EG Fuel Card
EG is the newest fuel card on the market that can only be used at Caltex and Caltex/Woolworths branded stations.
Unlike the Caltex StarCard, EG has a much more aggressive pump discount and a lower monthly fee. The trade-off is this card can only be used for fuel purchases.
EG Fuel Card
Pros & Cons
What's not so good?
EG Card is Australia’s newest fuel card designed for businesses that primarily use Caltex Woolworths stations and fuel-only purchases.
Comparatively to Caltex’s own fuel card (Caltex StarCard) with a $2.95/m per card fee, the EG Card fee is 25% cheaper at $2.19/m per card but limited to only Caltex Woolworth stations – this cannot be used at Caltex stations. To sweeten the deal, they’ve also introduced a 6c/l discount for the first 6 months with the ability to stack on extra discounts by scanning in your shopper dockets from Woolworths.
This card is most suited to businesses that want the flexibility of more cards and only make fuel purchases at Caltex Woolworths stations.
For the sake of comparison, here’s when EG Card comes out cheaper vs Caltex StarCard when we don’t take into account promotional period or shopper dockets. This is a calculation mainly to see where the discounted card fees diminishes vs an ongoing fuel discount (calculated at 2c/l).
- If you use 1,000l/m of fuel and need 27 cards or more ($59.13/m vs $59.65). Anything less you’re better off with Caltex StarCard that has a 2c/l discount and higher monthly fee.
- If you use 2,500l/m of fuel and need 66 cards or more ($144.54/m vs $144.70).
- If you use 5,000/m of fuel and need 132 cards or more ($289.08/m vs $289.40).
- If you use 10,000/m of fuel and need 264 cards or more ($578.16/m vs $578.80).
However if you add shopper docket savings of 4c/l into the equation which the EG card allows, it changes the picture completely and comes out on top in every scenario.
