The Offer

A maximum of £50 will be available on a prepaid Mastercard® card to eligible new customers purchasing RAC breakdown cover. The total amount awarded will be determined by total spend excluding credit card payment fees in one transaction:

  • £20 when you spend between £99 and £118.99
  • £30 when you spend between £119 and £148.99
  • £50 when you spend over £149

To Qualify

To qualify for the RAC prepaid Mastercard debit card (the ‘Card’) you must purchase RAC Individual Member Breakdown cover direct from RAC by visiting www.rac.co.uk, or by calling us direct.

Purchases must take place during the term of the promotion between 2nd March 2017 and 19th April 2017. Your payments must be up to date in order for us to issue and top up your Card.

The offer is not available to existing RAC Breakdown customers buying (or renewing their existing) breakdown cover or on purchases of breakdown during a breakdown situation.

This offer is fulfilled online and via email therefore you must provide a valid email address at the time of purchase in order to claim your Card.

The offer excludes purchases of RAC Response (Blue Badge Cover) and purchases made through cashback and voucher code sites.

The offer excludes employees of RAC, their immediate families, agents or any other person connected with the promotion.

The Card can be spent by the Cardholder at most places in the UK that displays the Mastercard acceptance mark.

The Card cannot be used to obtain cash, nor can it be used to purchase fuel via a Pay@Pump facility.

Only one Card per customer, UK residents only.

There are no cash or any other alternatives available.


How It Works

To claim your Card you must log in to www.racfreefueloffer2017.co.uk before midnight on 20th July 2017 and enter your membership and unique reference number which will be emailed to you within 10 days of your purchase date.

Provided your payments are up to date and you have logged in to www.racfreefueloffer2017.co.uk to accept the offer terms and conditions and claim your Card, the Card will be posted to your home address 30 days after your policy purchase date.

In advance of your Card arriving you will receive your activation instruction email to your registered email address.

In order to be able to use your Card it must be activated within 3 months of the date we dispatch the Card to you. To activate your card go www.purecard.com and follow the on-screen prompts. As part of the activation process, you will be shown your PIN.

Customers paying for their RAC membership annually will be issued their Mastercard pre-loaded with the full value. Customers paying for their RAC membership monthly will be issued their Mastercard pre-loaded with £10 and, provided they still meet all the qualifying criteria, payments are up to date, and they have activated their Card, their card will automatically be topped up with the remaining balance at the following intervals:

  • £20 free fuel – £5 will be topped up at month 6 and £5 will be topped up at month 12
  • £30 free fuel – £10 will be topped up at month 6 and £10 will be topped up at month 12
  • £50 free fuel – £20 will be topped up at month 6 and £20 will be topped up at month 12

The amount topped up on your Card (above) will be determined by the monthly payment at the time.

Things You Need To Know

Please keep your Fuel Card safe, particularly if you are paying monthly as you’ll need it for the subsequent top up payments.

The Card will be valid until the expiration date printed on the front of the Card. For full details of the Card Terms and Conditions visit www.racfreefueloffer2017.co.uk/About/TermsAndConditions.

If the amount of the value available on the Card is not sufficient to cover your purchase, you will need to pay the difference by other means first (cheque, cash, debit or credit card) then use the Card.

Offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer and RAC reserve the right to vary or amend these terms and conditions or to withdraw the promotion at any time.

By participating in the promotion, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions and the Card terms of use.

It will be necessary to pass some of your data to The Grass Roots Group UK Limited for the purposes of administering the Card. Your data will be kept secure and will not be used for any other purpose.
