ONE CARD, MANY BENEFITS
BP’s customers are set to benefit with the announcement that Countdown and AA Smartfuel are joining forces.
3.5 million Onecard, AA Smartfuel cardholders and AA members will now have access to exclusive Onecard Club prices at Countdown, as well as fuel savings at BP.
Customers can also choose whether to earn Onecard Rewards vouchers through Countdown or accumulate additional fuel savings through AA Smartfuel.
BP Oil New Zealand General Manager of Retail Debi Boffa says it is “great news” that the AA Smartfuel and Countdown partnership delivers customers with benefits on one combined card, because it’s convenient and it gives consumers more choice.
“We are constantly looking for new ways to add more value for our customers and to give them a reason to choose BP over anyone else,” she says.
“Our strong AA Smartfuel partnership is one of those reasons.”
AA Smartfuel Director Ian Sutcliffe says New Zealanders’ wallets will benefit significantly with Countdown joining the AA Smartfuel programme.
“Bringing Countdown on board as a retail partner marks a significant milestone for consumers as we broaden our network to over 1500 retail outlets around the country,” he says.
“Countdown is a major addition to the family of participating retailers and it’s a significant boost for consumers to be able to accumulate savings on a big weekly spend like supermarket shopping.”
While many members will begin to see their cards appear in the mail later this week, a number of cardholders will still need to collect their new card from BP stores and transition their existing balance across.
“We are deploying extra staff at more than 70 of our stores to assist customers with any questions they may have and to help with activating new cards,” Boffa says.
New cards will be available for collection at BP from 10 October.
