MANILA, Philippines - Independent oil player Flying V has partnered with the Philippine Postal Corp. (PhlPost) for fuel and lubricant discounts in retail stations.
The oil company said the partnership covers incentives to be given to new PhlPost cardholders under the Postal ID (PID) Privilege Card Program.
Under this partnership, each PID cardholder will be entitled to P1 per liter discount for every purchase of gasoline and diesel, and P5 per liter price cut for every purchase of lubricants and/or P1 discount per 200 ml of lubricants purchased.
Flying V started the discount program in 57 retail stations in Metro Manila on Aug. 16. The company targets to roll out the promo in the entire Luzon by Sept. 1, while Visayas and Mindanao would follow immediately.
The partnership is part of PhlPost’s commitment to upgrade the government-issued ID standards.
Under the PID Privilege Card Program, PID cardholders can present their IDs to PhlPost’s partner merchants to get discounts and freebies.
Earlier this year, PhlPost upgraded its ID card, which is now infused with much improved physical and biometrics-based security features that protect an individual’s identity and combat fraudulent transactions.

Fuel company Flying V on Monday started giving out fuel-and-lubricant-product discounts to holders of the Philippine Postal Corp.'s (PhlPost's) improved Postal ID.
The discount for fuel will be P1 per liter and P5 per liter for lubricants.
"Yung mga customers, what they need to do is to submit to any of our pump attendants, the Phlpost ID card, and then they can already avail of the discount," said Jesica Raymundo, Flying V vice president for Retail Network Operations.
For her part, Margarita Villavicencio Mistal, Flying V's VP for Finance, said that the discount was the company's way of supporting the PhlPost's postal ID.
"So ang Flying V mismo ang nagbibigay ng diskwento para sa mga motorista para maudyok silang gumamit ng card na 'to," Raymundo said.
PhlPost Assistant Postmaster General Luis Carlos noted that Flying V was not the only merchant his office had talked with over the discounts.
"There are spas, optical shops, and restaurants all over the country and it’s still on going. As of the moment we have 27 of them which includes Flying V," Carlos said.
He added that PhlPost is also planning to have partnerships with other oil companies.
"It’s not exclusive to Flying V. We cannot do exclusivity since we are in government. So it’s a public sector thing," Carlos said.
To fraudulent transactions, Raymundo said that Flying V's pump attendants would check motorists' postal IDs to ensure it was not a fake before they can avail the discount.
The new postal ID has improved security features such as a hologram and QR code.

As oil companies implement a hike in fuel prices effective today, wouldn’t it be awesome to get a discount on pump prices by simply presenting an identification card (ID)?
Beginning this morning, diesel and kerosene prices will rise by Php 1.45 per liter while petrol prices will go up by Php 1.35 per liter for the major oil industry players in the country.
This reflects the movement of prices in the international market.
If you’re seeking a respite from all of this, get yourself a Philippine Postal Service ID card.
The PhilPost has partnered up with fuel company Flying V to offer discounts on fuel and lubricants by simply showing your postal ID at pump to get a Php 1 per liter discount on fuel and Php 5 discount for lubricants.
PhilPost Assistant Postmaster General Luis Carlos said that this program is not exclusive to Flying V and that other petroleum companies can also join.
Application for a new postal ID now requires fingerprint inspection service in order to prevent unscrupulous individuals from cheating the system and getting a new postal ID under a different name.
The discount for fuel amounts to PHP 1 per liter, while the discount for lubricants costs PHP 5 per liter,” said Flying V VP for finance Margarita Mistal.
