Getting an oil change is about as basic as you can get when it comes to keeping your car running. During these upcoming months of heavy travel (did someone say beach?), it is even more important to keep on top of car maintenance. Being stranded is never fun, but being stranded 400 miles from home? Ugh. Jiffy Lube is nationwide and so convenient. I love that I can just stop in, no appointment necessary, and am usually out of there within an hour.
Here’s a great way to incorporate a Jiffy Lube gift card into an even more fabulous Father’s Day gift–have your kids make a card that says that you (or your driving teenager) will take the car for him! This will give him a bit of well-deserved free time on his special day (or any other day!).
From Jiffy Lube:
According to the survey, more than 1/3 of American drivers reveal they’ve humanized their relationships with their vehicle by providing words of encouragement, doling out compliments, and apologizing or saying thanks. Almost half of the drivers surveyed have thanked their cars for a job well done and nearly a third has apologized to their vehicles – be it for driving recklessly or getting into an accident.
Drivers are holding onto their vehicles longer – nearly nine-out-of-10 drivers plan to keep their vehicles as long as possible, meaning they need better and easier ways to protect their vehicle’s life.
Regular preventive maintenance is the best way to keep a vehicle running for years to come – and the Jiffy Lube Gift Card can help. It can be a great Father’s Day gift, be it standalone or as part of a gift basket, to help make dad’s errands easier and to help him preserve the value and longevity of his vehicle.
It can be redeemed for the popular Jiffy Lube Signature Service® Oil Change, which provides drivers with much more than just an oil and filter change. The service includes changing, inspecting, checking/filling and cleaning key vehicle parts and fluids and offers drivers a quick and convenient way to maintain their vehicle.
A Jiffy Lube Gift Card can be loaded with any dollar amount from $5 to $300 and can be redeemed toward any Jiffy Lube preventive maintenance service including the popular Jiffy Lube Signature Service® Oil Change.
The card has no inactivity fees or expiration date and it’s available for purchase at www.jiffylube.com or in-store.
