Test Drive a Subaru receive $50 Visa Reward Card (YMMV)

+6 Deal Score
7,284 Views
I've been looking at purchasing a Subaru for the last month and checking local dealer websites for inventory and building out trim levels for several weeks on my desktop computer.

For the first time a pop-up window for my local dealers website was advertising $50 gift card with test drive and it generated a one time use code to be printed out and used in the next ten days at the respective dealership. You will get emails and text messages from the dealership.

I arrived at dealership and internet sales person took the paper and said he would process it without a test drive because he had another appointment coming in.

I received a redemption email within 24 hours afterwards to cashout for either physical card in mail (2 weeks) or instant digital visa (which was selected and converted into Amazon GC online)

Link is for manufacturers website:

https://www.subaru.com/index.html

Please note: I was on a local dealers build and price webpage checking inventory when I got the pop-up offer (make sure your desktop computer settings allow for pop-ups).

I know these offers were popular a few years ago, but with COVID times change. Seems like all my neighbors are bringing home new cars with stimulus money lately and I'm getting jealous.

I'm located in Southern California, Inland Empire.

Thanks. I don't know much about Subaru vehicles so maybe worth a test drive.

They had this in January when I bought my Subaru. Never received the $50. About all it did is get a salesperson to email with pricing.

Subaru pays out. Hyundai never does. Not doing test drives until I get my 2nd shot and two additional weeks are up, so sometime in mid-April.

Unfortunately, no pop-up for me. Thanks for sharing though. I've done these deals in the past (pre-pandemic), and I usually received the gift cards. Good times!

Driving my third Subaru and in New England, they are a must. Amazing all wheel drive and decent gas mileage. The deal to test drive is one per family. Did this just before covid hit just to see the latest bells and whistles. Have not tried the link to see if if is region specific but might because wife is looking to trade in her Subaru. Thanks for posting!!!!

I just clicked on the link and put in my zip code. I live on the border of NY and CT. Nothing popped up for NY but it did for CT, I signed up but have to do it by the end of the month. Of course my first Covid shot is after the end of the promotion so I do not know if I will bite and do a test drive?

What page were you on? I can't get anything to pop up. Not sure if being on mobile makes a difference.

Thanks. Went yesterday to the dealership. Didn't have to test drive, and received the email to redeem for $50 Visa last night.
