3c here ($2.019 to $2.049)


Yeah thought it was 202 for some reason. Unless it was a split increase which has been done before

We've just had Waitomo petrol open an unmanned petrol station here in Palmy. Yesterday it was about 7 cents a litre cheaper than Caltex up the road. These guys are planning to open more of these stations.

The new Waitomo has been (I'm pretty sure) six cents cheaper than the Rangitikei/Tremaine Mobil and Rangitikei BP ever since it opened last week (I walk past all three every morning). A 6c differential gets fully eaten up by the ubiquitous 6c Mobil discount voucher. Interestingly, the bigger difference is with diesel, where Waitomo is 10c a litre cheaper (good for me given I have a diesel car!) at $1 a litre.

 

Speaking of Waitomo - what's the verdict on the origin/quality of its fuel? There have been a fair share of posts questioning the quality of Gull fuel (eg addition of ethanol), but I've not heard if there are any differences with Waitomo-sourced fuel (diesel or petrol).

No price rise in Palmy or Bulls, but we did get the AA 10c deal yesterday (BP) and today (Caltex). :) But then there's Waitomo at both places. Interestingly, Waitomo's price in Bulls went up (177.9)

Sbiddle will love this one..

 

 

 

(prob better in the older petrol discounts thread really..)

 

This is south island Pak N Save stores, to be rolled in the NI if successful. So much for the breakups and docket beakdowns.

 

“We also know that 43 percent of shoppers say fuel discount schemes are important to them, and 21 percent say fuel discount schemes influence their choice of supermarket.

 

“Sticky Club is a special programme that allows PAK’nSAVE customers to collect fuel savings each month just by shopping at PAK’nSAVE and scanning their Sticky Club tag at the checkout,” Donaldson says. “This is a new offering, separate to our other fuel deals in-store. 

“Sticky Club members earn fuel savings each time they visit over the course of a month. Every $20 you spend earns you 1 cent off on each litre of fuel. 

“Turn your savings into a fuel voucher, up to a maximum of 35 cents per litre, before the end of the month and print your voucher at the check-out or one of our special Sticky Club kiosks in-store. Once printed, your voucher is good for either 10 days at our on-site fuel stations or a whole month at any participating Mobil service station.

 

So spend $700 a calendar month, get 35c off. Vs 4x $100 weekly for 24c (smatfuel)

You get instant 6c off vouchers at Pak 'n Save and NW stores in the Wellington region with their own fuel with no minimum spend to get the voucher and no minimum spend to redeem the voucher.  Such a deal would be incredibly poor value if introduced up here.

That snippet is missing a few key details. 

 

There are certain products each week that if purchased may get you addtional CPL off.  e.g.  Acme Co Lipstick $2.00 RRP and comes with 4CPL off fuel, in the same shop you spent $20 on Rice, so in theory you get 5 cents off in this transaction.

Likewise here, those still stand for 'general' shoppers. But you have to of course sign up to their mailing list and 'big brother is tracking your purchases' to get the whole deal. It outlines it differs /excludes from those in-store or docket vouchers

Essentially foodstuffs answer to Smartfuel with the same bonus enticements countdown does etc it seems. Guess they felt left out.

Within hours of the increase the email went out for an extra special 8c AA Smartfuel deal tomorrow at BP. BP went up mid morning in Wellington.

I wish they'd increase a bit faster.

 

At the moment I'm buying 98 to make sure I'm paying the most possible, plus I empty a few litres into the bin attached to the pump when they're not looking, but I'm still not really happy with how low the price is.  The sooner it gets up to $3.00 a litre the better I say.

 

Fingers crossed.

You need to get a AA Smart card and then you can go "Yes, Yes"  all the time like that idiot on the TV ads when you fill up .  money-mouth
