HOW TO GUIDES - EARNING VELOCITY POINTS
USE A BP TEMPORARY CARD TO EARN VELOCITY POINTS WHEN YOU FILL UP
If you want to earn Velocity Points at a participating BP service station but don’t have a Velocity membership card, you can simply pick up and swipe a BP temporary card to ensure you don’t miss out on the Velocity Points you should be earning when filling up your car, or grabbing yourself a snack.
WHAT IS A BP TEMPORARY CARD?
The BP temporary card is pretty much exactly what it sounds like – a temporary card that can be swiped at the till in order to capture the Velocity Points earned on your fuel and in-store purchases at participating BP service stations.
If you don’t swipe either a BP temporary card or Velocity membership card at the time of purchase, you won’t earn Velocity Points, so it’s definitely worth picking one up if your Velocity card isn’t handy – as long as you remember to register and link within 30 days of first use.
NOT YET A MEMBER?
Once you’ve used a temporary card in-store, simply join and register online and you’ll receive your Velocity membership card in the mail within 3 weeks. You can continue to use your temporary card until it arrives, up to 30 days after your first use.
REGISTERING AND LINKING YOUR BP TEMPORARY CARD
To register your temporary card, first log in to your Velocity account, and select the “BP temporary card” tab on the left hand side of your screen.
You will now be prompted to register your card number.
Select “Need to register a new BP temporary card?” and enter your number in the box below, which will pre-populate with the first 5 digits of the card.
Hit the register button, and voila – your temporary card is now attached to your account!
If you already have a temporary card associated with your Velocity account, the new card will overwrite it.
You can continue to use the temporary card for 30 days, but if you don't have a Velocity membership card you can request one online.
And that’s it – your temporary card is now attached, a new card is on the way, and your Velocity Points will soon be landing in your account.
