Morrisons has just launched the UK’s first ever Fuel Saver scheme which will help shoppers slash their petrol and diesel bills. It is a new way of paying for items from across the high street which gives us customers much needed savings at the pump.Over in the US similar schemes have proved rather popular and now Morrisons has joined up with 34 of the nation’s favourite high street brands (listed below the video) to bring Fuel Saver to the UK.
What you can save:
The typical saving using Fuel Saver is 6% for customers filling up a 60 litre car, for example:
- Purchasing a bottle of fragrance from Boots for £30 leads to 3p-a-litre off fuel. On a typical 60-litre fill-up that’s a saving of £1.80 off the purchase price.
- The purchase of a £500 oven from Homebase will lead to 50p-a-litre off fuel. On a typical 60-litre fill-up that’s a saving of £30 or 6% of the purchase price
This new way of paying for products will enable families and individuals to save much more than other payment methods. Leading credit cards pay a maximum of 1.25% cashback on purchases. In fact, customers can use their credit card to pay for their Fuel Saver gift cards and make an even bigger saving.
The fuel saver works by families using gift cards bought in Morrisons to pay for purchases on the high street. See the video below for more on this scheme.
Who is participating?
There will be 34 retailers taking part in the scheme including: Currys PC World, Itunes, Homebase, Next, Burton, Dorothy Perkins, BHS, Evans, Miss Selfridge, Topshop, Wallis, Outfit, Toys R Us, Debenhams, House of Fraser, Pizza Express, Halfords, Accessorise, Monsoon, Bella Italia, Café Rouge, Cineworld, Boots, New Look, JD Sports, H Samuel, Zizzi, Facebook, Spotify, Club Penguin, Spa Finder, Toni & Guy, Hotel Voucher Shop, National Book Tokens. Fuel Saver is a permanent scheme and begins on September 3rd.
Fuel Saver can be a great way for families and individuals looking to find a way of reducing high fuel prices. We as a family are always trying to find new frugal ways of living, so something like this Morrisons Fuel Saver scheme is right down our street. Plus we use both Morrisons for our food shopping, petrol and we shop at many of the participating shops listed.
We would either be clever about using the gift cards and use them as Christmas gifts for family and friends or use them to treat ourselves whilst benefiting from saving money on petrol at the same time.
How would you use the Fuel Saver scheme to save money on petrol?
