What You Need to Apply

Before you can start shopping for your new car, truck, or SUV, you’ll need to bring the proper documentation, so we can process your military or first responder rebate. Be sure to bring the following documents/forms of identification: 

  • Leave and Earnings Statement (LES)
  • Military ID Card 
  • DD-214 Veteran ID
  • DD Form 2 Retried ID (blue form) 
  • ID issued by department (if first responder) 

Buying vs. Leasing

The Military & First Responders Bonus can be claimed whether you plan to lease or buy. What’s the difference? Here’s a quick breakdown of the benefits of both, as well as what to consider before you make a decision: 

  • Buying: Most Brooksville car buyers need to apply for financing. When you finance a car, you’ll make monthly auto loan payments with interest. Eventually, once the loan amount is repaid, the car title will be transferred to you. Initially, buying is more expensive than leasing, but you can make upgrades to the car and sell it down the road if you choose. 
  • Leasing: Due to its lower monthly payments and down payments, leasing is regarded as the more affordable option. Our finance team will help you secure lease terms and rates that make sense for you, and when the lease is up, you’ll have several options. Explore our current $400-$500 and $500+ lease offers today!
