Does it really matter if car dealerships give their customers "thank you" gifts?
Don't take our word for it. Look at a few customer forums around the web, and people are very clear when they describe car buying experiences that stand apart from others:
What would be a nice gift from a car dealership to show customer appreciation? "Surprise me... [but] things that don't make nice gifts: License plate holders, I've thrown every one of them out. Cheap T-Shirts... Magnets". - Adam
"And one of my very best car-buying experiences - getting an '86 Dodge- involved a similar experience with another no-pressure kind of salesperson... AND, when we went to pick up the car, she had a bottle of champagne waiting for my wife and me. :)" -GreenGene
"You should be expecting gifts... dinner certificates, etc from [your car salesperson]" -Marmac
"On pick up day I got the car and she got big bunch of flowers, champagne, chocolates and a few nick nacks" -Mentos
"Don't take those mugs with BMW logo, they are pretty much garbage. I had a few of those and all of them were leaking after a couple uses." -py0413
Their satisfaction leads to your referrals.
"Probably the best gift [to thank him for being such a great salesperson in your car buying process] would be sincerely working hard to give him some referrals" -Retterkl
