$50 Visa gift card to test drive a 2013 Buick Enclave

I finally received a test drive incentive for a car that I am interested in test driving! It's only $50, but I was considering asking my salesperson for a test drive, anyway, during my next service appointment. Now, they are going to pay me to have a little fun.

Do you need to get something in the mail for this? If so, any idea on how to get one??

Did you have to sign up for this? If so can you tell us where? I have done this for Kia and Ford in the past. You just had to sign up on a website, print off a document and take it to the dealer.

Received my offer in the mail yesterday. I have an oil change scheduled for Friday. This will give me something to do while I wait. And. they will pay me for the test drive. I want to see the differences between the 2013 and my 2011 first hand.

Re: $50 Visa gift card to test drive a 2013 Buick Enclave

Got it yesterday as well, but I don't plan on going to the dealer for anything since I do my own oil now...shame they don't bump it up to $100 like Audi or give you free Callaway clubs like Jaguar. Also got a performance driving instructor offer from Jaguar, which they canceled in the fall because of Sandy. Car makers need to start to realize, you need to earn someone's purchase, someday people will smart up from the $0/$0/$0/$0 (I think). How many private offers do they repeatedly send? If you buy a GM without one, you have to be brain dead nowadays....

Great idea to get your code while you're there. Every time I've done it in the past the salesmen actually dislike the offers and are willing to give you the code to save his time and yours.

We recently got one of these- to test drive the new Malibu.
It wasnt for money- it was for some aviator like sunglasses.
I looked them up online-- and I think they were going for about $100 on ebay or somewhere--- they werent cheapies.

Re: $50 Visa gift card to test drive a 2013 Buick Enclave

When the BMW 7 came out (the F01), they had a Thomas Pink offer to test drive them. Thomas Pink shirts start at $185. For the Jaguar, I got a Odyssey White Ice putter. Today it's only worth $99, but a few years ago they were about $159.

$50 is not nothing, but GM should look at the effect.....the time of a sales associate and potential customer may be wasted. Up it to $100, and get serious on both ends (don't just fill out the code but SELL the car). The system is what it is, I suppose.

I plan to test drive the 2013 Enclave, and not simply get the gift card code. I really am curious to experience the MCE and the DI drivetrain.

I got my offer in the mail on Monday. Works out great as we are considering trading our 08 for a 13'. We are also interested in the Encore, and my offer specifically says that I can test drive ANY 2013 Buick. Hopefully there will be some Encores on the lots soon!
