United Airlines’ frequent flyer members can now earn and use United MileagePlus air miles at BP petrol stations.
BP and United Airlines have launched a new partnership to offer BP Driver Rewards and United MileagePlus members the option of earning and using miles on fuel purchases at participating BP retail locations in the US. They claim this is the only program in the US that allows customers the ability to earn and use airline miles at the pump for gasoline purchases. MileagePlus is the frequent flyer program of United Airlines. The airline is a member of the Star Alliance frequent flyer network.
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.
