Loyalty Programs and Incentives

When I signed for my car I was given the $1500 lease credit and $750 loyalty fee towards my payment. I just noticed on the BMW website that there is a Turn Key program ($500 credit) and a Graduate Loyalty program ($1,000 credit) can I combine all these incentives together when I pick up my car or is there a limit on the number of incentives that can be combined? As I have read the fine print it seems I am eligible for all these incentives.

So will I be ok to negotiate the remaining incentives (Pull Ahead program and Graduate program) the day I go to pick up the car or is this something to worry about beforehand?

I negotiated this before ordering the car. Actually, I negotiated the price of the car first then threw in the incentives. The incentives are your's to have if you qualify and find out about them. I usually dont rely on BMW telling me about all the incentives that come up. My CA told me that the incentives lock in when you first fill out your credit app. If incentives or lease rates change for the better, then I can change to them before the car has arrived, but only once. I dont know if changing only once is really a rule or not.
I would definately call your CA and lock in the incentives before they possibly expire or let him know he will be stuck with a car on his lot (if thats how you want to negotiate of course).
BTW, I always have the best luck and the easiest buying experience dealing with the internet sales CA's in person rather than the sales department - they are usually pretty up front and less likely to haggle. No back and forth between you, the CA, and the sales manager in some other room.
Good luck!

My 335is just arrived from Germany and I just found out about the Turn key $500 credit. These are factory incentives and not out of the dealers pocket. They are non-negotiable and the dealer has to honor them if you qualify. I personally negotiate the price of the car as low as possible then apply the incentives as the icing on the cake and get it all in writing on your retail order worksheet. Anything after the fact probably has to be dealt with when you take delivery. Just be careful they don't try to slide 'something' in when they rework the numbers.
