“not serving children properly”

Written on: 25/07/2013

Twice I have been served after children have been refused their penny change. It might be alright to tell adults Sorry We don't have any pennies. But children should not be treated like this. The second time this happened I was given my penny change but not my receipt so I could get my points added on as I had forgotten my card. I hope these were just 3 mistakes… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/09/2012

You are not alone, but I find this happens in my car when I use Tesco fuel. Not sure nowadays, but Tesco used to be Esso supplied, and this fuel also served my car poorly. For me, I get most out of BP petrol or our local Sainsbury, which leads me to the conclusion that our local Sainsburys' has actually got BP in the tanker. My local sainsbury's is also a couple of pence cheaper than the BP across the road. Maybe it is worth trying £10 of BP to see if this gives you similar mileage to your sainsburys? Good Luck.

This funny as it seems to have happened to me, i put in £18 Texaco at the coop in blaby and it lasted me a month (i usualy use £40 a month) then i put in £20 at sainsburys and it only lasted two and a half weeks, in the past ive done full tank checks of sainsburys fuel and my citroen xsara got 35 to the gallon month after month, but ive not checked the milage lately.

“The petrol from this station is far more expensive...”

Written on: 23/10/2010

The petrol from this station is far more expensive than most other stations (up to 5p per litre). Since Sainsbury's took over the former Somerfield store we have scene the demise of 3 independant petrol stations. The reason for this demise......they simply undercut the fuel prices that the others were charging......result, the smaller stations could not compete and so went out of business. Sainsbury's now have the monopoly for North Walsham and the surrounding area, as the nearest petrol… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/10/2010

Used the Sainsbury's forecourt in Grantham yesterday, mainly because all the other stations in town had increased their prices by 1 or 2 pence per litre - including ASDA! Lowest price, great customer service, and even with 4 diesel pumps out of action, very speedy service! The staff set me up with a Nectar card, gave me a laugh and i left with a smile. Overall a great experience… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/08/2010

In this area where wages are known to be low Sainsbury's have admitted that because there is no other competition they keep their petrol prices higher than other areas, where as Taunton approx 40 miles away the petrol prices can be 5p a litre less because there is a Morrison's nearby. Tesco in our area also hold their prices high so they are not any better.(Sainsbury's admission to higher prices were quoted to me by email from the costomer services when I asked why the prices were higher)… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/07/2010

My concerns are: I drove into their garage with 40 miles showing on my fuel gauge. I put in £29.00 (they were advertising at 1.12). My gauge read 245 miles after filling. The receipt actually showed the cost of the fuel at 1.129!

I then refueled at Bury St Edmunds Sainsbury's. My gauge read 10 miles left. I put in £25 at 1.15 and after filling my gauge read 280 miles.... Less fuel, but more miles? Are they short changing in Devon… Read Full Review

“I do not understand why, when SAINSBURY'S PETROL is...”

Written on: 12/07/2010

I do not understand why, when SAINSBURY'S PETROL is bought from one supplier/refinery in bulk, that the price varies from £1:14.9 per litre in the city stores to £1:18.9 per litre in my local Sainsbury's in our rural market town of North Walsham in Norfolk? Sainsbury's obviously have the 'monopoly' with no competition, so therefore they are exploiting us rural dwellers!We have no choice but to pay this extortionate price which is so unfair and should not be allowed. Our nearest alternative… Read Full Review

Nick Jenkins's Comment

Written on: 07/11/2010

I found this review not helpful because...This person fails to understand that petrol has to be delivered from oil refineries and distribution centres. It may well be the extra 2p or 3p per litre is due to these direct costs. If Sainsbury is the only local petrol station and you think it is too expensive go to the nearest alternative and pay the distribution costs yourself (time and money).

Written on: 11/06/2010

In my part of the world, Oxford, Sainsburys have a major market share of both their own grocery & other in store products & fuel.
There are two large stores about 10 minutes apart, one north of the city & the other south. Over recent weeks the northen store has consitantly been 3p per litre (across the board) more expensive than the southern store, which has a Tesco 5 minutes away.
So if you're in this part of the world you might want to a) use the southern store, or b), exert some customer… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/10/2009

Good food but highly priced! Fairly good range...but, The fruit always goes off within 2/3 days! Especially those which are forced ripe...

The petrol offers would be good for us except that we would have to travel to Brighton to get the 5p off offer!!! Defeats the object!

Does Sainsburys own BP/Shell in the Uk?

Good start but a long way to go to be a better Tesco and truly help the general public!

The websites should have a petrol station locator!

You get one Nectar point per litre of fuel from Land's End to John O'Groats. This cannot change under any circumstances. Staff can't choose to put less points on for you, it's automatic. If you want your points putting on give them your nectar card, they don't have to ask you for it by law.

Written on: 16/05/2008 by nor4h (2 reviews written)

I have rheumatoid arthritis and if I ask the attendant at Sainsbury's petrol stations, someone will fill the tank for me, which is a great help! It would be better if an attendant actually offered to fill your tank, rather than having to go in and ask. In the Republic of Ireland they do this routinely at most petrol stations. It really hurts my hands to use the heavy metal nozzle. Their petrol prices are usually the lowest in my area… Read Full Review
