift cards.

But no rewards showed up. Not even the usual 2 x gift card rewards. I called up and had it credited.

But I'm wondering if this is a new thing to expect going forward?

Meet the safeway thread:

Truthfully I have never heard of Arco but in terms of GC purchase/rewards at Safeway anything could have happened as they often have wonkey deals. Ask in the thread and see if anyone else has a better answer. You did the best you could and got your adjustment.

Gas gift cards are no longer giving rewards points.

Thanks. Is that officially mentioned anywhere? In the offer I used, the terms excluded Chevron / Texaco gift cards but not other brands.

This just happened to me two days ago and it has been few months that I had not bought ARCO gift cards. Is this only on ARCO GC's or on all the GC's? Thanks in advance.
