Members of Leave No Trace are eligible for Subaru's VIP Partners Program.
Save between $1,300 and $3,300 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.
To be eligible for the Subaru VIP Program, you must be member of Leave No Trace for over six months.
Once you have been a member of Leave No Trace for over six months, the process to take part in the Subaru VIP Program is very simple:
1. Contact Peter at the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics before shopping for the car or contacting a Subaru dealership.
2. Provide the following contact information:
Member ID Number (If you know it)
3. The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics will send a request into Subaru of America. In a day or so, Subaru of America will email you and your dealership a Dealer Visit Authorization form.
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 minus 2%) is standardized from dealer to dealer. You just need to choose the dealership that is most convenient for you.
I have just joined Leave No Trace; can I buy my Subaru for the VIP discount?
Unfortunately, not yet. Subaru of America requires you to be a member of Leave No Trace for 6 months before you qualify for this benefit.
I am a Leave No Trace member and I just bought a new Subaru, how do I claim my benefits?
Unfortunately, this benefit cannot be applied retroactively.
How much does that actually save me?
The exact amount will vary depending on the model and package you purchase or lease, but the savings can be substantial.
What exactly do I get from Subaru?
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. Subaru of America will also mail you a certificate showing you are eligible to receive Dealer Invoice Cost on any new Subaru. This must be presented when you enter the Subaru dealership.
How many cars can I purchase at this price?
Leave No Trace members are limited to two (2) new vehicles within a 12 month time period.
I'm interested in a dealer demo car; does the benefit still apply?
No. The only vehicles eligible are NEW. The definition of a new vehicle is one that has never previously been titled or reported as sold and generally has less than 100 miles on it.
Aloha! Is this offer good in Hawaii?
Unfortunately, dealerships in Hawaii are not participating in this offer.
Are there any additional costs I might have to pay?
The Leave No Trace member purchasing the car is responsible for freight, accessories and all applicable federal, state and local taxes, as well as license and municipality registration fees.
Are family members eligible for Leave No Trace members VIP Partners Program?
While VIP Partners referrals are only issued to Leave No Trace members, immediate family members including spouses and domestic partners residing in the same household are eligible, subject to dealership verification of membership status and address.
Can Leave No Trace members in other countries take advantage of this too?
Unfortunately, this is only open through participating dealerships in the United States.
Is this offer open to any vehicle?
Yes. BUT, the final decision of which models are available is left to individual dealer discretion.
