Treadlightly Discount

Is a 30 day waiting period after joining treadlightly required? If so, is there a way around this?

Yes. But, your dealer may not notice, he wants the deal too. You can get your control number online right away.

I didnt see anything about a 30 day waiting period on mine. I followed the instructions in the packet to go online at chrysler affiliates and put in my information and printed the form.

I signed up on 8/13/2011 and the affiliates letter said the certificate was good from 8/13/2011 until 12/31/2011...

I took it to my dealer on 8/24/2011 when my jeep arrived and it was a done deal.

Got my certificate and number in the mail. Is there more to do? Also is the discount on tires a limited time deal?

You have to either go online or call Chrysler for a control number. That is the number you give to the participating dealer along with a copy of the membership letter.

If you call the 800# they won't give you the control number until you have been a member 30 days. If you do it online you will get the control number but the dealer probably will catch that you have a control number and have not been a member 30 days and disallow the discount. If they make a mistake and allow it my understanding is that if they get audited by Chrysler they do not get reimbursed. Word has gotten out in my area so all the dealers are requiring the 30 days. YMMV

Thanks! Will take more than 30 days to get the Jeep. After going online I could not find the link to get the control number. Could you send a link?

My dealer insisted that I be a 30-day plus member in order to qualify for the discount. But, like others, since I'm waiting for my ordered '12 Rubicon to come in, it will be well beyond 30 days by the time I take delivery so my discount will be OK. My dealer also told me that they learned that other dealers were enlisting numerous prospective customers to sign up and take advantage of the discount, but that they had been 'discovered' by either Jeep or TL or both.
