BP Rewards Guide: Earn BP points or Qantas points

Fuel prices are continuing to rise, but there are ways to save on filling up with BP Rewards.

If you love collecting Qantas Frequent Flyer points, scoring David Jones eGift cards, or saving dollars off fuel, then BP Rewards can help you get ahead.

BP Rewards unlocks the ability for customers to earn points on fuel and in-store purchases across participating BP stores. Plus, Qantas Frequent Flyer and BP have expanded their partnership by allowing members to use Qantas Points to pay for fuel at participating BP service stations.

With travel ramping back up and the cost of fuel double what it was just one year ago, BP Rewards may be a compelling rewards program to join.

Read on to discover everything you need to know about BP Rewards.

What is BP Rewards?

BP Rewards is Australia’s leading loyalty program for fuel. Since it offers members the choice between earning BP Points or Qantas Points, it offers flexible rewards.

Qantas Points enthusiast? Select the Qantas Points option to earn directly into your Qantas Frequent Flyer account. You can then redeem points for flights, upgrades, and more.

Alternatively, if you opt to earn BP Points on fuel purchases, once you’ve registered and started earning points, you can choose to redeem for David Jones Gift Cards, vouchers and dollars off on spend at BP stores and outlets in Australia.

And, in a program first, Qantas Frequent Flyers now use Qantas Points at the point of purchase in-store at BP on fuel and eligible purchases over $10 (or 1900 Qantas Points), using new Reward Code technology.

How to join BP Rewards

Registering for the BP Rewards loyalty program is quick, free, and easy. It only takes a minute, and you can join right here.

Taking up a BP Rewards membership is almost certainly worth it for the points you’ll earn every time you fill up the tank, stop in for essentials or swipe your credit card for a coffee.

Once you’ve registered, you’ll be automatically sent an email to set your password and invited to select which points you’d like to earn. If you opt for Qantas Points, at this stage, you’ll be asked to input your Qantas Frequent Flyer number.

Qantas Frequent Flyer and BP Rewards Partnership

BP Rewards boasts an exclusive partnership with the Qantas Frequent Flyer program, taking the space previously occupied by Caltex (now Ampol). It’s now the only fuel loyalty program that will directly earn you Qantas Points, offering generous earn rates on eligible purchases at the bowser and in-store.

The exclusive tie-up between BP and Qantas unlocks the ability for consumers to earn Qantas Points on both fuel and eligible in-store purchases across participating retail sites. Plus, once you’ve earned Qantas Frequent Flyer Points, it’s possible to use them for purchases at the pump, as we’ll explain below.

Join the Qantas Frequent Flyer program for free via BP Rewards

And, if you’re interested in earning Qantas Points but not yet a member of Qantas Frequent Flyer, you can join for free as soon as you’ve registered for a BP Rewards account.

Qantas Frequent Flyer membership normally costs $99.50 for Australians who join direct. However, this fee is waived for BP Rewards members. Simply select the ‘Join Qantas Frequent Flyer’ option once you’ve signed into your BP Rewards account for the first time to become a Qantas Frequent Flyer member at no cost.

Using Qantas Points for BP fuel purchases

Qantas Frequent Flyer members can use Qantas Points to pay for eligible purchases at participating BP service stations. Redemptions are processed at the point of purchase using new Reward Code technology. Here’s how it works:

  1. Qantas Frequent Flyer members scan their digital QFF Card via the Qantas app, Apple Wallet or Google Pay at the point of purchase
  2. On the PIN pad, they will then be able to see how many points are required and will be given the option to complete the purchase using Qantas Points.
  3. If choosing to use Qantas Points, members will need to locate their single-use four-digit Reward Code on the digital Qantas Frequent Flyer card via either the Qantas app or via their phone’s digital wallet. Note, that this is different from the Qantas Frequent Flyer PIN and will refresh after each successful redemption for security purposes.
  4. After adding their unique Reward Code on the PIN pad, points will be deducted from the member’s Qantas Frequent Flyer account immediately.

Members can now pay with Qantas Points without getting out of the car via the BPme app (at participating BPme service stations). Simply download the app and choose how many Qantas Points you wish to use on the app before filling up. By doing so, Qantas Frequent Flyer Members will receive $10 off for every 1,500 points used.

It’s worth noting that you will need a minimum of 1,500 Qantas Points in your account. Qantas Points can only be used to cover transactions of at least $10 and up to a maximum of $100. Spends over $100 will require the remainder to be paid in cash.

Is it worth spending Qantas Points on fuel?

This redemption option is valid for fuel and eligible purchases over $10. So is it worthwhile spending Qantas Points in this way? With 1,900 Qantas Points unlocking the equivalent of $10 in credit, the value proposition here isn’t on par with redemptions such as business and first class Classic Flight Rewards or premium cabin upgrades.

Burning points at the bowser works out to give you a value of about 0.53 cents per Qantas point, which is one of the worst value propositions we see.

Classic Flight Rewards, on the other hand, can offer several cents of value per Qantas Point, with first and business class redemptions almost always up there with the best uses of Qantas Points. However, there’s no doubt that some consumers will find it convenient to redeem Qantas Points in this way.

When using Qantas Points for fuel or in-store purchases, members will also earn Qantas Points at the same rate as when paying with cash

How to avoid an accidental redemption at the bowser

When paying for fuel, you’ll need to scan your Qantas card at the point of sale, after which you’ll be prompted to enter your Reward Code to use Qantas Points.

Entering your Reward Code is not necessary for earning Qantas Point on your fuel purchase, in fact means you’ve opted to use Qantas Points.

Paying for fuel is synonymous with being in a rush, so be sure to read the options carefully here. So a fool-proof way to ensure you don’t accidentally redeem points on fuel is to completely disable the ability to redeem Qanats points via the BPme app settings. Here’s how to do this:

  1. Open your BPme app
  2. Navigate to ‘settings’
  3. Scroll down to ‘loyalty preferences’
  4. Toggle ‘points redemption off’

bp rewards app settings

To reiterate, entering your unique Reward Code on the PIN pad at the point of purchase means points will be deducted from your frequent flyer account immediately.

So basically, don’t enter your Reward Code if you don’t want to use Qantas Points on fuel.

Accidentally redeemed Qantas Points on fuel?

It can be easy to accidentally redeem Qantas Points on fuel, but unfortunately getting them back is not as simple.

There have been reports of some Qantas members having a redemption reversed by contacting BP Rewards or the Qantas Frequent Flyer Service Centre, but it’s in no way guaranteed.

In fact, you’re probably guaranteed to be spending hours on the phone more than anything else, so your best bet is to make sure the points redemption capability is switched off in the first place.

You can try your luck by calling BP Rewards on 1300 130 027 or Qantas on 13 13 13.

Earning points with BP Rewards

As a BP Rewards member, you’ll earn points on any eligible purchase. Whether you choose Qantas Points or BP Points, the earn rate is quite generous.

To earn points, simply scan your digital BP Rewards card, the BPme app, a Qantas Frequent Flyer card, or the digital card in your Qantas app at a BP service station or store.

If you’ve opted to earn BP Points, these will be credited to your BP Rewards account.

You can pay for eligible purchases with either credit card, cash, or through the BPme app.

Opting to earn Qantas Points

If you choose to earn Qantas Points through BP Rewards, these will sweep automatically through to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account. Once you’ve amassed enough points, you can use them for many valuable redemptions now that travel has ramped back up.

Personally speaking, I’m using my Qantas Points for Luxury Rail Journeys, business class upgrades, and flights across the Tasman. A Zone One Classic Flight Reward starts from just 8,000 Qantas Points in Economy, plus taxes.

Switching between Qantas and BP Points

If you’d like flexibility, it’s good to know that it’s possible to switch your preferred points-earning partner.

As an example, if you’re earning Qantas Points and would like to switch to earning BP Points, the balance you hold at the time of transfer will be converted to Qantas Points at a rate of 1:1.

Benefits of downloading the BPme app

If like me, you’re a parent of small children, then you’ll appreciate the convenience of an app that allows you to fill up and pay for fuel from the comfort of your car without needing to head into a store with the kids in tow.

BPme app BP Rewards guide

Along with the ability to pay for fuel from your car, the BPme app provides access to coffee and food pre-ordering, the ability to view BP Rewards offers, check your points earn tally, and access your digital BP Rewards card to scan in-store.

You can earn BP Points or Qantas Points on all eligible purchases through the BPme app. You can download the BPme app for iOS or Android.

BP Rewards points earn rates

Whether you choose Qantas Points or BP Points, BP Rewards unlocks generous points earn rates on eligible purchases. You’ll be rewarded as follows:

Earning with BP as a Business

Are you a business owner or ABN holder? Qantas Business Rewards members can earn more points with eligible business expenses at BP, plus access to some other perks.

BP Plus Fuel Card

The BP Plus fuel card is designed for business owners and ABN holders, with the aim of making running a vehicle fleet easy and efficient.

It’s also possible for BP Plus Fuel cardholders to earn Qantas Points at BP stores across Australia via Qantas Business Rewards. With the exit of Caltex, it’s now the only fuel card in the market that offers Qantas Points for business.

There are many benefits on offer for businesses. The key features are as follows:

• Save up to 3 cents per litre on fuel (including BP Ultimate)
• Consolidate all fuel and vehicle expenses in one simple GST-substantiated statement
• Online reporting and fleet management tools are available 24/7
• BP Plus cards are accepted at over 1,400 BP sites across Australia

BP Plus Fuel Card earn rates

If you’re a business owner or ABN holder with a BP Plus card, you’ll earn points at the following rates:

• 1 point for every litre of BP Ultimate 98 Unleaded
• 1 point for every 2 litres of BP 91, 95, LPG, Diesel, and Ultimate Diesel
• 1 point for every $1 on eligible in-store purchases

BP Plus Fuel Card promotions

From time to time, the BP Plus Fuel Card offers bonus Qantas Points promotion offers for new customers. While there is no current offer at the time of writing, check back, as we add new offers into this post.

Previous offers have seen members earn 10x Qantas Points by filling up or shopping at BP. That’s a ludicrous 20 Qantas Points per litre (1,800 points for a 90 litre tank), so it pays to keep watch for BP’s exclusive Qantas Frequent Flyer offers.

If you’re not already a Qantas Business Rewards member, you can sign up for free before you sign up with BP Plus and link accounts to earn points on fuel spend straight away.

Amex and BP Plus Fuel Card

If you’re considering signing up for a BP Plus account and planning to whip out your Visa or Mastercard to pay it off, you might want to think again. BP has partnered with American Express to provide BP Plus customers with extra benefits. By paying your BP Plus account with American Express, you will pay 0% card service fees.

    Recently, I purchased fuel expecting to receive 200/300 Qanta Points as result of purchase, however, only credited with 49 normal points I made my purchase within the correct timeframe for the promotion but have not been credited with the promotion of 200 or 300 points.
    Appreciate your response.

    Don’t do it.

    Nothing but trouble with BP Customer Service.

    The phone operator told me they would call me back after an issue with my account.

    They the refused to escalate my complaint.

    The BP person was super unprofessional.

    BP Plus Card has been cancelled.

    I would like to know why I cannot activate offers when an email is sent to me. When I click onto activate it tries for load but never happens. I wish all my purchases to go to QFF as well as special offers. Can this be sorted out for me please. An explanation would be appreciated.
