The FordPass Rewards program launched in 2019, and it allows owners to accumulate points, sort of like airline frequent-flyer miles. These points act as a form of currency that can be used to pay for services, accessories and parts, and even a new car. Anyone who bought a new car after April 2, 2019 automatically received 42,000 points in their FordPass Rewards account –– provided you download the FordPass smartphone app and connect it to a qualifying new vehicle. At the time of launch in 2019, the 42,000 points were valued at about $210 –– which is enough for three oil and air filter changes, according to Ford.
