打油收集盖章换取雨伞,据很多网友投诉,当你收集满盖章后要换取时,员工会告诉你 “Habis Stock” 。

And so i got my petronas umbrella,hahah,how bout u?

for every rm20 refill, get 1 stamp. To get the umbrella, we need 10 stamps. So, thats what i meant it worth rm200. Heheh

PAYUNG PETRONAS ♡ harga rm200 okay. Hahah

PETRONAS IS RIGHT BUT STILL WRONG!

Petronas can remain stubborn, insisting that it is a limited edition umbrella, that it is offered in a first come first served basis, and that it ran out of stocks due to the overwhelming response.

Petronas would be right on all counts.

However, what may have sounded like a good public relations masterpiece is turning into a national disaster.

People are saying things like: staff took all the umbrellas, there were no umbrellas to begin with, too few were produced, petrol stations gave it to their few favourite customers, and so on.

Are these things true? Does it matter? People believe in these rumours, unsubstantiated though they are, and that is what counts.

Sure to get d Umbrella? No stocks at many Petronas stations!!

One upset customer found a creative outlet for his frustration by producing a parody video of his experience of being told that the umbrellas are out of stock at no less than five Petronas stations.

The two-minute video was spliced with footage of 1980’s heartthrob Faizal Hussein riding a motorcycle with a rucksack and sleeping bag on his bag from cult movie ‘Gila-gila Remaja’.

Renamed ‘Gila-gila Payung’ (Crazy over umbrellas), the video has received more than 6,000 views on YouTube.

Umbrella umbrage grips Petronas customers via yeah where is mine eh! still waiting

Umbrella umbrage grips Petronas customers

The promotion, which runs from July 20 to Sept 15, requires customers to collect 10 fuel purchase receipts in order to redeem a special umbrella.

Checks found that Petronas’ Facebook page was also flooded with comments on the missing umbrellas.

The customers are also crying foul over the ‘first-come first-served’ clause which they claim was not stated when the promotion started in July.

One customer, Fadzullah S Medar, said he believes the umbrellas never existed.

“Consumers have been tricked by Petronas… The promotional item does not exist,” he wrote on the page.

Another customer, Lucas Xian Loong, said that Petronas should have put the umbrellas on sale instead.

“Your umbrellas are as precious as gold. It’s better for you to put a price on them and sell them, if you’re so scared of losing money (by giving away) the umbrellas,” he said.

“Great, Petronas!” he wrote, cynically.

    I have been waiting for this umbrella since early august. Same cliche answers: “x de stock”, “stock blm smpi”, “minggu dpn baru sampai” “baru saje habis”. Nampaknya kalau x mampu nak bagi x yah lah but campaign besar besaran. Awal2 lagi kita dah bli minyak dgn harapan nak dpt kan payung sekaki tu tapi hampeh sampai hari2 terakhir.

    Takkan hari2 24 jam nak tunggu depan pintu petrol station petronas kottttt
