The Jeep one is new to me.

Thanks....could always use $50.00 and a savings bond comes in handy every once in awhile too.

Is it money I can use or more like an investment thing?

Heh, did you notice the urls are almost exactly the same (except the domain of course). Try:
for $50 on durango test drive.

looks like you have to pick one test drive out of the list since it is one per program (CDJDPN) and all the test drive's have the same program number. I'm choosing the Chrysler one myself for the $50 spendable gift card.

No the certificates mention 1 of each particular offer. They all have different mailing addresses/phone numbers. My guess is that they are using the same promotion/fulfillment company to satisfy all the offers.
kewlio: To answer your question a savings bond is when the government borrows your money and pays you interest on it (it's an investment). You can buy a $50 savings bond at your bank for $25, and in 5-10 years it will "mature" and be worth the full face value. Any time inbetween there you can cash it in for its current value, say in 5 years it may be worth $35 or something.

I would have to agree with cratervalley...each deal looks seperate and in the fine print it mentions nothing about combining offers. Also, even though they're all one company I believe Dodge, Jeep, and Chrysler are seperate entities of the parent company. I'm not sure if one dealer will validate all three test drives in one sitting but I think they'll all work out in the end.

And I would have to disagree with cratervalley. Read the restrictions again; It clearly states that only one certificate may be redeemed "per person, per program."
Now look at the certificates that print out - each one has a certificate # and a "Program #" -- the Program # on every certificate (that is, every Jeep certificate, every Dodge certificate and every Chrysler certificate) is CDJDPN.
All the mailing addresses for redemption are P.O. Box 5078, Troy, MI., regardless of the make of car.
So, every certificate goes to exactly the same p.o. box and every certificate is part of the exactly the same program (CDJDPN.) I think that the one-per-program restriction pretty much clears up any doubt.

I stand corrected, on a quick glance it looked as if the program rules were different. Still it doesn't hurt to try. Most of the dealerships I go to get these things validated don't even require me to actually do the test drive. I tell them I am not even interested in buying a car, and they spare me the spiel.
I'd get them all validated (at different dealerships of course) and mail the other two on the day of the deadline. And notice it does say "per person" and not "per household" so nothing is stopping you from putting your wife's name, roommate, etc. on them.
I highly doubt they are going to check all these with a fine-toothed comb as I am sure they are processing at least a few hundred per week.

I know the Nissan test drive program checked. I got a letter from them before.

Well even though all the links are now dead, I went to a Dodge, Plymouth, Jeep, Eagle dealer. I didn't even have to test drive the vehicles in question. The dealer filled out all the vouchers for me. I asked the manager who gave the final approval what the odds were of getting all three back and he told me I should get them all back because they are for all different makes. He then explained to me that if I had to Dodge vouchers, I would have to pick which one I want. Whether he is right or wrong, they validated all of them and it doesn't hurt to send them in.
