At present, fuel prices are rising at their fastest rate in over three years. The culprit is rising global crude oil prices determined by rising demand and concerns about further supply, such as the situations in Venezuela and Iran. Moreover, while these problems seem like a long way away, they have a direct impact on the price we pay at the pumps
The good news is that three brands are running spend and get promotions this May Bank Holiday weekend and next week. Sainsbury’s, BP and Morrisons have got some great money off vouchers to help reduce costs on fuel. With the bank holiday weekend coming up, it all helps towards that perfect staycation or a getaway.
Here are further details to make sure you don’t miss the chance to earn these three great money off spend and get fuel promotions:
Sainsbury’s spend £60 in store and get 10 pence a litre off fuel
Sainsbury’s are offering customers 10 pence a litre off fuel when they spend £60 or more in one transaction either in-store or through their online shopping. The offer runs between the 1st May, and 7th May and vouchers have to be redeemed 14 days after receiving it. If you know you’ve got a big shop coming up and your fuel tank is running low, saving 10 pence per litre could save you £5.50 filing up and average tank of 55 litres.
With the voucher, you get one fuelling of up to 100 litres of petrol, diesel or LPG but you can’t use it at Pay at Pump, so only pay in the kiosk with the voucher. The promotion itself also has a long list of exclusions, so make sure you check beforehand.
Offer ends: 7th May 2019, vouchers must be redeemed within 14 days afterwards
Please be aware there are some exclusions to this offer, so make sure you check them here: https://help.sainsburys.co.uk/help/website/fuel-tcs
BP spend £20 in store and get 10 pence a litre off fuel
While the spend threshold for this offer is lower than the supermarkets, the offer is only valid in BP M&S stores. However, the good news is that M&S has one of the best food ranges in the UK and this is the perfect way to take advantage of getting a great fuel discount at the same time. The promotion can only be done by purchasing in the stores themselves and is not available on BPme, their new payment app.
The offer itself also has some exclusions around fuel cards, tobacco, mobile phone tops ups, baby food, national lottery tickets and stamps; please check beforehand.
Offer ends: 7th May 2019

Morrisons spend £40 in store and 5 pence a litre off fuel
Morrisons has been running the same spend and get promotion in selected stores during April, and now it’s been rolled out across more stores for May Bank Holiday, but there are still some stores not running it, so please check in advance.
When you spend £40 or more in one transaction at Morrisons, you can now get 5 pence per litre off one fuel purchase to the value of £100. There are exclusions to what is accepted in the £40 spend in store, such as tobacco, fireworks and lottery tickets, so please ensure you check before you buy.
Offer ends: 6th May 2019

With any of these, using these savings might not work out for you. If your closest filling station isn’t one of these but their price is better, then work out the savings you’ll make but also the time-saving. It might take longer to visit the station to save not much. You can use our app to compare prices near you and work out what could be the best value for you.

I did wonder why Morrisons petrol was more expensive by approximately 5 p/litre(compared to other local supermarkets) in Blackpool,Crewe,Chester,Queensferry,Stoke-on-Trent,Northwich,Nantwich and Winsford!
I think with all these promotions it is worthwhile if you were planning a big shop. Otherwise using the BP promotion for example you if you get £5.50 off you would have spent £14.50 in order to get that. I already filled my tank last night so I’m out!!
In addition, I noiced about a year a new trick they stated using: increase the shop prices to recover the fuel reduction and in most cases increase the overall profit because it encourages average joe to spend more the reach the threshold!
So with or without the promo, it is a loose loose situation for the consumer!
I noticed that our local Morrisons had put the price of their fuel up last week, now I realise why!
Of course it is. The margin on a litre of petrol is way less than 10p so the 8.5p it actually costs them before VAT is just taken out of a combination of their inflated store margins and their marketing budget.
I think you mean “lose lose”?
Amazing how many people can’t spell!
Our local Tesco has recently had a automated petrol station added to the store car park and diesel only costs £1.27.9 a litre and yet the BP/M&S next door is 12p more a litre. Only problem is the queues.
If you spend 60 pounds at sainsburys you are already 20 worse off than if you shopped at asda so your not saving anything
Yes, please let us know if similar offers come up again.
Hmmm PRICE FIXING ???
Started new job which needs a fill up every week… popped into a local Morrison’s (Leicester) difficult spending £40 and a lot of guess work……. unsure of my trolley total…… just to make sure treated my self to bottle of Whisky ……. I know but worth it to save 2.50 on a full tank
If you live in a large family whereby you usually only do a big shop once a week then you’ll probably easily reach the threshold for the promotion by Sainsbury or Morrison, however if you live along or just your partner then you’ll find it difficult to reach.
Another thing I like to point out is that the voucher can only been redeemed once which means that to take full advantage of this promotion, you’ll need to run your car to almost empty before filling up. This is great for all those drivers that wait until their tank is almost empty before filling up, not so great for those that fill up little and often.
What about Asda and Tesco petrol stations?
Its all one big con. I fill up at Esso at Cressex near where I live. Morrisons petrol was c**p, my mechanic told me water gets into their petrol and that was why I was having problems in starting my car sometimes. Stopped using the Supermarket petrol and have had no more trouble. Would sooner pay the bit extra …
Supermarket fuel = rubbish fuel
It’s identical, comes out of the same storage pot at the refinery, except branded fuel has more additives added at the loading point.
So its not identical! You get what you pay for at the supermarket, no additives, like you said….
The last time I used the BP/M&S I bought the required £20s + worth of goods to qualify only see that I had to spend another £20+ on my next visit to obtain the discount. Buyers beware
The ability to run these promotions shows once again that they are profiteering by using the excuse of modest wholesale price rises to raise forecourt prices by far too much. What is Petrol Prices doing about it please?
It pays to be a member of Costco who offer by far the cheapest fuel of any fuel station all year round. .
Unfortunately, not all Costco warehouses have associated petrol stations. My nearest is Cardiff – a 10-mile round trip; my nearest (with petrol) is Bristol – a mere 88-mile round trip!!
Our local Morrisons is running this promotion just now. The only thing is…………..over the last couple of weeks the fuel price has crept up and up, so now to save 5 pence per litre, which is what the offer is, costs the same as it did previously. It’s yet another marketing ploy to increase the store’s profits. Why are so many things worthless nowadays? I guess it’s the capitalist society that we live in. Robbing the poor to swell the coffers of the rich.
I heard supermarket fuel was inferior to branded as BP, Esso etc put a detergent in the petrol which makes for a cleaner, more efficient engine – thereby giving more MPG. Is this correct?
Always need money off fuel it’s so expensive
There must be a better way so everyone can take advantage of promo’s like this all it does is discriminate the single people who wouldnt spend £30,£40 or £50 in one shop.
