Petro Canada Carwash Season Pass – Commentary

I recently saw this sign at a Petro-Canada car wash in Mississauga – Photo:

Caption: Car Wash Season Pass - Get a FREE Gift Card Holder With Purchase

I’m confused here.

Do they actually think that people will be so excited to get a free “Gift Card Holder” that it would change their decision on whether or not to make the purchase? Every gift card I have purchased, from Home Depot to The Body Shop comes in a nice little folding cardboard wrapper.

I find it incredibly presumptuous of them to imply that people are this stupid. It’s even worse that they wasted time, energy and raw materials to make signs like this. It’s on par with all the junk mail that Bell Canada, which is the Worst Company in Canada, sends out. Hopefully this sign the making of Petro employees before they got bought out, as I have more respect for Suncor.

Suncor / Petro-Canada, please stop insulting our intelligence and find better ways to add value. You can do this be eliminating the rail / soft cloth car washes and replacing them all with non-rail, truly touch-free car washes. Thank you.

    These car wash passes are a rip off. Think about it, you are forced to wash your car every day for 90 days or else you loose what ever unused car washes are left on the card. What an idiotic deal.

      @Jake, well I don’t know if that’s true, but I think the “getting the value for the money” mentality is why Petro Canada’s car washes always seem to have a long lineup. I never go to them unless I have a gift card or petro points, etc to use.
