42-year old Transportation sub-contractor, Vijakumar S/O Navasivayam, thanked his lucky stars twice as he hit the jackpot in the Caltex Lucky Star Promotion.
More than 1.3 million lucky draw coupons were issued during the two-month promotion. With every fuel inclusive purchase of $30 nett, customers were given a lucky draw coupon and a set of four winning Lucky Numbers.
If their slip had four Lucky Stars, or any permutation of their vehicle's registration number, they could win $100 or $500 StarCash respectively, or $1,000 StarCash if their Lucky Numbers had matched up exactly to that of their car.
Vijakumar could hardly believe his luck when he received the call from Chevron, informing him that he had won the brand new BMW. Vijakumar had first won $100 StarCash from the Caltex Beach Road station, and remarkably, the same promotion coupon won him the car.
"This is the happiest moment in my life and I am still in shock that I have won the grand prize. As a truck driver, I frequently refuel at Caltex as it offers the best deal for my work, especially with the Caltex StarCard. When I shared the news with my family, they were ecstatic and squealed in delight. My wife even pinched herself to make sure she wasn't dreaming! Winning this car has changed our lives,” said Vijakumar.
While it would have been easy to swop his lorry for the car, Vijakumar plans to sell it to invest in his children's future. The proud father of four children, aged six to 14, lives with his wife in Cantonment Road. They will use the money to support their children's academic aspirations in local education institutions.
From now till the 29th October 2013, there are more opportunities for customers to win $100 worth of StarCash instantly with the new Caltex Match & Win promotion on the Caltex Singapore Facebook page. In addition, every participant who takes part in this promotion will stand a chance to win $500 worth of Caltex StarCash in a lucky draw.
