    So I get my usual NOVA marketing is sending a package via UPS notification. I figure it's Drive or some other literature to hand out like it usually is. Turns out it was a pretty decent JBL bluetooth speaker with Ambassador branding and a thank you card. Must be their late Christmas gift? Anyone else?

    Got mine yesterday as well. Sitting at home charging right now, planning on trying it out when I get home. Super pumped about it as I was in the market for a small portable speaker.

    It's the gift that keeps on giving all year long! LOL, I ended up giving mine to my kid since my wife stuffed my stocking this year with the Bose equivalent. Don't need two ruggedized bluetooth jobs...

    Good timing as my last bluetooth speaker decided to bork. Thanks Subaru!

    Youre welcome, J!

    Not much, just little things like wheels/tires, audio, lights, protective vinyl film, etc... Loving it as is for what it is. Probably won't change much more unless I stop being able to run over/through things.

    PSA regarding the Ambassador website. I have unsuccessfully attempted to order five times in the past week. I sent an email to Staples support and they are still working on the problem as of this morning. These folks are really good to work with and they gladly took my order over the phone. It helped to have my order printed out and in front of me for that call so I could quickly rattle off what I wanted. Have your username and password hand as well as your ambassador ID if you know it if this is the route you are forced to go. -Rick

    I had the same issue, items in the cart but could not do the final check-out. Started over the next day and it failed again - I think it finally worked on the third day :) Good tip on calling in

    Any fellow Ambassadorial ladies and gents planning a contest in the near future? I had an idea for one but don't want to overlap.

    Also, don't forget your activity reports!

    So I had a cool Ambassador experience last night. I was going to a play at the U and as I pulled into the parking lot, I spied two '12-'14 model WRX (well one WRX and one STI) parked near each other. Unfortunately, there was a Camry between them so I couldn't create a trio so I parked by one and headed to the show.

    I came back from the show to find my car nestled between the two WRX/STI and at my front wheel was a Subaru gift bag with a cool hat, a couple of miniature WRB's (I have two car seats in my car) and a note from an Ambassador hoping my two kids liked Subies. Super cool gesture, and made my day.

    Not sure if it's anyone on here, but regardless it was a cool Subaru community story that I wanted to share.

    Subaru Day of Caring. June 16th

    Subaru has asked us Ambassadors to team up on June 16th to give back to the community in some fashion. I have annual training until that day with the National Guard, but depending on time may be able to partake in an activity later in the evening if anyone has any ideas.

    So we probably all got the email about the special gift for anyone that shares a coupon for the purchase of a 2019 Forester yadda yadda yadda, fret not because if like me you are out of coupons to share there is still hope:

    I think they're pushing sales of the 2018's because they have to get rid of them before the 19's come in.

    Has anyone come up with any suggestions for Day of Caring on 6/14 to do as a group? I'm terrible at such things.

    I think we should all parade around and spread the joyous song of the flat four to anyone that will listen.

    Sorry, sharing coupons on forums is not allowed. Your friend's best bet is to contact an ambassador they personally know. Or be introduced to one.

    Ok, I didn't know the updated rules.. Thanks for the heads up. I PM'd an ambassador I got the coupon for myself from, but no response yet.

    Don't forget to do your Monthly Check-In! I believe yesterday was the last day to submit your Day of Caring photos/notes, and the budget has been reloaded! Check out the new gear page - some great stuff!

    I'm thinking of putting on a scavenger/photo contest. Looking for two more ambassadors to kick in prizes. PM if you're interested.

    Coolest little surprise yet! It's been fun seeing the new Ascents on the road, but haven't had a chance to talk to an owner yet.

    I've run into a couple Ascent owners, and they've all been happy with them so far! I've already given away the Lego kits that HQ sent.

    I gave one of the Lego kits to my dad because he's a jigsaw puzzle nut and thought he might enjoy the challenge. There are a lot of tiny little pieces in there! It took him a week or so, but he sent me these pics last night.

    Pretty cool! And I didn't notice until he pointed it out, but the front RH roof rack piece is white instead of black.....wonder if they are all like that? LOL

    Surprisingly, no. Though I may have a hard time maintaining my level placement.

    The Ambassador forums are not happy.
