Fond du Lac County Farm Bureau board member, Rural Mutual Insurance policyholder and former fifth-generation dairy farmer Jim Kelroy took advantage of the Ford Farm Bureau member benefit for the first time to purchase a F-150 XLT truck from Countryside Ford in Columbus, now Napleton Ford.
The Farm Bureau Ford Bonus Cash is exclusive for active Farm Bureau members who are residents of the United States. Members receive $500 Bonus Cash on the purchase or lease of an eligible new 2021/2022/2023 Ford Maverick, Ranger, F-150 or Super Duty®. Some customer and purchase eligibility restrictions apply.
Jim and his wife, Marlene, have been Farm Bureau members for more than 40 years. Jim is semi-retired with several part-time jobs including crop adjuster, seed salesman and provides part-time relief for area sales managers at CentralStar Cooperative. The Kelroys have two adult sons and five grandchildren.
“This was our first time using the Ford Farm Bureau benefit and it was extremely easy to use,” said Jim. “Our salesperson was fully aware of the Farm Bureau discount and wasn’t too pushy. It was a great buying experience.”
Jim added that he saved $500 off the final agreed on price.
“I’ve shared my experience with the Farm Bureau member benefit with anyone who has asked about my new truck, hopefully encouraging additional members if he or she isn’t a member already,” said Kelroy. “If you are looking for a new Ford vehicle, purchasing a Farm Bureau membership for $50 to $60 to save $500 certainly makes sense.”
Jim added that he has used other Farm Bureau member benefits, such as carrying Rural Mutual Insurance coverage on his family’s farm and other member benefits when the opportunity exists.
You must be a Farm Bureau member for 30 consecutive days prior to purchase or lease and take new retail delivery from an authorized Ford Dealer’s stock by Jan. 3, 2024.
