Test Drive Offers and Incentives

test drive offers
Test drive offers are a fun way to get a little stay at home mom income plus get to check out new cars.

Learn all about test drive incentives and how you can get free gifts for looking at new cars, even if you are not in the market to buy a new car.

New cars these days are a tough sell, so car manufacturers are going to great lengths to get you to consider them when you buy a new car.

Did you know that you can go into a car dealership and get a free gift simply for driving one of their new cars? Seriously.

They pay you to drive new cars!

No, this is not mystery shopping.

You don't have to fill out a survey, or have your credit report checked. Heck, most of the time you don't even have to drive the new car!

How? Well, many auto manufacturers send out test drive offers, or test drive incentives, to potential customers.

These test drive incentives can be received by email, postal mail, or are sometimes advertised locally on a radio or TV station or in the newspaper.

The test drive offers vary; they can be anything from a baseball cap, to a $100 gift certificate to a particular retailer.

The most common test drive freebies are $50 either in a prepaid Visa or MasterCard, or $50 in your choice of gift certificate at select retailers.

Sound interesting? It is. In order to receive the test drive offers for new cars, you need to be on their mailing list.

The easiest way to do this is to go to each manufacturer's website, and request a brochure on one of their new cars. Do this every 6 months or so. If you're married, request a brochure for a different vehicle for your husband, and use his email address.

Here is a list of USA websites for the companies who give out the most test drive incentives:

  • Buick
  • Chrysler
  • Dodge
  • Ford
  • GMC
  • Honda
  • Hyundai
  • Infiniti
  • Jeep
  • Land Rover
  • Lexus
  • Maserati
  • Mazda
  • Nissan
  • Saturn
  • Suzuki
  • Toyota
  • Volkswagen

  • New cars are so much fun to test drive! They are even more fun if you are in the market to buy a new car. You will want to go to each website and request a brochure of one or more of their new cars.

    Make sure that you put both your email and mailing address in, don't put your phone number, and ask that a brochure be mailed to you, not emailed.

    It may take a few months, but check your email and mail box for smaller pamphlets from manufacturers. The test drive offers usually look like an ad, or a postcard. There will be instructions inside on how to get your test drive free gift.

    The test drive incentives are usually one per person, not per household, so sometimes if you and your husband both get the offers, you can get two prizes. Once you receive a test drive incentive, you take it to your local dealer and hand them the card. They will need to fill it out for you, stating that you took the test drive.

    I always let the dealer know that I will not be buying a new car today, but got the test drive incentive in the mail (or email) and decided to stop in for the prize. Nine out of ten times, the dealer just signs the card for me and I don't have to drive the new car.

    This works out for the dealer, as they are not wasting time on you instead of trying to sell a car to another customer. Once your card is filled out, mail it in to the address provided, and you will be mailed (or emailed) your prize.

    Make a copy of the offer before you submit it, so that if for some reason you do not receive your test drive free gift, you can call and ask about it. This has only happened to me once.

    Sometimes you can find offers on the Internet. These offers are not sent to a preselected list, but are available for anyone (with a valid drivers license) to do.

    The Fun Place Forums is a great FREE website that I drop in on weekly that has postings of these offers. Sometimes, you won't see a good offer for weeks, or even months, but other times there are 4 or 5 available at the same time. Over the years I've gotten the following from test drive offers:
  • Free Steak Dinners
  • $100 Gift Certificate to Dean and Deluca
  • $50 Gift Certificate to Cabela's
  • Countless $40-50 Visa Gift Cards
  • Many $50 Amazon Gift Certificates
  • Free Gas Cards
  • Strange Gift Boxes with Things Like DVDs
  • Movie Cash (lots of this)
  • Other Gift Certificates
  • It's a fun, occasional, hobby. I like to store up my prizes for Christmas or birthday presents for my extended family (like the gift certificates) or vacation for my immediate family (all the Visa gift cards).
