Carvertising campaign rewards drivers with gas

Mobility & Transport

Sellsumers can already earn cash in exchange for wrapping their cars in ads via sites like Australian cashURwheels, but recently we came across an example in Singapore that offers a slightly different twist. Through a new carvertising campaign from local shopping magazine Chic and Chevron’s Caltex gas brand, Singapore drivers can earn SGD 50 worth of gas. Consumers begin by registering their car with the GottaGetGas site, including license plate, model, colour and type of gas used. If selected, they’re then invited to get an advertiser-provided decal affixed to their car at the nearest Caltex station. In exchange, they’re rewarded with a SGD 50 GottaGetGas card, which can be used to buy gas at any Singapore Caltex station. Consumers are clearly motivated by cash, but a brand-sponsored reward like gas could be just as compelling while providing benefits for yet another partner in the equation. For the magazine, meanwhile, it’s a nice way to connect with readers while expanding advertisers’ options. A model to emulate on the roads near you…? Spotted by: Donna Tang
