Also, how and when did you get the $500 offer mailed to you? Did you have to express interest as a returning purchaser to get on a mailing list?

BTW - sorry to hi-jack this thread... please PM me if you get a chance plynn7.

Re: Tread Lightly Questions

any news yet if Chrysler is going to keep the treadlightly benefit in 2011? I just signed up but they won't mail my membership letter until Jan 7, 2011. I am going to try to order my GC Overland (with 730N - RHR) tomorrow and didn't know if I would be able to do it at 1% off the invoice or not without the official letter.

You wont need it until the Jeep comes in and you actually purchase it. Just make sure you clarify with the dealership you are ordering from that they honor affialiate pricing.

There seems to be some variance in how individual dealers are handling this. Best to lead with this information when you speak with your dealer. My guy was willing to take my order and commit to the out-the-door pricing in writing. As it happens, I had my number at the time of order but earlier he had told me that he would honor that pricing before I got the number. Another member said he was never asked for a control number.

Shoot a friendly note to Tracey at TL.org; she handles membership services. Maybe she will send you your membership letter electronically if you tell her you need it to do a transaction. I mean, they have a big announcement on their homepage bragging how the affiliate program has caused an influx of new members. They should be willing to share the love.

Re: Tread Lightly Questions

Thanks for the feedback - here's what is written on their website so it looks like i'll have to wait until next year:

Thank you for supporting Tread Lightly! Please be advised that our office will be closed Dec. 22-Jan. 3rd. All memberships purchased between these dates will be processed and mailed out Jan. 7, 2011. Please do not call or email for the Goodyear redemption code or Chrysler control number, these will be provided in your membership letter mailing out Jan. 7th. Thank you for your cooperation and patience.

Re: Tread Lightly Questions

Make sure your dealer will commit to Affiliate pricing BEFORE you order. My dealer will honor affiliate pricing but only for cars on the lot. They specifically excluded any discounted pricing for ordered vehicles (affiliate pricing, employee pricing, etc.). This makes no sense to me since there is less overhead on a vehicle that is paid for and out the door the day it arrives. But maybe their justification is they don't HAVE to discount an ordered vehicle - it is essentially already sold when it is ordered.

Anyway, make sure you dealer will honor affiliate pricing upon delivery and tell him you will have the code when you pick up the car. The code is only good for 45 days or so, so you will need to apply for it right before delivery.

My understanding (and I could be wrong) is that if you have a dealer that will not honor the affiliate pricing, then you should call Chrysler and notify them as they are required to honor it. More then likely they will tell you to just go to another dealer that will honor it but still...

Re: Tread Lightly Questions

Hey Mookie10 does your Jeep have a problem with most of one cylinder? Just curious how you arrived at a 5.2 liter Jeep.

I would do that even without ChryCo's urging (work with another dealer). If a dealer only takes my business begrudgingly then I would never want to do business with them.

yep fully agreed. IMO there is no reason to NOT use the TL discount on any Jeep purchase. Definately worth the $25 fee if you dont have access to affialiate pricing through other means.
