From 7am Thursday 15 December until midday Friday 16 December 2016 we're dropping pump prices by 20 cents off per litre on all fuel grades.
Usual Tip: Remember that Gull takes this discount off their list price, and nearby stations will sometimes match this. This means you may be able to stack the matched price with a further fuel discount, such as supermarket vouchers, the 10c off Caltex has today, or the usual 6c at Mobil and BP.
which stations match?
Would depend on location. Lately some I've seen don't even drop their price when Gull does.
But then you don't get a $5 and $3 off voucher to use next time. These equate to approx 15 cents off per litre which is better than 10/6c off per litre if going to another petrol station.
Just buy 5 dollars worth of fuel at gull, and then fuel up at a competing station.
I actually had one offer the voucher without buying petrol once when I asked for $5. Although the reason I only get $5 is generally because I don't fill up petrol much so it's better to just use the vouchers. Actually I often get 2 since I have 2 Gulls near me, but then only end up using one part of one voucher :-P
This time was a bit different since it was better than the $3/$5 vouchers, and was wondering about the price match. But I since Countdown stopped giving Gull vouchers and moved to AA Smart Fuel I haven't bothered with them (as the Gull $3/$5 are cheaper since I don't shop enough at Countdown to earn much). Although I just remembered I'd actually received a 6c Mobil voucher from Pak'n'save just before filling up. And the Mobil (and BP) did match.
But meh, it was only about $25 (about 90 cent saving I guess) excluding the $5 I likely would have spent at each petrol station. And I prefer to support Gull when I can since I'm only getting the price because of Gull. Plus visiting 3 petrol stations in one day does seem a bit naff :-P
Yea that is true, although I've noticed those aren't always available, plus a decent discount now is probably better then an extra cent or 2 in a months time. In this case the discount was $7, due to 14c off 50L. Worth keeping in mind for future though, thanks for the reminder.
stations around east tamaki in Manukau seem to match. too bad i just filled up the other day.
That is true, but only Caltex on Springs Rd East Tamaki matched Gull's price ($1.599/L 91octane). Combined with AASmartfuel (min. $40 fill) will bring down the price to $1.499/L. BP and Z did not match prices, so they are at a whopping $1.829/L :-O
yeah thats where i normally fill up, can quiet often get petrol in the 1.5x range
The stations that are self serve only don't offer this unfortunately.
Not true. Gull Whenuapai is self service and was 162.9 today.
He was referring to the vouchers mentioned above, not the 20c discount, that is all stations.
I've just been down to Christchurch for two days, flying in and out of Wellington with a good Jetstar deal that my Dad, my sister and I got. Had a good time down there.
Driving back today from Wellington, I heard about this Gull discount. I see in Levin that Gull have got Unleaded 91 priced at $1.557 per litre! Diesel I think was $0.85 per litre. This is a bargain (Shaw ;)). Other retailers appeared to have matched with $1.579/L for Unleaded 91, but I don't think the self-service Allied station have.
No, we didn't fill up as we already had on Tuesday for $1.899/L at the Mobil!
Might be a good time to get some gas Shaw?
Wow nice price, I'm up in Hastings at the moment, so had to settle for $1.629. Luckily got 14c discount at Caltex too, so that makes it basically the same price. Allied rarely change their price, its been lower than the others for a while now, obviously except on these sale days.
I heard Fielding is about $1.60, but can't be sure.
For Unleaded 91 at the Gull it is $1.677/L. I looked on PriceWatch.
Oh yea, almost worth the drive to Levin lol
Just filled up Diesel at 85.7 in Hamilton. I forgot how frothy Gull's fuel is, it's like someone squirted half a bottle of detergent in there. Brimming the tank is very difficult, even when you fill a jerry can in between.
While i can't meet the spend threshold, if you went to the Mobil nearby you'd have got ~83.9 after 6c off and at the Caltex ~82 after 10c off.
For 91 i'm guessing it would have got down into the high 1.50s, but I wasn't paying too much attention to exact figures.
I uses 95, and it is hard for me to see any real savings. I took a punt today and went to caltex, since Gull was like 1km away and caltex 91 displayed prices were $1.619. Nope, 95 was $2.089. Maybe I will pop in Gull before work tomorrow and fill up so I can feel better about myself for saving $2.20
