Updated Feb 10, 2023 | Same topic: Automotive Industry Updates

This partnership between the two enters its fourth year.

Until November 2023, holders of EastWest bank’s Mastercard and Visa credit cards, debit cards, and Visa prepaid cards are entitled to fuel discounts from Unioil.

Specifically, EastWest cardholders can enjoy up to Php 4.00 off per liter on Gasoline, and Php 2.50 off per liter on Diesel in Unioil branches where card transactions are available.  

Do note though that the said discounts do have a limit. One cardholder gets a maximum of three transactions, with an accumulative total of 80 liters per day for one EastWest bank cardholder. Regardless though, 80 liters is more than enough for most motorists. 

These discounts for EastWest bank card holders come via the renewed partnership between the said bank and Unioil. This was started way back in 2019 and was renewed for the fourth time this year.  

According to EastWest Bank First Vice President and Credit Cards Business Head Aylwin Tamayo, this partnership is a way for both entities to compete effectively against the dominant industry giants. The exclusive Unioil discounts, in particular, have made their cards more attractive as it now covers a wide variety of customer needs. This, however, is just the start, and we can expect more “groundbreaking campaigns with Unioil.” 

Unioil Vice President of Retail Eduardo Pasion added that to grow further, they needed a partner that shows an equal drive. Beyond that, they also sought a partner who understood the “daily struggle of motorists.” EastWest Bank was the right choice to work with in this case.

He then further stated his appreciation for the trust which EastWest has placed in Unioil, and has expressed his desire for a longer partnership with the said bank.  

EastWest Bank Vice President & Head Officer in Charge for Bank Marketing and Corporate Communications Joyce Lucio also added that EastWest shares a common goal with Unioil in providing customers services that are most relevant to the times. 

The fuel discounts are timely because oil prices have been observed to be particularly volatile since 2022. Discounts of course, are always on the lookout from motorists, and so might cause their card products to become more attractive to the aforementioned demographic.  

On top of the discounts, note that Unioil as of September 2017, was the first fuel retail station in the country to have sold Euro5-compliant fuels. This type of fuel is more environmentally friendly and can produce fewer emissions compared to other fuels.
