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.
