Free Points

Earn United Miles for Gasoline Purchases with BP

Most of us have or are aware of credit cards that earn bonus miles/points for purchases at gas stations.  For example, during this first quarter of 2018, the Chase Freedom card  has gas stations as one of its bonus categories and you can earn 5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent.  The IHG card will earn 2 points per dollar.  The Hilton card will give you 5 points per dollar.  And now you can double up those bonuses when you link your card to your BP Driver Rewards account.

You can sign up at this website or if you’re like me and already have a BP Driver Reward account, just log into your account, click on the BP Driver Rewards tab at the top and scroll down just a little until you see the photo of the United Airlines plane.

When you click on the Learn More button you see that you can earn 1, 2 or 3 miles per gallon:

Even better, you’ll earn 200 bonus miles for your first purchase after linking a debit or credit card to your BP Driver Rewards account and paying with that card.

The downside to this is that you can’t earn both cash back and airline miles for the same purchase. If you already have a BPDR account and you want to earn miles, you’ll need to log into your account to change your rewards type.  You can do that on the My Account tab.

NOTE: This promotion is not available to California residents.

If you don’t have other ways of earning United miles, this is a great way to extend the life of the miles you do have, since every addition of miles extends the life of your entire pool of miles for 18 months.

What if BP gas is not the cheapest in your area?  United miles are worth approximately 1.4-1.5 cents apiece.  So if BP gas is more than about 2 cents per gallon more expensive than your usual gas station it might not be worth more than an occasional visit to help extend your UA miles.  I’ve recently stocked up on Kroger fuel points thanks to a 4x fuel points on gift cards promotion this weekend so it may be a month or two before I take advantage of this BP promotion.

But for those of you who spend a lot at the pump, this could be a nice way to bump up your UA stash of points.

Marriott Extra Points Sundays is Back!

During the NFL regular season we saw Marriott offer 1000 bonus points each week if you could answer an NFL trivia question.  That promotion ended with the regular season but they’ve brought it back for one day only for the Super Bowl.

If you haven’t already, now is the perfect time to link your Marriott and Twitter accounts so that once the questions start you’ll be able to earn the bonus points.  To learn how to connect your accounts, see this post.

Good luck to both teams!  Those of us here in Memphis win either way as both kickers are U of M alums!

1000 Free Marriott Points is Back!

After taking a week off for Christmas, Marriott is back with their offer of 1000 free points if you can answer their NFL trivia question. Here is this week’s question:

If you think you know the answer, link your Marriott and Twitter accounts (see this post for instructions) and reply to @MarriottRewards with the answer.  Be sure to include the hashtag #RewardsPoints.  Tweets must be submitted by 8 PM ET.

This is the last week of the NFL’s regular season and I don’t know if Marriott will continue to offer points during the playoffs so be sure to get these 1000 points this week!

Note: Two weeks ago there were issues with bots compromising the process so make sure you get a response to your tweet.  If you submit your tweet before 8 PM ET but don’t hear back from Marriott by the following morning, follow up with tweets to @MarriottRewards and @Marriott to be sure you get your points.
