MORRISONS is halving the amount of points customers can earn when filling up at its petrol stations.
Currently, members of the grocer’s “More” loyalty scheme get 10 points for every litre of fuel they buy at a Morrisons forecourt, but this will drop to five points per litre from May 1.
While there will be no change to the value of the points, it means it will take customers longer to collect enough points to get a voucher.
Shoppers need to earn 5,000 points before they are awarded a £5 voucher.
Customers have taken to social media to express their anger at the news, calling out the fact that Morrisons hasn’t acknowledged that this change will reduce the amounts of points they will earn.
Morrisons said it was making the changes in order to keep prices down at the pump.
A spokesman for the supermarket said: “Our customers have told us how important it is that we remain as competitive as possible on fuel prices.
“We are making the change so that we continue to be competitive, whilst providing customers the opportunity to earn points for every litre they buy.”
