BMW Gift - Ultimate Benefits card

I bought my X3 in December 2012. Today I got in the mail a very nice box from BMW in it, but all it has inside is a plastic card for "BMW Ultimate Benefits" and a website to visit.

I go to the website and it's something I've had access to for a long time on the owner's section of BMW's website.

Is this the new BMW gift now? I was not impressed.

I also received one in the mail last week. When I saw the card I said to myself "so whats the big deal". For the price we pay for a new BMW you would think they could at least give us a 50% off coupon for something.

AMG gives you a free $2k driving academy course! In 2009 they also gave you a $100 Saks gift card, didn't get that for my latest in 2012.

Haven't gotten anything from BMW yet, but a link to a site is pretty lame. Hotel voucher would be cool. USB guessing more likely.

I got a USB BMW key with my last x3. I liked that.

I leased my X3 in November and I have yet to receive anything. I Did receive a DVD box with BMW's history and detailed info about the E90 series when I leased my 2011 E90

When I bought my Audi, they gave me a $200 Bang and Olufsen ear bud in the mail. BMW really need to step it up in the gift department.

My first BMW (2006 325) came with a nice leather portfolio that fit in the glovebox. My 2012 X3 came with the uSB key--great for loading music on and plugging into the car. This plastic card with my 2013 X3 has me mad--I emailed BMWNA and told them that it sucks.

I should note though, my dealership for both X3s gave me nice gifts. I got a coffee mug and two polo shirts for each purchase.

I got a nice BMW Roundel tin filled with home made chocolate chip cookies!

I also got that box with the BMW credit card thing in it. Talk about overdoing the packaging, sheesh. 3 lbs of packaging for 3 grams of plastic.

Ditto plus the USB key. The rendering is nicely hanging in the office.

Got the USB key. Just a bit oversized, no?

Got the rendering, not crazy about it.

I prefer the 1:18 model that I found on eBay. BMW P/N 80 43 2 162 525.

We got 2 tickets to Wentworth top see the BMW Golf, where we also get priority parking (all BMWs do) and access to the two free refreshment areas. Made good use of them and had 2 great days.

The model is cool thought of getting one and one of my 328 but my boss has models of all his cars on his desk. I agree about the USB key. The real fob is already big enough. I actually also got a second rendering just a couple weeks ago. This one looks like an X1 head on. Oh well looks cool in my office (along with several Pats, Sox, Bruins, Celetics photos)

I'd have rather gotten nothing. I was somewhat excited to open it up, and inside was just a plastic card directing me to a website. What a letdown.
