SAN RAMON, Calif. -- Chevron Products signed an agreement with Blackhawk Networks to offer its Chevron and Texaco gift cards at Blackhawk's exclusive retail network, including Safeway and Vons stores in California.
The cards, in $25 and $50 denominations, are designed to create customer loyalty and offer a convenient payment method. The cards can be used at all Chevron or Texaco locations to purchase any of their offerings, including gas, snacks and services.
