Quaker State® has announced its recognition of the next recipient in the Quaker State Cash Back Program. Terry Link of Killam, Alberta, Canada recently hit the 400,000 kilometer mark in her 2003 GMC Yukon XL while choosing Quaker State motor oil at each of her vehicle’s manufacturer-recommended service intervals.

For her mileage achievement and loyalty to the Quaker State brand, Link has been awarded $3,000, the maximum allotted payout amount under the program.

“I’m a believer in protecting my investment, especially when it comes to my vehicle. That’s why I enrolled in the Cash Back Program,” said Terry Link, Quaker State Cash Back Program recipient. “I kept track of all my oil changes and used Quaker State to keep my engine running smoother and longer…and now they’re handing me cold hard cash.”

The Quaker State Cash Back Program, launched in June 2011, is designed to reward loyal consumers with the U.S. Kelley Blue Book Trade-In Value for their vehicle, up to $3,000 CAN. To qualify, consumers must have used eligible Quaker State motor oils and reached the 400,000 kilometer mark in their vehicle.

Link has serviced her vehicle for years at the same location. She purchased her vehicle new and has driven it daily for the past ten years, taking it beyond the 400,000 kilometer mark.

“At Quaker State, we not only value the overall life of a vehicle, but, more importantly, we value those who have been nothing but loyal to our brand,” said Chris Hayek, Quaker State Global Brand Manager. “The Quaker State Cash Back Program was created to show our appreciation for the individuals who have done just that – selecting Quaker State every time.”

Enrollment in the Quaker State Cash Back Program is open to eligible participants in the Quaker State Lubrication Limited Warranty who utilize any Quaker State specialty motor oil starting no later than the 160,000 kilometer mark. Consumers will not be eligible for the Cash Back Program if they use Quaker State conventional motor oil at or beyond the 160,000 kilometer mark, unless they are an existing Quaker State motor oil customer registered for the Quaker State Lubrication Limited Warranty program before June 1, 2011.

The Quaker State Lubrication Limited Warranty protects 15 engine parts from lubricant-related failure and provides motorists’ vehicles with coverage for up to 10 years or 400,000 kilometers, whichever comes first. The Quaker State Lubrication Limited Warranty is free to qualifying consumers who use Quaker State motor oil products. To qualify, consumers’ vehicles must have been manufactured within the last 72 months and have been driven 125,000 kilometers or less at the time of enrollment.

Bluewave Energy is a Shell distributor who supplies Quaker State motor oils to many oil change facilities across Canada, including the location where Terry Link services her vehicle.
