Not all USAA members are eligible for this program. Only customers who have a certificate are eligible to participate.
The certificate must be presented to a franchised Chrysler Group LLC dealer in the United States at the time of retail purchase or lease of an eligible vehicle.
Pat, as normal, thanks for the information. Will try to send some business your way.
I am a regular USAA member and do not know all the new rules. For additional information, I would call USAA Buying Service and/or go to the web site.
Buying Service told me they expected the promo to be extended after Jan 2 but it was up to Jeep.
Also told that the certificates were expected to be issued after Oct 31 but it was up to Jeep.
In my case, logged onto the USAA web site on Oct 31 and printed out several certificates. It was just a matter of selecting options, accepting pricing, and clicking on <Print> button.
Reason for several certificates: travel much for work and pleasure.
Sometimes go to a client’s site and there for several years.
Other times fly from Las Vegas to Boston on Monday morning. Work in Boston until Wednesday afternoon. Wednesday afternoon fly to LA. Work in LA Thursday and Friday. Friday night or Saturday morning, fly to Las Vegas. Even General Motors is one of my clients.
Have rented low end cars for over $1,000 a month. This would go a long way on Jeep payments and be much more fun !!!
As such, interested in buying several Jeeps:
Cherry Red GC Overland with 5.7 and off-road
Can afford payments but financing might be hard in today’s world.
Bought the silver 2008 JKRU with cash but will not be able to this time.
For current program rules, would go to USAA.
If not eligible, remember that some members have paid horrific prices on many levels.
When I called this morning to inquire, a USAA customer service rep, although not familiar with the incentive, said that many of their benefits are only available to certain members depending on membership eligibility. That is, a member that is eligible because they are active duty can qualify for more benefits than a member that is not.
A brief overview of their website shows that there seems to be several different levels of eligibility, active duty, retired, honorably discharged, families of the above, and the general public, each qualifying for different levels of benefit.
I qualify for membership as an honorably discharged veteran and went through the car buying service section of the website and was able to get a certificate that makes me eligible for the $1000 rebate. The downside of going online and filling out the car buying service information to see if I qualified is the almost immediate phone calls and emails from dealers trying to get my business. I must admit that some of them have very good deals but I'll stick with Pat@Fields.
