You’ve probably been hearing a lot in recent months about the new Fred Beans Platinum AutoRewards membership, an exclusive program with more advantages and savings for our customers. And we’ll bet you have some questions. We hope this will help:
Q: Does the Platinum AutoRewards program replace the former Fred Beans AutoRewards?
A: No. The original five-year membership program with only slight changes—now called Basic AutoRewards—continues to be available at no charge to customers who purchase a new or used vehicle from any Fred Beans dealership. Platinum membership is a significant upgrade with more benefits and greater savings. A five-year Platinum membership starts at $495, based on regular oil, synthetic oil ($695) or diesel engine ($765).
Q: When I bought my Subaru Forester five years ago, I received a Basic AutoRewards card for free. No way I’m trading it in—I love this car!—so how can I renew my membership at the Basic level?
A: That’s easy. A new five-year membership is $69.95. Just see the cashier at our Subaru dealership. (And we’re glad you’re so happy with your Subaru!)
Q: Tell me, what’s different about Platinum?
A: Let’s start with what’s the same. Both memberships earn 15% of qualified purchases as points when you buy a new or pre-owned vehicle—in addition to manufacturer’s rebates and other incentives. Both give you the exact same savings with our more than 100 merchant partners in your area and the benefits of the Fred Beans Travel Awards Program. Both include lost-key return service, AutoRent vehicle upgrade, VIP courtesy transport, Collision Center towing service after an accident and two-day Collision Center loaner—all at no extra charge.
The differences? One significant advantage to Platinum is that it allows members to accumulate up to 5000 points—that’s a savings of $5000!—off a future vehicle purchase; Basic is limited to 2000 points or $2000. The additional $3000 savings alone more than pays for your membership.
Platinum membership also covers a variety of services that add up quickly for more savings: lube, oil & filter services (5), auto detailing (1), tire rotation (2), emergency (non-accident) towing service, paintless dent repair (1), flat tire repair (1) and Platinum service loaner vehicles. In addition, Platinum members receive 10% off tire purchases (up to $100 total savings), $15 off a four-wheel alignment and 10% off any accessory purchase (up to $100 total savings).
Basic provides one free PA State Safety inspection a year; Platinum, three a year. A Basic card is preloaded with 25 points and Platinum with 100 points. The first-swipe bonus is 25 points for Basic members and 50 for Platinum. The Friends & Family referral bonus is 100 points for Basic and 150 points for Platinum.
We want to reward your loyalty to Fred Beans Family of Dealerships…and we want to help you keep your vehicle safe and operating at peak performance. AutoRewards, and now Platinum AutoRewards, can help.
NOTE: The points you earn in the five years of your membership can be redeemed only during that membership period. Unredeemed points expire when your membership expires, without regard to when they were earned.
