Sainsbury’s launches Christmas fuel discount – here’s how to qualify

Sainsbury’s is offering its customers a little early Christmas cheer with the return of its money off fuel offer.

Two months after it last ran the promotion, the supermarket is once again giving shoppers 10p per litre off the cost of filling their car over the festive period.

From this Thursday (December 12) until Friday December 20, customers will be able to claim a discount coupon entitling them to the discount on petrol, diesel or LPG at 307 of its filling stations.

To qualify for the saving, you need to spend at least £60 in one of the chain’s supermarkets or on online groceries. You will then be issued with a voucher which is valid for 14 days.

David Pegg, buying manager at Sainsbury’s, said: “To help customers celebrate the festive season we’re offering them 10p per litre off fuel when they spend £60 or more on groceries at a Sainsbury’s supermarket or online, between 12 and 20 December. We hope this offer will help put money back in customers’ pockets when they’re doing their Christmas shopping.”

The voucher is valid at 307 Sainsbury’s filling stations around the country. It can be redeemed against the purchase of unleaded petrol, super unleaded petrol, diesel or LPG up to a maximum of 100 litres.

However, you can only redeem the voucher at staffed filling stations, meaning you won’t be able to get the discount at its Pay@Pump-only forecourts Hazel Grove, Hawick, Whitehouse Farm, Livingston, Dartmouth, Ely, Sudbury and Faversham.

Conditions

Under Sainsbury’s rules, you are only entitled to one voucher per in-store or online transaction, so spending £120 won’t get you two coupons.

You can only use one coupon per transaction and for one vehicle so you can’t get 20p off a litre by doubling up and you can’t fill two cars at the same time.

You also won’t get a voucher for purchases made at “Central” or “Local” stores and certain products won’t count towards your £60 spend.

These include spend spirits and liqueurs, fuel, first stage baby milk products, National Lottery, tobacco, gift vouchers, gift cards, prescription medicines, over the counter medicines, postage stamps, savings stamps, mobile phone vouchers, travel money, phonecards, e-topup, PayPoint payments, charity products, carrier bags, cafe transactions and car park tickets.
