Since these were activities I was already planning to do, the promotions were a nice additional bonus. However, since I qualified for each promotion, I tracked them until the bonuses were received :-)
Overall, I am impressed with the timeliness of most of the bonuses. The Mazda promotion is the only one that is that took a long time (almost two months). The Ford Edge promotion was the fastest, being delivered in two weeks.
