Membership Contest

BMW CCA Membership Drive 2018

This is our club--your club!  Let's grow it...not accidentally, but actively--all year. The obvious reward will be more activities, more cars, ore friends, and more fun. But we'll reward you with more than that! Every month, every quarter and thhroughout the year, members can win great prizes for referring new members to the club!

Each month, the member with the most referrals will receive a free one-year BMW CCA membership renewal!

Each quarter, we will have a first, second and third place winner! To be eligible for the quarterly prizes, members just refer six for that quarter. Third place is $25 of merchandise in the BMW CCA store. Second place is $50 of merchandise in the BMW CCA store. Each of those recipients will also still receive their $5 in BMW CCA bucks for each referral to add to those prizes. First place prize for each quarter will include a minimum half-page member profile in Roundel Magazine and a $150 value Michelin swag bag!

But even if you're not winning one of those 24 prizes, there are annual drawings for which every referral generates an entry!

Recruiters Competition

BMW Performance Driving School1st Prize For the annual Recruiters Competition, every referral you make is an entry in the drawing for the first prize--a one-day M School at the BMW Performance Center, plus one night lodging for one, not including transportation.  And as an incentive to get your friends to join, when you refer them, they will be entered into their own drawing to win a one-day M School!

To be eligible, all you have to do is refer a minimum of ten new members over the course of the calendar year. Each referral is an entry into the drawing. 

EARN UNLIMITED BMW CCA BUCKS!

BONUS! For each new member that joins, referring members will receive $5.00 in BMW CCA bucks that can be used for the purchase of anything sold by BMW CCA or applied to CCA memberships. There is no limit to the amount of BMW CCA bucks a member may receive based on new member referrals.

About the Membership Drive
Each time a Club member successfully makes a referral during 2018, that member will be entered into a drawing for a one-Day M School, . For example, if John Smith refers eight new members in 2018, his name will be entered ten times for the drawing for the one-Day M School.

But try this if your friend isn't committing. "If you put down my referral number, then we both get entered into our own drawings for a one-day M School!" That's right, they will be entered into their own, too. For example, John Smith refers Jane Doe, who then joins the BMW CCA using John Smith's member number in the referral field. Jane, along with each other member referred in 2018, will be entered to win a one-day M School of her own!

The membership drive for 2018 runs though December 31, 2018.

The rules are detailed below. If you want to get credit for signing up a member, make sure the person adds your name and member ID to any paper or online form.  You can use www.bmwcca.org/join/###### with those 6 digits being your member number. You  can send or post that link and folks going through that link to join will be considered referred by you.

Official Rules

BMW CCA Membership Drive rules
These are the official rules and as such supersede any description listed elsewhere and any verbal communications.

The BMW CCA membership drive is open to current BMW CCA members.

New Membership Definition
A new membership is defined as a membership for an individual who has not previously belonged to BMW CCA, or an individual who was previously a BMW CCA member but whose membership lapsed at least six months prior to the date of the new membership. A new membership with a corresponding associate membership counts as one new membership.

Rewards for current BMW CCA members who refer new members
For each new member that joins, referring members will receive $5.00 in BMW CCA bucks that can be used for the purchase of anything sold by BMW CCA or applied to CCA memberships. There is no limit to the amount of BMW CCA bucks a member may receive based on new member referrals. BMW CCA bucks received in 2018 will expire on 12/31/2018 and have no cash surrender value.

New members can join:

  1. By calling 1-800-878-9292 to submit their application and credit card information over the telephone. The referring member's name and BMW CCA member number must be provided at the time the call is made.

  2. By visiting the BMW CCA web site and submitting an application online. To receive credit, the referring member's name and BMW CCA member number must be entered in the appropriate space on the online application form. There are two very easy ways to have someone join and earn a referral for yourself.  If you have a person scan the barcode on the back of your membership card, they will be taken to the join page and it will automatically fill in your member number for a referral! Or, you can give someone this easy link: bmwcca.org/join/memberID.  Just be sure to replace "memberID" with your member ID. If you are an associate member, please use your account number instead of your member ID. Account numbers are now listed on membership cards. If you haven't gotten a card recently, you can see your account number the Manage Account page.

  3. By mailing a membership application to the National Office. In order to receive credit, the referring member's name and BMW CCA member number must be written on the application. Membership applications/BMW CCA brochures are available from the National Office by calling (864) 250-0022 or sending an e-mail to sschlossman@bmwcca.org.

Deadline, Procedures and Restrictions
In order to be counted, the National Office must receive all new member applications no later than December 31, 2018. To be eligible for the monthly or quarterly prizes, new member applications for those periods much be received by the National Office by the last business day of that period.

If referred by a current BMW CCA member, a new member application must contain the name and BMW CCA member number of the referring member in order for the referring member to receive credit. Credit may not be applied retroactively. If a new member cancels their membership within 30 days of joining, the referring individual will lose credit for that membership. For this reason, monthly and quarterly awards will be totaled at or beyond 30 days after the conclusion of that period.

One night lodging provided for the one-day M School prizes is not to exceed $99/night, plus taxes, single occupancy.

If a new member is referred by a current associate member, the associate member will receive the $5.00 in BMW CCA bucks and be entered into the M School drawing.

BMW CCA bucks and other prizes will be awarded at the end of the program only to those who are members in good standing at that time.

Prizes

Monthly
The monthly winner for member with the most referrals each month wins a one-year BMW CCA membership renewal.  Ties will be resolved by a drawing among the members tied for most referrals that month.

Membership Driver Award
Grand Prize ("Membership Driver Award")
 This will include a $500 value Griot's car care kit, a $1,200 Michelin tire certificate, AND a two-day M School at a BMW Performance Center, including two nights lodging! (minimum ten referrals required through the calendar year to be eligible.) 

Those with ten or more referrals will be entered into the Grand Prize drawing and not into the first, second and third prize drawings of the Recruiters Contest.  Each referral will be an entry into the drawing for the Grand Prize. 

Eligibility
To be eligible for the drawings, current BMW CCA members must be paid members in good standing through December 31, 2018 (that is, they may not be members by virtue of being "comped" by BMW CCA or a BMW CCA chapter). Members may not receive referral credit (drawing eligibility or BMW CCA bucks) for comped new members.

BMW CCA members who are members of the National Board of Directors, paid employees of BMW CCA, Roundel senior staff, and members of their immediate families or households are eligible for referral reward incentives, but are not eligible for the first prize or the grand prize.

Please note that memberships purchased by dealers for their customers are not eligible. This exclusion is in effect even if a current BMW CCA member is listed on the application as a referrer. However, employees of BMW dealerships are eligible to win prizes and earn BMW CCA Bucks by referring members who purchase their own membership.

Referral credit will not be given to applications received without the referring member's BMW CCA member number. BMW CCA members will be able to track their referrals by accessing their personal information through the BMW CCA web site. BMW CCA bucks awarded under this program will be mailed to members within 45 days of the end of the Membership Drive.
