United and BP announced today a new rewards partnerships where United MileagePlus members can earn miles when the purchase gas at BP fuel stations.
Per the email campaign from United & BP:
When BP Driver Rewards and MileagePlus members sign up for this new program, they can earn 200 bonus award miles after joining and making their first fuel purchase with a linked debit or credit card.* Members can multiply their earnings through the following options:
- One award mile for every gallon of fuel purchased*
- Two award miles for every gallon of fuel purchased with a linked debit or credit card**
- Three award miles for every gallon of premium-grade fuel purchased with a linked debit or credit card**
In addition, BP Driver Rewards and MileagePlus members will be able to use 60 award miles per gallon to save 50 cents per gallon with a linked debit or credit card.
You can register for the new rewards program here and earn 200 miles at sign up. Not only can you earn MileagePlus award miles when you buy fuel, you can also redeem your miles towards discounts on fuel purchases.
This particular program won’t serve me as there aren’t any BP fuel stations near my home. Plus, I only fill out my car’s fuel tank about once a month so I wouldn’t much gain. But it might be a value to somehow who spends quite a bit on fuel and lives in an area with lot of BP fuel stations.
