Golden Ticket???

Hey all, total newbie here... What exactly is this golden ticket people keep referencing and how can one obtain it??? My Jeep is in D1 status and I'm trying desperately to scrape as much of a downpayment as I can! Thanks in advance for your patience with a newb.

Re: Golden Ticket???

A "golden ticket" is the name we all gave to the $500 discount coupons sent out by FCA. This is $500 off your best deal, since the money comes from FCA and not out of the dealer's pocket. They are locked to the name on the coupon, or someone who can prove they are an immediate family member living in the same house.


There seems to be no fixed rule on getting on the mailing list to receive one. Buying a FCA vehicle helps. So does asking for brochures. But neither is an absolute guarantee.


A batch was just sent out a few weeks ago (I got one). The next batch is probably several months away.

Re: Golden Ticket???

Are they sent in batches?

I received mine on July 5th in the form of an email from "Jeep Brand". I signed papers and took delivery of my 2016 Wrangler Unlimited on June 29th. So mine arrived about 6 days late.

I would say so based on the postings here of "I just got one" are done in batches.

Re: Golden Ticket???

I had requested brochures at the Jeep site. Then put down a deposit. That order got bounced back two weeks later. Jeep had stopped making Tank color. A short time later I got a golden ticket. It would have been useable had the order gone through. A month or two later, I got another golden ticket. Same ID number and expiration date as the first one. I re-ordered and finally got to use the ticket in early May.

Re: Golden Ticket???

When did you guys receive them? Was it at the same time as the others? I'm still kinda holding onto hopes Jeep might send me one before mine is built!

Keep in mind the colors you want. Jeep is very quick to cancel some. If you plan on getting an "always available" white, black, or silver then you can bide your time. But if you want any other paint that's available, you better order now. Yes, it's great to get $500 off your sale price, but I'd be willing to spend $500 to get the color I really wanted.

Aside from halogen headlights, 2017 will have a few new colors. But just like they did in 2016, specifics and availability of those colors is always a mystery.

My advice, if you see what you like now…. order now.

It would be cutting it pretty close, and Jeep tends to be picky about enforcing the expiration date. If your Jeep ships really close to the expiration date, you dealer might allow you to complete the purchase before it arrives, but with that, you'll be paying without actually seeing it first (risky).
