Buy a car and Hyundai could pay off some of your student loan debt

A trial program that launched Tuesday in California and Arizona may provide new-car buyers saddled with student debt with up to $900 toward their education loans if the take delivery of a new Hyundai by September 30.

Hyundai dubs the program Student Assurance, and for now it’s only available at certain dealerships in California and the Phoenix area. To qualify for the program, shoppers can visit a website run by Hyundai and loan benefits provider Gradifi to receive a reward code. After purchasing or leasing a new Hyundai, the automaker instructs them to enter the code and the car’s vehicle identification number to receive up to $900 applied to their student loans.

Hyundai did not say what it will take to qualify for the full $900.
