Oil Companies Kick Off Summer Promotions

HOUSTON/FAIRFAX, Va. -- ConocoPhillips is uniting all three of its U.S. marketing gasoline brands for a promotion designed to increase personal gas card applications and help drive sales at the pump. In alliance with Citibank and Hasbro, "The Game of Life $500,000 Giveaway" is scheduled to run Aug. 1 to Sept. 30 at more than 12,000 Phillips 66 and Conoco locations. Over 16,000 cash and gas prizes totaling $500,000 will be awarded.

Consumers who are approved for a Phillips 66, Conoco or 76 personal gas card will receive a scratch-off game card for chance to win up to $10,000, $5,000 or $1,000 in cash, or $25 in gas. Additionally, they will receive a $20 statement of credit after their first use of the card. Customers who fill up eight gallons or more of gasoline can also receive a scratch-off game card for a chance to win the same prizes.

"This marketing program is a great example of the continuation of our successful alliance with Citibank and their commitment to grow our credit card portfolio beyond pre-merger levels," said Alistair Donald, manager of Credit Card Enterprise. "The Game of Life $500,000 Giveaway" is ConocoPhillips' first promotion connected with its U.S. gasoline marketing campaign, "Life Happens between Empty and Full."
