Cool 1,000 bonus cash!

About a month away from buying another Jeep, and what do i get...a 1,000 Bonus Cash Allowance. Any one used one of these and does it come out cheaper vs the chrysler Advantage program? Or can i use both> ( i know prob not)


thanks

The $500 Bonus Cash Allowance (that I used today) is on top of any other incentives/rebates/special offers.

I assume the $1000 is the same way, it's a factory cash offer so your dealership gets reimbursed for it.

I got the $1000 one too. Haven't used it yet because Wrangler's being built.

Why did you get this? For owning one and they want you to buy a new one?

I guess through my pending build and brochure requests that I'm on the mail list. Never had a Jeep before, the bonus just showed up in the mail!

Man, I would have been happy with just a $500 bonus cash offer, but $1000 is SWEET! I guess they have no need to give one to the guy who has had a few Jeeps before.

Not sure why/how I got one, it does say can not be used with advantage pricing.

Wait until the very, very end to tell them.

I waited right up until they were going to have me sign the contract before letting them know about it, I wanted them to be finished with all their upselling and made sure I had the final price confirmed.

Well isn't that a punch in the gut? I just signed papers on a loaded JKUR Friday night and only had a $500 cash back coupon. What's the deal with the $1000 ones?

Those that got the $1000, did you click on Wrangler only or a higher priced model? Wonder if its based on MSRP of models youre interested in. Just got my $500 in mail today, but i clicked on Wrangler and Cherokee.

Right!

I only got the $500, and I traded in a '13!!!

Considering my Rubi stickered at $45k, I would consider that a higher priced model... Of course we got our coupon in the mail, presumably because of the '10 JKUS we own(ed).

We requested the catalogs and just rec'd an e-mail with the $500 bonus cash allowance...no ticket in the mail. Question for those of you that used it on an order instead of a car on the lot: Did the dealer try to nullify it due to the small print "Offer not redeemable on a purchase/lease made prior to receiving this mailing" ?

We ordered back on 2/17 and still show as Production Scheduled in VOTS. Dealer didn't enter my e-mail, so no updates via e-mail from Jeep. Sort of hoping that the VINs are built in order, as I'm 262738 and I see that Dueeast got notified that his is done and his VIN is after me.

You haven't paid for the Jeep yet, have you?

Nope. Just gave 500 deposit. All the dealing we did and the final OTD price is on the build sheet. No official contract/forms yet.

Then you are good to go on the $500 bonus cash.

I'd argue that you can use it if you're also in a position legally where you could walk away. I would imagine it's to prevent folks from trying to get the rebate after they've taken delivery.

The fine print part that could possibly catch those who order is if they don't actually take possession of the Jeep before the deadline. I think mine had a June deadline which should mean you'll be fine. You could probably even place your order in April and be ok.

Cool. Thanks for the replies. Just getting antsy waiting, even though it's only been just about a month since order. The golden ticket is just a real nice extra on top of the deal I got. I wouldn't walk away and start over just for that.

That wasnt my my point - pick a top of the line Cherokee and its significantly more - base MSRP versus base MSRP its a different price point.

I got a BMW rebate as well, $1000 for 5's and $500 for 3's, thats what I was getting at.

I interpret it as taking delivery.

They can only be transferred to family members in the household (or something like that...it states the rules in the fine print).

I thought we were talking about a factory rebate. That looks kind of fishy.
