Liquid Barcodes


A First for the UAE

Paula Thomas, Chief Content Officer, Liquid Barcodes


ADNOC Distribution is the UAE’s leading operator of retail fuel service stations with a footprint of over 400 stations, and in fact is the only retail fuel operator in the capital city Abu Dhabi, so the launch of ADNOC Rewards was a welcome milestone, becoming the country’s first loyalty programme across fuel and convenience purchases.

Originally launched in November 2019, the Rewards programme began with a simple “Fuel Up and Fly Off” promotion, offering members the chance to win roundtrip tickets with Etihad Airways, and successfully signed up over 750,000 members, “making it one of the fastest growing and popular loyalty programs in the country.” The success of the digital programme follows the announcement of the brand as the number one retail brand in the region in the Forbes Middle East Top 100 Companies 2020, so here is a summary of how the programme has been built and how it’s designed to benefit customers.

Some impressive statistics across ADNOC’s network of over 400 stations

How Does It Work:

  1. The programme is digital (only). The app is free to download and the programme is free to join. Customers then earn loyalty points on every purchase of both fuel and non-fuel products.
  2. Every dirham (approx 23 US cent) spent on fuel earns one point, with higher grade ‘plus’ fuels earning the member 2 points per dirham. Spend in the “Oasis” convenience stores, car washing and on other premium services and fuel earn 3 points per dirham spent.
  3. All members earn a 25% bonus if they pay using the wallet functionality within the app.
  4. A QR code within the app is used to identify members at the time of purchase, although the digital government ID card known as the “Emirates ID” is also linked to the members account securely, so it can also be used.
  5. A “family account” feature allows members of the same family to pool their points, with the rewards earned by the main family member.
  6. Points can be redeemed on non-fuel products and services, such as car wash, lube change, or offers from the Oasis convenience store, chosen from the rewards catalog within the mobile app. They can also be exchanged with Etihad Airways points.
  7. ADNOC Rewards points are valid for two years.

Programme Launch Offers

  1. New users/members are being awarded 500 bonus points for joining while existing ADNOC app users will receive points for all their purchases made through wallet during the previous month.
  2. Uniquely, new members also receive a complimentary interior car sanitization when they complete their first transaction – proving that health and safety are the key priority for customers currently, replacing the traditional focus on speed and convenience.
  3. A partnership with McDonald’s also means that all members of the ADNOC Rewards app can enjoy a free Apple Pie with the purchase of selected meal deals when showing the Rewards QR code at any outlet.

Future Features

While ADNOC is clearly keeping things simple for now, the launch press release does promise the announcement of “partners from a number of leading brands across a range of sectors” so we will of course be watching and reporting as the country’s first fuel and convenience loyalty programme evolves.
