BRRR its cold. Its a credit card. Not a good choice to fill up on petrol, especially in our economic climate.

Is the credit card any good, or just run of the mill?
#4
Read the small print on that. It's only valid if the petrol price is greater than £1.00

Since when have we been able to fill up less then that, not since I was born. :p

Yes for the 3p and 6p to work.

Otherwise it's still 3% (close enough to 3p currently anyhow)

When you use as much fuel as Ido a week this can bea significant saving...
#7
I think this is a good deal if you are able to keep up to date with your credit card payments.

Small print says 3p and 6p a litre based on £1/litre of petrol (i.e. 3% and 6% cashback)

6% cashback is phenomenal - 3% for the rest of the year is pretty good.

Voted hot! :-D
#8
Still can't understand why this is being voted cold!

It's free money people!!!

Ok you have to be organised with your money but coming into a recession these are the sort of deals that will really help. Money off something almost all of us have no choice in spending every single week.

Rant over.

How would you pay your credit card balance off? Phone? Free?

Erm. Every time you fill up, you transfer the amount spent on petrol out of your current account onto your credit card. I do it all the time on my Marks & Spencers card. Yum.
#11
Voted hot by me.
A lot of people have a thing against oil companies - rightly or wrongly. It still does'nt stop them filling up with petrol though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
#12
I use this credit card along with the Shell Drivers Card and it does save me a couple of quid a month which ain't bad!
#13
Shell petrol is always at least 3p more expensive than anywhere else... what's the point? Just buy it from Morrisons.

Your earned Shell Cash Back on all spend as shown on your statement will only be redeemable against the value of future Shell fuel purchases in GB. If Shell fuel purchases in GB are less than your earned Shell Cash Back as shown on your statement, the difference will be rolled over to your next statement to be redeemed against future Shell fuel purchases in GB. If you do not purchase Shell fuel in GB for six months or more, any Shell Cash Back earned more than six months previously but not redeemed will be lost.

Alternatively get yourself an Asda credit card and save 2p off every litre of fuel purchased from them. (equivilent to about 2.25% @ 88.9p/litre). No pfaffing about on what the discount can be used for or if it might be lost - the discount on the Asda card is deducted straight from the pump price.

You might even find that Asda fuel is cheaper than Shell fuel too! :thumbsup:

Only if you have an Asda fuel station near you. No good for most people in the country however. Shell are all over the place and as cheap as Tesco and Sainsburys in my area.

Shell?? Boooo!!:x
Would be a good deal if they weren't (in my opinion) extortionists and always the last to reduce their pump prices!

I'm sure most people who spend £160 per month on fuel won't be too far away from an Asda fuel station at some time on their journeys ;-)

That's just wrong. In the North East Shell are the cheapest of all the oil companies and at least as cheap as the supermarkets. Even the Shell at Easington Services on the A19 is always identical to the Asda in Boldon (largest Walmark in Europe).

I think the egg card deal is better - 2 % instant cashback + 1 egg money cashback.

Shell and petrol companies add additives and detergents to the petrol, so over time they extend the life of your engine. Although supermarkets buy the petrol from these companies, they get the petrol without the additives and detergents added which is why the petrol at supermarkets are slightly cheaper.

If you can buy petrol from Shell and through their credit card and drivers club which overtime will equate to roughly the same price as the supermarkets, it sounds like a good option to me as your engine is going to last longer.
#22
Make up your own minds on the respective quality of fuels from supermarkets and oil companies. I certainly remember which forecourts had all the problems with engine failures earlier in the year ...

That aside, in my area Shell tends to match supermarket prices. I defected from Tesco and got one of these cards six months or so ago, pay the balance in full every month by dd, and save 3 % on the roughly £ 1,500 p.a. I spend on fuel. £ 50 in my pocket (give or take, together with Shell's Drivers Club card) at the end of the year, not counting the 1 % cashback you get on all other spending.

Is it worth the hassle of getting yet another card and keep track of things? I guess everybody has to decide that for themselves. Hot for me. If you don't want it, fine. But why knock it as a moneysaving option?
#23
Think about it guys! The average fill will result in a saving of £2.50 a time. If like me you fill 40+ times a year then you are looking at the tidy sum of £100+ in your pocket per year.

Voted hot.

Fair enough what you say,but I use 35 litres of diesel a day and by me shell is 5p dearer than morrisons.Thats about a tenner a week.Add to that I get a fiver voucher every week or so with their miles card.My last van went 370,000 miles and was still going strong when the cam belt went so getting a few miles extra out of an engine,against the day to day saving of supermarket fuel just doesn`t add up for me.Not voting hot or cold though cos I can see it might help people if they are near a shell thats the cheapest around.
#25
Hot deal, just set up a direct debit to pay of the full amount and u wont get any nasty suprises.

You mean you didn't vote your own deal cold? :roll:

Must have been the other (less biased) members of HUKD that have done so ;-)

Edit: it's costing you over £80 to fill up? :shock:
Either you are paying too much for the fuel in the first case or you should get something more efficient than that gas guzzler and save even more money.
Do you realise how much fuel you waste lugging around that 80kg of fuel?

I would get over £200 of morrisons vouchers in a year
#28
I have one already and it works for me, don`t asda only give cash back on first 4k spend now ???? also shell points for retail vouchers.

as I only get higher octane fuel asda is out of the question my car wouldn`t run right
#29
I did look into this but I read "3p and 6p a litre Cash Back based on a minimum Shell pump price of £1.00 per litre" meaning that if any fuel on the forecourt (or do they mean country) is cheaper than £1 per litre then you wont get the cash back. They dont make it very clear.
I went for the Virgin Money card in the end for the 16 months interest free on balance transfers and 10% off at Zavvi.

P.S. Shell is always the cheapest petrol round my way.
#30
Hot from me.

In my area Shell are always the cheapest anyway so 3% back (deducted off you statement) is a bonus. I buy everything onto this card and have got over £50 back (for nothing) in about 3-4 months.
It also helps with budgeting as I pay it, along with all my other direct debits, when I get paid so know what ever is left in the bank after that is my disposable income for the month - no more making sure I've enough for petrol and shopping in the last month.

I think it is mainly cold because of the sheep - you can see the thought process - Credit card = Bad, Shell = evil Shell Creditcard = I think I'll go and kill myself.:roll:

No limit to the amount of fuel (and discount) you can get with the Asda card.

The Asda card does have some form of reward points for other purchases with I think is limited to the initial £12k per year, but I don't use it for that as there are better cashback cards available for non-fuel purchases.

I don't believe that is what you get with this card. See terms & conditions as posted earlier.

On the contrary, I think the process is:

Fuel discount: Are Shell the cheapest supplier in the first instance? Is this the best discount available based on value and the terms & conditions you must adhere to to obtain the 'discount'

Other purchases: Are there other cards available that offer a better cash-back than the 1% this card offers? (Answer: yes ;-))
#33
Shell have been no more than 1p a litre dearer than the supermarkets in my area recently - I think this is actually a very good deal. It's a shame most of the Shell garages in the highlands have now been sold and have turned into "Gleaner" garages.

In asnwer to your questions

As long as you make a fuel purchase in a month then the previous months cashback is automatically deducted from your statement - if not it is still accumulated and then deducted when you do buy fuel - most people by fuel every month

Are shell the cheapest - for me yes.

Other purchases - Not from a quick glance at moneysupermarket.com - apart from into offers and annual rebate cards.:p

That was my point - Shell will not reduce their prices UNLESS they are forced to, where their sales will fall because they have lower priced competition

Sheep - No! Common sense - Yes!
When Shell lower their pump prices before the others then I might go back to them
To be cajoled into getting the price that they should charge by having to get their credit card, then I don't see this as a good deal.
There may be regional differences in prices but on the whole my opinion is they rip off the motorist - if supermarkets did not sell petrol just think of the potential consequences - £2 a litre??:whistling:

The same as 'Tesco' then.They are always the last to reduce prices around my way and won't reduce their prices unless they have to, unlike Asda and Morrison's who prefer to be the front runners.

You get 2% instant cashback with your egg money card at shell until March 2009 I think.
#39
Amazing to read all the thoughts.

Point 1: The 90p we pay for a litre of petrol at the moment, 65p is government tax. Shell (or asda etc) are only charging 25p per litre. This works out at 72% tax. When petrol was £1.10 the duty was the same and only represented 50%.

Point 2: The reason why supermarket fuel is cheaper? It is rubbish! They buy the cheapest fuel they can. Do you want to put rubbish fuel in your car? Shell; Texaco; Esso - Great. BP possibly. All the rest I would not touch with a bargepole. Someone said that the detergents make your engine last longer, this is true. But what was not mentioned was the better fuel economy. Shell, texaco etc will give you 3 - 5 more miles per gallon, way better than any saving in supermarket fuel.

I learned this about ten years ago. I had an old Alfa Romeo with two twin choke weber carbs. Lovely powerful car. I was getting 10 miles to the gallon! My Alfa expert asked me what fuel I was using, and told him, "whatever is cheapest, mostly sainsburys". He told me to buy Texaco/Esso. I switched to Texaco and it went up to 18 MPG. I was spending £200 per month on fuel, this went down to £110.
