    5p off petrol for a 50 spend at Tesco 31st Oct 06 at 5:39 PM
    What's the deal?

    Spend £50 in store at Tesco (not online) between now and 12 November (inclusive) and you'll get a voucher for 5p off fuel at Tesco service stations. As always there are restrictions on what you can spend your £50 to get your voucher (tobacco, lottery, baby products and petrol are excluded).

    When do you have to use the vouchers by?

    Once you've received a voucher it must be used within two weeks.

    Don't assume this is still the best price for your fuel

    While 5p off your fuel sounds good it's not necessarily the cheapest. To double check you're getting the best saving read my Petrol/Diesel Cost Cutting article first. If 5p off is then still good for you then go for it!

    As I was performing a bodily function in Asda on Sunday (In the appointed area I might add), I happened to glance slightly upwards, and there in a little wooden frame was an advert for Asda credit cards. "Are there no lengths to which advertisers will go to get their message across ?" I thought to myself but closer inspection revealed that Asda will knock 5p/litre off fuel if it is purchased with one of their credit cards.
    I am not advocating that anyone should apply for yet another c.c. but I always pay mine off in full every month and Asda fuel is usually the cheapest in my area. I'm going to read the T + Cs, at my convenience !

    Sorry to rain on this parade but I have actually written to Tesco to complain about the reappearance of this deal. I don't want the deal takne away, I wouldn't be so mean, but I do think it should be tuned to so that it is available to EVERYBODY.
    This is what I have said to Tesco:

    " Do you know how difficult it is for a single person, or someone on a reduced income to spend 50 in one transaction at the supermarket? Even at this time, with Christmas shopping to do, many people simply do not have the available finance to benefit from this deal.

    Yet those who are shopping for larger families, or are better off, can benefit every time they shop.

    I think this deal is elitist and discriminatory and it makes me mad that the supermarket that trades on every little helps is not helping the very people who may need it most.

    It would make considerably more sense, and be a great deal more fair, if customers could save their till receipts (within a reasonable time frame) and claim their discounted fuel via customer services when they have reached a 50 spend. They way, we can all benefit."

    I found one of the 5p off vouchers left at the self service till I used at the w/end, I happily pocketed it and will use it before the due date of 11/11/06.

    I was disappointed that they don't offer this deal for online shopping as I usually do my monthly shop online. I usually spend over 50 online so I can use the tesco online vouchers that you can get by searching the web and in other parts of this forum.

    So I decided to work out which gave me a better saving. I worked out that I need about 50 litres to fill up my tank. 50 litres x 0.05p = 2.50. That is half the amount I save from the 5 voucher or sometimes you get over 500 points vouchers. If you get it delivered on a tuesday, delivery is only 3.99. I could bump up my shop to 75 and get 7.50 off as well. Remember this is my month's shopping for a small family of 3. The advantages of online shopping is that I save fuel and time and it's easier to find deals online and it's more difficult to do impulsive shopping online. Oh! If you have the cashback card that you pay of every month then you save even more.

    I hope this helps some of you.

    Are you sure it's 5p as it used to be 2p, sadly no mention on Asda website.

    No it is 2p perlitre and also free delivery on shopping if use an asda card and can comibine with codes too (might need to be over 50 on card) but funny has vanished from the website too popular maybe!

    Tesco is 5p off perlitre using the voucher
  • barrwalk
    TESCO Petrol discount
    My local TESCO have put up the price by 4p and then offered a 5p voucher. The real discount if therefore 1p. per litre. Who are they fooling?
  • Munki
    The fuel at my local Tescos was 83.9p/l, and after I used the 5p voucher it brings it down to 78.9p/l.... unbelievable! I haven't bought fuel that cheap for ages! :-))

    I can't say I've noticed my Tescos (or any other petrol station in my area) put the fuel prices up unless it was related to fuel rises. There is a lot of competition between garages and they all keep a close eye on each other.

    Nice to save.

    I agreee I cannot afford a big spend in one shop like that without putting it on CC which I am terrible at times at paying. Also you think thats bad, I was in my local Tesco the other day and they are playing about with the car park again, so I was nosey and asked CS what they are doing and they said that they are putting the ticket barrier back up as it was being abused (in middle of town centre with 3 hours free parking) so I was ok not a problem, then she said that you had to spend a minimum of 20 I cannot believe it, I'm just praying that its chinese whispers, I always do my shopping in tesco and usually spend a little amount at a time, looks like I'll be going to Asda.

    Is it possible to by a 50 quid tv or something, get the discount voucher, use the voucher, then get a full cash refund for the item? Can they invalidate the voucher if its unused? or tell if you have used the voucher?

    Anyone from TESCO know?

    Hi Ian

    The vouchers have a valid until date - usually 2 or 3 weeks from date of purchase.

    I actually got the 5p off with my online shop this week. It wasn't the usual till spit but a more substantial voucher headed www.tesco.com and with a serial nubmer on the bottom.

    Happy days
  • IanMitchel
    Thanks,

    I do understand that the vouchers have a valid date but my point was can you buy something to then get the voucher, use the voucher(while it's valid) then take what you bought back for a full refund.

    Would they query that?

    Yes, you can do that but it seems like an awful lot of trouble to save 2.50 ie 5p a litre off 50 litres
