It took a while, but we finally have them. As someone who pays close attention to kiddie toys (since my son is now at that age), I got rather excited to see a complete lineup of Cars / Cars 2 toys from the “Dream Series” of Tomica. I first saw these in Hong Kong, and about 5 months later, they’re finally here. Toy Kingdom (in SM Malls), Metro, Rustan’s … they all have it.
Me: We need to gas up at Shell. They have a promo.
Wife: What promo?
Me: They have LEGO cars if you put gas.
Me: Would you rather I do drugs?
(driving after several minutes to Shell)
Wife: Ang tagal! mag drugs ka na lang!
I rarely give in to marketing promos. Caltex is my usual choice for gasoline, well, just because. But this move of Shell to allow you to buy one of six Ferrari LEGO cars (and a set of Minifigs) if you spend an accumulated amount of PHP 1,500 was too strong to resist.
So here’s how the promo goes:
– you need to spend an accumulated amount of PHP 1,500 to buy one Ferrari LEGO car. So if you spend, say PHP 3,000 on gas you can buy two. if you have two receipts worth PHP 750 each, you can buy one car.
– the receipts should only come from one Shell branch. You can’t combine receipts from different branches. This also means that you can only claim the LEGO Ferrari car / Minifigs from the same branch at the convenience store counter.
– the cars and Minifigs (it’s a set of 3) cost PHP 180.00. If you load up on V-Power, cost shoots down to PHP 140.00
There you go! Happy building!
