Whilst looking for a new cashback credit card I came across the AA Fuelsave Credit card.

It offers the following:
4% cashback on fuel of you spend over £500 per month (2% if not)
0.5% cashback on all other purchases

It also has free breakdown cover for the first year or a Free MOT.
+ £40 TCB £38.50 Quidco

The only issue I can see is after year on there is a £42 annual fee.
This is waived in the first year. So I suggest cancelling after your 1st year.

Just another thought that should work is getting the equivalent of 4% cashback at other shops via gift-cards purchased in petrol stations.
For example Esso petrol stations that have a Tesco express have a number of gift cards. So if you purchased a tesco gift card in the Esso (Tesco express) Petrol station you would receive 4% cashback then you are able to spend on this card in Tesco.
Also Morrisons Petrol stations sell gift-cards including Amazon therefore allowing you to get 4% cashback at Amazon.

Obviously this only works if you spend over £500 on the card each month.
To maximize the offer I would suggest purchasing your fuel as normal then topping up the rest upto £500 or over with gift cards. Then spending those cards in places such as Tesco / Amazon thus giving 4% cashback there.

If you spend under £500 then you only get 2% cashback. But this card could also be used anywhere else for everyday spending as it still has one of the best cashback rates of 0.5% anyway to bring it up to £500 if required.

Maximum cashback of £150 per year

So with the cashback plus the free breakdown cover plus TCB / Quidco it seems like a great deal for a year at least.

Hope it saves someone some money.

AA = Bank of Ireland, rude and extremely ignorant customer service.

"Just another thought that should work is getting the equivalent of 4% cashback at other shops via gift-cards purchased in petrol stations."

Isn't the 4% cashback limited to fuel only, so you'd only get 0.5% cashback (assuming the T&C don't exclude gift card purchases)

Also you get 2% cashback on fuel when you spend less than £500 in a month.

I'm not sure how they would know you purchased a gift card as long as it was purchased in the petrol station. They would just know the type of outlet (Petrol station) plus the amount to charge to your card. A bit similar to Amex deals were the T & C say no gift cards but it still works.

The annual fee kills it.

I have pasted this from my last response to an AA card deal " Please please please people don't use this card. It is okay if you plan to clear the balance over the duration of the interest free period. BUT if you want to transfer the balance from the aa card to another you can't (I couldn't and I tried three different cards; barclaycard, mbna and virgin) they said that it was because AA cards are not fully registered on the system so no way of paying them. I had to get a money transfer card use that to pay off the balance via a current account then balance transfer from the money transfer card. Trust me it was an absolute ball ache! Aa cards are part of RBI btw and the customer service agents are eegits.
