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.
Through 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”
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
