2p per litre off fuel using Asda Credit Card

Found 3rd Jul 2008Made hot 4th Jul 2008
As the description says 2p per litre off at Asda when using the Asda credit card, so if your like me and 2p makes a £1.20 difference per fill up, not as good tesco 5p but its on every transaction for fuel.

Not a good APR on the card but the deal is for fuel saving and not the card.

0% p.a. on Balance Transfers for 9 months*
(2.5% fee applies)
0% p.a. on Purchases for 3 months

So assuming a rough price of £1.16 a litre, then its costing you £70 each time you fill up!!!!! OMG, I'm glad I only drive a small car.............

If you can get one, Asda are very picky about new credit card customers!

Weren't with me :-D

I have had an Asda card for about a year now, unfortunately the Asda near us doesn't have a filling station, the nearest is about 7 miles away so we only take advantage of the cheap fuel if we are out that way anyway.

The rewards are good on the card though, you earn the same amount of points for shopping anywhere as you do for shopping in Asda though which is a tad odd, handing over my Asda card in Tesco's feels quite funny :giggle:

Have earnt just over £20 worth of Asda vouchers so far this year just using my card for general day to day stuff, they get sent out in December before Christmas.

You are better off with tesco!

Convert points to deals worth 4p for evey £ spent

LoL Me neither but then I pay my bills:-D

Get an American Express card and pay it off every month. It pays 5% for the first 3 months and 1% after that. If you go through Quidco you also get £40 cashback, that's a lot of fill-ups to get the equivalent with the Asda card. You're right, every penny does count.

Run by GE Capital avoid !
sorry voted cold

I use for as my business card for fuel only, it gives me a per litre saving on every drop and I pay the total bill at the end of each month via DD
The fuel is also the cheapest locally
Worth it!

asda is the cheapest & nearest fuel for me, so i was more than happy when i got the card 3 months ago. makes a small difference, but it all adds up!

Wishful thinking: I read it as 2p per liter of fuel... :oops:

Lol yes OMG, cost me £74.90 last fill up and only have a megane diesel ! Was talking to someone over the weekend with a BMW and was closer to £100 fillup !!

Don't understand why people vote cold on here sometimes as its a good deal and to compare it with other cards is not the issue :-) 2p off a litre is 2p off a litre without having to spend £50 on shopping and adding to Tesco's little pot.

I've had one about 6 months now. It saves me about £1.80 a week on the cost of diesel - which covers most of the annual road tax.

Good point, never thought about it like that :-) my tax is only £35 per year so covered in about 30 weeks for me :-)

I signed up for one of these last week, havnt recieved the card yet, but I was accepted, going to use it for my petrol, every little helps! :thumbsup:

Have you compared how many miles you get from Asda diesel compared to Shell or Esso?

I can get about 50 miles more per tank if I fill up at a big name filling station rather than a supermarket. The last lot of Morrison's diesel I had did 40mpg after that I filled up at Esso and averaged 44mpg.

2p off **** diesel ain't such a good deal.

is it that simple? the reason i ask is my car is over 100 to fill up, so is it as easy as that to get £5 cash back for each tank i buy (then reverting to £1 after the 3 months)

I wish our asda sold petrol went to blackpool 3 weeks ago and it was £114.9 where we are £119.9 so thought would fill up problem is theres is card at the pump only max £70 so had to just hold the pump till it ended at £70.
Most I have got in mine is £95 when it was at £114.9 down here about 84 litres :w00t:

Anyone got the Shell Mastercard that pays 3% (not 3p) on all petrol bought at shell and 1% on all other purchases?

Around me Shell always seem to be cheapest or at least no more than 1or 2p off being the cheapest

Glad i am on LPG.
Don't have to worry about 2p.

a quick google for Shell Mastercard offer and this appears to be a better deal. Based on average Diesel 1.30 per ltr, 3percent is about 5p off, without the need to spend shed loads at the supermarket. There is no time limit on this offer (so far) unlike the Tesco offer.
Again, deopends on your local prices, but round here there no more than 1p per ltr more than chaepest that is other side of town from me.

Cool, I was thinking about going for one as it seems a good deal - especially with the way fuel prices are going. Plus it should help me budget if I buy all m petrol and shopping on it and set up a DD to pay it off in full after pay day I'll know exactly how much cash I've left in the month.

Plus I should get a month "free" of petrol and shopping.

Sadly, I think this is cold.

The problem is that ASDA is encouraging debt for ******-all reward when compared with the massive difference you'd see in just one month's interest on just one fill-up.

Hardly a saving

Erm, I think the point is that you pay the card off each month? :thinking:

signed up for this last week. I know it's not going to save that much over a year really but asda are the cheapest and nearest to us, so why not save a few quid? Great minds seemed to be thinking alike now we all need to watch the pennies a bit more. hot.

Voted cold. Why would anyone want to put low class second rate fuel in there car... that £2 could be spent on a more efficient top rate fuel....

Heat added.

I have this Credit Card and applied for it for the intention of buying Asda petrol, however the petrol served up at my local Asda is garbage, my car doesnt seem to run very well on it, and does considerably less to the gallon. You might want to put a tank of Asda petrol in your car before you apply for this card, to see how good the fuel is.

I have a v6 Vectra it runs great on Asda fuel, always has, like any modern car you have to allow your car to adjust to any change in fuel. Depending on your car this could take a few tank fulls for your engine management to adjust.:thumbsup:

Costs me £75 (petrol, mondeo 2L) when I pay cash!

we applied in march and only received the card last week

i dont know if its a quiker turnaround when applying online

a great deal though if you clear the balance every month

What utter nonsense - using a credit card to make a saving of £0.02 per litre of fuel.

People, the credit crunch is going to get far far worse than it is today and interest rates are going to rise at the end of the summer - you don't need another credit card!

Since acquiring this card in order to save 2pence per litre (I will pay it off every month) -

I have not received their correspondence by post, which made me late on the first payment and had to call them up to sort it all out.

I have received call after call from w****rs on the phone trying to sell me stuff. As I have been on the Telephone Preference Service and really quiet and peaceful on this front - it came as a very annoying shock. Had to be the Asda card causing this or a very amazing coincidence.

I have got back to Asda to be taken off their 'promotions list' and advised them of the rogue numbers.

All to save a quid every week. Every penny counts? Depends on your priorities - I would not have acquired the card if I had read comments like mine above.

It always make me chuckle that people go on about supermarket fuel being substandard despite the fact that they can go and stand outside a distributer and watch all the different branded tankers filling from the same rig. If you use fuel with a different RON then maybe but most people with normal cars will never see any difference. Asda is the nearest fill to me and I've had the card for ages. It has never caused a problem, my mpg is spot on what I'd expect and I've had no cold calls ever from it. I'm not so stupid as to not pay it off every month (by direct debit) so it is a no-brainer. seeing as I generally
filled up there anyway so it is money for nothing. As someone said earlier it will pay my tax over the year. If you can get a 5% cashback deal on a credit card though, that trumps the saving easily so do that in preference.

If you can't manage a credit card FFS don't have a credit card!

Credit Crunch! WE'RE ALL DOOMED! LOL!

Yeah. That may be the point. Just you wait until you miss a payment though. I'm all very well aware of the tarting practices, stoozing and so on. It only works when you're all on the ball.

The problem is that it's encouraging debt - pure and simple. In an increasingly difficult economic environment, there's a greater and greater risk that you'll not be able to pay the bill at the end of the month, especially as people are readily saying that it's costing £80 + to fill the tank. Well, a few £80 + fill-ups a month when it's not immediately coming out of your pocket may easily become a few more £80+ fill-ups and suddenly there's a £320 bill that you haven't budgeted for.

You can knock me down if you like, but there are many, many people out there that will be caught by this. It should not be encouraged.

ASDA CREDIT CARD
(£0.02/£1.20)x100 = 1.67% cashback

SHELL CARD
3% cashback

TESCO CLUBCARD PLUS
£100 on fuel = 100pts normal Clubcard pts + 100 Clubcard Plus pts = 200pts = £2 if spend Tesco = £8 spend on deals
£8/£100 = 8% Cashback

Asda credit card sounds good, but unfortunately only slightly better than a 1% cashback cards
