    BP terminates Velocity Agreement effective 30 June 2017 - Velocity sues

    It seems BP is trying to get out of its marriage with Velocity early and VA is not happy about it, filing a claim in the Queensland Supreme Court:

    File Summary

    Some details here:

    http://apps.courts.qld.gov.au/esearc...&edocsno=74248

    They mediated twice with a retired High Court judge and couldn't resolve their differences, so are off to Court.

    Not entirely surprising given BP's deal with Woolworths.

    Thanks for the tip.
    Will keep making sure to ask each time I visit a BP to buy things, or more so, OTR in South Aust.

    i gather they will be repainting all the signs anyway
    I am more annoyed that the Woolworths petrol stations will be converting to BP, which means their prices will be going up by 7 cents a litre, at least.
    (and thats not taking into account the 4c woolworths discounts)> I dunno what its like in other areas, but BP charge way more than everyone else around here.

    For me BP is just about the cheapest I can get without going right out of my way. Combine that with the velocity pts & no surcharge for AMEX and they are my go to station. I fill up a couple of times a week with them. Will be disappointing when the Velocity deal is no more.

    Quite the opposite experience here - getting Velocity points is about the only "plus" for us in fuelling up at BP. Their prices are usually well above the other fuel retailers in the area, and of the 5 BPs that are easily accessible to us (near home or on the way to/from work), 4 have an AMEX surcharge.

    This question seems to be fairly regularly canvassed on this forum and there appears to be no defined pattern, some areas BP are cheap, some they are more expensive.

    Re: BP terminates Velocity Agreement effective 30 June 2017 - Velocity sues

    I wonder if it's because the affiliation wasn't the revenue generating bonanza BP thought it would be. Perhaps it couldn't offset the fact that they charge way above what the station across the street charges. Or the fact that half the time your Velocity card wouldn't work in their outdated POS systems. Or could it be their dumb TV promos weren't that great. Or that the points took forever to appear.

    Or............should I keep going?

    BP is very inconsistent here in Sydney - there's one nearby which is cheap, so I've ended up using it reasonably frequently. But more often than not BP are the second most expensive to Shell/Coles Express. I've stopped collecting the Coles fuel vouchers because they're more than 4c more expensive 99% of the time.
