Re: Check if a dealer participates Affiliate Pricing?
After reading about the Tread Lightly program on this great site we joined, and I called our sales rep to ask her if the dealer accepted the program. She had to go ask the manager, but called back to say they did.
When we placed our order, we gave her the numbers and she gave us a written statement of the affiliate price.
When we took delivery, one of the family-owned dealership's members wrote up our lease, and he did ask me if I had joined Tread Lightly for the discount. I told him that honestly we did, but would keep up our membership as it is a good organization.
He mentioned that the dealership did not have to participate and I thanked him for doing so. He said they were interested because clearly if every customer came in with the discount they would have to rethink their participation.
I mentioned that I heard that Chrysler compensated them, and he said they did but not equal to selling an Overland at retail. Anyway he was very pleasant about it and thanked us for the sale. (BTW, this is our 4th GC from them)
Just thought I'd pass this along.
