New Sainsbury's fuel deal will give you 10p off every litre when you do a food shop

Sainsbury's shoppers can get a saving on every litre of fuel they buy this week thanks to the grocer's new petrol promotion. Customers can get 10p off every litre they top up when they spend GBP60 in stores over the next few days. The discount means anyone planning a big spend at the grocer will be able to cash in on reduced petrol and diesel.

Sainsbury's told Mirror Money the promotion will run from Wednesday, October 30, to Monday, November 4, - and confirmed that it will include online grocery orders, providing it's one single transaction over the limit. Once you've made the spend, you'll be given a 14-day coupon that can be redeemed at 306 Sainsbury's fuel stations in the UK. However, it won't work at pay at pump machines (these are branches in Hazel Grove, Hawick, Whitehouse Farm, Livingston, Dartmouth, Ely, Sudbury and Faversham) - so remember to redeem it at a filling station with a counter, instead.

The discount can be used to fill up on unleaded petrol, super unleaded petrol, diesel or LPG up to a maximum of 100 litres - plus you'll be able to collect Nectar point on top, at one point per litre purchased. "As we head into the busy festive season we're offering customers 10p per litre off fuel when they spend GBP60 or more on groceries at a Sainsbury's supermarket or online, between 30 October and 4 November," David Pegg, at Sainsbury's, said.

I don't shop at Sainsbury's - how else can I save?

  1. Fill up at busy petrol stations - These stations buy more fuel and can take advantage of falling prices. "The big petrol stations have deliveries every day so they can change the price," Arthur Renshaw, of petrol station analyst Catalist Experian, told The Mirror . "But a small petrol station in a village may have a delivery every couple of weeks."
  2. Choose a big station - Stations buy their fuel on the wholesale market. Just as in any other negotiation, the big buyers are better able to strike a deal.

  3. Look for a cluster of stations - When several stations are close together, they are more likely to cut prices to tempt drivers in. "If you are in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, you have much less competition than in the centre of Manchester," said Renshaw.

  4. Do your research - The website PetrolPrices.com allows you to compare prices in your area.

    It also lists the latest average prices, so you know if you're being ripped off.

  5. Play the supermarket game - Supermarkets are competing on fuel prices along with everything else.

    When you're shopping, keep an eye out for vouchers offering petrol discounts.

    But be aware of the overall cost. "That is one way to get prices down below GBP1, but you do need to buy a lot of food to get that result," PetrolPrices.com owner Peter Zaborszky said.

  6. Stop by provincial towns - Airports, motorways, expensive cities and rural areas have the highest charges, according to PetrolPrices.com analysis. "The golden path is down the middle where rent is cheap," Zaborszky explained.
