It’s well-known that the best way to maintain the integrity, safety, and performance of Mercedes-Benz vehicles is by always using Genuine Mercedes-Benz replacement parts. Doing so was recently made an even better business decision with the introduction of the StarParts program, which offers independent repair shops a more cost-competitive line of the most common replacement parts.
And now comes StarRewards, a brand-new program that actually pays you to buy parts from your local Mercedes-Benz dealership’s parts department.
StarRewards is an appreciation program for wholesale mechanical and collision customers. It’s a rebate program that is based on parts purchases, and there is no cost to enroll. It’s a tiered program designed to reward increases in purchases over previous 3-month (quarterly) periods. The more you buy, the more you earn. Rewards are provided in the form of a MasterCard debit card, and can be used for purchases of any kind of products or services from businesses that accept this card.
Virtually all purchases of Genuine Mercedes-Benz parts and accessories qualify for the StarRewards program, including the recently-introduced line of price-competitive StarParts.
Enrolling in the program couldn’t be simpler. You simply go online to www.MBStarRewards.com and register. Enrollment is fast and free. Your purchases will automatically be tracked on a quarterly basis, and you can monitor your purchases on your own dashboard at the website.
Once you’ve enrolled your shop and your credentials have been verified, Mercedes-Benz will use your purchase history to establish quarterly targets for you to reach. As you surpass these targets, you will receive rebates of as much as three percent of your purchases for the quarter. Your purchases will be tracked automatically, and your reloadable gift card will be updated with your new rewards. There’s no limit to the dollar value of the rebates you can earn.
It’s as simple as that!
And there are not a lot of complex rules to deal with. The StarRewards program is available to single-location independent repair facilities, including both mechanical and collision shops. Only one person per shop may enroll, and purchases must exceed $200 in a given quarter in order to qualify for StarRewards in the subsequent quarter. While there is the usual legal fine print, there’s really not much more you need to know to enroll and participate, and all the details can be found at MBStarRewards.com.
This new StarRewards program is Mercedes- Benz’s way of showing its appreciation for your choosing to buy replacement parts from your local dealership’s parts department. Mercedes-Benz is committed to building the finest vehicles in the world, and is also committed to supporting the independent service sector with replacement parts of OE quality, fit, and finish. Likewise, Mercedes-Benz is committed to supporting our partners in the independent service sector with products, programs, and incentives that allow ISPs to provide their customers with the highest quality service and repairs possible, while maintaining the profit margins dictated by the nature of small businesses that form the foundation of the independent service sector.
It doesn’t stop here. The recent introduction of the StarParts and StarRewards programs represents the creative ways being offered to auto repair and collision repair shops to thank them for their business. Additional programs are already under development to make this partnership an even better business proposition for these important customers in the repair industry. You’ll be happy to know that participants in the StarRewards program will automatically be enrolled in future programs developed to enhance the business relationship between Mercedes-Benz dealership parts departments and their valued wholesale customers.
