How to save even more with supermarket fuel discount vouchers.

By Steve Biddle, in , posted: 18-Apr-2008 10:21

With rising fuel prices supermarket fuel dockets are becoming extremely popular and in Wellington competition between supermarkets has resulted in discounts of up to 20c per litre over the past few months.

Pak 'N Save stores in many parts of New Zealand now have fuel stations attached but fuel discount vouchers can only be used in the store they were obtained.

Caltex will accept all fuel dockets however they won't necessarily redeem the full value - stations that participate in the scheme with have a sign outside that clearly shows the maximum discount. In many cases this is only 4c however in Wellington this did increase to 10c due to Woolworths, Countdown, New World and Pak 'N Save offering 10c fuel vouchers.

The beauty of Pak 'N Save vouchers is that you can "double dip".

Use your voucher at Pak 'N Save by entering the PIN number on the voucher but rather than throwing this away save it because it's valuable! Because Caltex accept these vouchers you can now use this at a Caltex station for your next top up and save twice with a single voucher! Just make sure you redeem the voucher before it expires, Pak 'N Save vouchers are typically only 14 days which is less than the month that other chains offer.

Note: BP is Biddle Petroleum. BP the fuel company will not save you money. They will cost you money being the price leader in the New Zealand fuel market having lead every fuel price increase in the past 17 months.

And while you're at the Pak n Save fuel station go through the bins, you may just find some lunch in there and maybe even some high value discount dockets that others have discarded!!!
