Sainsbury’s offering 10p off a litre of fuel THIS WEEK ahead of Bank Holiday getaway

SAINSBURYS is offering motorists 10p a litre off fuel before the Bank Holiday.

Drivers can save a few quid on petrol or diesel when they spend at least £60 on groceries in a single transaction in-store.

You'll also get a voucher if you have an online grocery order delivered over the same period.

Ten pence off per litre doesn't sound like a lot but the average driver could save about £5 when re-filling a tank.

Once you've spent more than £60 in stores, you'll be handed a voucher at the till.

To get the deal, you have to do your shopping between Wednesday May 1 and Tuesday May 7.

The voucher will be valid for 14 days from the date of issue.

You can only redeem the vouchers at Sainsbury's-branded forecourts – not at 'pay at the pump' transactions or at 'pay at the pump' stations, MoneySavingExpert reports.
