Well, since I don't have my tC yet, I don't have an answer for you... I'll try to ask next time I'm at the dealership... Sorry I couldn't help, but I wanted to give you a response & to welcome you to the site!
The answer I got was that the sales reps are given promotional gear like keychains, t-shirts, bags, etc. but they're not really supposed to give them out... They will if they have extras on hand, but it's not a guarantee that you'll get something w/ your car.
Hehe...I put a deposit down on my car June 29th and I've got the keychain ordered through the accessories link on www.scion.com. I didn't even think about it being a little freebie form the dealership, though.
Ah well, guess if I do get a freebie I can use it for a spare key. Doh.
keychain not necessary.....makes your pockets bulge even more...you only show the keys when you get into your car, so your pride and joy will be there to show itself off....no need to be queer and wear it everywhere you go. you might as well wear that TC shirt to the office, so all the co-workers look at you briefly, then immediately look away to hide their feelings of shame for your. ....But maybe that's just me.
Nah, I get keychains to actually hold keys....I have a full loop for my work keys I have to carry around, and for my "personal" keys I use a carabeener (I know I'm spelling that wrong...it's a cheap rock-climbing clip) to hold everything together.
I'm really excited about the car and I need to get rid of this clip (talk about some serious bulge...although, I clip it to the inside of my PURSE). Just figured if I was going to get rid of this clip, I might as well buy a decent keyring, rather than one of those plastic ones that say things like "To the Pessimist its half empty, to the Optimist its half full, to me its time for a beer run." But that's just me.
haha, Loopy, you're a girl so you can get away with having gigantic dangling set of keys, 'cuz you have a purse to house it. I'm a guy, and as i hope most guys would agree, a big bulge is only wanted in one place, and that's not the pockets. People look like dorks when they have their jean pockets stuffed with crap.
