San Diego, Calif. (PRWEB) March 15, 2012
Costco Auto Program, in collaboration with Subaru of America, today announced the Subaru Limited-Time Offer. This promotion will provide Costco members a $500 Costco Cash Card for completing a member satisfaction survey after the purchase of an eligible Subaru at the already low, prearranged Costco member price available through the Costco Auto Program.*
One of the top 10 most-requested brands by Costco members, Subaru is enjoying strong sales in recent years as the only auto maker to set record sales for the past three years. The company is also enjoying success so far in 2012 with its best-ever start to a year.
“Subaru is an iconic brand that stands for value, style and reliability,” said John Gleason, Costco Services manager. “Its steadily increasing popularity in terms of Costco member requests in recent years and the introduction of newly redesigned models, make the timing of this promotion perfect.”
Following previous successful promotions with brands such as General Motors and Volvo Cars North America, Costco Auto Program expects this partnership to be beneficial for both Subaru in conquest sales and Costco members in the value offer on the vehicles. As with the most recent Costco Auto Program promotion with Chevrolet and GMC, the company is expecting a more than 400 percent increase in the number of Costco members using the program to purchase a Subaru. The Subaru Limited-Time Offer includes all new Subaru models, except for all BRZ, Impreza WRX and WRX STI models.
“We are very pleased to partner with Costco Auto Program – a brand known for excellent value and customer service,” said Alan Bethke, director of marketing, Subaru. “And we’re excited at the opportunity to increase the visibility of our vehicles through this special promotion to Costco members.”
The Subaru Limited-Time Offer is available to Costco members from March 15 through June 15, 2012. To qualify Costco members must:
