DRIVERS filling up their car tank this weekend should hold on to their receipts to get £10 of fuel completely free.
The freebie is available to new members of cashback website TopCashback until January 5, or until 10,000 deals have been claimed, whichever happens first.
All you need to do to get the free diesel or petrol is to first pay for it yourself, and then show the cashback website your receipt in order to get the £10 cashback.
The deal works at any major petrol station including Asda, BP, Esso, Co-op, Gulf, Jet, Morrisons, Murco, Sainsbury’s, Shell, Tesco and Texaco.
You’ll need to spend at least £10 to get the offer, which is only valid on one tank per customer.
It’s part of TopCashback’s “Snap and Save” offers, which currently also includes £10 cashback on cinema tickets for new members.
How to get £10 off your fuel
- You’ll first need to create a TopCashback account
- Once you’re a member, take a photo of your fuel receipt and upload it here before the offer expires at 11.59pm on January 5
- The receipt has to show the date and time of purchase, the petrol station name and list the fuel
Keep in mind that it can take up to seven days for the cashback to appear in your account as pending.
It can then also take up to 30 days before you can withdraw the money to your bank account, but there’s no minimum payout balance.
Ways to cut down on your fuel costs
HERE are some more tips on how you can slash the cost of fuel.
- Make your car more fuel-efficient. You can do this by keeping your tyres inflated, taking the roof rack off, emptying your car of clutter and turning off your air con when driving at lower speeds.
- Find the cheapest fuel prices. PetrolPrices.com and Confused.com allows you to search prices of UK petrol stations. All you need to do is enter in your postcode and tell it how far you want to travel (up to 20 miles).
- Drive more efficiently. Some ways to do this, include:
- Accelerate gradually without over-revving
- Always drive on the highest possible gear
- If you can, allow your car to slow down naturally as your brake is a money burner
- Re-starting your car is expensive, if you can keep moving
The deal comes as Asda has been crowned the cheapest place to buy petrol as supermarkets beat Shell, Esso and Texaco by up to 10p a litre.
A couple of weeks ago, Asda cut up to 2p off fuel sparking a fresh supermarket pump price war.
