SAN ANTONIO -- Napster prepaid cards are now available at Valero Energy Corp.'s U.S. company-operated Diamond Shamrock, Valero, Ultramar, Beacon and Total stores. At a cost of $14.85, the cards allow customers to legally download 15 songs from the new Napster 2.0 Web site.
"We're excited to be among the first in our industry to offer the new Napster card," said Gary Arthur, senior vice president of retail and specialty products marketing at Valero. "Now our customers have a fast, easy and legitimate way to download a variety of songs without using a credit card over the Internet. We're also excited about adding this card to our product mix because we're always looking for new and innovative products. And, because Napster has become such a household name and there's such a demand for downloadable music, we're confident that the card will be very popular with our customers."
The prepaid card features Napster's distinctive logo and is activated at the time of purchase. It features a personal identification number (PIN) that customers use to activate 15 credits for permanent downloads from the Napster Web site, www.napster.com, according to the company.
"I encourage all of our customers to drop by one of our stores to check out this brand-new product," said Arthur. "The Napster card is easy to purchase, simple to use and it makes a great gift idea."
Since this digital service features the world's largest online music collection, users can choose songs from more than half a million tracks. Other benefits include the ability to search songs by genre, artist, track title or popularity; preview 30-second clips before downloading; and transfer songs to portable devices or burn them to CDs quickly and easily, according to the company.
