CornerStone Market BP - #1 BP Rewards Site in the USA

EMPORIA, VA. — BP North America just announced the #1 BP Rewards site in the USA and it is right here in Emporia – CornerStone Market BP and Subway.  The award was based on average registrations per month in 2016.   CornerStone Market BP and Subway is located at 501 W. Atlantic Street is the brainchild of Slate and Spivey of Emporia and Little Oil Company of Richmond.  Both companies are third generation family businesses who both diversified with the partnership at CornerStone as neither have been in the c-store or fast food business in the last 20 years.    For the year, CornerStone Market BP averaged 64 BP Rewards registrations per month with most all registrations by our residents of Emporia/Greensville.  Year-to-date registrations topped 384 by Dec. 31 saving thousands of dollars for the reward users. 

To continue the momentum from 2016, CornerStone Market BP will be having a BP Rewards Registration Event at the store this Friday, March 31st from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM with big savings for all who participate.  There will be employees at the dispensers explaining the promotion and giving immediate savings on gas to lower your price to under $1.8990 if you buy a minimum of 12 gallons.  An additional employee will be registering people in the store to help save you the time and effort of registering at home.  The registration takes less than a minute providing ongoing savings through BP Rewards on each fill-up.  CornerStone Market BP hopes to break their one day record for registrations with this promotion with new enrollments and re-enrolling current BP Rewards members.  The goal for the day is to save locals over $1,000 or more in gas or diesel on Friday.

BP REWARDS REGISTRATION EVENT 3.31.17,

9:00 AM - 6:00 PM - CORNERSTONE MARKET BP

“We are so pleased that our community has embraced saving 15¢-40¢ off the pump price on each fill-up depending on the specific purchase of the Reward user” says Clint Slate, one of the CornerStone owners.  “With an average purchase of 12 gallons of gas or diesel purchased, the average savings is 19¢ per gallon on each fill-up for a period of 90 days during the introductory period.  For people driving large vehicles that take 20 gallons on a fill-up, customers can save up to 38¢ per gallon on a maximum fill-up of 20 gallons.  That is not 38¢ off the purchase but 38¢ off PER GALLON giving a 20-gallon fill-up savings of $7.60 on one fill-up.  Once the introductory period is up, there will always be 10¢ a gallon for each $100 purchased.  As one customer said, “I can get a free Subway sandwich with my savings on each fill-up.”

During the month of December alone, 28% of all the fuel gallons sold at CornerStone Market BP were purchased by members of the BP Rewards program.  When asked what this milestone tells customers about CornerStone Market BP, Barry Grizzard Sales Manager of Little Oil Company says, "It proves that we put our customers first in trying to save them money on every trip to CornerStone Market BP, and that we will give the best customer service to all of our valued customers by providing the BP Rewards program and the ease to get into it." he explained.

The store's enrollment process for the rewards program is what sets it apart, Grizzard believes.  While any customer can go online and register for the BP Rewards program, CornerStone Market BP employees have personally enrolled every interested customer as asked via the store's computer as led by store manager Teresa Simmons. The registration is tied to a customer's phone number, which is given at the time of enrollment so another loyalty card is not needed.  "The personal touch with [enrollment] is the No. 1 way this program has been successful and led to us being #1 in the country," Grizzard says.  "Many people have the best intentions to enroll at a later time, but getting it done on the spot is the best way to get it done."

Monthly, CornerStone Market lines up employees and places them at the fuel pumps for a big event for the personal explanation of the program.  While at the pumps, employees engage with customers and ask for permission to help save them money on their fuel purchase that day.  With customers' consent, employees use a preprogrammed demo BP Rewards loyalty number to offer an on-the-spot discount for their fill-up without a prior purchase needed.  The discount can be any number of cents off per gallon based on the prior customer’s purchase.  These savings average 25¢ per gallon.  While filling up, employees take those few minutes to explain the BP Rewards program and encourage the customer to enroll.  If he or she would like to enroll, all they have to do is provide a personal phone number or 10-digit number to tie to their account for instant enrollment.  Employees then engage with the next customer and reset the preprogrammed BP Rewards loyalty number which gives out a different cents-off-per-gallon discount each time during the promotion.

Under the BP Rewards program, CornerStone Market BP Rewards members can:

  • Apply rewards toward purchases of up to 20 gallons per fill-up;
  • Use any form of payment to take advantage of the BP Rewards savings - a corporate or consumer credit card, debit card, or use with cash in-store to pay for the product all work;
  • Share their BP Rewards number with more than one person if the customer wants;
  • Even after the 90-day introductory promotion period, there will always be a rewards on every purchase but re-enrollment will extend the 90 day promotion period.

When members use a fuel dispenser at CornerStone Market BP, the screen prompts them with their current rewards balance and asks if they would like to use their accrued rewards now or later.  "The reason for this is you would like to maximize your purchase to get as many of the 20 gallons allowed under the program with the current fill, or postpone your rewards to another fill while continuing to grow the rewards on each fill," Chris Slate, an owner explains.   "Some people like to keep earning rewards until a fill-up only costs 1¢ per gallon for up to 20 gallons."
