First fuel discount helps seniors across NSW fill up for less
NSW Seniors Card and Senior Savers Card members across the state can now save 4 cents per litre on every fuel purchase at participating United service stations, using a digital or physical fuel discount card.
Minister for Seniors Jodie Harrison said cost of living can be a challenge for older people and every dollar counts.
“This brand new discount has been added to the wealth of Seniors Card savings to help keep more money in seniors’ pockets and ease price pressure at the pump,” Minister Harrison said.
“We want our Seniors Card and Senior Savers Card holders to get the best possible benefits, discounts, and special offers, and we’re excited to launch the program’s first fuel discount with United Petroleum, an Australian-owned business offering discounts to members at the bowser.”
Head of Loyalty at United Petroleum Judith Russell said Seniors Card and Senior Savers Card members simply need to sign up for a United digital or plastic fuel discount card online to save 4 cents per litre.
“Members then need to show and scan this United fuel discount card at the time of purchase at participating United service stations to save the 4 cents per litre,” Ms Russell said.
“The discount can be used once a day for a purchase to a maximum of 150L in a single transaction.”
If seniors choose a digital card, this can be used straight away, while the plastic card will be delivered within 5 to 15 business days.
