AUSTIN, Texas, June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- After college graduation, alumni must prepare for the next chapter in their lives. With school expenses plaguing their bank accounts, students often feel the pressure of the real world the moment they receive their diplomas. Austin Honda dealership, Howdy Honda, wants to make the transition from student to professional much easier by offering the Honda College Graduate Bonus. This gives graduates $500 toward any new 2013, 2014 or 2015 model year Honda when they finance or lease with Honda Financial Services (HFS).
Drivers who have graduated within the last two years or plan to graduate within the next six months with a master's, bachelor's or associate's degree from a U.S.-accredited college or registered nursing school are eligible for the Honda College Graduate Bonus. Graduates must bring in a copy of their diploma or college transcripts to Howdy Honda as proof of graduation eligibility.
Graduates must also meet the HFS standards and criteria in order to receive the Honda College Graduate Bonus. This means drivers sign an HFS retail finance, Honda Leadership Leasing or Honda Leadership Purchase Plan contract. They must also make a five percent down payment, have a positive credit history and have proof of consistent monthly income. This ensures graduates have the means to comfortably afford living expenses and automotive payments.
Once graduates have qualified for the Honda College Graduate Bonus, they are able to select from a wide variety of new Honda available at Howdy Honda. Staples like the CR-V, Accord and Civic can be purchased to make the transition into the real world more confident and exciting. Drivers can also look forward to vehicles like the 2015 Honda Fit and HR-V set to arrive later in the year.
To take advantage of the Honda College Graduate Bonus, drivers can contact the team at Howdy Honda for more information. To schedule a test drive for a new Honda, visit the dealership online or on site today.
