    I think it is wrong to give a fuel discount for buying alcohol.

    I don't they are products that should be linked.

    Maybe I have just experienced to many deaths from drunk drivers.

    By the way, you don't need to be a alcoholic to kill someone by drink driving.

    I just think its a bit dumb. The fuel vouchers only save a couple of dollars anyway, so unless you were planning to buy the beer & fuel anyway, you'll save no money.

    We don't have a car as we can't afford one, so this doesn't effect us. Though DF drives me mental with the everyday rewards cards telling me if you spend over $100 or $150 you get x number of points. But the points are maybe worth a dollar, if that, I'm
    Not spending $20+ more on groceries we don't need & cant afford to get freaking points

    And while yeah I don't like that alcohol & fuel being associated, lots of people buy alcohol & buy fuel, particularly this time of year, so it's just the major chains trying to get people to spend that additional money with them & not elsewhere.

    If a family is struggling, they will still be struggling after a fuel discount. Those things are a rort no matter what they are worth. Safeway/coles will still extract their pound of flesh.

    Coles/woolworths aren't rewarding behaviour. Everything is designed so they monopolise the grocery/liquor/fuel markets.

    if you don't like it, you can opt out by buying from an independent service station.

    Eta, the reference to the struggling families seems to say the supermarkets should make their decisions as centrelink does.

    Yes. I can't understand what the problem is here.

    I also don't like the assumption that poor people shouldn't drink, don't deserve a beer, or are raging alcoholics if they do buy alcohol.

    If you buy your fruit and veges from a farmers market or green grocer and meat from a butcher and your other groceries from independent supermarket you will save so much more money. That money that you save can then be spent to buy your fuel at an independent Petrol station. I am so sick of watching the big guys have a monopoly when they sell rubbish quality at a higher price.
    Don't buy into these gimmicks the only people who win are Coles and Woolies.

    Alcohol and fuel shouldn't be linked, ever. It'd be like selling cigerattes and giving a pregnancy test discount.
