The new BP credit card programs will launch in the second quarter of 2015 and will include the BP private-label credit card and co-branded options for qualifying customers, which provides additional card utility as it can be used for purchases at over 7,000 BP locations as well as other retail locations.

This transaction will grow Synchrony Financial’s presence in the segment, with a renowned provider of fuel products for over a century.”
