What is the trick to access the 15% discount at Infinia every day?

According to the conditions of the offer -valid until at least February 5-, you not only have to be a member of the Serviclub program and pay from your cell phone using the

official application

of the oil company, as is usual for the rest of the promotions.

In order to have the 15% discount on Infinia

any day of the week

, the company requires those interested to use the YPF App as a

virtual wallet

, which requires carrying out some

prior procedures

with the cell phone.

"Money in account": how is the means of payment that enables the greatest discount in YPF?

With this modality, which replaces cash or card payments, the YPF App becomes

an account

 with a Uniform Virtual Key (CVU), just like those offered by apps such as Mercado Pago or Ualá.

And the idea is that the client



to that personal wallet in YPF the funds that he will later use to purchase gasoline or diesel.

In other words, a prepaid

system is transferred to fuel loads, 

such as the one applied when someone loads a balance on the SUBE or on a mobile line to consume it from then on.

Thus, when a customer has their account enabled and money deposited there, after filling the tank and scanning the


QR code , they can select in the app that they will pay with "

money in account

" (instead of indicating a card).

That is the way that allows you to access the

15% discount

no matter what day it is.

Step by step, how to open the virtual wallet for free in the YPF App?

The YPF app now works as a virtual wallet with CVU, but you have to take care of activating the option.
