Since these were activities I was already planning to do, the promotion is a nice additional bonus. However, now that I qualified for each promotion, I am tracking them until the bonuses are received :-)
Overall, I am impressed with the timeliness of most of the bonuses. The Mazda promotion is the only one that is still outstanding, but it is still within the 6-8 week time frame.
