Question...for the tread lightly discount I know you have to be a member for the 30 days to use it. If join the tread lightly membership today and I order a Jeep today, but it doesn’t arrive for like 5-6 weeks, will I be able to use the tread lightly discount since financing won’t be set up until that time?

I joined Tread Lightly on the 19th of February 2021. Ordered my Wrangler on 26 February and took delivery on the 29th of March.

Not even a week after ordering, my Jeep was in status F, paint. I was worried it would come in before the 30 days was up.

Luckily the shipping stage of the transaction took longer than I expected and it all worked out fine.

I was able to log into the affiliate site about 2 weeks after joining. This was before I got my letter in the mail. Also able to generate the control code. Joined on March 19th, generated the code on April 2nd and I believe I could have done it earlier.

Ordered the Jeep on March 22nd, it’s in shipping status and dealer says it will be there next week.

It still not valid until it’s 30 days. Other have done this and gotten a letter with a bill for the 1%.

Some dealers may require the code to order, but that is something you will have to discuss with the dealer.

I can tell you for future, if you were a tread lightly member (like you bought a prior jeep with it) and you let your membership lapse. When you join again, do a renewal and as soon as they send you your paperwork you're eligible for the discount because your start date is that of the original joining.

Are the other benefits worth anything? Dealer said they would give me an additional .5% with Tread lightly (i was already at 7.5%). I ordered end of March so probably right on the edge of 30 days. I have to fly in anyway so I could probably wait a week or two if I needed to. Seems like a lot though for $230-100
