Tread Lightly Question

Hey guys, I've got some Tread Light Affiliate Rewards questions. I've got a 2014 Ram on order that will be here in about 2-3 weeks. I know it's not a Jeep but you guys seem to order a lot more vehicles than the guys on the Ram forums.

1. I completely forgot about the TL program being available and just joined Friday. What are the chances that the dealer accepts my code before the 30 day requirement?

2. I got a deal of invoice plus $200, minus rebates when I ordered the truck. How many hoops will I need to jump through to get them to take the TL 1% deal? I'm happy with 1% below invoice minus rebates since that still puts me at about $9200 below MSRP. I've got a total of $5000 in rebates right now.

Re: Tread Lightly Question

Zero chance. You will get your Affiliate Control Number by joining in a week. They mail the member packets (has your letter with Control Number) on Fridays so you probably missed that cutoff so yours will go out this Friday and you will receive it the following week. However, just because you have the control number does not mean the dealer can use it. Mr. Computer will let them use it on day 30 of active membership, not before.

With that said, I think you can work something out, maybe. I don't know your market dynamics, etc... but Chrysler employee pricing is 5% below invoice so the reality is there are "ways" for the dealer to discount within that range using a combination of true dealer discounting, Tread Lightly, etc... If they say they'll use the Tread Lightly before the 30 days they are just relabeling a dealer discount which is fine for you, same diff. The rebates are NET of below invoice discounting so don't let them use those as "below invoice" discounts.

It just depends on their motivation to do the deal now or make you wait til the TL Control Number is active in system for 30 days because they would be giving up that profit to give you the same 1% now versus making you wait.

Crap. It was worth a shot I guess.

Re: Tread Lightly Question

You can always say you'll complete the deal on x date (when your affiliate code is officially active) as a negotiation point to get the 1% off invoice plus available incentives/rebates off...as well as the $75 processing fee and no more...

Many dealers will work with you on that because they get 2% for honoring the code.

Re: Tread Lightly Question

The $75 processing fee goes to the dealer and applies to anyone using a Chrysler affiliate code for a purchase. For folks paying for TL membership, that fee is additional. There are other organizations that offer the affiliate membership for less than TL and many of us work for large employers who also have the Chrysler affiliate benefit available for no cost. But TL seems to be a good organization so at least the membership fee isn't totally wasted...

Re: Tread Lightly Question

did the same as you. Joined TL. Local Jeep General Sales Manager was willing to order my Jeep prior to me getting the control number. He stated that since I knew about the program the control number was on its way.
All I need is have it available by the time car arrives in 6-8 weeks.

Ah, got confused as the Houston group buy dealer didn't charge me any processing fee.
