No. I refuse to. When you drive around and look at the prices, the advertised price of petrol per litre is always 4 cents higher that the independent operators like Liberty. Why keep scrap paper in my purse, when I can support the independents without spending more. Also, I would prefer to avoid the giant supermarkets and use a smaller one like IGA.
Well.... maybe! I live in a different country don't forget, where the situation seems quite different - there are no small operators when it comes to buying petrol or diesel, only large ones and the supermarket prices are competitive. Food prices in the supermarket are not higher to compensate for the fuel savings - the fuel discount is a loss leader whereby the supermarket takes a hit on their fuel profit margin to get more people into their shops which increases volume of sales which in turn will lead to increased profits and an ability to negotiate better buying terms with their suppliers, which also improves profit margins but doesn't impact on customers.
If you really think the food prices are higher or the non-discounted fuel price is artificially high to offset the discount, then it makes sense not to use the discount but equally it makes no sense to carry on shopping at the supermarket, as then you are paying a higher price for your groceries but not benefitting from the lower price of the fuel..........
My petrol literage goes to my Qantas FF points! Not interested in the small amount of $2.40 'saving' for 60 Litres. Get 120 points instead! As petrol is a 'compulsory' buy, like groceries, I prefer points & they soon mount up!
no, .... the only reason for me to walk into either of the 'big 2' is to buy dog/cat food on special for my daughter's animals.
I have the most wonderful Foodland s/marker here in SA, and I buy my veg.from local business, and although I rarely buy meat, I would never buy it from s/markets.
No, Aldi don't have them. We can find cheaper petrol anyway closer to our home. We relised those petrol vouchers were a ripoff! Do they still have them out there? I noticed the 1 used in the above photo, is from '14, & it's now July '16.
I used to until I realised the independent service station on the highway near me was far cheaper (sometimes 12 cents or more cheaper) so I rather support them and it's always cheaper no matter how much the discount is with the vouchers.
Nope. It's a load of old hokum . . . Multinationals trying to make people think they are getting some kind of *fantastic* discount. The saving is a pittance; the queues are ridiculous; and who needs dockets coming out of purses, handbags and glove boxes? . . . Not me. When I need petrol, I usually plan to get it on the way to somewhere, not go out of my way to find it and then waste the *fantastic discount*.
