There are few things more satisfying than earning points & miles that are relatively effortless. Last week, United Airlines & BP announced a partnership that allows you to earn United MileagePlus miles just for purchasing gas at BP. Further, you will receive a 200-mile bonus when you sign up for BP’s driver rewards program. When creating your account, you can choose between earning cents off per gallon or United MileagePlus miles.

The number of miles you can earn will vary based on whether or not you are using a linked credit or debit card, and if you are purchasing regular or premium grade fuel. You are only able to earn bonus miles on up to 20 gallons of gas purchased per transaction. These miles will be in addition to any points or miles earned from the credit card used to complete the transaction.

After signing up for BP driver rewards, be sure to link at least one credit or debit card, as you will earn additional points for doing so. The earning structure is as follows:

  • Earn 1 United MileagePlus mile for every gallon of fuel purchased
  • Earn 2 United MileagePlus miles for every gallon of fuel purchased with your linked credit or debit card
  • Earn 3 United MileagePlus miles for every gallon of premium-grade fuel purchased with your linked credit or debit card

Thrifty Tip: United MileagePlus miles expire after 18 months of no activity. This promotion is a great opportunity to reset the clock on the expiration of your United miles.
