Petron Announces Winners of "Free Fuel for a Year" Promo
If you need to travel long distances for your daily commute, it is essential to have enough fuel in your tank to get through the day. And it’s a huge windfall to get all the fuel that you need, free!
This is what Bulacan native Aidal B. Ladia is enjoying after being picked as the big winner of the National Capital Region (NCR) leg of Petron’s “Free Fuel For A Year” promo. She won P120,000.00 worth of free fuel loaded into her Petron Value Card (PVC)—which can be used at participating Petron stations nationwide to fuel up with Petron Blaze 100, Petron XCS, Petron Super Unleaded, Petron Xtra Unleaded, Petron Diesel Max or Petron Turbo Diesel. “I never won anything in my lifetime, not even in a raffle draw. I’m very happy, because this is my first time to win something,” said Ladia when asked about her immediate reaction after winning in Petron’s Free Fuel For A Year promo.
It started when a friend gave her a Petron Value Card (PVC), and that led to good things for her. “I’ve been using it for a year now. Prior to me winning, I’d always use my Petron Value Card every time I’d gas up at any Petron station. The rewards after certain points accumulated are very useful for motorists. There was one time that my friend pointed out the [Petron Free Fuel For a Year] promo while I was filling up the tank on my personal car [a ’94 Honda Civic ESi] at one Petron station, free gas for one year. So I registered via text message, filled up the necessary details, and received confirmation via text message. I’ve been registered for two months already and one day someone from Petron called me up while I was in the office, claiming that I will get a registered mail from Petron confirming that I was the promo winner.”
Ladia’s use of the PVC was borne out of a loyalty to Petron fuels and one Petron station. “Ever since I got my Petron Value Card, I’ve always been going to Petron— including the station I frequent. Perfect Line Petron was recommended to me by my Lagro-based boss. I live in Bulacan, but I work in Makati, so it’s a big help. Petron fuels, they get me further every time I’d put their fuels in my tank.”
There are four other grand prize winners of the Petron “Free Fuel for a Year” promo, each of whom will receive P120,000-worth of free fuel. Representing the diffierent regions in the country, the winners are: Nelson C. de la Cruz for North Luzon, Jeonard P. Penalba for South Luzon, Cherry H. Palomo for the Visayas, and Jimmy L. Bastes for Mindanao.
