The Jeep Wave Isn’t Just a “Hi” Sign, It’s Membership with Benefits

The "Jeep Wave" is more than just camaraderie; it's a program that keeps Jeeps in tip top shape as you wave to others at the top of the trail or the tip of ridge.

And now it signals even more confidence in ownership.

I still remember my first “Wave” from another Jeep, it was a pretty exciting experience. The “Jeep Wave” has been a known symbol for Jeep owners, a signal that goes back to early military days when drivers would wave to one another signaling themselves as an ally. Once you own a Wrangler, you learn the wave quickly. Now, when I’m on the road and get a wave, I know I am part of a great community.

It’s just one of the benefits to owning a Jeep, and from there it goes on: camaraderie and friendships developed at events, great customer service at the dealerships, confidence in a car that you know can get you into and out of the mud with ease.

It is in this spirit that Jeep has created the Jeep Wave Membership which is a Jeep loyalty program for most of the Jeep brand models. The Jeep Wave Membership benefits are unlike any they have offered before and as a Jeep owner, I am looking forward to my next Jeep and utilizing the Jeep Wave Membership.

I Ordered A New Jeep Wrangler – And I Can’t Wait for Official Wave Membership!

It was pretty exciting to get an email from Jeep explaining the Jeep Wave membership benefits. I ordered a new 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4-door, which was already exciting, but when I received the email with my vin number and benefits outlined, it was even more exciting. I can’t wait for my new Jeep to arrive, especially now that I know I will be well taken care of through the Jeep Wave membership benefits. The email was even signed “The Jeep Wave Team.”

Confidence With Vehicle Protection

If you need a rental the Jeep Wave membership gives you no-charge same-day vehicle rental, not to exceed $35, and it is only for same day mechanical repair or maintenance service (heads-up, it does not include bodywork). I personally had an amazing experience with this part of the program. I had 2 tires go down on my Jeep and the dealership put me in a fun Gladiator loaner while they took great care of my Grand Cherokee and had me back in her by morning.

Dedicated 24/7 Owner Support

If you have any questions about your Jeep Brand vehicle, or if you need to service, just call 844-JEEP-WAVE, 24/7. You can also get in touch through email or by using the Live Chat option on your account page at any time. It’s comforting knowing someone will be on the other end of the phone should I need help.

VIP Treatment

The Jeep Wave membership really makes you feel like a VIP with preferred treatment at Jeep brand events across the country and access to exclusive events.

Off-Road Adventures

As a 4×4 Jeep owner I have had quite a few off-road adventures, it’s actually one of the main reasons I bought my Jeep Wrangler. Knowing there are great benefits in the Jeep Wave Program for off-road adventurers like me is definitely a great plus to being a Jeep owner.
