Thanks for the info. I might do that and also check out CarMax since they give you a quote to buy your vehicle whether or not you purchase from them or not.

I just did mine and it said it expired in about 11 months. You have to take the control # and the treadlightly membership welcome letter to the dealer. I read somewhere you have to be a member for 30 days and that treadlightly only mails out membership letters on Fridays, so while I haven't used it, might be worth it to plan ahead.

How do you work with dealers on this? Do I mention the discount upfront or let them first order 2014 and then when it comes down to paying tell them about the discount. There is no invoice pricing yet and I don't want them to discurage working with me.

Personally I would work with Pat on this forum to get this done but expecting newborn in next couple of days so doing a road trip for Chicago is probably not going to be possible (although under normal circumstances we would probably do it).

Any advice would be helpful!
Roki,

Using the 1% below invoice is very easy. You should present it up front. In my case case, the dealer printed everything out for me and pricing matched exactly to the invoice pricing I looked up on the WK2 website at the time. They had no problem at all honoring the 1% and to be honest, completley saved all the back and forth in negociating. (I ordered a limited with options and did the whole deal in 20 minutes) The only disadvantage you have is not knowing the price, but I do not think they would take adavatage of this. The dealer has to print out the ionvoice off the Chrysler system.

The other side benefit for my 2012 was that it also reduced their paperwork fee from $150 to $75. The chrysler number I got through my company was good for a calendar year. I am not sure it there are ones out there with shorter time frames. As some have said, negociating a better price is possible, but I would suspect a lot moer difficult to do on a new model, and only for those vehicles already on the lot.

Good Luck

Re: 2014 ordering and 1% below invoice

There are a couple things that aren't completely correct here on this thread.

1. Affiliate Rewards is not a locked in price. It is the maximum a dealer can charge for the vehicle. In other words if you negotiate $500 under invoice and then spring the Affiliate on them they can still honor another 1%. It would actually benefit them as the dealer is reimbursed 2% when honoring the Affiliate program. Which brings me to my second point.

FFP- Friends and Family Price
AR-Affiliate Rewards/Supplier

Both are the same amount. In IL it has to be shown as a rebate. Reason is sales tax. In IL whenever there is money back from the manufacturer the state wants it's share of the sales tax on it. so we have to add that to the FFP/AR price, tax it and subtract from the bottom line.

Re: 2014 ordering and 1% below invoice

Thanks for all the info guys. 1% under invoice works for me. Worried that I will get screwed by doc fees, etc.

Want to order soon but need approval from "mission control" aka my wife.

The dealer cannot charge any of their own doc fees when you use Affiliate pricing. Using Affiliate does require a $75 fee that you pay to the dealer, but NO MORE. They CANNOT charge more. They could try if they are unknowledgeable or unethical, but then you could just sternly explain the Affiliate rules or complain to Chrysler LLC. I used Affiliate pricing (via Tread Lightly) when I bought my 2012 Overland.

Re: 2014 ordering and 1% below invoice

I get the 1% below invoice through my company - I am going to go about my negotiation very carefully, though.
