Petron Corporation has its very own rewards card which has been around for years. The aptly named ‘Petron Value Card’ allows road users like you and me to earn points whenever we gas up at participating Petron stations nationwide. These hard-earned accumulated points can then be redeemed either to buy even more gas or pay for other Petron items.
Great! But how can you check how many points you’ve already earned? These are your 4 options.
SMS | Text BAL <space> 16-digit PVC number and send it to 0917-5671111
E-MAIL | Send BAL <space> 16-digit PVC number and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
PETRON STATION | Next time you visit a Petron station, show your PVC to the attendant so he/she can check your points.
SMARTPHONE APP | Download the Petron app on Android or iOS and see your PVC points, check your transaction history, find the nearest Petron station, and see the latest deals you can score. But that’s IF or WHEN the app works which has been quite buggy in recent months.
If you don’t have one yet, you can get your very own Petron Value Card (PVC) at any participating service station. Cards are sold for only P50 each. Or you can join events such as the Petron x FlatOut Race Series (FORS) and get one for free.
Once you get your hands on one, register it by texting REG <space> 16-digit PVC number <space> FirstName/MI/LastName <space> Birthday(MM/DD/YYYY) and send it to 0917-5671111. This will automatically earn you 2 bonus points.
(Ex. REG 7828xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx John/S/Cruz 8/15/1984 and SEND to 0917-5671111.)
Then, all you need to do is visit a Petron station and fill up. Points are earned based on the amount of fuel, LPG, or lubes you purchase detailed in the link. Each point has a value of P1 and if you accumulate enough, it can be redeemed to pay for fuel, lubricants, or any Petron products.
Aside from points, your PVC card also gets you Free Towing, Roadside Assistance, and Personal Accident Insurance among other things. It can also be used to avail special deals and discount from partner shops, restaurants, and hotels. (READ: Deals and discounts you can score with a Petron Value Card)
