SAN DIEGO, Calif., November 20, 2007 - Costco members this holiday are able to treat themselves to more than just great Costco pricing on the 2008 Volvo XC90. The Costco Auto Program is offering members the opportunity to rack up significant savings and benefits on purchases or leases made through participating Volvo dealerships between November 26 and December 31, 2007. Accompanying the savings is the opportunity to earn a $500 Costco Cash Card.
Two purchase options are available during this limited promotion. Members who contact the Costco Auto Program can purchase or lease a 2008 XC90 at their neighborhood Volvo dealership and receive the Volvo Employee Price, plus receive an added $1,000 discount, compliments of the Costco Auto. Members will also be able to take advantage of any manufacturer rebates and incentives available on the vehicle at the time of purchase. The Rear Seat Entertainment System currently included in leases of the XC90 at no charge by Volvo Cars of North America is being extended to Costco members for both purchase and lease during this promotion.

The second is an Overseas Purchase Option which includes a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience a European Vacation Package with a zero price tag.

After taking a tour of the factory, the member and a companion will be flown to a city of their choosing - Rome, Paris or London - to continue a European vacation, compliments of the Costco Auto Program. Included in the package is roundtrip airfare for two and accommodations in Gothenburg, plus the additional airfare and luxurious accommodations in the member's city of choice.
