Frequent Flyer Petrol Points - Woolworths con

Strange offer has appeared on the radar of Perth Hacks. Woolworths is offering you the opportunity to forego the 4c off / Litre which you earn by spending $30 or more at Woolworths. You can trade that benefit for earning Frequent Flyer points. The rate of conversion is 2 FF points per litre of petrol. 

If you have a 50L car: 

4c off voucher will get you a saving of = $2
2 Frequent Flyer points / Litre = 100 points = $0.69c saving (assuming $50 voucher = 7250 FF points)

Don't do it :)
