Get a Free Canoe!
April 1st, 2014
by John Rich

A local Volkswagen dealership is offering unusual free accessories to purchasers of new Volkswagen Beetle automobiles.  The unusual offer comes from Hempstead Volkswagen in Hempstead, Texas, northwest of Houston.  The owner of Hempstead Volkswagen is Otto Sickinger, an avid outdoorsman and canoe fisherman.  In order to encourage healthy outdoor recreation, he will throw in a free canoe or kayak with the purchase of every new Beetle. 

Otto knows that people are picky about what kind of boat they prefer, just like they are about what kind of car they prefer.  So if you don't like one of the new canoe models he keeps on standby in his lot, he'll give you a $1,000 discount on your vehicle to apply towards the purchase of your own preferred canoe.  

This offer is good through June 30th, 2014.  So if you've been thinking about a new car, and could also use a new canoe (and who can't?), then now is the time to act!  This offer would go a long way towards mitigating the high price of one of those fancy lightweight kevlar canoes.

Click the photo above to go to the dealer's web site for directions, and see more details on this offer.
