College Student Purchase Program

college student purchase program

Lance Cunningham Ford has created one of the most appealing purchase programs for college students. We understand that college graduates have a difficult time receiving approval for automobile financing. It boils down to the same Catch-22 college graduates face in the job market. You've already heard by now at least one potential employer say, "You don't have enough experience to warrant a job offer."  Well, you can't gain experience, unless a company offers you a job. The same principle applies to auto loans that require you to build credit, before you can sign on the auto loan dotted line.


How can you build credit, if automobile dealerships keep turning you down for financing? At Lance Cunningham Ford, we have solved the Catch-22 caused by auto loans.

An eligible college student that purchases a new 2017-2018 Ford Car, SUV or Truck through F-350 during the purchase program period receives a rebate of $500. Combine the $500 rebate with Student Bonus Cash, and you have a veritable financial windfall.
