One of the number one complaints from any college student is that they are always broke, and it’s no wonder. With high tuition costs, room and board, having to pay for textbooks, and having no time to work during the week between classes and homework, it can be rough to squirrel away extra change. That’s why Ford launched the Ford Drives U program to help college students purchase or lease a new vehicles, because the last thing students need to worry about is how they’re going to chauffer their friends around during the weekend.
How does it work? Thankfully, Ford’s Ford Drives U website makes the process simple. All students have to do is sign up through the form available on the website and they’ll get a free $500 incentive in bonus cash to put towards their new car, plus access to great rates when financing the loan on their brand-new set of wheels.
In order to be eligible for the program, all you have to do is be a full- or part-time student at a four-year college or university, junior college, community college, or trade school — Ford doesn’t discriminate! You’re also eligible if you’re in a graduate program, or even if you have already graduated. That’s right, if you’ve graduated between May of 2014 and now, you can still cash in on this great offer.
Take advantage of the Ford Drives U program by bringing proof of student eligibility with you to your local dealership when you go to pick up a new 2015 or 2016 model. Proof can be anything from a diploma to your transcript to a current class schedule. The program ends January 3, 2017, so make sure to take advantage of this program while you can!
