Interesting. I wonder if business structure and industry matter? My ABN is attached to an ACN but when I first applied it was fairly new - enough for them to want a $10,000 bank guarantee.Not very. Have had for several years.
It's a business only relationship at this stage - all fuel purchased on your BP credit account gets you Qantas points which are credited when the invoice is paid. You cannot get points as a consumer or on one off transactions until the ACCC approves the partnership.((If a company has 2 directors, both have to sign.))
And for this, it was not like the previous relationship, we can't present our QFF cards at the EFTPOS and earn points, have present the BP app and the points collect within BP, and then is then transferred to QFF in a block.
I have no interest is this, if this is the case, too complicated!
OT: Will earn my QFF points via a monthly news.com.au subscription from my QTMC.
Woolworths Petrol is supplied by Caltex. Also, Caltex now allows Amex without a surcharge (if it's a Calstores operated site).both 7-11 and a couple of my independents allow Amex without extra merchant fee. This is important - because the Amex business card records the transaction such that it’s valid for aTO purposes.
BP is more expensive even with QF points
Diesel is diesel. Nothing special. But I’ve always had a suspicion that Woolies petrol is not “proper” petrol (even though the legal definition in AUS gives wide latitude to what can be in “petrol”)
I don’t think I’ll drive the extra miles in order to find one. Shopping around for cheapest petrol +|- other benefits is usually not cost effective.Sounds like a franchise then - you'd need to find a Calstores (Caltex company owned) site to get free Amex. Foodary sites are always company owned.
Correct. You have to apply for BP Plus, and Qantas Business Rewards. You must have an ABN, and it's a bit of a crapshoot whether you even get accepted. They have a massive backlog in applications, so they're taking well over two weeks to process them at present.Just catching up on this.
Looking at the BP website it appears their new reward scheme with Qantas is only for business operators, is that right?
$30,000 is by the looks of it the minimum credit limit, as that's what I got given too (despite only getting $5,000 from Caltex).Was approved yesterday for my small business (with small emphasized in my application via truthful answers to their questions on usual monthly spend, and what credit limit I might like). HOWEVER, just logged in today and saw they've approved me with a credit limit of $30,000. For monthly fuel! Cant seem to reduce my limit (to something like $300) online, so I've lodged a request with them, and also a please explain…hoping its a fat fingers typo during their clearing of the applications backlog. So if you do get approved, perhaps check the credit limit they've given you...
60 day lag according to program terms.Paid a bill a few days ago but nothing in QBR yet.
Unfortunately the per card limits are per transaction, doesn't really help when they can just skip off to another BP. Still, just means you need to protect your PIN.30k limit here too..
Can edit and set per card limits and unusual activity alerts to avoid full exposure.
Alongside unusual activity alerts and locking down the hours the card can be used, per card limits seem like an effective tool. I'm receiving emailed receipts pretty much as soon as the hose is returned to the pump.Unfortunately the per card limits are per transaction, doesn't really help when they can just skip off to another BP.
