Here’s what our cardholders say about AA Smartfuel

I Love AA Smartfuel! Has taken me a while to work out how to utilise it the best but have finally got my head around it. Shopping where I can to swipe and I now wait till the end of the next month to use my discount and fill up my car. Being that I use premium it helps A LOT!! I have saved $163.90 in the last year. $60 being my best discount in one transaction so far however, I will have $1.06 [per litre] by the time I fill next week which I expect will save me more. Great idea guys! Thanks for helping the little people :)” – Michaela Dearlove

As a long time AA member I would like the AA to investigate why BP & Caltex are consistently 20c per litre higher than their competitors for 95 Octane fuel since Countdown joined with the AA Smartfuel program.
Petrol Stations do not advertise the price for 95 or 98 Octane on the roadside and only highlight the 91 Octane price which gives the false impression that they are competitive when they are far from it.

The AA have been serving motorists for my entire lifetime but due to their conflict of interest here I feel that I would get a better response going to 3 News or Fair Go.

Why are BP and Caltex's price for 95 Octane consistently 20c per litre higher than Z and other competitors in South Auckland?
Surely this makes the concept of earning 6c per litre discounts at Countdown a complete waste of time?

Z Botany Downs = 192.9c
Z Hunters Corner = 192.9c
Z Ormiston Road = 192.9c
Caltex Highland Park = 210.9c
Caltex Papatoetoe = 210.9c
BP Connect East Tamaki = 212.9c
BP Omiston Road = 212.9c

Maybe it is time for AA Smartfuel to get new partners.

Seriously looking at changing to MOBIL Card. The goal posts keep changing here. We live in a Motorhome and our Tow vehicle takes a lot more than 50 litres. Initially when we could redeem on up to 100 litres it was worth our while supporting the likes of Countdown for our shopping, even tho some of their stores service was seriously lacking. Now with this reduction ? Just don't believe it is worth the effort. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
By going Mobil we can shop where we like and still get fuel discount.

Well it is still disappointing that one card points are useless to people not spending over $100 a week
People living on their own do very well and often need to keep their grocery spend to under $100 a seek. but is seems that Count down is once again only interested in helping big spenders.
For years i realised it was useless to use the one card because it was another card that added no value, if i did not spend the equivalent of $2000 in 6 months. or the equivalent of $333 in a month i cannot get any benefit. The money spend is to high for a person on their own,. hoping that things may have changed with the new onecard system and link up to BP but no. still it is pointless.

"You’ll earn 1 point for every whole $10 you spend in-store or online. Points will expire 6 months after the date of purchase. Once you’ve earned 200 points, we’ll send you a $15 Onecard Voucher to enjoy."

Disappointing again Countdown.

I do high mileage, about 500k per week. My tank takes 60 + litres. When the Smartfuel discount was available for up to 100 litres I saved an average of 25$ per month. Last year I saved just over 300$. Now that it's only up to 50litres I save less. Not by much but the whole point of the Smartfuel discount is that small amounts add up. I vote for a return to a maximum of 100 litres!

my car is a 2 tonne 4.0L V8 with a 90L fuel tank, so I only refill it at a BP or Caltex, on the weekend I topped up from just 2/3 full and it took 41.5 litres of 95 octane and with a $12 car wash this cost $2.20 per litre

can I have 2 cards please?

29 April 2013 | By Melgraham

We usually save $3 per week (more when doing trips/holidays). This becomes our ice-cream fund so when we're out and about it pays for a treat

$21.84 every bit helps

28 April 2013 | By winstonwu

I only saved 6.98 in last year. I am a new AA member. However, I think it much more useful than supermarket vouchers.

Cant find where to enter for the $50.00 fuel prize, so assuming the add comment is part of the entry process??? in the competition period I have saved 44 cents per litre.
