View the terms and conditions for receiving text alerts from MBUSA, plus information on how to activate or stop such alerts.

Text Alerts

MBUSA provides certain services through recurring SMS alerts through MBUSA News & Announcements, MBUSA Vehicle Alerts, and MBUSA Polls and Surveys (collectively “Text Alert Programs”). By entering your mobile phone number(s) and successfully activating any of the Text Alert Programs, (i) you acknowledge and represent that you are the authorized user of the mobile phone(s) that you subscribe to the text alert service or have been granted permission by the authorized user of the mobile phone(s) to enroll such mobile phone(s) in the service; (ii) you grant MBUSA express permission to send text messages to the registered mobile phone(s) through your wireless phone carrier unless and until such permission is revoked in accordance with these terms and conditions; and (iii) by granting such permission to MBUSA you are hereby requesting to receive such messages in spite of the fact that your number may otherwise be on the federal, or a state's, do not call list and you agree, to the maximum extent permitted by law, that such text messages shall not be in violation of such do not call list(s).

Activate Text Alerts:

To activate MBUSA News & Announcement Text Alerts, text “MBUSA” to 81665. Reply “Confirm” to opt-in to SMS messaging. 5 msgs./month. Msg&data rates may apply

You will be asked to verify your mobile phone number before the service will start. This requires responding to a text alert sent to your mobile phone confirming your enrollment in the applicable Text Alert Program.  By signing up for any of the Text Alert Programs, you agree to these Text Alert Terms and Conditions. There is no charge from MBUSA for Text Alert Programs, but YOUR SERVICE PROVIDER’S MESSAGE AND DATA RATES MAY APPLY.  You are solely responsible for all message and data charges that you incur. Please contact your mobile service provider about such charges. Texts may be sent using an automatic telephone dialing system. You acknowledge and understand that SMS messages are sent without encryption, which presents some security risk.

Stop Text Alerts: You may opt out of MBUSA’s Text Alert Programs at any time. To stop receiving text alerts, text “STOP” to the number from which you are receiving text alerts. Your text message should contain only the word “STOP” without any additional words, spaces, or characters either before or after the word “STOP.”  MBUSA will reasonably endeavor to comply with other text communications in which you indicate a clear and unmistakable intent to revoke your prior permission; however, you (a) understand that these messages go to a short code number that is entirely automated, is not monitored by a human, and the ability of our short code box to interpret your intent is severely restricted and, therefore, (b) you hereby release MBUSA from any liability for your efforts to revoke your permission via a text message that does not strictly comply with the terms stated above. After you submit a request to unsubscribe, you will receive one final text alert from MBUSA confirming that you will no longer receive text alerts from the applicable Text Alert Program. No additional text alerts will be sent unless you re-activate your enrollment to the Text Alert Program. You agree that your prior express consent to receive text alerts shall continue indefinitely unless and until you comply with one of the methods described above for cancelling your prior express consent. Other methods or means attempted to revoke your prior express consent (e.g. a letter sent to an MBUSA address, an email sent to an MBUSA email address, a voicemail message left with an MBUSA employee, etc.) shall be ineffective.
