I used these prices as negotiating power for my more local dealer. When I contacted heritage their price included ALL rebates so if u didn't qualify for one ot wouldn't be your price

Re: For those who got $6500+ off MSRP

I tried a similar approach as jdsmitty10 and sent the link to the other dealers site, so they knew where I got my offering price. It was $6500 off including the $1K rebate and $500 off for military. I figured it would be a good starting point if nothing else. I found a dealer that had the '12 White V6 Limited with the options I was looking for and after exchanging a few emails, I emailed my offer; they didn't reply back. A few days later, the specific vehicle I wanted was sold to someone else and I haven't heard from the dealer since. I will try again as soon as I see the specific options I am looking for, but so far no joy for me.

I was targeting 2% off invoice (PLUS incentives) while I was shopping (since I knew I could sign up for Tread Lightly and be guaranteed at least 1% off). This equated to $4,300 off MSRP. There was only $1K rebate for me when I bought last month - I would have needed to be military or have another brand's lease or some of that bonus cash to have gotten anything lower.

I emailed AND personally visited a lot of dealers. Only one of them could even touch the 2% off price. Funny how that's the dealer I built the best relationship with - the sales guy was actually really nice. Luckily it was also the dealer willing to trade his stock for the exact Jeep I wanted, which saved me a ton of time, hassle, and money (although I did spend a lot of time visiting dealers - part of the process for me at least to make sure the Jeep really was what I wanted).

In the end, it's all about being happy with your choices, regardless of how they compare to others.

Good advice. Dealers do have volume incentives so this could work out in your favor in a big way.

Yes, I know, I called them too. I should have mentioned it and actually did but edited my post and accidentally removed that part.

What rebates are they assuming? 1000 cash + 500 military + ???

It will be really funny if they also assume Loyalty Cash and Conquest Cash together ...

Re: For those who got $6500+ off MSRP

When I called Heritage back in October, they said that there was a Maryland rebate for $1,000 that I would qualify for (and I live in Nebraska). Not sure if they might have that available now, maybe. You'd have to live close enough to get it to take advantage of their great price though since it costs $950 to ship it hundreds of miles away. Employee pricing is pretty great in itself and add incentives on top of that.

At my time of purchase heritage had the 1k rebate, military(I don't qualify), the other brand lease one(I don't qualify) so when all said and done I woulda paid $1500 more than their website showed.. I ended up negotiating a better price somewhere else anyway.. Told heritage my deal and they offered $500 off that but I didn't want to drive 1.5 hrs so I stuck with my local dealer..Plus heritage wanted to add the big destination charge which I negotiated off on my deal..

I got a total of $9500 off my overland. I started by getting price quotes online for the Laredo, which were about $4500 off including rebates. Then I discovered that the two Rick Hendrick dealers in town were franchises owned by two different people and the both wanted me to NOT get my wk from the other store. I visited and emailed them for two weeks, probably a total of ten visits and fifty emails.

I liked both salesmen a lot, but really wanted to do business with the one I eventually bought from. He was so laid back and acted like he really wanted me to get a good deal. We were looking for a Laredo or Laredo X and they had agreed to about $5000 off, but part of that was because we agreed to get one with the recalled v6 engines as they included an additional $1000 rebate. I think the discount was $2500 and the total rebate $2500. Twice they ordered one for us and twice it never arrived because they were trading with other dealers and the other dealer sold the car out under them.

To be honest the great deal came down to end of December (month) push to sell cars, the end of year rush to sell cars, and my wife. We were sitting with their GM picking out a car to order (for the third time) and she talked him down on the unit sitting on the showroom floor. We had to promise to "go away"!

We then got 2% financing for four years, even though at the time they only had 3.5% they were offering. We just had to check competing rates on my phone and they matched them.

The finance guy told us we were $5000 under cost, and about $3500 under cost after holdbacks. He actually called the GM to be sure the paperwork was correct.

He refused to give us the car detail package for free!

Re: For those who got $6500+ off MSRP

The key is also "when to buy". I bought my '11 Laredo X in Dec -- with $5500 off. They also gave me a decent trade-in value, and good % (considering my loan).

$9500 off is an incredible deal! BTW, what is the mileage on the car when you bought it? This is a super deal even for a demo car ...
