BP petrol discount rip-off.

Henry from Awapuni

If you are an AA member you can get a 10c/L discount at BP stations, usually on Wednesdays and sometimes Saturdays. Yesterday, I went and filled up at BP Fitzherbert Ave. The advertised price was 214.9c/L, which I thought was a bit high, but came down to 204.9 with the discount. My wife went to BP Pioneer and filled up, the advertised price was 209.9c/L, down to 199.9c/L with the discount!
I decided to check prices today, knowing that you can usually get a 6c/L discount at most stations;
BP Pioneer 209.9 (203.90). BP Fitzherbert 210.0 (204.9).
Mobile Pioneer 209.9
New World Pioneer 207.9 (201.9)
Challenge West End 207.9 (201.9)
I know it is common for prices to go up on certain occasions, but to use an AA promotion for its members is ripping them off!
I don't think I will bother with future discounts unless they can be shown as genuine.

Ryman Healthcare Limited

It’s a time for fine-tuning your skills and pushing the boundaries, catching up with your mates and heading off on new adventures at the drop of a hat! No, we’re not talking about your 20s, we’re talking about your retirement.

Ross’ retirement saw the beginning of his musical journey where his passion quickly evolved from making music, to crafting guitars. It all started when Ross and some mates joined a music group where the camaraderie and togetherness were just as important as the music.

Living in a Ryman village, Ross can continue living life to the full in his retirement because they are places where you don’t retire from life, you find a new way to live .
