You got the digits. You made the call. Now you have the big date. You even have some sweet new threads, so you know you’ll bring your A-game. Nice!

But then you realize what’s parked in your garage.

No one wants to pull up in a 1998 Chevy Lumina, no matter how reliable it is, when they’re trying to impress.

Instead, arrive at your date in a brand-new Lincoln Continental.

It’s good enough for Matthew McConaughey, right?

How to Fake Wealth Using Lincoln’s Date Night Promotion

Now through Dec. 31, you can test-drive a brand-new Lincoln for 24 hours and get a $100 Visa gift card at participating locations so you can grab that dinner bill with confidence thanks to Lincoln’s Date Night special. You may even want to slip in a little money conversation to see if you and your date are on the same page.

That’s right. Not only do you get to drive it up the block and back, but that bad boy is yours for a full day.

What could you do with a Lincoln in 24 hours? You could…

  • Pick up your mom and take her out to lunch while convincing her that you really are gainfully employed. Just look at the wheels!
  • Cruise by your old flame’s house nice and slowly. Look who’s moving up and who missed out!
  • Pick up your date and go for a scenic drive… or at least to the movie theater on the other side of town.
  • Take your date out for breakfast the next morning because, you know, it went well.

Read the Fine Print First

The offer is pretty straightforward.

You have to be 25 years old to participate. The dealership will ask to see a driver’s license to make sure you can legally drive the roadways, which doesn’t seem unreasonable to me. You’ll also need an insurance card, just in case your ex throws a shoe or a rock at you as you drive by. Again, pretty reasonable.

Lincoln does reserve the right to determine if you are a legitimate prospective buyer, so you may want to iron that shirt before you go.

Some locations are booking up fast, so you may want to call to schedule your appointment. Plan ahead for that date!

What would you do with a Lincoln for 24 hours? I think I’d just drive around and try to be as cool as McConaughey.

All right, all right, all right!
