Ford Division and The Lincoln Motor Company are pleased to announce the A/Z-Plan Conquest PIN program for the months of January and February (1/8/16 – 2/29/16). As a "Thank You" to all employees for their hard work in 2015 and to celebrate the new year with energy for the great new Ford and Lincoln products, Ford Motor Company will issue 1 additional A/Z-Plan PIN to U.S. employees and retirees for use between January 8, 2016 and February 29, 2016. This additional PIN – called A/Z-Plan Conquest PIN – will be eligible for use by extended family members, friends, or neighbors. A family member or friend who uses this additional PIN must be a conquest customer – meaning they must be a customer that currently own or lease a 1995 or newer non-Ford/Lincoln/Mercury Motor Company Car, SUV or Light Duty Truck.
Key program details are as follows:
1 additional A/Z-Plan PIN will be issued to U.S. employees and retirees for use between January 8, 2016 and February 29, 2016.
This additional PIN will be eligible for use by extended family members, friends, or neighbors (similar qualifications as X-Plan Friends & Neighbors, but at the A-Plan price).
A family member or friend who uses this additional PIN must be a conquest customer – meaning they must be a current owner or lessee of a 1995 or newer competitive vehicle (non-Ford/Lincoln/Mercury).
Individual using the AZ/Conquest PIN must provide proof of competitive make vehicle residing within household
Proof of competitive ownership or lease must be documented by the dealer and kept in deal jacket.
Current lease customers are not required to terminate their lease and current owners are not required to trade-in their vehicle.
Customer must have lease/owned the competitive vehicle for a minimum of 30 days prior to the sale date of the new VIN
The additional 1 PIN must be generated and used for new vehicle purchase or lease no later than February 29, 2016.
Employees and Retirees will use the same system and process to generate PIN as they do today (axz.ford.com).
The A/Z-Plan Conquest PINs will have a "C-" prefix appended to the standard format PIN. For example, an employee generated PIN will be C-A-00-000-00.
An extensive employee and retiree communications campaign is planned.
There are no changes to base A/Z PIN program rules/guidelines (4 elieligible PINs remains in place), vehicle pricing, or Plan commission payments.
Please note, there will be no program number or official announcement for this program; however, there
will be a revision to the A/Z-Plan Commission (#95166) to include the A/Z-Plan Conquest PIN.
All dealership personnel and Ford employees are reminded that standard Plan Rules still apply to A/ZPlan
Conquest PIN program. Please visit axz.ford.com, Plan Rules, to familiarize all employees with
these rules. This includes customer/sponsor obligations, dealer-to-customer gifts and fees, and
