Default Subaru Bucks

I recently read somewhere that the $100 Subaru bucks could be used at more than one Subaru service, Oil Change, parts and etc.
I look everywhere on line and can not find anything to back this.
Has anyone heard of any changes to Subaru Buck rewards redemption program
where you can use remaining bucks at a later time?
Thank You

As far as I know, you still have to use them in their entirety. I just used some a few months ago and was told this.

It's all or nothing with a Subaru Buck denomination. If you have $100 and your service is $34, then the rest goes back to Subaru for free. Use the extra left over to stock up on oil filters, wiper blades, keychains, etc. It ain't written down anywhere, that's just how it is.

Call your dealer and ask. That will be the most accurate answer.

It is actually written on the back of the subaru bucks. As one of the first adopters of subybucks (when MBNA ran the program), I know that this has never changed. You get no change. So yes....get your car serviced for $34 and then go to the parts department and buy all the gee gaws you need.

And as a reminder......if your name isn't on the subybuck, you get nothing. They are only good for the person listed on it. I've been carded while using them (funny because I used a credit card for the extra and my name's the same on the bucks, the card and my license).

This is why purchase/sale of subybucks isn't allowed on NASIOC. Too much chance that the receiver goes to use them and can't. Online parts vendors here who are also Subaru dealers accept Subybucks. subarugenuineparts.com and subaruwrxparts.com are 2 I've used them at.

Read the rules at Chase for your credit card. My dealer doesn't even know what extra-S is. No, really....they don't. I'm not going to trust that I'm going to get someone on the phone who has a clue.

The rules appear to have changed. My most recent certificate indicates it can be redeemed multiple times till used up. If it wasnt my bedtime I would scan and post it.

Yay for a nice perk that went completely unannounced by Chase or Subaru.

Google Chase Subaru Card

3% of all purchases go towards subaru bucks. When your reward reaches $100, they attach a certificate to your bill (or mail it separately if you're paperless). There's a yearly limit (I believe $700) and they expire (I believe 7 years).

I work there and didn't realize this... there are also a ton of coworkers that have no idea about the VIP program (or any of the auto discounts they offer) either. Looking into this today. Thanks!

Subaru bucks are awesome. Can use on a new car purchase, any service or if you go to a dealer that sells aftermarket parts you can pay with them too. I got the Subaru card last year and have already earned 2 vouchers. First one paid for half of my Kartboy kit and the second one paid for 2/3 of the rallysport flaps

I had read that blurb about "must be used in full" so I just made sure I used them on a purchase over $100.

jack pulls 2 of them out of his wallet.....

Back is blank. Both are dated for expiration 5/9/2017, so they're from this May.

Under terms and conditions: Each coupon is redeemable only once

I've bought a used Forester at a used car lot on that card. Paid for college education too (worked, then paid the tuition each semester).

Then we had two timing belts changed for 'free' and still have a thousand or two left.

Problem I find with them is many times you can't find things to go to the dealer for. I save them for emergencies.. timing belts, headgaskets, etc.

They're good, but it's bad when you get too many of them. They do expire.

Default Subaru Bucks From The Document

Just got Subaru Bucks in the mail and they can be used in part:

"Each coupon can be redeemed multiple times until the balance is used"

Nuff said!

Of course, some dealers may be unaware of this....just show them the document.

If I am not mistaken there is a number on the bottom of the "Subaru bucks" Subaru uses these to track the balance on that particular voucher. Therefore you could use it multiple times. At least that is how it was explained to me by my dealership.

I got a question that Chase can't seem to answer.

My Chevy trailblazer was recently serviced at my local Subaru Dealer. There was an alignment, oil change and four tires mounted for $22x.xx. I used two hundred subaru bucks and payed with my chase card for the rest.

The Shop Manager has my friend that did the work on my car call me. My friend/subaru mechanic tells me that the subaru bucks must be used on a subaru vehicle therefore I need to come and get my subaru bucks back and pay with real money for the service done. The reason the clerk took the bucks is because she is new and didn't know any better.

I'm looking for an answer before calling back the service manager.

Find a dealer that will let you purchase aftermarket accessories with them sold through the parts counter.

My Cobb DP cost me $10 out of pocket, my Eibach springs and AEM UEGO were free.
