Getting Money back from your Petrol

When filling up petrol for your car in Malaysia, it is possible to get some money back.
The rate of return can be increased with the combination of credit card (see my previous post on getting money back from your credit card).

BHP Petrol (previously known as BP)
You can accumulate points either using BHPs own card or using Genting's World Card.
Swipe your Genting card after your credit card - some of the stations require you to go to the counter.
If you accumulate the points using Genting's Worldcard, it is equivalent to cash
Points will expire after 3 yrs.
100 points = RM 1/-
Unfortunately the points can only be redeemed in Genting Highland.
Return rate is 1%.
Additional Note: You can accumulate more points for other participating merchants.

Shell
Points can be obtained using Bonuslink.
Very important note that you are required to Swipe your Bonuslink card 1st before your credit card (different from all other stations). Failing which you will not accumulate any points.
Points accumulation is 1 liter per point.
25% bonus for Vpower petrol
Note that the points expire after 3 yrs if not redeemed.
You can then use the points to redeem for:
Parkson RM50/- for 4800 points
Parkson RM10/- for 960 points.
Return rate is 0.53%
Additional Note: You can accumulate more points for other participating merchants.

Esso and Mobil
1 point for each RM1/- petrol
You can redeem RM 15/- with 1000 points
Swipe your Smiles card after your credit card.
Return rate is 1.5%
Note that you can also use the point for purchase of other items in the petrol station but the rate will be much lower.
Additional Note: Points can only be accumulated from Esso and Mobil station and only for petrol purchases.

Petronas
Points are accumulated using Realrewards.
Swipe your mesra/realrewards card after your credit card.
1 point for RM1/- petrol
Points don't expire.
I will update this later. Since the website is currently down.
Additional Note: You can accumulate more points for other participating merchants.

Caltex
At one time provides stamps but only redeemable for items in the shop.
