John Deere honors military members with new discount program

In honor of the men and women who served or are currently serving in the United States military, John Deere announced March 10 the introduction of its Military Discount Program. Through its GreenFleet Loyalty Rewards, John Deere offers its Military Discount Program to current and former service members a free two-year Platinum membership.

Along with valuable equipment discounts, GreenFleet Loyalty Rewards Platinum members receive special financing options, workshop products discounts and other exclusive members-only benefits. Normally, a customer must purchase two pieces of qualifying equipment within a 12-month period to reach Platinum GreenFleet status. Military service members will automatically qualify by signing up through a membership form.

Those eligible for the program include members of the U.S. Army; the U.S. Navy; the U.S. Air Force; the U.S. Marine Corps; the U.S. Coast Guard; the National Guard; or reserves of these branches who are in active, reserve or retired status. Veterans who retired after 20 years of service and/or those who receive Veterans Affairs benefits are also eligible for the program.

“John Deere is a proud supporter of United States military service members,” said Steve Wilhelmi, John Deere tactical marketing manager. “As an American-made brand, we are thankful for the brave men and women who risk their lives to protect our freedom. The Military Discount Program is John Deere’s way of honoring and rewarding the commitment of the men and women who serve this nation.”

As a GreenFleet Loyalty Rewards member with Platinum status, customers are entitled to a number of benefits, including:

* Equipment Discounts: Savings on everything from mowers to tractors to Gator utility vehicles purchased at an authorized John Deere dealer.

* Workshop Discounts: A 10-percent discount off MSRP on eligible John Deere tools and workshop equipment — air compressors, generators, pressure washers and more.

* Special Member Financing: Money-saving finance offers are available year-round to Platinum members.

* Exclusive Member Promotions: Once eligible military members activate their Platinum member card, they will receive new exclusive offers every month in their GreenFleet email — along with insider tips and great ideas for enhancing their equipment experience.

Eligible men and women can sign up for the program by visiting the GreenFleet Loyalty Rewards Military Discount website. After entering their contact information and attaching the specified proof of military service, they will receive a new two-year membership. For customers with an existing membership, a military credit will be added to their account.
