Jiffy Lube Rewards Program Delivers Exceptional Vehicle Maintenance Value
HOUSTON, August 11, 2009 - Jiffy Lube® today announced the launch of Jiffy Lube Rewards℠, a new program that reinforces the company's appreciation of customers who rely on Jiffy Lube for their vehicle maintenance needs. The program provides added value and cost savings to drivers who want to properly maintain their vehicle. Customers who buy two Jiffy Lube Signature Service® Oil Changes for the same vehicle within six months earn 50 percent off their third Jiffy Lube Signature Service® Oil Change for the same vehicle.
Fast, Easy and Convenient
Customers can sign up at their local Jiffy Lube service center or online at www.JiffyLubeRewards.com. There are no cards, fees or hassles to participate, and Jiffy Lube automatically tracks each purchase and redeems rewards when they are earned. Visit www.JiffyLubeRewards.com for more information including a complete list of participating locations.
According to a recent Jiffy Lube International survey, nearly 20 percent of Americans are cutting back on the frequency of vehicle maintenance services to save money. However, maintenance is important to protecting both the short-term performance and long-term value of a vehicle. Jiffy Lube Rewards is designed to provide more value to customers who choose Jiffy Lube to care for their vehicle. Nearly all Jiffy Lube service centers nationwide are participating in the program.
Driving Home the Savings
The popular Jiffy Lube Signature Service® Oil Change is more than just a regular oil change; it's a preventive maintenance program that enhances the reliability and longevity of a vehicle. It includes a thorough inspection and set of services, including: checking and topping off vital fluids, replacing the oil filter and inspecting the tire pressure, wiper blades, and the engine air filtration system. With more than 92 percent of motorists driving under severe driving conditions1, it's more important than ever for drivers to take proper care of their vehicle to help keep it running smoothly and preserve its value.
