Amex Offer: Get 2x Membership Rewards Points at BP & Amoco
American Express has added a great new offer to earn additional Membership Rewards points at the gas pump. It’s currently possible to get 2x additional points per dollar you spend at both BP & Amoco gas stations.
Membership Rewards points are what you earn from cards like the Platinum Card from American Express and the American Express Gold Card. That means you need one of these cards or another that earns Membership Rewards points to be eligible for this targeted offer.
There’s no limit to the number of times you can use this offer, but it expires on Sept. 10. Additionally, the offer is only valid on fuel purchased at the pump.
This Amoco & BP Amex offer is targeted which means it won’t be available for all cardholders. However, both my wife and I have it on all of our Membership Rewards earning American Express cards, so it appears it is widely available.
Where to find Amex Offers
If you haven’t used Amex Offers before, simply log into your American Express account and scroll down near the bottom of the screen and there should be a box called Amex Offers & Benefits (this is available through the Amex mobile app as well). If you see an offer you like, simply add the offer to the card and make a qualifying purchase at that business with your card. You should receive a statement credit for the offer within a few days of making a purchase.

If you have this offer on a card like the Blue Business Plus Credit Card from American Express which earns 2x Membership Rewards points on all purchases up to $50,000 annually, this offer effectively lets you earn 4x Membership Rewards points on gas purchases through September. You can also earn 4x Membership Rewards points per dollar spent with the Amex Everyday Preferred card since it already earns 2x at gas stations.
Have the American Express Business Gold Card which earns 4x points per dollar spent on gas? This offer allows you to earn 6x points per dollar spent.
Even if you only have the Platinum Card from American Express or the American Express Gold Card which would normally only earn 1x point per dollar spent on gas, you will earn 3x points per dollar. That’s a great deal.
Just make sure you pay at the pump at any BP or Amoco gas station.
Amex offers are great because they’re basically free money – or points – for spending you’re going to do anyhow. It’s just another way to justify the cost of a credit card annual fee.
Make sure to check your various American Express credit cards because each one can have different offers. It looks like this Amoco & BP Amex offer is targeted, and only available for Membership Rewards earning credit cardholders, so it won’t be available for everybody. The offers change quite frequently, so add this one now before it disappears.
