A friend on facebook bought a Ford Escape. I haven’t told them that I bought a Porsche and haven’t used it until now. (Petron’s promo is heaven sent.)
Shell this time is facing stiff competition as Petron has its own promo that will attract little boys in the backseat and will confuse dads like me on whether to fill up from the one gas station or the other.
Shell has been giving away Ferrari merchandise for years and this year has Ferrari Lego items that will be available only until November 30. Anyone with a P1500 receipt (one-time purchase or accumulated) can claim one of its six (6) Ferrari Lego collectibles or one of three (3) figures. Price range is P140-180 depending on the fuel (or oil product) variant that was availed. I already got the F1 model and has been in the hands of Marcus.
On the other hand, Petron has a cheaper deal. For just P1000 (also one-time purchase or accumulated), anyone can already get scale models of Porsche cars for only P180 each. What makes it more attractive is that their promo runs until January 31, 2013. I won’t be surprised therefore if Shell will either extend theirs or will sooner sell the Ferrari Legos at a marked down price just like what it did with their other Ferrari merchandise years ago.
I already got the Porsche Cayman but has kept it away from my son as I made a deal with him that he should improve on his writing subject or forget about getting another Ferrari or Porsche. (Shhh. It’s 1045 AM and he just woke up. Got to play.)
