I have a 2008 car and I graduated less than 24 months ago, where can I still get conquest and new grad incentives?

Already got rejected by Honda because they need a 2009 or newer and 12 months since graduation. Which manufacturers offer these incentives for my situation? Thanks.

Have you checked on Honda Website about their Grad program ? Also, while it is good to awail such rebates, sometimes you can check other brands that could be better at pricing even without these available rebates. (Eg infiniti which doesnt offer college grad yet)

Huh, just double checked and looks like Honda is past 24 months. I guess the dealer was misinformed.

Thanks for the tip on Infiniti, I’ll take a look.

I doubt. You need to negotiate your deal before you mention college grad. Add the college grad after you have achieved the lowest possible price.

Shouldn’t take that long to check a few OEM websites such as Toyota, VW, Subaru and Hyundai.


Bmw loaner all the way. If you’re in Cali use the hunger games promo code for an extra $1000 as well

What if OP doesn’t have BMW loyalty?

My first 3 series in the household came up to be a pretty good deal as we didnt have loyalty but sister had college grad. So depending on incentives at particular time, college grad does still make it a good deal. Atleast one rebate is better than none and ofcourse both are the best :rofl:

Conquest on some models+ ol+ college grad is $100/mo off on a 24 month lease. Add in cca if it’s a new car

what is OL and CCA? Couldn’t find those in the acronym thread lol

I can tell you personal experience that Honda and Hyundai are 24 months post graduation

@giveleaseplease are you going to update this thread based on what you found out about OEM grad rebates?

Looks like most of them are 24 months but most of them also require that graduation to be from a US school, which means I’m out of luck.

Haven’t found much about conquest though. Are there any manufacturers that don’t have that silly 10 year limit that makes me not eligible with my 2008?
