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

+6 Deal Score
7,274 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 read your post and decided to check out the 2021 Subaru Forester on the website and the pop-up came up for me.

Still having issues pulling up the popup. Can anyone share a link directly from wherever they saw it either from the Subaru main website or a local dealership portal?

I'm using an iPhone which usually never works with these popups but with all adblockers turned off, going to the subaru website closest to where I live (had to put in zip code) and turning safari to desktop mode I was able to get the popup. Thanks op
