Re: Dealership VIP program - 1% below invoice

^^^^ Maybe even this week. It is on a railcar headed to Koons Jeep in DC. I am doing the DC buyers group and have gotten some confusion if an affiliate control number would reduce the price further.....I've got on just in case!

Dan JGC, just remembered who you were. I know you said no thanks but boy your new Summit Hemi sure would sound sweet with one of these.

However you get the extra 1% off via the control number or not use it fully and enjoy the benefit of having access to it.

Re: Dealership VIP program - 1% below invoice

Well, I just signed up for Tread Lightly, so that's taken care of. By the time my Jeep comes in, I will have a valid control number.

It just took me by surprise when Mark said that, because I've read a lot of stuff here about the Texas group buy but I don't recall reading that T.L. was part of the way they got the price that low.

I hear ya, surprised me too. He told me he assumes all forum members are TL members.

Here's the math on my '14 Summit 4x4 Hemi thru him:

$54,890 (MSRP excl $995 dest)
- 2,519 (Friends/fam disc to get to FFP of 52,371 as starting point)
- 518 (1% TL disc on 51,829 Invoice)
- 2,879 (Mystery/Dealer disc)
----------
$48,974 (5.5% below 51,829 invoice)
+ 995 (destination)
----------
$49,969
- 1,000 (Conquest rebate for simply having an Infiniti on lease)
----------
$48,969 Total cost before other deal costs
+ 125 (Dealer doc fee...I consider this a junk fee and part of price)
+ 108 (TX dealer inventory tax...I consider this a junk fee and part of price)
+ 600 (Semi transport from TX to my front door in OH)
----------
$49,802 (Actual price paid excl tax, title/license)

So I paid (in my mind) 5.7% below Invoice all in or 10.9% off MSRP all in. Best deal by far for my situation. I tried a local dealer on lot unit but it had a fatal hood paint flaw and some body plastic gouges so I rejected it and once I was in an order situation this deal saved me $1,600 net using above math over my best Cleveland dealer option. I had intended to make the pickup a mini vacation with my 18 yr old son since he is going to UofT Austin but I mangled my leg in a motocross crash so I had to ship it.

I LOVE my summit

Mark gives 4.5% below invoice, then the tread lightly program gives an additional 1% below invoice. You spend a hundred dollars to save 500 dollars. In addition, you get membership to a great program. Tread lightly motto is what the jeep jamborees follow - leave no trace behind.

Looking at pulling the trigger on ordering a 2014 before the month is out, but the best price I've come across in WI is invoice - so far. What stealership did you gets yours from if you don't mind me asking?

I joined Tread lightly (at treadlightly.org) for a $75 membership for 3 years. Then went to the Chrysler affiliates page and login and received my Chrysler control # which was good for the 1% below invoice. It saved me about $3,500 without any negotiating at all.

when i bought my '13 Trailhawk i used the Affiliate program through my work. I was eligible for all the rebates as well. I received 1% under invoice and $3,500 in rebates. basically a $47k MSRP rig for $43k OTD.

Re: Dealership VIP program - 1% below invoice

Have you heard anything about the chrysler charging the dealers $75.00 fee (and they charge the customer) for participating in the tread lightly program

That's accurate. This program-fee is charged to the customer but in return, the dealer mustn't charge you any additional "dealer fees" besides tax, registration and title/doc.-fee under the program.

There is a $75 administration fee for anyone using the Chrysler Affiliate program. It has nothing to do with "Tread Lightly" specifically...they are just an organization that has the Chrysler Affiliate program as a benefit. I get the same benefit through my employer and also had to pay the program fee.
