Decisions, decisions, decisions—we make thousands of them every day. When it comes to car shopping, one of the biggest decisions you can make is where to buy or lease, especially when you’re fresh out of college. Fortunately, Honda Financial Services (HFS) has removed the guesswork with the Honda Graduate Program. Per the program, qualified upcoming and recent college grads can save $500 on any 2017 or newer Honda vehicle when they finance or lease with HFS[1].

What Do You Need to Qualify?

There are a few things Inglewood and Santa Monica college grads will need[2] to earn the $500 promotion, including:

  • Proof that you’re employed or a firm commitment from an employer (start date no more than 120 days from date of finance contract)
  • Proof that you’ve graduated in the past two years or will graduate in the next six months
  • Meet Airport Marina Honda’s credit and document requirements
  • No negative credit history

What Else is Offered?

In addition to $500 to put toward buying or leasing, qualified Los Angeles drivers will enjoy the following benefits[3]:

  • Option to defer first payment 90 days (only available with traditional financing)
  • Opportunity to improve credit
  • Versatile financing and leasing packages
