A Special Reward for BMW Financial Services Users of “The Ultimate Drive App” for iPhone and Android devices in Celebration of the Launch of the New BMW 3 Series.

14.03.2012

Woodcliff Lake, NJ
- March 14, 2012….The Ultimate Drive App for the iPhone and Android devices (http://www.ultimatedriveapp.com or www.facebook.com/BMWUSA?sk=app_199134910131531 ) can now lead BMW Financial Services customers to not only some great roads across the U.S., but today through June 30, 2012 it can lead to a BMW dealer, a test drive and a $300 credit towards the first payment on a new 2012 BMW 3 Series.

“This is a simple thank you to our loyal BMW Financial Services customers while at the same time demonstrating the inclusive nature of the Financial Services community as shown by our Ultimate Driving App,” explained Ed Robinson, CEO and president of BMW Financial Services. “The iPhone and Android-device application, which can be linked to a BMW Financial Services customer’s account, has been providing a forum to share and discover great roads and keep up-to-date on the latest BMW news since its introduction in August 2011.

“Now we’ve added something special for the BMW Financial Services customer with this unique $300 offer on their first payment towards a 2012 BMW 3 Series which is completely handled through the app, the next step in our spreading the functionality of our mobility programs.”

Obtaining the $300 voucher towards the first payment on the new 3 Series is simple:

1. BMW Financial Services customers download or upgrade to the latest version of the Ultimate Driving App through the iTunes App Store or Android Market.

2. After a brief login, BMW Financial Services customers can schedule a test drive. The app first suggests their current BMW dealer, but they can select others from a map. The app can automatically generate a personalized email to the dealership or they place a call directly.

3. After the test drive, the customer confirms which BMW Center they visited, enters the BMW Client Advisor’s name, and can optionally take a picture of themselves in the new 3 Series. Instantly, the app unlocks a unique $300 “Mobile Voucher,” which can be redeemed upon financing of a 2012 3 Series by June 30, 2012.


“What is exciting for our customers is the immediacy of it all,” said Pawan Murthy, General Manager of Online Business. “You don’t need to wait for a printed coupon to be mailed to you nor do you have to call a toll-free number. We want to reward our customers for their loyalty through the one tool that is always with them: their phone.”

In addition to this popular smartphone app, the Ultimate Drive has a fast growing community on Facebook and Twitter (facebook.com/ultimatedriveapp and UltimateDriveFS).

“We are constantly looking to make all of our mobility apps and social media programs easier to use, more informative and more fun. As a company, we pride ourselves on our ongoing use of technology to build stronger relationships with our customers, “added Robinson. “The Ultimate Drive app has allowed us to broaden our awareness as an organization to a vast audience, but more so, it provides us the ability to recognize a community of our BMW customers in our daily effort to turn them into fans.”

The Ultimate Drive app was jointly developed by BMW Financial Services and San Francisco based firm, SocialNav, Inc. Additional details about the app and offer can be found at www.ultimatedriveapp.com.

Does this apply to people who've already bought the car? My first payment isn't due until mid-april and I've financed this through BMW Financing.

Is the voucher good anywhere or do you need to buy from the dealer where you did the test drive?

Did you do anything specific? Looks like you've already received your car?

For me, I haven't received my car yet (it's on order and has a production number) haven't made any payments yet so, I'm thinking I could apply for the offer. If all else fails, I can always contact the dealership to see if they can make this happen.

I just messed around with the app and got a voucher code. I had already done a test drive so I clicked "Confirme Test Drive" in the app and got a voucher immediately. Now the question is how to redeem the voucher. It says, I need to give this to my client adviser. Unfortunately, my dealership is a bunch of jackasses and won't even bother dealing with me, but I'll try. If not, I'll call up BMW NA

That's great news. Hopefully, you won't even need to deal with them. I (think) if you're financing you should be able to just put it in before your payment. Or just call BMW financial services and tell them you'd like to apply the voucher towards your payment.

I don't want to do anything at this point since I have not yet established my financing. My dealership says they'll contact me two weeks or so (possibly earlier) before my European Delivery to establish my payments, etc. through BMW Financial. I'm reluctant to apply until I have an account.

Actually I need to change my sig... I havent received the car yet. I just went through the app and selected call for test drive and hung up then it asked for the salesman info and gave the code. I assume that when I go in to get my car I just hand them this code and be set.

Messed with the Apps and seems this is good only for current BMWFS customers?
I have an old BMWFS account but current car was paid off long ago. I have approved lease application with BMWFS, but not getting car until May and it doesn't find any valid account when I try to link to my BMWFS account.

EntropicArtist - Let me know how it goes with your voucher. You have already signed paperwork and taken delivery of the car. I do not think you can get this because the fine prints says you must have leased or financed between 3/14 - 6/30 2012.

I am hoping I can get my account setup beforehand and get a voucher in time to apply, but not sure if that's going to work as this seems to be targeted at existing or fairly recent (i.e., rollover) BMWFS customers.

@ pcbrew,

I called the BMW FS and gave them the voucher number to apply against the first payment, but they needed some information from the dealer. The rep asked me to go to my dealer and ask about the promotion. They couldn't just apply the voucher since my vehicle doesn't have the promotion information from the dealer.

I think the dealer has to confirm this. My dealer probably doesn't know anything about this since the promotion is fairly recent.

Just downloaded the app and read the rules.. unfortunately it's not for me. I am a current BMW Financial Services customer but my F30 is paid cash so, unfortunately, no incentive for me. Guess I'll delete the app again, it's mostly not for me anyways since all we can do is drive in circles on this island

Doesn't make sense!!

"If you are current financial or lease account holder from 3/14/2012 to 6/30/2012" which mean you NOW OWN or have a BMW financed or leased. Does that mean They expect you to get out of the lease or sell the car and get a new F30 within this 3 months period then they give you $300? Doesn't make sense.

What? You're overcomplicating this. The rebate program is effective 3/14 through 6/30 for existing BMWFS account holders only. If you currently finance or lease a vehicle through BMWFS, regardless of loan/lease inception date, then buy/lease an F30 from 3/14 until 6/30 through BMWFS, you can get this rebate.

Real world example: me. I currently have an '07 335i financed through BMWFS and have an F30 on order that I will sign the lease paperwork for somewhere between now and the 1st week of May. As a result, I am eligible.

So if I'm currently waiting for my f30 to get on the boat, I can't get this? Since my Financial Services account isn't set up yet? It will be in a month or so.
