As much as I would like to see a Pat Fields in CO, not sure it's possible. Hope you prove otherwise.
Ha, yeah I remember reading that post too. I can get 1% under at any dealer with the tread lightly membership, but what I was planning to do is contact several dealers at the end of a month (and quarter if possible), and say hey... I've got 5 orders ready to be placed, give us your best offer.... when these guys are getting $750 extra per vehicle sold that month x 1000 vehicles, that's a big payday, and I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to get a dealer to do 2% under invoice, if not more. Or at least throw in some free maitenance, floor mats, etc, etc.

Just my observation from the # of Overlands and Summits I see, Jeep cashes in on the $450 a month lease market on the front range. Sure make it easier to pay MSRP when you are renting the car.

Today, I just got a new windshield (again) for my current vehicle and lost some of my car fever on the drive home.

+1. I had to fly to Texas to buy my last SUV and expect to buy a WK2 out of state when I am ready. Won't even start a discussion with the bandits here.

That's why the affiliate program is so nice... 1% under invoice without negotiating...1% under guaranteed.

Is it just this simple?
1) Go to treadlightly.org
2) become a $100 member
3) Wait for something to be mailed to you
4) go to any jeep dealer and get $1% below invoice?

seems legit
TreadLightly 1% under Invoice discount - Experiences?

Yes it's that simple. You will get an "affiliate rewards" (or something like that) number -- just take that to the dealer. There is also a list of a zillion businesses that if you work for, you can get the same discount. Its in the 2014 thread somewhere I believe.

Are you going to be ordering soon? If so, please email me your details. As I said, if we can get enough guys I'm sure we can get a few extras over the 1% below. jlantis@comcast.net

Guys,

I'm only saying this to help you all out, and I could be wrong since you all are looking for brand new refresh models... but I'd aim for a little lower than 1% under invoice.

Find the "Prices Paid" thread and you'll see that MANY people were getting a good deal under Invoice, more than 1%.

Again, I paid $33,819 on my $39,810 MSRP 2012 Altitude. That is 16% under MSRP, and according to the dealer, here were my prices (taken from email from dealership):

MSRP: $39,810
Invoice: $37,494
EP: $35,694

So if Invoice was $37,494 - 1% under invoice is only $37,119. I had $1000 Instant Jeep Rebate and then used the $500 mail-in brochure coupon, which would have brought it down to $35,619.

$35,619 (Invoice - 1% - $1500 rebates) - $33,819 (what I actually paid) = $1800 difference.

$1800 / $35619 = about 5%


Just trying to help you all out.

If you buy towards the end of a model year you can always get them cheaper. When you're ordering something that hasn't even hit the dealer's floor, you pay more.

Some like to save and some like to be first on the block. You set your price accordingly, and it's all good.

As Bill said, it depends when you are purchasing... If I wanted to get a 2013 right now, I'm sure I could get a similar deal to you. However, since we are ordering the 2014 1-2% is a helluva deal. Most "normal" customers are going to pay well over invoice.

Re: People ordering new Jeeps in Colorado -- Please Reply

First post. Been lurking on these threads for months. (will donate just to say thanks for all the great info)

I'm in Denver, naturally, and will be ordering either a Limited/Overland as soon as invoice prices are finalized. I also like Go Jeep West. The internet sales guy I've been working with out there has been great. Before I decided to wait, he made me a killer deal on a 2013 and that was back in early October.

I was at one point looking to trade in my JK for a new JKU, so I've been to a few dealerships around the area and Go Jeep West was the only one I went back to.

Dang I feel robbed at GO Broadway with my Altitude with the deal you got. I went through Navy Federal Auto buying program.

I'm in CO and leaning towards a WK2 but am going to hold out for the diesel so our timing probably doesn't match up.
