now first off... I KNOW Tesco are still more expensive than Morrisons and BP at the moment for fuel... (edit - MOST TESCO's NOW DOWN IN PRICE eg UNLEADED 99.9)

but they'll be the same price by Monday when this promo starts (promo will be nationwide). Last time Morrison's did the price cut thing the folk at Head Office took 3-4 days to issue the "reduce prices" notice ( when realising the difference in profit I think!!).

However if they do not cut them by now which I doubt will be the case, with the 5p a litre voucher it'll still bring the price of fuel a bit under Morrisons and BP prices.

I know this is occuring because for my sins I work in a Tesco petrol station and last night had to read and sign a memo from Head Office about it and how to process the coupons. Starts Monday and they stop giving out the vouchers beginning of Dec sometime I can't remember date offhand, so it'll be running for a good while.

And folk ARE going elsewhere at the moment - what a difference to our usual queues out the forecourt!! Last night was soooo quiet it was the quietest I've seen it in years. Not that us staff mind of course!! We prefer it nice and quiet... but I'm sure Tesco doesn't! And my poor manager and us had folk earbashing us all last night and today about the price difference. I wish folk would understand we have no power to just drop prices without the Head Office say so :)

Sorry I know I ramble but know folk would ask things I've covered in here...
hope this has not been posted before - I sure couldn't find it when doing a search.

is fuel made from dinosaurs?

But you still have to spend £50 on groceries (exclusions apply too).

If I put 50 litres of fuel into my car with this voucher, I'm only saving £2.50. I guarantee you'll save more than that just by shopping elsewhere as Tesco's is downright expensive. ASDA's been voted the best value Supermarket for the last 11 or so years for a good reason!
#3
I'm sticking with Asda and Morrisons - no strings attached
Xb0xGuru's right, away from their advertised "credit crunch beaters" Tesco is expensive and prices vary wildly depending on where you shop.
#4
Bearing in mind that Morrissona are offering 5p per liter vouchers when you spend just £40, this may not bring customers back to Tesco forecourts.

not fogetting the clubcard points!!

Big Save!!

Any store which relies on custom by offering coupons and discounts should be avoided at all costs. ASDA offers all customers - members or not - the same discounts. The Tesco ClubCard Scheme is a marketing ploy which many fall for unfortunately!
[mod]#7
Rather buy at Asda where I don't have to spend £50+ to get cheap petrol.

I use the word "cheap" VERY loosely

morrisons miles card = 1.5p per litre so technically morrisons is 98.4p a litre, beats ****** tesco clubclard

this offer is not to "bring people back to Tesco's forecourts"

this offer was decided BEFORE the price reductions at other garages
#10
why so cold?

not bad off a deal especially if you do you shopping at tesco as it is

If you do your shopping at Tescos and are looking to save money, you'd have the sense to shop elsewhere!
#12
Unfortunately however, most of the (non extra special range) non-branded and own-label food at Asda is extremely poor quality. Never tried Morrisons. I've found that Tesco food is reasonably good quality.

Therefore HOT from me :)

Hello, Where is this being offered. Just wondering...:?
#15
Cold from me as these vouchers only have a life of 14 days. With the low mileage I do currently, I find two out of three of these invariably goes to waste.
#17
I'm sorry but thats talking rubbish.. Tesco are usually 8p a litre higher than Asda in our area (Caerphilly).

The 5p off still makes them 3p a litre higher..

Definately cold from me.

They certainly are - they're also free, unlike savings from Tesco. :whistling:
#19
Cold vote here from me.Tesco's are always more expensive on fuel.The £50 thing is also a SCAM, as you have to spend the £50 in one purchase, people are forced to spend more than they want to on groceries meaning more profit for Tesco!

Probably the same people who try and save 50p on something by spending ages looking for it cheaper elsewhere but don't register that they're spending around £200 a year more by shopping at Tescos.

Ever heard of false economy?
#22
So when i'm off to London the weekend before christmas, staying in a Travelodge hotel which has cost me £36 for 2 rooms for 2 nights, Visiting places like the tower of London and going on the tour bus etc Eating in Planet H for a family of 4 (normally costs about £130) mainly due to clubcard vouchers (not just gained through shopping at tesco i.e. E on and sending in printer cartridges that we get through at work) If i have to spend around £200 extra a year to get these savings on a faily visit then i love the false economy. My saving on my RAC membership for me and the mrs is almost that alone. Clubcard pointss are great (IF used right). But hey thats just my FREE opinion

Well not everyone has the luxury of using their old corporate supplies against their own personal supermarket accounts!


Edit: How much did you have to spend to enjoy all this stuff? Don't you get 1 point per pound spent? Isn't it 3.4p per point for days out etc? Therefore on a £100 spend you've actually accrued £3.40 worth of 'enjoyment'. My £200 a year was based on saving £3.80 on a £50 a week family shop at ASDA as opposed to Tesco.

The question is, would you have done all those things if you didn't have the vouchers? Probably not. Therefore what have you actually saved? Are you the type of person that buys things regardless if they're needed, just because it's a good price? A bargain is only a bargain if you were going to do it anyway. Judging by your spending habits, maybe you should vote for a hike in income tax in exchange for holiday vouchers as you would see it to be excellent value for money.
#24
Still more expensive than others even with 5p off when Tescos petrol is currently £106.9 per litre.
#25
Hot from me.
Spent £80 at Morrisons last night, but found out that my local Morrisons aren't doing fuel vouchers. :x
Filled up this morning at Morrisons anyway at 99.9p. :)

However, as OP said, I can see Tesco following suit on the prices in the next few days and IF they do, the 5p voucher would make it more attractive than the Morrisons offer. Lets wait and see.
#26
Thanks for this but my Tesco's is 5 miles away and its 104.9, my nearest morrisons is 1 mile away and 99.9.

(I know i get clubcard points)

I think this is blaint profiteering by Tesco.

EDIT: Oops i should read the whole post. Hmm Similar to the Morrisons spend over £40 save 5p scheme

But this is not at every Morrisons it seems. ;-)

I'm voting hot as Asda and Morrisons are both around 20 miles fom my house.Tesco is about 4 miles so we go there anyway.

I always thought and was told that Tesco's are supposed to price match the nearest petrol station if it was cheaper.Maybe they've changed it i don't know.Something like within 1 mile in London and 3 miles elsewhere?

They don't price match, in Glasgow Tesco always has the dearer fuel. Morrisons appear to be the first to cut fuel prices up here, followed closely by Asda.

Whenever there is a 5pence off per litre promotion by Tesco, pound to a penny they will have the dearer fuel by at least 3 pence. Thus making your 5p off a litre only worth 2pence.
#31
The Tesco near me sells at the same price as the Morrisons across the road. Or at least it was last time I drove past a couple of days ago (they were both £101.9 then)
#32
voted cold

because i can get my petrol for same price @ asda without a minimum spend

My nearest Morrisons is 25 miles away, my nearest Asda is 20 miles away, my nearest Tesco is on my doorstep. Given the fact that an average car costs about 15p per mile it costs £6 to drive to Asda or £7.50 to get to Morrisons it doesn' t make sense to shop elsewhere for a £50 weekly shop.

I think most people know that Tesco aren't the cheapest but for some people it's the only real option. It would be nice if people like Xb0xGuru didn't insult people by talking about it being "False Economy" shopping at Tesco and how it would cost £200 a year more to shop at Tesco. Shopping at Asda would cost me £320 a year to get there, 2000 additional miles on my car and an bigger carbon footprint.

I have to disagree on this one, although I'm first to admit that Asda are generally cheaper than Tesco. However by (albeit cunningly) saving my Tesco points for two years I am getting £2,100 off my holiday next year and I can't see that I would have saved that amount of money just by shopping at Asda:whistling:.

Yes, I am spending all my money at Tesco, get my petrol there and take advantage of their extra point offers, but only if I plan to buy the stuff they offer anyway. To some extent I admit they have sucked me in sticking with them, but hey I love my holidays:roll: Just my opinion though, but I'm sure there's thousands more like me.

Gosh, a lot of hate for Tesco, eh? Well, opinions are just that really.

But when £1 out of every £60 spent in Britain is spent in a Tesco store (similar statistic to this iirc), you can't for one minute think that millions of people are being 'duped' into false economy and 'scams', can you?

I go to Tesco for a few reasons. Mainly, because their food is always stocked better and fresher than my local ASDA (which is actually closer). Also, I find ASDA and Morrisons stores to be physically grubby when I go in there. I might add too, that along with regular Club Card vouchers, I almost *always* receive an additional "£5 off when you spend £30 in store or online" voucher.

Yes, I think some of the ethics Tesco has had in the past has given the company a bit of a stigma, but companies grow so large for a reason. That reason is happy customers ... you can't argue with that. Had ASDA not been purchased by Wal*Mart, you can bet your bottom dollar that Morrisons and Sainsbury's would have both gained a lot more ground in the groceries market to date, not to mention Tesco would have too (but probably been investigated by the monopolies commission).

However, with fuel prices as they are, I can understand why people will go further to get cheaper petrol. Like people who coast in newer cars, this too can be a 'false economy' (coasting/neutral uses more petrol than taking your foot off the gas in newer vehicles - fact - even though negligible amounts), as you spend an average of 12-15 pence per mile travelling to and from the said petrol station. Say it's 4 miles further - it's cost you up to £1.20 ... to make a (50 litre tank?) £2.50 (50 litres x 5p) saving. Then you have to factor in the time it takes to go further ... time is money and all that, eh?

We also have to bear in mind that Supermarkets buy petrol in bulk (apparently), so there is often a delay in price changes. Perhaps because Morrisons/ASDA have a different cycle in purchasing? Who knows. Just bear in mind that Tesco too have been cheaper than the competition plenty of times before.

And the Club Card scheme ... well, it's been credited as the single biggest factor in Tesco's success in the last 20 years. Only ASDA can compete on a global scale in terms of size and success ... and that's only because they are a subsidiary of a bigger firm.

Been going away for around christmas for at least the last 10yearsso yes i would be doing it anyway

Buying something for the sake of it. Definately not. As a family man doing this i probably would have been out on the street by now if that were the case ...no need for a personal attack.

Dont judge my spending habbits as you know nothing about me.

I do love my holidays, :thumbsup:
#37
My local tesco is £106.9 (local Morrisons is 99.9p)

Think I'll keep going to Morrisons (or even local Shell which is 99.9p!)

Yeah but ASDA is part of Wal-Mart (downright evil!) and the food quality is absolute ****. It is at the same level or lower than Lidl. It is the cheapest for a reason.

Voted Cold Tesco are robbing swines , the morrisons petrol station has shut down for 2 weeks while it gets some sort of makeover , magically the Tesco petrol station 100 yards away has now raised its price from 1.04 to 1.06 not much i agree but now all the morrisons petrol customers have to use the tesco pumps , blatant profiteering , not to mention that at least 90% of the tesco food deals posted on here are never on in that tesco.

I do think it has to be acknowledged that everybody's circumstances are different and insulting people who spend at a different store from you is unfair in many cases. I generally shop at Tesco because it is four minutes' walk away from me (no need for car), while Asda is a 20 mile round trip. I do make some use of their Clubcard scheme, but not because I've been duped by their marketing (although I concede that there will be many out there who don't know how best to use the system) but because a number of the deals on offer suit me and so save me money (again, it is not moneysaving if you weren't planning to use any of the deal options anyway). The 4p/litre I gain from the Clubcard points offsets the difference between Tesco forecourt prices and those of Asda/Morrisons; an additional 5p/litre off represents a good deal to me. That said, there are two Tesco stores within two miles of each other in Lincoln and there is currently a 2p difference between them, so, again, it all depends on people's own circumstance. Use [url]www.petrolprices.com[/url] as a guide, but be aware their prices can be a few days out of date.

I use Fixtureferrets/Madabout Bargains & Lidl/Netto newsletters to identify when I can get my regular purchases cheaper and I walk there [because I can] so I don't offset the saving by spending on additional fuel. I'll stop off at Morrisons or Asda if I'm passing that way anyway, but it's false economy to make a specific car journey there to save a few pennies off the bill.

However, it's obvious that this deal won't be for everybody. I think it's unfair to vote a deal cold just because it doesn't suit me; that would apply to 99.99% of the deals on here, as I have no need for most things posted. I have voted hot because this will work out well for a good number of people. Tesco bashing is all very well if other options suit you better, but for many Tesco can still work out cheaper.

BTW, I also agree that buying things you don't need in order to be eligible for 50p or so off a tank of fuel is also not moneysaving; only make use of this offer if your bill comes to £50+ anyway or if you are stocking up on non-perishable special offers.
