    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.

    See page 84 of the July ON. Model "allowances" varied from $250 for the scooter to $750 for the K1600 and select 1200 models.

    During my June purchase of a new RT I worked with two dealers...one dealer indicated the "rebate/allowance" would be forwarded to me when received by them. The other dealer deducted the $750.00 amount from final purchase price at time of sale. They contacted me later as they'd forgotten to copy my MOA membership card when I took delivery of bike.

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

    Gad, I also remember that submarine. And I'll bet most others here are also old enough.
    Neither of my kids would have the foggiest idea..

    I had forgotten about the subs. Thanks for reminding me. I think that baking soda was the fuel.
