Back in July, we suggested that the ACCC wasn't likely to let massive fuel discounts in return for large amounts of supermarket spending become the norm. Last week, it proved exactly that.

Coles' plans to run a similar fuel discount deal to the ones seen in July were scuppered when the ACCC objected, forcing it to withdraw the deals at the last minute. The lesson? You probably don't want to rely on fuel discounts until you've actually got the fuel. If they come along, they're a nice bonus, but there are plenty of other more reliable tactics for saving money.
