    MOA Rebate from BMW

    Why does it take so long to get the MOA rebate from BMW for a qualifying motorbike purchase ?

    My dealer deducted the rebate amount at purchase in June. Hope he isn't still waiting for his funds from MOA.

    Ditto... except the dealer copied my RA card instead of the MOA card before subtracting the $500 from the purchase price just because. I did offer her a choice.

    Remember when you were a kid and you ordered the free baking soda powered submarine from the cereal box and the instructions said wait 6 weeks for delivery?

    In various now small pockets, this thinking still exists. The "overnight delivery" culture of today clearly hasn't permeated everywhere.

    Maybe that's it, don't know. But it was fun.

    There was no rebate from the MOA. For a limited amount of time BMW was giving X amount off the purchase of a new bike if you were a member of the MOA or the RA (proof required at the time of purchase). The program ended July 31 if I remember correctly. I also seem to remember that the discount was applied at the time of purchase, not sent to the customer as a rebate. Sounds like your dealer may have made a mistake, or ripped you off.

    I remember!

    It was a lot more fun when I was a kid than this video would have you believe.

    The submarine I got had an angled "U" shaped ramp thing under it that made the sub drive forward as the gas expanded. Never saw the diving one.

    I much preferred my Captain Midnight secret decoder so I could decode the message each week

    Then Sky King came along and Penny was hot !. Got over submarines and decoder rings in favor of girls. More fun !
