To celebrate the return of America’s troops from overseas deployments, Toyota and Lexus are both offering special promotions and discounts for those needing a new car back at home.

Men and women in uniform can take advantage of special financing offers on new vehicles as well as receive cash-back rebates so long as they jump onto the deal in time. Toyota is offering a 1.9-percent APR promotion for up to 60 months on new 2011 and 2012 models and a $500 military rebate comes along with it. Purchases need to be made before March 5, 2012 in order to take advantage of the low APR financing, but the rebate will last until January 2, 2013.

Lexus on the other hand will be offering military personnel 0.9-percent APR loans on 2011 and 2012 vehicles from their ES, IS lines and the 2012 RX350. All other vehicles from Lexus can be financed at 1.9-percent APR and Lexus will give a rebate of $750 to new buyers. The loan offer expires on February 29, 2012 while the rebate will run until March 31, 2012.

Of course you’ll have to qualify for the low APR financing and all applicants must be on active duty in the US Military or US Military Inactive Reserve. Retired military personnel are not eligible. You can find a dealer participating in the “Welcome Home Special APR Program” by looking up your closest dealer at www.toyota.com/dealers and www.lexus.com/dealers and giving them a ring. Financing must be done through either Toyota Financial Services or Lexus Financial Services.
