MileagePlus members can now earn and spend miles on gas
United Airlines and BP team up to offer drivers a better deal for filling up.
Fancy something for nothing?
That’s exactly what’s being offered following a new partnership between two global names.
United Airlines and leading fuel company BP have teamed up to offer their members air miles for filling up at the gas station.
MileagePlus and BP Driver Rewards members can earn between one and three miles per gallon by simply filling their vehicles with fuel purchased at participating BP stations.
Members will also have the option to use their miles to purchase gasoline and save 50 cents per gallon.
If it’s miles you’re after, you’ll get one mile for every gallon of gas bought, two miles for a gallon bought with a linked credit or debit card, or three miles for a gallon of premium gas bought with a linked card.
But don’t pack your bags just yet, as the miles earned from this deal are unlikely to buy you your next flight anytime soon.
So think of this more as a long-term deal whereby you’re getting a little extra for something you have to do anyway.
Having said that, every penny counts.
And this is just the latest of a whole host of benefits for MileagePlus members, as the airline’s travel loyalty program has been consistently voted the best for 14 years in a row.
To earn the most from the deal and get an extra 200 bonus miles, MileagePlus members will have to register for BP Driver Rewards, link the accounts and then add a credit or debit card.
If, however, you’re a BP Driver Rewards member, you can sign up for the United Airlines program to get the same deal.
