Subaru offers a Badge of Ownership, which is a personalized emblem for car owners.
You can obtain a badge by visiting badgeofownership.com, inputting your VIN, model, and make, and customizing it with a Loyalty Number and up to five Lifestyle Icons.
The Badge of Ownership allows Subaru owners to showcase their unique interests and experiences, which fosters a sense of community among enthusiasts.
Nowadays, car companies will come up with incentives to lure in new customers and keep their regular ones returning. Since cars are one of the biggest purchases most consumers make repeatedly, developing ways to keep customers coming back makes sense. As it turns out, Subaru came up with the cutest marketing ploy ever with their Badge of Ownership.
Everyone wants a Badge of something, whether it be a Badge of Honor, a Boy or Girl Scout Badge, or in the case of Subaru, a Badge of Ownership. Badges give people a sense of achievement. By making a badge available to their car owners, Subaru is acknowledging what an achievement it is to own a car. TikToker Danielle Davila (@usmcbourbonwife) showed us her Subaru badge on TikTok, and now we want one too! Here’s the best way to get it.
Danielle Davila showed her TikTok followers how she got her Subaru Badge of Ownership.
In a 50-second video, Danielle shared how her Subaru Forester is her “car soulmate.” Danielle believes that she’ll be a “Subaru driver for life.” Then she shows off her Subaru Badge of Ownership, which she can put on the back of her car, and it’s honestly adorable.
The badge starts with a circle of if it’s the person's first, second, third, etc. Subaru. So, Danielle shows us that it’s her first Subaru. But then there are bits that one can add to the main badge that shows off a little about the owner and their family. Danielle explains, “We are a military family,” as she adds a little military badge, and she puts a “road trip” badge next to it, likely to signify that the Subaru has taken a road trip.
“And then I got the family one,” she says as she adds a heart with the word “family” inside of it. “And because I’m a photographer too, I put a little camera.” Not only is it cute, Danielle tells us, but it’s also free! Any Subaru owner can get their own personalized Badge of Ownership.
