Sorry if it has been posted before-new to this. Just sharing my experiences. If you do your shopping online and buy only Bogoffs' & Multibuys as I do it gives you a projected total for your shopping. So if you total is over £50 but includes loads of Bogoffs' etc your actual total is lower but they still give you the fuel voucher. For example since the fuel offer has been on I have done 2 shops both for £60 actual cost was £35 and still got voucher. Everytime the fuel offer is on I have done this and have 100% success. Every little helps!!

Then you take into account the delivery charge and the fact you have to actually visit a Tesco store to get your petrol. Sort of takes the edge off it tbh.
#2
It is a good tip, especially when using the various money-off vouchers that float around. I have been doing this myself - but never thought about posting it as a deal. Heat & rep added
#3
In my experience it depends on the store and the person doing it .... I've had occasions when you dont get a voucher because the on the day amount is lower (Colchester Branch)

Absolutely true :thumbsup: tbh this isn't really a deal. Everytime Tesco run the petrol promotion this happens but sometimes you'll get the voucher and sometimes you won't. It's pot luck and depends on who does your invoice and whether they notice or not - it's certainly not something you can 'bank' on. Also i've read over on another forum recently that the same thing is starting to happen with money off vouchers and BOGOF's as it works in the same way. Tesco in my experience have always accepted the vouchers even though with the offers your bill is under the min. spend required. However there seems to be quite a few people recently saying that the vouchers are being accepted at checkout and when their shopping is delivered Tesco have refused to accept the money off voucher as the min. spend has not been met.

I have never paid a delivery charge for my grocery delivery from Tesco (or Asda) as there is always a voucher floating around that covers at least the delivery charge and sometimes a few quid more.

When I fill up it tends to be at a time when I don't want to (or don't have time to) go grocery shopping. I pass by a couple of Tesco stores on my route to work so it's not really any hassle to go in just to fill up.

Having experimented with this a little, I have found that so long as your total spend online is over the threshold for the voucher, then the voucher applies and is automatically used.
Bear in mind that the online total does not take into account any BOGOF's as they are only calculated and deducted at checkout time, so if that brings your total below the threshold it makes no difference, the voucher is still applied.

That is exactly what happened to me on yesterdays delivery so it is current information..........

Yup, that is exactly what I mean it has always worked for me too - and I've done countless online shops with them without a problem using a voucher in that way :thumbsup:. I was pointing that for the last 2/3 weeks there have been quite a few people on other forums starting to experience the problem that I was refering too. And with regard to the petrol voucher you definately cannot rely on getting the voucher if your BOGOF's take you under the min. spend. You just need to see it as a bonus if you do :).

if you walk save more fuel, if far away get a bus.

Not really, I have five stations within a mile or so. All at 115.9p except for Tesco at a penny more. So, overall a saving of 4p per litre - about £2 a tank or thereabouts.
#13
I'm sorry, but Tesco's prices have gone up by 22% - more than any other supermarket. They should be giving you a free tank of petrol a month just to say thank you for shopping with them.
Just a thought..................

Thanks for the helpful tip, I'll remember that when we do our weeks shopping for four. But then maybe I'll remember that I have a desk full of work to do when I'm through shopping and wind up chucking everything into the back of the SUV as usual.

i wouldnt this time last year i was paying 93p per litre of desisl now i pay close to 132p
#20
I've never received a petrol voucher (or school voucher) when shopping with Tesco online. Been on about it before now and got the reply...well then your local store must have run out of vouchers, nothing we can do about that.

I saw on the news the other day that M&S sales are down by about this figure and oddly enough they're prices are approx 20-25% higher than other shops :lol:

Edit: My mistake. M&S share prices were reported down 25% and.. oh sod it story here :lol:

Or if you don't want to spend ANYTHING to get the voucher.

go into the store, buy an item for £50+ in the electrical department, get the 5p petrol voucher. then take the item straight back for a refund and say you have changed your mind

1 Free petrol voucher :whistling:

So you go out of your way to buy a load of BOGOF toss you wouldn't otherwise by to save 5p off a £1.20 litre of fuel... Tescos must love you!
#25
Do what I did. Get yourself an oldish diesel motor and run it on veggie! Under 90p a litre! Beats being a mug and paying 40p + a litre more! :thumbsup:
#26
Or easier still, look on the floor outside the store or in the trolley that someones put back. In 2 minutes I picked up a 5p off petrol voucher, a 25 points off vitalite and an 80 points off foxs biscuits voucher! I used the biscuit one straight away for a pack of biccies costing 66p (no brainer profit there!)

In this day and age, it's pretty hard not to spend £50 on a weekly shop... *sob sob*

I'll take my car thanks until the great global warming tax scam is exposed and the eco fundamentalists go back to living in caves and leave us normal folk alone:p

Its got nothing to do with who is on the till as the machine automaticaly prints off the voucher with the receipt
#31
Every little helps .. with little being the operative word!!

5p off is pathetic. I have a 70 litre petrol take so this would only knock £3.50 off my bill if I was running on fumes!!

That is if Tesco actually had their petrol at the same price as other stores - around me it's 1-2p more expensive; so works out around £2 ... big wow's (and I have to pay £50 for the privilege!! no thanks)

5p off a litre is excellent considering the margins petrol retailers have on a litre of fuel.
#34
Good bit of advice which I was not aware of.....Thanks
#35
I'd agree that they raise petrol prices before 5p promo. Both this time and last time when promo started they went from cheapest in town to 3p more expensive than the rest.

Here here. Easiest way any government in living memory has had to raise revenue all in the name of 'Saving the Planet'. Yet another example of Rip-off Britain. Has nobody questioned just how much 'Global Warming' we in the UK are preventing by paying 50% more for our fuel when ever-so-slightly larger countries like China stick 2 fingers up to Global Warming and prefer to choke to death on the pollution they are pumping into the atmosphere? Every little helps...the Treasury.

Unless you;

a) find a discount voucher online that pays for your delivery like I do, and :thumbsup:
b) fill up when you're passing Tesco instead of making a special trip like I do. :thumbsup:

Then it's a damn good deal. :-D
#40
So, my car can take about 60 litres of fuel and it's just far too much hassle to save £3.00 per tank of fuel. Not even taking into account that I'd have to shop at Tescopoly.

Thid deal couldn't be any colder for me.
