How far would you go for $25?

I received this invitation recently in the mail from Nissan, it states "Receive a $25 gift card when you test-drive a new 2009 Nissan vehicle." Okay, I thought, a $25 gift card is nice, but when I opened the invitation and saw it was a Target $25 gift card I got excited. The restrictions are pretty straight forward, "No purchase necessary. To receive gift card you must bring the invitation and take a test drive in a new and unused Nissan by 2/28/09 at a participating dealer. Must be 18 and have a valid drivers license."

We are not in the market for a new car and I'm not good at lying so I would be doing the test-drive simply for the gift card. Is that fair to the dealer? Am I just wasting their time? The auto industry is hurting right now like a lot of businesses and they are trying to drum up some business. But $25 at Target would be nice...

What do you think? Have you received this type of invitation recently? Would you take advantage of the offer?

  1. I've felt conflicted about these offers myself. I always end up not taking advantage of the offer and my conscience thanks me for it. :-)
