Allstar launches supermarket fuel card

Allstar has launched the ‘Supermarket Fuel Card’, which is accepted by the four main supermarket brands Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Asda.

The card aims to offer businesses control over spending at low cost supermarket sites.

The Supermarket Fuel Card comes with in-built fuel management tools that enable the monitoring of driver’s purchasing behaviour, report on ad hoc fuel usage and create a single consolidated HMRC approved invoices.

Allstar says customers will also benefit from supermarket loyalty points.

“We have invested significantly in our platform, as well as confirming our strategic partnership with Visa to deliver Chip and Pin fuel cards with HMRC reporting,” said Paul Baker, head of Networks at Allstar. 

“Supermarkets offer everyday low prices for petrol, delivering huge savings in one of the most costly spending areas for many organisations.  This easy to use card enables drivers to buy fuel and oil at the best possible price.”

    "Supermarkets offer everyday low prices for petrol," says Allstar.

    Actually, only Asda promise 'everyday low prices for petrol. Sainsbury's suggest you 'try something new today'. Presumably that doesn't include putting petrol in your diesel car. Tesco reckon that 'every little helps' and Morrison's offer 'more of what matters', either of which could be an incitement to keep a jerrycan in the boot for topping up one's partner's car.

    Every one of us subsidises these virtually margin-free fuel prices every time we shop in a supermarket, which may explain why Waitrose - 'Good food. Honestly priced' - doesn't accept the new Supermarket Fuel Card.

    I think the offer is brilliant apart from the telephone srevice. Waiting time is about 20mins

    Supermarkets may offer lower prices than most forecourts, but if Allstar adds on their admin charge of £2.40 for every transaction - hey savings gone through the window and exhaust.

    It looks like there is a £24 annual card fee and the supermarkets only cover 1100 forecourts. Does it also come with the £2 transaction fee?

    We have been using All Star for sometime, their online tool is useless, not user firendly, unable to do manu reports, and more importantly getting in touch with All Star is like getting hold of god. our experience has been very bad over last year, it takes ages to get aresponse on any type if issue from them. so, not too sure what improvemnet has been made on the online platform, because clearly as a current customer, we see no benefit from it.

    We used to be with Allstar but decided a commercial price was more attractive it beats the supermarket prices as well.
