New Program Rewards Service Technicians for Monroe Quick-Strut Unit Sales
Monroe, MI, Sept. 5, 2017 - Tenneco is giving automotive service technicians the chance to earn a $30 Visa® Prepaid Card* for each qualifying pair of Monroe® Quick-Strut® replacement strut assemblies installed during its “$30 in 30 Seconds” promotion, running Sept. 1 through Oct. 31, 2017.
 “The new fall promotion reiterates the benefits of these premium, guaranteed Monroe Quick-Strut replacement strut assemblies that are engineered and tested specifically for the vehicle,” said Andrew DeSmidt, promotions manager, Tenneco. “They feature a design that eliminates the need to disassemble components and compress a coil spring - speeding installation times and increasing service bay turnover. Service technicians can earn some extra money just as quickly through the ‘$30 in 30 Seconds’ promotion.”
Genuine Monroe Quick-Strut strut assemblies feature all of the individual components necessary for a complete, high-quality strut replacement. Each assembly includes premium Monroe strut technology, tuned and tested to help provide original equipment-style ride and handling; a vehicle-specific coil spring, corresponding to the OE spring design, featuring U.S. grade steel; premium, OE-style upper strut mount and bearing plate; and other high quality components.
Monroe Quick-Strut assemblies are covered by Tenneco’s limited lifetime warranty and the new Monroe “Feel the Difference” Guarantee, which promises consumers a positive difference in vehicle handling and ride quality when replacing worn shocks and struts within a 90-day/1,000-mile (1,600-kilometer) trial period or they can receive a refund for their purchase, including labor and alignment, if applicable, when performed by a service professional. Visit www.Monroe.com for program rules and restrictions.
To learn more about the Monroe Quick-Strut “$30 in 30 Seconds” promotion, please contact your Monroe Shocks sales representative and/or parts provider.
Completed scorecards and copies of sales invoices must be postmarked and mailed by Nov. 30, 2017 to Monroe “$30 in 30 Seconds” Service Technician Promotion Headquarters, 600 Main Street, P.O. Box 906, Tonawanda, NY 14150. Reward dollars are calculated based on qualifying product sales between Sept. 1 and Oct. 31, 2017 and the reward will be delivered on a Visa® Prepaid card after the program ends. Participants can earn up to $500 in rewards dollars through this promotion.
To learn more about Monroe products, contact your Monroe sales representative or parts provider. Learn more about Monroe ride control products by visiting www.Monroe.com.
