I was able to recieve the supplied discount and I believe it puts you at 1% over invoice. When you ask for it they are required to show you the invoice price. This can also be combined with the customer cash back offer.
When I was shopping, the invoice price was about the same (if not exactly) as edmunds.com. And I agree, I think my supplier pricing put me just about 1% above invoice. It varies a bit by how many options you get, since options seem to have a different discount rate than the base price.
I'll dig this one up since it is the only thread with "supplier" in the title when I searched, and what I'm posting is relevant to the topic.
Does Saturn honor GM Supplier prices? I have a GM Employee that can give me a certificate & I was curious if anyone had used this at a Saturn dealer. The prices looked good when I went through the supplier link (no login needed), my $32,025 MSRP XE came down to $28,997.88 after supplier discount and the $500 consumer cash (the supplier link allowed that in there, so I'm figuring it is legit).
OK, I guess I was on another GM link. I used the one above & the $32,025 unit was $30,860.21 with the discount, or $30,360.21 with the consumer cash. The pot needs to be a little sweeter than that for me, so I'll see how negotiation works, and I want to see if any better offers/incentives are upcoming due to all the bad GM financial news.
I noted while searching today that the cash back is now up to $1250 (from $500) on 2008 Acadia and Outlook models. I went through the GM Supplier link above, and with this discount, the pricing on the vehicles I've looked at is within about $500 of the employee pricing I got from the GM Family website (I went to the wrong place initially for GM Supplier pricing, https://www.gmfamilyfirst.com/ip-gmemployee/ ). Example:
2008 Outlook XE
GM supplier: $29,014.30
Less cash: $1,250
The employee pricing was $28,132.58 last week with $500 cash back. Of course, now the employee pricing is even lower, it is $27,832.58.
UPDATE- Found this on a dealer website today:
Current owners of a 1999 or newer non-GM vehicle, trade it in and get $1750 Total Purchase Cash on OUTLOOK. 3. Includes all offers. Not available on lease or SmartBuy transaction or with some other offers. Trade-in cannot be a lease or SmartBuy vehicle. See retailer for details. Take delivery by 7/31/08.
If this is applicable, it lowers my price to $28,164.30.
