My husband is going to buy the 2007 Mercedes E63 AMG. We checked out the car today and he really likes it. I don't really care about cars, as I hate driveing. So I have no comments on the purchase, as long as he likes it. While we are going home, my husband suddenly remember about the Saks First partner program with Mercedes: "When you purchase or lease a select new 2006 or 2007 Mercedes-Benz vehicle, receive a $1,000 Saks Gift Card. " I was so excited thinking maybe I can get a new Chanel with $1000 off or FREE Louboutin while my husband can get a new car. Both of us will be happy. Considering the car is a $97,000 vehicle, maybe we can even get 2-3 $1000 gift card!!! So when I got home, I immediately check out about the program. To my disappointment, "Offer excludes CLS Class, GL-Class, pre-owned, demonstrator, special edition, AMG, European Delivery sales, special order units, MY '07 S-Class and '07 CL-Class vehicles." I think this is so not fair. $100,000 can get me 3 C-class and therefore 3 gift cards. But instead I get NOTHING!!! Why would higher end models not qualify for gift card? Does people who can afford more expensive cars not care about $1000? Although my husband tried to please me by giving me gift certificate issued from him, still I am not happy. Have anyone here ever got the gift card with their mercedes purchase? Any idea why the higher end models excluded??
