Question about Employee Discounts and Incentives

ceighmeyceighmey Posts: 1
I am in the process of gathering info on leasing a Grand Caravan SXT and have a question about negotiating a price.

I am elligable for the Chrysler Employee Purchase Plan and there are also sevral incentives going on when leasing right now, namely $4000 cash back and free DVD upgrade ($1100 savings).

Does the dealer get reimbursed from Chrysler/Dodge for the incentives being offered? If that's the case, does that give me room to negotiate a lower price even after my Employee Plan Discount?

For example, if the MSRP is $32,500 doesn't that include about a %10 sales markup? And then they get the incentive money ($5100) back from the manufacturer, for a total of approx $8000 above invoice?

if they knock about $2900 for my employee plan, that's still $5100 above their cost, so can I negotiate a bit further?

I may be way off mark with my thinking, but just want to confirm.

Thank you!

    I've bought/leased 7 vehicles in the last 8 years using an employee purchase programs including two T&C Tourings.

    Most rebates are directly to the consumer. The sales price is usually the employee plan price for the vehicle. Add tax, title, and plate fees, then subtract any rebates. So, take about 10% off for the employee price for that van. Add in your state's sales tax and licensing fees, then take off that $4k rebate. I don't know how CG is handling the free DVD this month. It probably is an extra $1100 rebate taken after you pay sales tax, but could be discounted into the sales price.

    That said, in Metro Detroit you should be able to get a sales price $1-2k under the employee price before any rebates. I got $2k extra off in the form of dealer cash before sales tax on both my 2005 & 2007 minivans. You should ask for a sales price at least $1k under Chrysler employee pricing.

    My lease is up on my Chrylser vehicle and it's time to get a new one. The last time I got a vehicle my sales person sold me a chrylser employee number because the person who was going to give me one wasn't able to. I really need a number, but can't afford to pay $100 dollars for it like last time. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

    Hi,
    just heard a story about a friend, of a friend, of a friend... who bought a Town & Country ( dont know what model exact ). Price was $27000 and he paid $17000.
    He got whole bunch of discounts including Chrysler Employee Discount. Is this possible to beat the price down for 10Ks?
    How can I get employee discount number? Is there any way to buy it from somebody???
    Thanks, Derrick

    Just curious if you ever ended up getting an EC number? Im willing to pay for one if you know someone who you got it from last time or anyone else to contact?

    Please let me know. I'm in a huge bind, the person that was giving me one, ended not being able to.

    When Cerberus completes its majority purchase of Chrysler, Daimler will still own 20% of the new Chrysler. Will Chrysler employees, retirees and their family members still be allowerd to buy/lease Mercedes-Benzes on the Chrysler Employee Purchase Plan?
  • Hello,
    How can I get an employee discount number? I hear employees have 2 they can give out each year. Do you know of anyone?
    You can email me at brandypatrick222@hotmail.com

    Hi, I just leased a grand caravan yesterday under the employee discount program. My Wife's Uncle works for Chrysler. The salesman gave me the discount without any control number. I signed the lease, and I have had the van for over 24 hours now. I got a hold of the uncle, and he gave me the control number. Come to find out, nieces are not eligible for the discount. The sales man said I need to get a number now, and I should get a hold of someone who works for Chrysler to get one.

    my question is that since I already signed the lease for this amount, isn't it all said and done now. Or do I still need to get a number to keep my van at this price. I would think that if it was submitted without the control number, and I signed the lease I should be in the clear now, and not have to pay the extra 1600 price difference. Any advice I can get would be great. Thank you.
    Matt.

    Hi, I am a mom of 2 kids with another on the way. We were doing fine with the used car we had bought, until we found out our completed family of 4, is soon to be a family of 5. My husband and I are struggling and to make matters worse we will have to get a new car. Anythings possible, but it would be so awsome if we could somehow obtain a chrysler employee discount. I dont know if this is a possibility :confuse: or how those discounts work. but we would be able to pay for it, as long as it didnt cost too much. Does anyone know of a way to get one, or if you can even use an employee dicount without being an employee. If anyone could help us out with this in any way I can assure your the effort will be unbelievably appreciated. Thank you so much and God Bless!

    Thank you from mom of 4 about to be 5!
  • I am hoping a Chrylser employee can help me. I want to surprise my wife with a new car. Se really loves the Sebring convertible, the only problem is that it is a bit more than I can afford even at the discount the dealer gave me. I would be so grateful if some generous chrysler employee could give me an EC code. It is our 20th anniversary and a new car for her would be something we could talk about for sometime. My thanks in advance for a quick response. Please email me at sfo22@comcast.net.

    Hi everyone,

    I just got back with my two girls from looking and pricing out a 2009 Dodge Caliber. I love it, it fits me and my girls perfect. I was hoping that a kind soul could pass on to me a Chrysler family and friends discount code as the sales guys says that if I come up with that number or code it will cover the $2000 that I am short on making a deal. My girls and I would be ever so greatful if someone could help.
    Thanks in advance

  • Hi Everyone,

    I was wondering if somebody could assist me. I am looking to purchase a Dodge vehicle. I currently have a 2007 Chrysler Aspen and although I love my SUV, I am not able to keep up with the payments do to loss of income and need to down size. With three children and one income, myself, an employee discount number would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

    "As an employee familiar with employee purchase programs I know that GM, Ford, and Chrysler routinely audit their employee purchase programs to find rule breakers. GM’s tactics seem extreme but I’m sure it is meant to scare the hell out of future employees willing to roll the dice. You would think that selling a car is better than letting it sit but they have to draw the line somewhere."

  • Hello, I have had my 98 jeep for the past 12 years, I put over 250,000 miles on it! and at the worst time possible the frame decided to snap while going down the road which also caused my front axle, tire tire rod and control arms to bust as well... I don't have enough cash to get a new one without some help... if there is someone out there that can help me out with an employee discount, I will also throw in a gift to show how much you are appreciated! please contact me @ nmerrima@kent.edu...
