My brother is a Subaru Ambassador. He has applied for a few years and finally got accepted for 2017. Basically you get a ton free stuff from Subaru. Apparel, bags, traveler cups and other fun promo items. It's not junk either. He was able to order a nice Subaru jacket too. I think they get an allowance or something like that.
They only get a certain amount of coupons to use. I think no more than 5. Coupon is for $500.00 of a new vehicle purchase. Once you get the coupon you have 1 year to use it. The name and address must match the person who is buying the car. Also VERY IMPORTANT you are told on the coupon to refrain from telling your sales rep you have one until you have an agreed upon selling price. Once that selling price is in place then you present the coupon. This is so that the dealership cannot say it's included when you are negotiating. I just agreed to a selling price of $24,335 so now I can use my coupon to make the selling price $23,835. It can really come in handy and makes a huge difference. I'm sure the Ambassador gets a kickback too once it's used.
I hope that information helps!
That's a bold strategy Cotton let's see if it pays off.
