I’m a little confused as to whether you can earn Velocity points topping up your Opal at BP in Sydney.
A few months ago I did it once and got points on it, so assumed it would still be the same today.
Today, the guy at the counter said “you don’t get points on Opal top up”. I said, “Really? It worked for me last time.” He shrugged and was like “ok, try it.”
So I did. But I don’t know whether it actually worked. Does anyone know if there’s supposed to be that shows on the receipt?
I’m also thinking that it might be one of those things that the staff are instructed to not allow, but the system allows it if the card is swiped.
I’m also thinking.. even if it’s not supposed to be allowed, the itemised tax invoice says “Dial Time Phone Card” 5x $1.00 as opposed to an Opal top up. A bit strange. But because it’s not actually an opal top up on the receipt, it should probably work?
Thanks in advance
So I got an email yesterday saying that I’ve earned points for my transaction at BP – and that is the only transaction I’ve made. So it definitely worked.
However, as I mentioned above in my original post, the itemised tax invoice I received says “Dial Time Phone Card” 5 @ $1.00 each instead of an Opal Top Up, so it still doesn’t actually answer the question as to whether Opal Top Ups usually earn you points.
I only ever recharge my Opal card at my local BP and always receive points. I swipe my Velocity Card then pay with my Plat Edge and always ask for the receipts which will show points earn. I need to top up shortly so will report back if anything has changed.
