$5000 free fuel up for grabs from Waitomo

3 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineApril 24, 2020

Waikato-based fuel supplier Waitomo is offering $5000 in free fuel to Kiwis who download and use the company‘s new app, which offers contactless payment options at unmanned Waitomo fuel stops.

Until 11.59pm Sunday night, 26 April, every Kiwi who downloads and registers to use the app and tags in their lockdown bubble family and friends on Facebook will go in the draw to win a national prize of $1000 free fuel. There are also eight regional prizes of $500 to be won (in every region where Waitomo operates).

“Kiwis all over the country have had their livelihoods, their work, their family lives and their health impacted by the Covid-19 crisis. It‘s been bloody tough for most of us, but how the country has responded to the crisis has to make you proud to be a Kiwi too,” said Waitomo Group managing director Jimmy Ormsby.

“By giving back to some of the families and whanau doing it tough right now, we want to help get some Kiwis back on their feet too as we move into alert level 3. Much-needed money back in their pockets to spend on other necessities like food, power and rent.

“Our contactless payment option via the new Waitomo app, along with our unmanned 24/7 Fuel Stops, means Kiwis can fuel up with minimal contact with other people and surfaces. It‘s a no-brainer as far as taking further steps to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19 goes.”

 The winners will be announced on the Waitomo Group Facebook page on Monday 27 April.

Available for download on the Apple or Google app stores, the Waitomo app features:

  • Contactless payment from your vehicle – link a card, select your pump and fuel grade from your vehicle and get pumping.

  • Earn koha the more you spend – each time you spend $20 or more you‘ll unlock the chance to spin to win, and by banking every buck you spend in a calendar month to reach $150, you‘ll unlock a scratchie for your chance to win even more.

  • Share the love with gifting – gift Waitomo moolah to your friends and whanau in need of a tank top-up (like an e-gift card).

  • Find your nearest Waitomo – a map or list view showing Waitomo‘s expanding network of Fuel Stops available for paying from your vehicle.
