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
