Expert review

The BP Business Solutions Fuel Plus card is a closed-loop card for managers of midsize fleets. It offers up to 6 cents per gallon in fuel rebates. However, watch out for a monthly account fee of up to $10 per account, which can cut into your savings.

The issuing bank, Fleetcor determines whether your credit is revolving or non-revolving. A revolving account allows user to make a minimum payment after each billing cycle. A non-revolving account means you have to pay the entire balance at each billing cycle.

How to apply for the BP Business Solutions Fuel Plus card

  1. Navigate to the BP website, then click Apply now.
  2. Fill out the application form with information about your business, such as its contact details, number of vehicles and annual income.
  3. Review your details and submit your application.

What credit score do I need?

With a fair credit score of 580 or higher, you may be approved for this card. If your score is below 660, however, Fleetcor may designate your account as high-risk. In this case, you may pay steeper late fees.

When is my account considered high-risk?

If your account is deemed high-risk, you may be subject to additional fees. Fleetcor may deem your account to be high-risk if:

  • Your commercial credit score is below 520.
  • Your personal credit score is below 660.
  • There’s a drop in your credit score of 51 points or more within three months.
  • More than one late fee is assessed on your account in any 12-month period.
  • You’ve been late on payments for 30 or more days within any 12-month period.
  • Your bank doesn’t honor a payment you’ve made.

Fleetcor may adjust your fees, billing cycle, payment terms and credit limit if your account is high-risk. It may also add a 2% fee — what it calls a Credit Risk Assessment — per billing cycle.

Bottom line

If you purchase at least 300 gallons of fuel a month at BP stations, you could find this card’s strong rebates useful. If you spend less than that and want to make purchases outside of BP stations, however, a different card will likely suit you better.

If you don’t want a fleet card, consider a top-of-the-market small-business gas card to find the best fit for your business.
