This Saturday & Sunday Only – Get $15 for Test Driving a Lincoln

Wouldn’t you know it? The day after I purchased a new car, Lincoln and Whole Foods got together to do a test drive for charity event. All you have to do is go to the Whole Foods in Tustin, CA and test drive any of the Lincoln cars there, and they will give you a $15 Whole Foods gift card for you to use in the store. In addition, another $15 will be donated to the Whole Kids Foundation. The more people they get taking test drives, the more money Whole Kids get.

The test drive last only five minutes and there’s zero sales pressure. It’s an easy way to lower your Whole Foods bill by $15, which at Whole Foods means you get a single bag of organic chips and chocolate bar for free (there’s a reason why the place is nicknamed Whole Paycheck).

The test drive gives $15 per driver. So if you bring a team down with you, everyone will get $15 and an equal amount will be donated to Whole Kids. It’s a great deal all around. However, you only have this Saturday and Sunday to take advantage of it so head on down to the Whole Foods parking lot in Tustin, CA and smoke the tires off those Lincolns!

BTW – This video was filmed, edited and uploaded to YouTube using the iPhone 4S. The photos were taken from the 4S, edited and uploaded to Flickr using the iPhone Flickr App. We’re getting closer to the day where one device can do everything.

  1. Can I use the “test drive” as transportation to & from Whole Foods?

    1. John Chow says:

      That would depend on how much press you can give them. I’m sure they’ll do it for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

    2. anaokulu says:

      I would like to test drive

  2. dg says:

    $15 to drive a Lincoln? Not worth it unless you want to look like an old retired person (the average age of a Lincoln driver is 62 years).

    1. PPC Ian says:

      I tend to agree, Lincoln is not the car for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

    2. Erwin Miradi says:

      Haha. I don’t mind testing a car that I would use 50 years later.

  3. Hello John this not clear to me yet, why Lincoln will pay $15 for test drive or we will pay?

    1. John Chow says:

      They pay you $15.

        1. John do you think such kind of marketing campaign can be successful …

          I mean involving people by paying them ?

        2. anaokulu says:

          very big money: P

      1. iskandarX says:

        Good charity event in there, and nice car John.

    2. Erwin Miradi says:

      If I were you, I’ll do the test drive first, grab the money, and then asking questions.

  4. That’s an excellent deal. They must have a lot of confidence in their cars. This is great marketing as well as initiative to give something back ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Car Picture says:

    whether this is something new, I just know this ..

  6. An old and well-proven way to sell cars. You get the customers who test drive a new car but maybe can not afford a new one, but buying a used instead of you.

  7. fas says:

    That is nice way of marketing, by urging buyers to test drive.

    1. PPC Ian says:

      Agreed, it’s nice to see auto companies trying new marketing techniques.

  8. fazal mayar says:

    nice marketing tactics i guess and the average age of 62 for a lincoln car is pretty funny stuff

  9. test drive + 15$
    is great

  10. panax says:

    15 $ good ๐Ÿ™‚ thank you john chow

    1. Erwin Miradi says:

      Well, it’s not John who’ll give you the money anyway.

      1. But he is showing you the path to earn it … that’s what the role of mentor …

  11. Erwin Miradi says:

    For charity, I don’t even have to be paid $15 just to test drive. I’ll test drive as long as you want if that’ll help the kids.

  13. konja says:

    Hey, I canโ€™t seem to find your email on here. I was wondering if youโ€™d change some of your code for me for a few bucks. If you get a chance, fire me over an email? Thanks.

  14. anaokulu says:
