I'm willing to install an app for £10; just hope it works better than the Esso one!

Morrisons credit received automatically on 5th day (had to get the PayPal credit added manually though).

Unfortunately, it's even worse. Tried it on my devices; in both cases multiple attempts to add card details resulted in one time codes being sent by e-mail and SMS however there's no way to enter them on the app as the page clears to blank at this point; can't input the codes, so can't add payment details, so can't buy any fuel! Why are fuel companies releasing these rubbish apps?

i just don't get involved Sarah - more hassle than they are worth.

i've had £5 SS from buying a takeaway, and should have some cashback en route from a £40+ purchase at Morrisons.

These fuel apps do seem largely pointless; admittedly on one occasion the Esso app enabled me to avoid a long queue but at the expense of too much faff away from the forecourt to get it set up. The fuel was also overpriced compared to Tesco.

Now that I have the Esso one working, I've used it a couple more times too, as there are some small additional incentives and moreover another Esso location has recently been undercutting all other fuel prices in the local area so I decided to go there anyway whilst that lasts.

I found with more experiment that the BPme app would successfully add other cards, e.g. MasterCard, just not American Express, which is no help since the £10 off is obviously only for using Amex!

I managed 5 x £5 small shop transactions this year at an independent opticians (not many of these survive), corner shop, off-licence, bookshop and Toy Barnhaus. The credits have all been applied already, together with lots of Morrisons ones.
