Upromise Offers Members $1500 to Pre-Order a VW Routan

May 7, 2008 · 0 comments

In a press release today, Volkswagen of America announced it’s offering Upromise members $1500 if they pre-order VW’s new minivan, the Routan. It’s kinda cute, really, starts at $24,700 with seven-passenger seating, a two-screen entertainment system, two power sliding doors, and “no less than thirteen cup holders.” Wow…they should’ve included a restroom! ;)
The way the Upromise promotion works is, you log in to your Upromise account — join here (aff) if you’re not a member already — then go to http://www.upromise.com/vw where they’ll give you a Upromise VW Savings Code. Take the code to your dealer, and make a deposit on your new Routan by 8/31. Complete your purchase or lease and take delivery by November 30th…and 6 to 8 weeks after delivery, they’ll deposit the $1500 into your Upromise account. You can then request a check from Upromise, you can transfer the money into your (or another person’s) 529 plan, or you can apply it toward an outstanding student loan.
Not sure what “Routan” means. I did a German-to-English translation on it and it just meant “routan.” Not helpful. It reminds me of Roatan, which is a terribly poverty-stricken city in Honduras. Who picked the name? Anyway, VW’s website for more info on the van, is here.
