International Truck & Engine Corp. says that it is helping to ease its customers' pain at the fuel pump by forking over a $1,000 prepaid MasterCard debit card with the purchase of a qualifying International 4200, 4300 or 4400 Series truck.

The OEM is offering to put an additional $250 on the prepaid card if a customer in the U.S., excluding Hawaii and Alaska, finances a truck purchase with Navistar Financial Corp.

This promotion applies to orders received between July 1 and October 31, 2005.

“International recognizes that the high price of fuel significantly impacts its customers' bottom line,” said Mike Elwell, International director of marketing-medium vehicle center.
