Can you use both, has anyone done so?
Jim, how did you manage to get a $750 loyalty coupon?Yes, you can. The loyalty program is a rebate and can be combined with the VIP pricing at a participating dealer. I used both VIP and a $750 Loyalty rebate for my Ascent purchase in May.
yes I did. I told them Ive owned 2 outbacks - but they only asked for the VIN for my current one, but with my info they could probably find the other - so hard to say.Thanks Sequoia!
How did you get yours? Did you call SOA and ask (like I did)?
How many Subarus have you owned before? Maybe that plays a role in this?
I have done this once before.How do you work a trade-in with the VIP program? If they have to order the car, meaning it won't be there for a few weeks, how is value on your current car assigned?
I also got the $750 loyalty and have only purchased once before my 2020 order. Not sure how they determine what to give us when we call to request one.yes I did. I told them Ive owned 2 outbacks - but they only asked for the VIN for my current one, but with my info they could probably find the other - so hard to say.
Well, unfortunately for me, 10 weeks is 3.500 miles but you do imply it's possible.I have done this once before.
They looked at the car, and gave me a trade-in value (at the time of order). If nothing much changes in the 10 weeks or so (no crashed, no dents, not too many miles), and the dealer is honest, then they'll give you the agreed upon price for the trade.
In my case, it worked out. When I came to pick up the car, they did not even look at the trade. They took the keys and title, and that was it.
The value of a loyalty rebate varies. Most seem to be $500, but quite a number of use scored $750 and one person on the Ascent forum just garnered $1000. Calling into Subaru is the easiest way to ask for the consideration...and yes, you need to provide the VIN of at least one current Subaru you own, but if you have more than one, mention that and provide the VINs. I had two in the driveway prior to buying my Ascent. We now have three.Jim, how did you manage to get a $750 loyalty coupon?
I would just tell them that 10 weeks will add about 3.5K miles, and ask them to consider that in the quote. You could try to not say anything, but that may give them a reason to lower the trade-in value in the last moment. You never know .....Well, unfortunately for me, 10 weeks is 3.500 miles but you do imply it's possible.
Thank's for the information.
