So I bought a 16 bike and filled for the blu cru rewards and all went well. They issued me a card and put 5 bucks on it.

So here's the deal it's been well over a month and nothing else was added. I should be getting the 500$ back. I can't find any contact for customer support or anything like that.

Anyone have any ideas or have this problem?

They did the same thing when I got mine. The 500 came a few weeks later.

You have to read closely ......They give up to $500 not every one will be Eligible for it. I would say 98% of people will get only $45 and the 2% gets the $500 or maybe just the 1%. 

Consider yourself the extreme elite for getting the $500.

 

I have only bought Yamaha YZ's since I started back racing in 2003.  An 03 YZ125, 05 YZ250, 06 YZ450, 2010 YZ450, 2011 YZ450 and my newest a 2015 YZ250 (2-stroke)  Have raced for 12 years straight in a row, 18 rounds a year and I only got $45

 

You would think their Broke A$$ could atleast afford to give $100.   I just about called em up and told them to just to keep the $45 that they needed it more than me.

You will get the rebate on your new bike like they told you. I bought 2 YZ250fs with $300 rebate each it took 5 months to recieve the $600.

Contact your dealer, and make sure you filled out the rebate request properly. I thought I had filed it and hadn't. I called the Yamaha cust service line and they sent me to a different contact that helped me thru the form.

Trust me, nothing will get done about it unless you are incessant and MAKE it happen.  The point of "rebates" is counting on the customer not actually getting them.  

 

This is the only thing that would prevent me from buying another Yamaha.  That was just infuriating to deal with.

Does the blue credit come on only certain bikes? How do qualify?

its a rewards program if you buy a new bike. I think there is more to it than just that but that's the part that concerned me.

Ty everyone for the feed back

Um, really? You might wanna go back to your dealer and start there. That's where the Blu Cru stuff starts.

I had no problem getting the blu cru money on our 2014 yz250f or our 2016 yz250f and yz450f. Had the money with in 6 weeks. Now here's what's bs about the blu cru. I got a 1099 tax form from Yamaha for the 2016 bikes. I called yamaha and I have one woman telling me I'll have to pay taxes on the money and another woman telling me it was a mistake. I'm supposed to hear back from Yamaha on Monday in regards to whether or not it was a mistake.

https://www.yamahamotorsports.com/sport/blucru/claimform here is the link to a list of eligible models, purchase dates and amounts.

I had no idea this was even available. Not happy with my dealer at the moment, but I still have time. The link you provided wants my last name and ssn. It's not working. Does my dealer register me? Or do you know how to register? I have about 20 days to get this in. Edited by RMK800

When I got my bike I filled out all the paper work at the dealership. I actually had to aware them of this program back when the 2014's first came out, your dealer simply may not know about it.

There is a off-road contingency registration form, is that how I register? Is the 500 rewards visa only can be purchased on Yamaha stuff or is it like a loaded debit card for 500

I've already bought the bike on Dec 29, I still hope I can do this.

Oh I also got a giant bag of goodies that came with the program too. Stickers, beanie, key chains, t-shirt, bag, banners etc. I made sure every one of my friends KTM's and trucks they arrived in had a giant Blu Cru sticker somewhere on it! Not sure if Yamaha is still doing this or not though. Worth checking into.

It's a debit card you can use on anything. I don't recall filling out the contingency form but it has been over two years. You don't have to race to be eligible anyways.

Ok, thanks for the info. The web site does say I have to be a registered contingency racer. I just did that, but at the end it says I need to send in a irs form w-9. It says this is required to complete. Im confused because I don't plan on picking up any race winnings :) Edited by RMK800

      Hi there ! 
      I'm currently looking for a used 125cc 2 strokes between 2000 and 2007.
      ME: I'm form Québec/Canada,  I'm a 5.4 foot tall, i weight 130, i mostly ride trails(on dirt, sand, rocks) but i really like to jump, climb on some small rocks(a bit like trial) , and i do ride enduro style too. 
      I CURRENTLY RIDE: an XR200a 1984 (with absorber) i really like that bike, it's undestructible and i can ride for ages with one tank. The downsides are the suspensions and the speed limit.
      I WANT: a light, 2stroke, 125cc, which i can use all around. I want to pay max 3000$cad. 
      I did some research and found that the YZ 125 is a pretty notorious bike, and more notorious are the 2006+ because of the suspension, motor, weight, improvements. That being said, i'm not close for any other brand. The one thing i'm concerned with is the gas consumption. I can do 2, 3 rides with my XR(4stroke, of course) before it got bone dry. I don't ask for the same results but i just don't want it to run out after 1 1/2hr -2hrs ride. I would really like a bike i can easily find parts.
      During my reseach i fell on a steel vs ali frame thread, i'm also concerned about it. Being a Vintage dirtbike rider ATM i can say i love the way it feel. I tried my friend 2017 TE300 and it was great but it felt like the bike was SOOOOOO DAMN STIFF !! OMG, myself being small and light, i wasn't comfortable AT ALL on it. I don't think i could see a difference between a steel and an ali frame and i wonder if i could see a difference between 2002 Yz vs 2007 YZ's suspension too ??
      HOW MUCH should i pay for a STOCK bike between 2000 and 2007 ?? (i know there can be that bike which as been redone and all, but just overall stock )
      Anyway, i  probably forget to write some lil thing but overall this is it, i'm looking for a 125, 2t !!!
      Thanks you very much for your time ! have a nice day

      I'm finally getting the chance to go to the dunes in Oregon and cant decide weather I should run a 8 or 10 paddle tire on the back of my 81 YZ465 2stroke. Suggestions? Pros and cons for each? Thanks!
