This deal has been going on for a little bit but in case you missed it, I wanted to make sure you were aware.  I first read about this over on Travel With Grant, and it also showed up on the excellent Doctor of Credit blog.

visaThrough March 31st you can get a $25 Visa Gift card for “test driving” a new Kia.  I put “test driving” in air quotes because in my experience you almost NEVER have to actually test drive the car.  This was certainly true with the last deal I did (involving 7500 American AAdvantage miles for “test driving” a Cadillac)

In the ~10 times I’ve done similar deals, I’ve only had to actually test drive a car once

My Kia Test Drive experience

There aren’t any Kia dealerships that are super convenient to my general routine, so I printed out the form, and kept it in my car until I was going to be in the area


I pulled up on a snowy day, walked into the dealership and this is how the conversation went down:

PWaC: “Hey I got this form about a $25 Visa gift card for test driving a car…”

Salesman: “Let me be frank with you – do you want to test drive a car, or are you just looking for the gift card?”

PWaC: “Just the gift card”

Salesman: “Okay.”

He then signed my form, put in the code, and I was on my way.  I estimate that I was in the dealership literally no more than 30 seconds.

Definitely worth doing IMO! You can print out the form to get your $25 Visa gift card with a Kia “test drive” here
