I wrote the other day that I was considering a factory order for the FFH.  And dealership

told me that this Private Cash coupon I had - checked on the computer as good

until late April - was locked in for certain at time of order.

 

And I believed him, but others here have said and other dealers confirmed, that this

P/C offer must be valid when you take delivery (as well as other rebates).

I think my dealer was BS'ing me just to get my check.  Or very likely he knew

less than I did about it.

 

Anybody can confirm definite experiences of this lock-in?  If I factory order, I can't

guarantee I'll have a valid offer in hand when the car arrives in 2-3 months - and then he

says "oh so sorry, that's not good any more" - then what do I do?  It does say

take "New Retail Delivery By xx/xx/2013" - so he was probably lying to me.

 

I plan to call Ford Marketing tonight and here is their number if anybody cares.

Hate to throw away $750.  The $500 regular rebate for the FFH is now good

until July 2013 sometime.

 

There are many variations of these coupons and in the computer I was extended for

longer than the coupon I had in hand.  They can look you up by name and zip code

and print a definite confirmation.

 

Ford Marketing: 800-548-3212

It is up to the individual dealer whether they will lock in an expired coupon for you. Some people here have been able to do so.

Every time I asked my dealership, I was given the run-around. I finally went in person to try and force the issue, and then we discovered I had a new

private offer that won't  expire until late April, so no need to force the issue.

 

What is not clear to me is if these dealerships that are honoring the expired offers are eating the discount or if Ford Corporate is honoring them.

i think it's the second, but I think Ford greatly discourages this, which is probably why not many dealers do it.

 

I would get it in writing that they will honor the private offer even if expired.

Now that you bring that up, I think the dealers would have to take the chance and

eat the $750 if there is no valid offer at the time of delivery.  Otherwise, if Ford

would somehow do the "courtesy extend" or they really do accept/lock it in with Ford

at the time of offer - why wouldn't all/most dealers do this to get the sale?

They have to be gambling on it (it seems) because these offers seem to "rollover" constantly.

 

That may explain in part why I got such a low offer for my trade and he

wouldn't budge at all - because he was building that $750 into that price.

Very hard to say.

 

I should be clear in that the coupon would be valid at time of order, but very likely

would not be valid at time of delivery.  Going purely by the date on it.

The Private Cash coupon I have in hand says "A/Z/D Plan Ineligible" - but interesting, not X-Plan.

Update - I did find out from the dealer I am buying from, the following...here's the catch:

 

If you custom order (from factory), then Ford locks in the Direct Cash and regular Rebates

at time of order.  Can go up if you get more somehow, but you will not get less.  This is consistent

with what the first dealer told me.  It's a Ford thing, not a dealership thing.

 

However, if you are accepting inbound dealer stock, or buying from stock (as in my case),

then the Direct Cash and regular Rebates only apply at the time of delivery.  So knowing my

Direct Cash was good until May 21 and car should arrive any day, this wasn't a risk for me.

 

He made it very clear that if that offer wasn't valid for some reason, whenever the car

does comes in, there was nothing they could do about it.  But he verified it when writing up the

order and but the $750 + $500 in rebates on the buyers order.

Good for you!  Wish I had been able to get one.

 

I've called Ford customer service at least 4 times requesting a Fusion brochure.  I finally received 2 of them in the mail but neither one of them had a coupon inside.  I've stopped trying to get a coupon thinking that my distribution area and/or X-plan must not qualify for it (I'm buying under X-plan).  I also wondered whether only current Ford car owners were being offered the coupon.

Just because you don't get a brochure, doesn't mean you don't have an offer.

Have the dealership check on the computer for you.  Also request info for

different cars and different household members.

 

Also check: http://owner.ford.com

 

On the "My Next Vehicle" tab --> New Vehicle Offers

 

I found one there.

Never owned a Ford and got one in the mail today. I ordered it from the Ford website last weekend. It's set to expire June 3rd, I'll have to call my dealer and see if that can be locked in.

Since you received your coupon after placing your order was the dealer able to lock it in?

In Illinois, Farm Bureau members get a $500 discount on new Fords after they have been a member for 6 months.  If you live in Illinois and are thinking new Ford, join now have the 6 months behind you buy during the fall sell down.  You don't have to be a farmer and the dues are something like $25 bucks.
