What Are Group Savings?
It is more cost-effective for a supplier to fulfil one large order for heating oil in a local area, they will normally pass on reductions in their delivery costs, and provide a bulk discount. Consequently, a lower per litre price is paid when buying 2,000 litres or more, than if buying just 500 litres.
Therefore we have designed a Group Saving programme to help you get the very best price, no matter how much you order. When an order is placed that qualifies, it is automatically grouped with others that have been placed with the same supplier in the same postcode area on that same day and, if enough orders from your area are grouped together, an extra discount is applied to each order, helping you save even more money on the heating oil you receive.
To obtain the best advantage from this scheme, encourage your friends, family and neighbours to order from the same supplier during the same day to increase your chance of saving - the bigger the group, the larger the discounts for everybody
To qualify for Group Savings, each individual order must be for 500 litres or more of Kerosene 28 ordered on standard 10 day delivery terms to be delivered in a standard 6-wheel tanker.
Your order final confirmation email will show whether any additional savings have been applied to your order, and what those savings are. This email is sent to you the day after you place your order. In addition, you can view your order details at any time in your CompareThe OilPrice.com account.
As orders will be placed with the supplier offering the best deal on the day, it does not matter when in the day you place your order - every buyer in the group always pays the lowest price available in your postcode, during that day. If your total payment when you originally placed your order is higher than the final Group Savings price that evolves for later orders in that period, we automatically refund the additional saving into your account after your delivery has been made. You may use the balance towards your next CompareTheOilPrice.com order, or have it refunded onto the card that you registered on your account.
