prices are always something of a talking point in the UK.
The price we have to pay at the pump on petrol is more than
most other countries (over double the price it costs in
America), and with prices never seeming to go down much
it can be quite costly when putting petrol in your car.
The money saving idea for this is one that is actually promoted
by many petrol stations anyway in their attempt to make
you "loyal" to that specific petrol station or
the brand of petrol station e.g. Shell or BP.
What is on offer are cards which you can collect points
when you spend, so for example, every pound you spend on
petrol equals one point. These points could then be exchanged
for either money off a petrol bill once you reach a certain
number ora free gift. Many supermarkets now have their own
petrol stations, and points may be exchanged for money off
your shopping bill, this keeps even more money within the
company and is one way that they retain and keep business
to their stores.
It can also sometimes work the other way round too, such
as when you do your shopping you may be able to get petrol
from the supermarkets own petrol station cheaper, such as
5p off per litre, which if you fill right up can work out
quite a good easy saving.
