Want to make $50 in about 25 minutes this weekend?

We found an awesome promotion to help you do it!

Test-drive a new Subaru, and you can get a FREE $50 Visa prepaid reward card.

How to Get a Free Gift Card From Subaru

To claim your $50, follow these steps:

1. Go to, click “Find a Retailer,” and enter your ZIP code.

2. Click on “View Inventory” for your nearest dealership.

3. You should see a pop-up for a “$50 Prepaid Reward Card.” If you don’t, click the green tab along the side of the page to bring it up. Fill in your contact info to receive a promotional code.

4. Take that code to your dealer, who will complete the form to confirm your test-drive.

5. Mail in the form, and you’ll receive your gift card by mail in a few weeks.

True to its brand, Subaru recommends you use your reward card to visit a national park — but there aren’t any actual restrictions. We just think it’s sweet.

A few tips from drivers who have completed this promotion:

  • Contact your dealer ahead of time to ensure they’re participating in the promotion.
  • Make a copy of the form with the promotional code for your records before mailing it in. (Make sure you mail the original!)
  • Some drivers report receiving a Starbucks gift card, rather than Visa, and the amount may vary. Confirm the promotion in your area before heading to the dealer.

No purchase is necessary — just enjoy your test drive!
