I am a BMWCCA member and USAA member (insurance eligible). The BMWCCA website states the BMWCCA rebate cannot be combined with the USAA incentive; is this correct? My 550 is currently financed by BMWFS and my 335d was financed by BMWFS, but I paid it off early. Am I eligible for the Loyalty Cash on each car? If I order instead of taking immediate delivery on one or both cars, what are the effective dates for the incentives? Is there any advantage to lease/order one car in December and one on January 2nd? I may also do a European Delivery on the 650 depending on how ordering a car would affect the incentives.

In summary here's how I think it works; does this look correct?

Lease a 650xi with the following incentives:
$3,500 Holiday Credit
$750 Loyalty Cash
$1,000 BMWCCA (Rebate)

Lease an X5 with the following incentives:
$1,500 Holiday Credit
$750 Loyalty Cash
$700 BMW App
$1,000 USAA

Thanks in advance.

Dunderhi congrats. I just got back from my local dealer and inked a deal for a new x5M. I wanted to buy from a fest sponsor, but my trade in prevented that from working out. I am paying more than the fest sponsor quotes, but the dealer is giving me more than Carmax (because it is in mint condition and they want it for the CPO lot) for the trade so the comprehensive deal is better for me buying locally. We are so excited and cannot wait for it to get here. We snatched an open production slot that is getting ready to fall out of 112 status in the next two weeks and we should have it before the end of the year. While I was there I took a 650 convertible out for a spin. Wife and I both think that will replace the 535i down the road, but we are getting the x5M now. I wish I could answer all of your questions, but I cannot because I have never tried to buy two cars this close together. All I know is that the BMW app credit is 500 for the x5 and not 700 (it is 700 on the 650). Your loyalty and holiday numbers look correct. I am sure Justin or Greg can answer your other questions.
