Advance Puts Pets In The Driver’s Seat For The Holidays

Consumers can’t imagine holiday road trips without their furry family members. In fact, 78% of pet owners travel with their pets each year, and 68% of those travel between 100 and 500 miles with their pets, according to a recent TripsWithPets survey.

That’s why Advance Auto Parts says it is creating the “purrfect” surprise experience for “paw-rents” this holiday season.

This holiday season, pups and their paw-rents are invited to stop by a participating Advance Auto Parts store for road-trip essentials and a free gift, as modeled by Sammy the golden retriever.

Developed with the 23 million households who adopted pets during the pandemic in mind, from Dec. 13-24, participating Advance retail locations will welcome road trippers to pull off the highway and treat their four-legged co-pilot to a free bandana and fresh water while grabbing any pet and personal travel and road-trip essentials they need to complete their holiday journey.

“Advance has always been a trusted location for motorists, which is why we wanted to elevate our in-store experience to meet the needs of this year’s traveling consumer,” said Jason McDonell, Advance’s executive vice president, merchandising, marketing and eCommerce. “Many consumers are eager to reunite with family this year, and we want to support them with care and speed every mile of the way. Creating a space for furry family members while motorists handle pre-road trip maintenance, last-minute gifting or one of our free curbside services along the way are all part of that mission.”

Paw-rents are encouraged to spread holiday cheer and snap a photo of their dog, cat, bunny or other “pawsome” co-pilot rocking their new accessory using the hashtag #AdvancePups for the chance to score some additional pet products and gift cards.

Advance’s latest seasonal initiative comes as part of the retailer’s larger purpose to help consumers both “advance their holiday checklist” via deals on gifts that “get ya somewhere” and dependable services that get them to their holiday destinations safely. This includes free curbside services such as battery testing and installation, wiper-blade installation and “Check Engine” light scanning.

      Advance Auto Parts introduced its No. 1 fan “Ed Vance,” representing the voice of an emerging segment of automobile enthusiasts: those learning to DIY and craving a partner on their journey.
      “In Ed Vance, Advance is providing an authentic, relatable, entertaining and category-exclusive bilingual voice to embody, represent and connect with these modern DIYers, living alongside them in their DIY journey,” Advance said in a news release. “And his name just happens to be like the brand … Ed Vance loves Advance.”
      Forty percent of motorists who maintain their own vehicles are between 16 and 34 years old, according to the company.
      “Ed’s name recognition will draw quick connection to the Advance brand and serve as a vehicle to communicate the great benefits Advance offers,” said Jason McDonell, executive vice president of merchandising, marketing and e-commerce at Advance Auto Parts. “Ed is able to tell short stories that become authentic and real and connect with a new era of car enthusiasts who have emerged during the pandemic. We leaned into this in developing Ed as ‘every person’s person,’ inspiring these motorists to try something new in caring for their automobile while accelerating our commitment to build personal connections with them.”
      “In a retail category largely seen as a ‘sea of sameness,’ Ed Vance further differentiates Advance as the need for vehicle maintenance increases parallel to the average age of automobiles in the United States reaching 12 years,” the company added in a press release.
      Ed and Advance’s “Do It Together” movement is threaded through all aspects of the new campaign, a connection-first approach guiding all marketing efforts and putting the customer journey front and center. Ed Vance is bilingual, introduced as “Eduardo Vance” to Hispanic audiences in all marketing. His persona first debuts on Instagram and Twitter (@EdVance4Advance), followed by 30-, 15- and six-second spots in both English and Spanish placed in media and on platforms relevant to the modern DIYer, including Roku, Spotify, Pandora, Twitch and more.
      Advance also recently debuted a new custom theme and sonic logo in two languages. “This is How We Advance” and “Avanza Con Advance” drive brand recognition and affinity for Advance while providing a memorable, hummable tune for DIYers.
      The arrival of Ed Vance comes as Advance celebrates its 90th “Advanceiversary” this summer by curating consumers’ most memorable moments on the road – the “Drive of Your Life” – for the chance to win a year’s worth of free Shell gasoline and possibly have their drive recreated. To submit the Drive of Your Life, motorists should visit

      Advance Auto Parts is celebrating 90 years of helping motorists advance on the road by inviting consumers to share their most memorable moments behind the wheel.
      In celebration of its “Advanceiversary,” the brand is curating consumers’ most memorable moments on the road for the chance to win a year’s worth of free gasoline and possibly have their road trip recreated. Additionally, Advance is offering quadruple gas rewards now through July 20.
      Through July 31, Advance’s “Drive of Your Life” campaign invites motorists to share their most memorable drives – from cross-country vacations with family or friends … to riding in the homecoming court … to traveling to your team’s bitter rival (and winning!) … to pulling in the driveway of your first home for the first time … to just putting the top down and feeling the breeze when you needed it most.
      To submit the Drive of Your Life, motorists should visit

From those who post, Advance will select and announce each day beginning July 14 one consumer who will receive free Shell gasoline for a year. After the contest ends, Advance will hit the road to recreate select motorists’ drives of their lives.
      “When we reflect on 90 years of commitment to customer care and confidence, we think about our journey behind the many miles we’ve helped motorists advance – both on the road and in their lives,” said Jason McDonell, Advance’s executive vice president of merchandising, marketing and e-commerce. “But even more so, we think about the inspiring, personal stories of those drives. We all have that one drive we’ll never forget – the ‘Drive of Your Life.’ To celebrate our last 90 years and inspire our next 90, we want to hear yours.”
      Advance founder Arthur Taubman was a pioneer in curbside service, beginning the practice by installing tires upon purchase outside the store he worked. This is the root of inspiration for many of the services Advance offers today, including free battery and wiper-blade checks and installation, along with a leading parts selection that caters to motorists’ many needs, the company noted.
      With the price of gasoline hovering around a record national average and the average vehicle age rising, Advance’s celebration comes at a time when motorists face challenges to create new memories on the road after two summers of uncertainty.
      To further help motorists save this summer, all existing and new Advance Speed Perks Gas Rewards members will earn 20 cents off each gallon of gas for a single fill-up at participating Shell stations for every $50 spent at Advance stores across the country between July 13 and 20.
