Factory order but now received $500 credit in the mail..

Hey fellow keepers,
I just placed my factory (1/06) order a week ago and expect to take delivery in 5-7 weeks! Here's the thing, after numerous attempts to get the $500 certificate from jeep...it arrived today. The problem is that the it must be applied no later than jan 31. What options do I have as I doubt my jeep will be at the factory that soon. Has anyone else been in this situation? $500 is nothing to blow off.

Don't think you can do anything about it….if it's past the expiration the dealer can't touch it/use it anyway. Chrysler won't let them. You could ask for them to apply it now but they would be doing you a huge favor.

I would suggest you join Tread Lightly and get the Chrysler Affiliate Rewards (1% below invoice….no haggle needed) or check if your company is already a member.

I was able to get close to 2percent below invoice...but missing out on 500 bucks by 3-5 days is nuts. Thinking of just ordering off the lot at this point...I dunno.

Let us know what you do. Just know that if you order off the lot the dealer is now stuck with a Jeep that you custom ordered and they may be less willing to negotiate with you.

Chrysler actually pays the dealer 2% for selling a vehicle with Affilliate Rewards so if they are selling to you at 1% below invoice then they are keeping 1% for themselves. Also, try requesting the brochure in the name of a female but be sure you put the same address as yours on the request. Several of us have had better luck getting a brochure in a female's name vs male name. Good luck.

I've ordered several brochures. No $500 coupon yet :-( I called the incentives 800 number. Apparently, another round of $500 coupons are going to be shipped out over the next couple of weeks, since a lot of them out there are about to expire at the end of this month. Fingers crossed.

My $500 coupon showed up 90 days after I ordered my jk...obviously it was no good at that point

2 days ago, I got an email stating there was a valuable coupon for accessories inside...still have not located that.

Stupid marketing. They should know that it will actually take a coupon for me to buy crummy mopar accessories.

Yes, I was thinking of requesting one in my wife's name as well. I called my dealer and was told if the vehicle was in k status by 1/31 they could apply the credit. How long does it generally take to get to k? I defenately will keep fingers crossed.
Out of desperation, I plan to call the incentives dept tomorrow and explain my situation.
