A new loyalty scheme combining supermarket savings with discounts at the petrol pump will be the largest in the country.

Countdown's loyalty scheme Onecard has combined with AA Smartfuel to bring together their saving schemes on one card.

The combined loyalty scheme will have 3.5 million members and overtake Fly Buys, which has 2.5 million members.

The Onecard AA Smartfuel joint programme will offer members discounts at Countdown, instant savings of 6 cents per litre at BP or Caltex when members spend $40 or more at the pump, and the opportunity to earn supermarket vouchers or accumulate additional discounts at BP or Caltex.

New Onecards will be issued to all active Onecard holders and AA members and all new Onecards, AA membership cards and AA smartfuel cards will be co-branded Onecards.

Countdown's Head of Loyalty Susan D'lima says "by partnering with AA Smartfuel we're opening up an instant fuel saving to Onecard holders, and enabling AA Smartfuel cardholders to accumulate fuel savings on what could be their biggest spend per week once the bills are paid.

"Together both programmes give consumers more opportunities to save whenever they swipe, on a single card, and without having to keep track of dockets."
