$1000 BMW Drive for Team USA Allowance

After I registered for the "BMW Drive for Team USA" thingy, I got this email that said I get $1000 towards the purchase or lease of a new 2012 or 2013 BMW. Does this apply to any other discounts we got?

Here is an excerpt of the email.
"You won’t want to miss this competitive event. As a thank you, only registered attendees will receive the limited-time $1,000 BMW Drive for Team USA Allowance, good toward the purchase or lease of a new 2012 or 2013 BMW model.* And once you have completed your experience, BMW will also recognize your drive with a $10 donation to Team USA.

If you have a change of plans, please be sure to reschedule or cancel by calling, toll-free, 1-800-956-4BMW (4269), Monday-Friday, 8:30 am-8:00 pm, EST."

Drive a bmw, by yourself, get a free hat and a thousand bucks...

I did it when we bought my wife's x3. Drove a 650 for twenty minutes and made $1000, not a bad return

The 650 at the time was what BMW NA sent, so it's on their insurance (as are the competitor cars they bring, which I believe varies depending on who their biggest competition in that region is, Mercedes in my case), so for those you don't need a sales rep to go with you.

It's coming to DFW after my ED pickup date.
Probably no way to apply the discount after the fact....

I think someone posted a couple days ago that they were able to use it even after the fact but I'm not sure the circumstance. Maybe as long as you register before delivery or something to that effect.

I did this last year when I was thinking of getting an F10 and I remember now that it cannot be used for ED purchases.

^^ That would be one heck of a deal. Combine that with the 300 app rebate and you are looking at 2300 off...not bad on a four month old car.

I'll be taking delivery just a week or so before I'm signed up for this. I hope I can still use this

Thanks for the heads up about this event/promotion. I didn't know about it.

I registered and anyone can register (even if you don't have an ID code mailed to you) at:

https://www.bmwusa.com/Secured/Conte...UDESummer.aspx

You just have to find when/where the traveling rodeo of test BMW's is coming to your town and select the model you wish to drive. Be sure to pick a dealership. This is very similar to the Susan Komen Race for the Cure promotion (BMW no longer participates in it). Customers test drive vehicles and BMW donates to the charity.

Upon further research, it appears that if you ordered the vehicle before registering for this event, you won't be able to get the discount. I'm gonna try though. Has anyone used this discount?

Oh, and ED is not eligible. Sorry.

How quick did you get the email from BMW? I signed up this afternoon and haven't received anything. Starting to worry I mistyped my email address.

I did that and set my time up and everything, but never received a confirmation email.

I signed up too but did not receive a confirmation email either

Tremolo, how do you know that it can't be applied to an existing order? I just ordered my F30 a few days ago and would like to get this $1000 credit applied if possible.

It took a couple of days to get the confirmation e-mail. Here's the restrictions:

BMW Drive for Team USA Allowance is available on all new 2012 and 2013 BMW models and can only be redeemed by individuals who participate in a scheduled BMW Drive for Team USA event and is non-transferable. The offer is valid from April 17, 2012 through October 31, 2012 on the lease or purchase of all eligible models except 2012 3 Series xDrive Sedans. The allowance on 2012 3 Series xDrive Sedans is valid until January 2, 2013. Offer may be redeemed at an authorized BMW Center for Stateside (U.S.) delivery only and cannot be used for European delivery. Offer not valid for vehicles delivered prior to event attendance or customer orders placed prior to event attendance. This offer may only be combined with certain eligible offers available at the time of delivery. Offer cannot be used for tax, title, registration, destination or other dealership fees. Some restrictions apply; see an authorized BMW center for details.

Itgb posted the "fine print" in big letters. Hahaha! Thanks!

I'm gonna try to use it anyways. Cos technically, you can refuse the order and order a new one at another dealer. Of course I don't wanna do that. Waiting another 2 months to save $1000 is not worth it to me.
