how much off sticker?

Hello everyone, new to the forum. My son is coming home from the airforce for 2 weeks and he wants to look at a wrangler unlimited. I am trying to do some of the leg work for him but I know nothing about a jeep. Any help on how much you got off of sticker would be appreciated. If you know of a dealer that deals let me know that as well. Thanks hope it is alright to ask.

If he is looking new, join Tread Lightly. It gets you an automatic 1% under dealer invoice and some dealers will do more.

Since he is in the service he is eligible to be a USAA member. I used them and got about $1000 under invoice. It's a no haggle price.

Minimum is 1% under INVOICE. Quite a few are getting 2% under invoice. then subtract applicable rebates and make sure that he gets all the MILITARY DISCOUNTS.

Dealer recommendation probably depends on where you live.

Please give him my thanks for his service!

It's actually 1% PLUS the $1000 for USAA. Then of course anything else you can pull like military discounts. I just used the USAA one myself last month and it worked out to about $1250 off invoice with the under invoice + $1000 off.

EDIT: I just checked the USAA car buying site. It looks like the $1000 thing might be over.

EDIT2: Just looked all through it and for Jeep it's only applying to Compass and Patriot now.

USAA is a must! There is even a USAA iPhone app that lets you build the jeep precisely as you would like it and it then gives you a no haggle price. Just did this myself 3-4 weeks ago. It really makes the whole process easier.

My Rubicon stickered at $38,065, I am paying $36,049 (plus tax and tags, $180 dealer doc prep fee) That's quite a bit better than 1%

You are talking MSRP. You are getting about 5% off MSRP. The tread lightly discount is 1% below invoice. You will need to find out what the invoice price for your configuration is, and then take 1% off and see where you end up. My guess is you will be close to 7% -8% below MSRP.

I sold rides for a few years and you should always be able to buy an in stock vehicle for a few hunderd under invoice - any incentives. If they try to keep it from happening just ask to speak to a manager ask to see the invoice and offer the above, they will take it they still make profit and everyone is happy no need to be in any club or USAA just go in with that approach and 9 out of 10 dealers will gladly make the easy deal. the rare one that says no will call you at the end of month begging you to come in and buy it on those terms.

Edmunds.com true market value will get you the invoice price (or very close to it). I used that and all the advice on 1% below invoice, etc to get me $1500 below invoice on my 2012 JKU.

Was anyone able to apply the 1% Tread Lightly deal if they ordered their vehicle rather than buying it off the lot?

Screw this 1% stuff!!

Find 2-3 local dealers,, visit all three,, then let them have a feeding frenzy over ur business!! Do it last day of the month,,,maybe even the quarter also!

I got $5k off sticker and they paid off $4.4k I had left in my leased Jeep. On top of 2.49% for 72,, 0 down and no early payoff penality.

This was 10 days ago ,, and Im still having the two other dealers calling me asking if I got a Jeep Yet!!

Do your home work. . Congrats to your son too!! Get the military discount also.

Yes I did. But they don't like to do it and will offer some resistance. They would rather sell the Ines sitting on their lot first.

Good to know, jeep hasn't been delivered from Chrysler yet, I'll have to go in and beat them up a bit. Thanks for the info!

Chris,

I got the TL discount on my sold factory order no questions asked and negotiated down from there.

Also, the reason the dealer would rather sell something that is on his lot is because he is getting closer and closer to paying floorplan (commonly referred to as "the juice") on it, if he isn't already. The juice can be several hundred dollars a month. In order to move older inventory, manufacturer's sometimes give the dealers hundreds of dollars in spiffs on overage units if they sell them within a certain timeframe.
