VicVinegar said: Does anyone know if these expire? My nearest Subaru dealer also does Kia, but I won't need service for a while. For my other car, I need things I'd rather keep with my indie mechanic, but I did think about that too. Half price timing belt service would be nice, but a 200k Honda should probably be with someone who knows Honda. According to the T&C, the physical card expires, but you can call them an get a replacement. Presumably free of charge.
I ordered the card but yesterday when I was getting some tires installed at Wallyworld one of the techs told me that there's a place not far away that does alignments for $40.
I said "$40!?" He clarified "$40 and up... SUVs and big rims are more"
I'm going to head out there after I install my struts and see if the Kia Discover card will work at this shop. I have a feeling that its coded for automative/maintenance/repair rather than a dealership.

They probably would do it, they just might overcharge you for a GM filter or something. I'd make sure they do use the right filter, there are variations on the OEM filters.
I'm just going off the fact that when I mentioned my 200k mile Honda to the service manager at the Subaru/Kia dealer I use, they tried to get me to consider using them for service on the Honda. I also noticed a ticket on the counter for a Mercedes while I was there. He said they had a tech who knew Honda, maybe they had a tech who knew M-B too. Who knows.
I will try it at a Honda Dealership soon as I need a case of transmission fluid. If it works there then I can only assume that Dealerships have a unique merchant code. I'm willing to bet that most (if not all) of a dealerships CC transactions originate in the service center. Not many people are putting the cost of a vehicle on a CC.
Maybe I need to find a bigger auto shop.
I have to admit the one I used this morning was pretty shade-treesque but at $40 for an alignment I definitely am NOT complaining.
Wish I would have seen this earlier. I am looking at a new Kia and would have tried to work it on a new car purchase. I know there is a maximum that varies between dealers, but I would have gladly maxed it out.
