Last week, Qantas officially launched its partnership with BP. It allows Qantas Frequent Flyer members earn 1-2 points per $ spent on purchases at BP (depending on the type of fuel).

Now, first bonus points—or, rather, Status Credits—promotion has launched and it’s an easy win.

Current Qantas-BP bonus offer

You can earn 10 bonus Status Credits (SCs) when you join BP Rewards and choose to earn Qantas Points. Plus, you can earn an extra 10 bonus SCs per 1,000 Qantas Points earned at BP. This offer ends on 30 June.

How to take advantage of this offer

This offer is split into two parts.

  3. Earn the regular 1-2 Qantas Points per $ spent on fuel and wait 7 days for points to land in your account

Assuming a price of $1.30/litre of regular unleaded fuel, you’ll need to spend ~$3,076 on fuel over the next three months to earn the 40 additional SCs. That’s over $250/week, which is quite unrealistic for most people.

Summing up

It’s great to see Qantas being creative by offering bonus Status Credits on purchases at BP during COVID-19.

However, given that people will be spending less on petrol during this period and the high requirement to unlock the 40 additional Status Credits, it’s likely that most people will opt to earn just the bonus 10 Status Credits for joining BP Rewards.
