- £5 off fuel with TopCashback – claim here
Fuel prices have dropped in recent moths from record highs over the summer which is good news for motorists budgets.
Last week it was revealed that Asda slashed 5.5p a litre across its 320 forecourts.
But getting a discount on your car costs could ease the pressure elsewhere, as the price of other essentials like food are still rising.
Motorists looking to save a fiver will need to be quick though – you have until December 22 to take advantage of this cashback deal.
It is only available to new members at Topcashback, so you won’t be able to claim the deal if you already have an account.
To sign up, you just need to enter your email address and create a password – you must sign up through this deal page to be eligible.
To get the money off, you’ll need to go and spend £10 or more on unleaded or super unleaded petrol or diesel at a participating petrol station.
Here is the full list of petrol stations the deal is available at:
Keep your receipt – that’s the important bit. You’ll need to take a picture of the receipt which clearly shows the date, the name of the fuel station, the receipt number, and the name of the item you’ve purchased.
Next, login to TopCashback and upload a photo of your receipt.
Only receipts from December 15 will be eligible for the deal, and you’ll need to upload the picture before midnight on December 22, 2022.
You can’t get the deal through the app either – you’ll need to do it through the desktop or mobile site.
You can also only redeem the offer once – and the deal could be withdrawn early if the limit is reached, so it’s better to take advantage sooner than later.
Once approved, the cash should arrive in your TopCashback account within seven days.
How to use cashback sites
Cashback websites give you money back when you spend online. Quidco and TopCashback are two of the most popular sites.
They often give new users special welcome discounts on top of the usual offers too.
Sign up and shop through them and you can build up cashback through your account with them.
How much cashback you get will depend on the offer from each shop or service, and how much you spend.
Make sure to read the details first so you know when you can expect to get the cashback, and any other requirements.
If you’re using a cashback site then it’s worth checking the details so you’re not disappointed later.
Don’t forget you must make the purchase via the cashback site, rather than direct, or you could miss the money.
Some sites like TopCashback will also let you upload your receipts from shopping in real life so you can get cashback on this spending too.
Often you can stack other deals with cashback if the retailer is offering a sale or other discount at the same time.
Once you’ve earned your cashback you can “cash out” by moving the money to your bank account, but you may have to wait to do this depending on the deal.
It’s still always worth checking to see if it’s the best deal out there and if you didn’t intend to buy it anyway, it’s not really a saving.
We spoke to one woman who’s made £4k just by doing surveys in her spare time – here’s how you can do it too.
How to save on petrol costs
This cashback offer isn’t the only way to save money when filling up a the forecourt.
Checking petrol prices is the easiest way to cut your fuel costs – sites such as petrolprices.com let you search by postcode to find the cheapest in your area.
Checking local social media groups is one way to track down bargain fuel prices too, according to Luke Bosdet, an expert at The AA.
Loyalty schemes could save you cash – some could shave up to 5p a litre off the cost.
Drivers with a BPme rewards card get one point for every £1 they spend in store or on a litre of regular fuel at a BP garage.
Esso has partnered with Nectar for its loyalty scheme and you can get 5p off a litre when you swap 300 Nectar points.
Motorists can sign up to Shell Go to get money off at the operator’s forecourts.
Texaco members can save 1p per litre of fuel with its Star Rewards scheme.
Plus Tesco and Sainsbury’s give loyalty points when filling up through their respective reward schemes – Clubcard and Nectar.
Changing your driving style can help make your fuel go further too.

Braking and accelerating sharply will use more fuel, as will speeding and blasting the air-con.
Check your tyres are at the correct pressure and don’t be suckered into buying the premium fuel at the forecourt – most cars don’t need it.
