    Thanks for the deal post Ozpete.
    Sounds like a great offer. The 10% off for 3 months gives you a good saving on fuel - every bit helps when it is so expensive :)
    The $50 voucher they send you , does that count towards your BP card balance or does it need to be spent at a BP store - kind of like a gift voucher?

    10% off fuel? Nice indeed. Thanks ozpete, will have to do some maths to see if the $79 costs makes sense.

    you'd need to spend $790 on fuel in 3 months to justify the membership fee (unless you take into account the $50 voucher) but if I am reading correctly you can get an ongoing 5% discount which would work out well over the course of a year. You'd need to spend $6000 a month to go over the $300 pm limited in rebate, and assuming you can make the max rebate each month the card would get you $3600 back.

    Now I reckon this would be good for couriers or anyone doing large volumes of fuel. Heck - if you really felt inclined you could go fill $9000 worth of jerry cans in the first three month period - take the 10% off and use that fuel for the rest of the year. That'd almost be akin to petrol futures ::D:D

    I think it would Jumpingjack, if you consider the high price of fuel. Plus you can get up to $300 rebate a year - 1% of all your purchases on the card.

    I think it is pretty easy to spend $40 a week on fuel if you are driving a bit, saving $4 a week - for 3 months this is about $50. Then you factor the 5% for the rest of the year.
    So $79 yearly fee is not bad. You would need to check the interest rate though

    BTW - nice one ozpete - thanks. Gave you a hot vote for it.
  • nod2007/05/21 19:11:20
    LOL
    you just beat me Admin
  • ozpete2007/05/22 10:31:30
    The $50 is a "prepaid" fuel card, so it can be used at any BP outlet.

    Positive is that it can be used by anyone - son, daughter.
    Negative is that it doesn't give you 10% off per litre (So if you use it, its probably a net $45 value).

    Sorry to be a spoil sport, but it's not true. The $300pm relates to BP purchases so you will get $30pm back maximum for the first 3 months, the 5% back there after. So in 12 months this would equate to

    $90 plus $135 = $225
    Plus 1% of all other purchases to a maximum of $60,000 = $600
    Then $50 back with prepaid card

    So theoretical maximum equals $875 for a $79 annual fee.

    A hefty savings BUT not $3600 a year

    Compared to the 4c voucher you save the hassle of having to remember the voucher and to use it before it expires. And you can use the card for any car at anytime, only limit is the $300 spend per month. Vouchers can only be used for 1 car/1 can.

    For really big users they can use both the card and a voucher when they go over the $300 limit. You can use the BP card at Shell with a voucher and get 1% back, not as good as the 5% but still better than nothing.

    Anytime :D

    I'd misread the 300 as the max rebate per month. 3.6k is too good to be true really.

    From what you've listed ozpete it sounds like a bit of a hard spent to get to the max levels, but still a good discount.
  • nod2007/05/22 21:41:57
    Ah ok. Thanks for the info Ozpete. Very helpful. $875 for a $79 outlay sounds great. Well worth it. You just need to remember to pay off your card on time :)

    So each 10% or 1% helps us spread the $ further :D

    :D - there's a lot to be said for the psychological powers of retail therapy and even more to be said for the satisfaction of getting it cheaper.

    I just changed the deep link Ozpete as it was showing an error. I linked it to the Citibank page
  • nod2007/05/23 19:40:36
