Ford Credit Card?

Holden has it, do you think Ford should have one too?
Would anyone here get one if they did?

I probably would get one just because im such a die hard fan even though the accountant in me says to go with who provides the best prices service etc.

i wouldn't (i don't have a CC and i don't want one) but i'd make my dad change over right away!

he's got a GM card because he's not much of a diehard ford fan (like yours truelly) and he and mum were gonna get an Astra. with the GM card rebate, he would have gotten $3000 or so off the price of the car. not a bad saving at all!

still, if ford brought out a CC, i'd make him get one! i hope ford would offer a similar incentive, where you can earn money you can use towards your purchase of a new car. $3000 of an AV XR8 would come in quite handy! :)

Wouldn't even pay for the premium brake kit!
I personally think they're a waste of time. The amount of money you need to spend to get any benefits is astronomical! Better off saving in the piggy bank than with these cards..

I have a GM card and have had the 3k for quite a while. Only I haven't bought a car with the money yet.

I asked Geoff P about such a card and he said it's not a possibility. Having said that Ford USA has one (or did).

I would get a ford credit card, if the benifits where worth while..

I got a telstra visa card at the moment, and every 6 months, I usually have enough points for $100 worth of petrol, and 4 movie tickets.

when I first bought the xr, I had enough points to get the windows tinted for free.

You have to spend lots to get whatever rewards these credit cards offer, I figure if you're a big spender regardless if you have a credit card or not might as well get something for it such as Kelli has... it might not be much but better than sweet F**K ALL

What about a Ford Credit Credit Card? :s3

I ready get at least a $3000 discount off a new car on top of what deal I can get through the military. So a Ford Credit Card with "Frequent Flyers" wouldn't interest me.
