$500 in the Mail?

Rec’d a direct mail piece from Jeep today that reads” $500 Bonus Cash Allowance – in addition to most current offers on virtually any new 2012 Jeep.
The promotion piece has my name on it and says non transferrable.

I’m scheduled to pick up my new Jeep on 4/9. I’m assuming I can present this to the dealer and get an additional $500 off what we previously agreed to. Can anyone confirm that this is the case?

Not every day one finds $500 in the mail.

If you used the Chrysler Affiliate Rewards / Tread Lightly program, all factory incentives are guaranteed to be accepted on top of any deal you make.

If you negotiated on your own, I still think the dealer gets the money back from Chrysler, so they would have no reason to turn it down.

I'm assuming it's std language around any ongoing promotions... 0% financing, military, lease/loyalty, etc.

I just got my $500 incentive last week and took delivery today. The dealer accepted the incentive without a question. I ended up getting the JKUR for $1500 under invoice when it was all added up. I thought it was a pretty good deal!

I went to pick up my Jeep at noon, and when I came home at 2 with it, I had that in my mailbox. I callled the dealer right away, and they honored it. I was back there in 20 minutes, something to say about buying locally!! I had already signed all the paperwork, they just refilled it and put in $500 rebate. I'm usually not so lucky, and glad the dealer was willing to give it to me.

Congrats! Wished this had happened with my Rubi but it did happen last year when we bought a 2011 Grand Cherokee and the coupon was a great, unplanned bonus discount.

As an aside, I mentioned I had the coupon and the dealer was actually able to look it up on the computer and applied it. I didn't even physically have to hand in the coupon. I think we got one in the mail and in an email. I'm not sure which was applied or if they were one and the same.

Yes, they should honor it.

I had got that coupon too but in my case I got it after I placed the order but before I signed the papers so it was fine.

Any idea how to get a coupon if you haven't received one in the mail? I'm anticipating picking up my JKU from the dealer in 2 or 3 weeks.

I got the same thing and used it to buy my new jeep. I was excited when I got and immediately used it. Good timing as I was a day away from buying my new jeep.

I think I got it because I requested a 2011 brochure and when they came out requested a 2012 brochure.

Check with your dealer, IIRC dealer has 30 days to claim incentives. They might be able to claim it and get you a check for $500.


And yes the $500 is on top of any other incentives you qualify for.

I received an electronic version of the $500 bonus incentive yesterday.

I'm guessing mine didn't come in the mail because my address isn't correct on the form. It has my name, my city, state and zip...but the address is just 1234. However, since it has my email address and a certificate number...I don't think it much matters.

I ordered my JKUR 2 weeks ago. Just for kicks, I requested a brochure online. I always grab one for any new car I buy. I was bummed to see that the brochure they mailed me was for the 2012 model year. Great marketing. I was very happy to find a $500 Bonus Cash Allowance included... Good til 12/4/12! If you got a Jeep on order, I would request a brochure while they are mailing out $500 dollar bills.

I just applied for my online brochure, but doubt it'll get here quick enough unless it comes from Toledo,OH direct. Maybe dealer will honor it regardless, but I doubt it.

I got my $500 bonus cash and it worked with tread lightly.

I ended up about 4% below invoice. 1% below from tread lightly and $1000 from Jeep. The $500 from Jeep keeps going up if you hold out. I ordered a brochure 6 months ago on a 2012 and received an email about the same time for $500 certificate. I ordered a 2013 about 6 weeks ago and didn't turn in that certificate. About a month ago I receive an updated offer of $1000 certificate. Went in 3 days ago when my Commando Green arrived and presented Tread Lightly and the updated certificate and ended up at about $1350 off so I was pretty happy. Also, financed at 1.49% through PenFed in about 5minutes and had a check 2 days later. Couldn't be happier! I also had them add a gas cap cover and side steps below retail and they painted the gas cap cover screws black for me because I asked. Looks awesome! My first Jeep and I love it!

My jeep has been delivered and I am picking it up tomorrow. I have both paperwork for tread lightly and the $500 rebate and I'm curious to see if they will honor both. Right now we have settled on $1,000 below invoice. I am doubtful they will honor both.

Did they accept both right away or did you have to push for it?? I can just see them making something up that they can't accept both or they can't accept either because I already signed a form paying the $500 deposit on the jeep.

I ordered my 2013 yesterday and negotiated 2% below invoice with Tread Lightly. I raised the issue about the $500 brochure certificate in the event I receive one (and they are good or issued for 2013s -- still not sure about that). The dealer said it would be honored. The $500 rebate is an incentive from Jeep, and the dealer should be reimbursed for that. In other words, the dealer is not out of pocket $500. Hope that helps and you get the rebate.

This might be a dumb question but just like the $500 rebate, is the dealer reimbursed by Chrysler for the tread lightly affiliate discount?
