BP

Postby MrMosby » Sat Feb 02, 2013 11:08 am

Has anyone been having issues at BP using their card lately? I've been to three in Indiana/Ohio (around Indianpolis and Cincinnati) and they wouldn't process my card.

I immediately called Amex and they said they never even had a charge attempt. The third time it happened I drove across the street to a Speedway and it worked.

The BP's all said they accepted American Express... something seems fishy.

Why yes in fact it does have an EMV chip on it if that's what you're asking.

Ah there appears to be a problem with BP USA accepting US Amex chipped cards at the moment. (My UK Platinum works fine). There is a post about it on flyertalk. Amex is looking into it.
