Instead, BP has launched its own customer scheme called BPme Rewards. But Nectar fans need not worry, because the loyalty programme is now available at participating Esso sites. Customers will earn one Nectar point for every litre of Esso fuel, or two for every pound spent in the shop.
BP customers can no longer receive or redeem Nectar points. Having downloaded a BPMe app, customers now earn one point for every litre of fuel, two points for Ultimate fuel, and one point for every pound spent in the shop or the car wash.
The process will be familiar to Nectar customers, with 200 points equating to a £1 off fuel, although points can be exchanged for products or gift vouchers. You’ll receive 250 points just for registering a BPme card.
Points mean prizes
Amazon and M&S gift cards are available, along with a bewildering array of products from the gift catalogue. Collect 2,300 points for a Disney Princess Cinderella, or 1,690 for a motorised construction vehicle.
Alternatively, you can add cash to the mix to reduce the number of points required for a gift. For example, a thermal mug will set you back £4.80 plus 545 points, if you’re not prepared to wait until you’ve collected 1,360 points.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, a Black & Decker drill is worth 8,170 points or 3,265 points plus £26.50.
The BPme app can also be used to pay for fuel, to manage your receipts and to find the nearest BP forecourt.
A BP spokesperson said: “We had participated with Nectar for a number of years.
“With BPMe Rewards we took the opportunity to develop our own loyalty scheme that allows our customers to both earn and spend rewards in our stores and with selected partners.”
