Subaru VIP Program

Access to the Subaru VIP Program is an exclusive Leave No Trace member benefit. To qualify, you must be an active member of Leave No Trace for at least six months prior to requesting a VIP form.

“The collaboration between Leave No Trace and Subaru is amazing. It made shopping for my new car a great and more affordable experience — it was seamless and now I have a brand-new Subaru!”   Morgan from NH

Purchase or lease a new Subaru vehicle with no haggling, no negotiation, no pressure – just a great deal on a new Subaru! Save between $1,000 – $3,000 off the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP)* (depending on model and accessories). In addition, your VIP price will be further reduced by any applicable zone or regional cash incentives in effect at the time of purchase. Special rates may also be available to qualified buyers should you prefer to finance or lease your new Subaru. Generally, all model lines are included in this offer, however all sales are subject to availability and retailer discretion.

Am I Eligible?

To be eligible for the Subaru VIP Program, you must be an active member of Leave No Trace for at least six months at the annual $50+ level or as a monthly member of any amount prior to requesting a VIP form.

I can’t thank Leave No Trace enough for making my car buying experience stress-free and easy. The VIP Program gave me a haggle-free, invoice price on my new car. Both Leave No Trace and Subaru processed my request immediately, and I was in my new car within a week!”   Sharon from NY

What is the Process?

Once you have been a current member of Leave No Trace for six months, the process to take part in the Subaru VIP Program is very simple:

  1. Contact your local dealer: Ask if they participate in the Subaru VIP Program. Also, make sure they have the vehicle you would like in stock, or can order the vehicle.
  2. Contact the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics: Email [email protected] with the following information: Member ID Number (if you know it), Email Address, Phone Number, Home Address and the name of the Subaru Dealership you plan on working with.
  3. The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics will send a request into Subaru of America: Subaru VIP requests are submitted to Subaru Corporate every 1-3 business days. Once submitted Subaru Corporate will email both you and your dealership within 24 hours with a VIP Authorization form.

Other Important Information

The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics does not know the exact cost or savings of vehicles. All sales are left up to the dealership.

Usually all models are available for the VIP Program. However, newer models may not be — all sales are subject to availability and dealer discretion.

The savings (dealer invoice) is standardized from dealer to dealer. You just need to choose the dealership that is most convenient for you.

Subaru of America will contact the Subaru dealer of your choice to notify them that you are planning to purchase a new car and are eligible, as a Leave No Trace member, to buy the car at the Subaru VIP Partners Discount.
