Asked on 06 Jan 2020
Does anybody know if the discount is the same if you pay at the counter than pay at the pump? I believe if you pay at the pump, the discount applied is less. Does anyone know for sure?
From what I know from the pump attendant, its mobile phone pay (im using apple) that is less. Not recognised for some discount factor.
Must be credit card paywave. I use ESSO.
Hope it helps
While I don't drive and haven't had to make any payment for fuel, I combed through the various fuel companies' websites just a few days ago to compile the various credit card discounts.
There was a particular criterion that puzzled me a little (didn't know you could pay at the pump), but it might explain any discrepancy you've experienced? Apparently, the Caltex discounts for HSBC differs depending on whether it's indoors or outdoor payment. So far, this was the only instance I've encountered, not sure if the others are hidden in their T&Cs.
Plus, some of the discounts may also specify whether contactless payments are eligible, so it's best to check out the fine prints before you pay even though it's a little troublesome!
The applied discount is the same since it is tagged to your loyalty card (if any) and credit card.
Here is everything about me and what I do best.
