Beware..no gas points til 7/24..grrr...

S-o-o-o angry..I shopped for my daughter who's ill..on food stamps .I spent almost $200 after coupons.I only went to Tops to add to my gas points as I knew it would be a big order...just to find out there are no gas points being given until 7/24,AFTER we redeem the points we earned last 6 weeks.I am so mad.I could have shopped at G Eagle for fuel !! or anywhere but Tops.

Cashier showed me tiny,tiny print on top front page of flyer says "redeem gas bonus points thru 7/23 "..I think this wording is entirely different than "no gas points".It is misleading.Even if the coupon promotion giving extra points is over you should still get the regular points for money spent.If I wasn't half crippled I would have said cancel/return/refund my entire order..and shop elewhere.

W-o-o-o,I'm still mad.I don't even live close ..25 miles one-way.Do you think if I call corporate and threaten to return everything I'll get any satisfaction?Do they do this often?what do you think ?

Thanks for 'listening' and beware of this.

This is the way that Tops usually runs the gas promotion...You collect gas points for so many weeks and then it ends and then there is a gas point redemption period where no points are earned. Not sure how long the redemption period is? Usually like a couple weeks I think? HTH

Yes - I mention the Gas Points Earn/Redemption Period at the top of each and every match-up thread guys. You earn for 6 weeks, then you have an additional 2 weeks after that to redeem your points. Any unused points disappear when the new earning period begins.

Every Ad states if there are points to be earned. If no points, there is no mention in the Ad.

Hope that helps!

I was planning on the points for this weeks trip as well. I got a $1 off though so that's decent. But in my opinion its not really worth it to shop at tops just for gas points. I mean I try to get them to an extent but I never purchase anything that's not on sale and nearly all of mine come from the coupon bonus. Nevertheless I'm sorry you didn't realize

TOPS..customer service from home office is not going to get you anywhere. I actually had the dairy frozen manager yell at me when I asked him if he had any more of the philly cooking cream. He was having a bad day. Problem was on sale and free after the BLINKIE coupons....and of course he didn't order enough.
I used to work for Wilson Farms which was once owned by TOPS and you know what is on sale 2 weeks out for ordering purposes. They just promote people to managers who have no concept of inventory control. If it is empty they order it, they have no concept off stocking up for a sale.
