|Hallvalla||I signed up for TL ($100) and got the membership back within a week with the codes. It's good for a Plan B.|

|pvf||My understanding is that participating in Affiliate Pricing credits the dealers 2% of MSRP. If you buy at AR pricing (-1%), they actually make more money than if you'd bought at invoice. Is this correct?|

|pvf||So, let's say I've negotiated invoice minus the holdback (around $1,1,00 in my case). If I THEN presented the TL document, would I be able to realize another 2% below my prior negotiated price without the dealer loosing any more skin (total of 3% below invoice)?|

And yes, they would have ordered for the same discount.

|fv9||I dont know about where you love, but it was easy to get internet quote 6% below invoice where I live. Much better than the TL discount.|

|kjwhite622||What are some prices of what you paid with the 2% under invoice. Is it worth it? The reason for the question is I am looking at trading my 10' in for a 13', just wondering what the difference is below sticker. I have not went to a dealer yet to see what invoice $ is yet.|

This is a great explanation of the program. I used it myself when I bought my 2013 and it could not have been easier. If you like to haggle you may be able to get a better price and save a few hundred bucks but if you are like me and don't want to bother with the whole haggle process this is the way to go.

The way it worked when I used it last year was sign up for the 3 year membership to qualify, TL sends you a welcome package that includes a letter with a code on it. After 30 days you qualify for the discount and you have to go sign up at a Chrysler website that enrolls you in the Chrysler affiliate program which is the current source of the discount. You actually apply for a special discount code there and bring the affiliate information with you to the dealer. I don't remember if it was required or not, but I did bring my TL with me as well. Apparently the discount used to be directly through TL but in 2011 or 2012 model year (from what I gathered from reading around here) it changed to Chrysler gave them access to the affiliate program directly. It's the same discount, just a different way of getting it.
Like Blastek says, some employers that already give you access to the program and that would save you the TL fee. I thought the website had a list of the affiliates but the only thing I could find quickly on Google was this one on some dealer's website Chrysler Jeep Dodge Affiliates Program

There is no such thing as a Tread Lightly discount.
Membership in Tread Lightly makes you eligible for the Chrysler Affiliate Rewards Program.
After joining, TL will send you a "company code" in the mail. With that code, you can go to Chrysler's Affiliate Rewards website (https://www.chrysleraffiliates.com/l...tPricingLayout) and get your control number.
With the control number and the membership letter from TL, most dealers will give you the Affiliate price of 1% under factory invoice.
Chrysler requires participating dealers (who get a 2% credit from Chrysler with the deal) to follow a lot of rules to make sure you know you are getting the right price with no hassles.
You are supposed to be a member of TL for 30 days before you take delivery of your vehicle.... but, whose counting?
Best way to buy IMHO!

Tread lightly just makes you part of the "Chrysler Affiliates" program. A lot of workplaces are already a member of this program, so you may be able to get the 1% below invoice deal through your work.
Although it says you must be a member for 30 days, a lot of dealers will honor the code from the tread lightly program regardless. There's usually a $75 doc fee when you use the affiliates discount.

|Duckquackers||ruxerr, you have to be a member for at least 30 days, tread lightly sends you a welcome letter after they get their 100 donation and you take that letter to the dealership of your choice. Works on all Jeeps from what I was told and I had no issues.|

|Beastmaster||So, you're looking to use the TL discount on buying a new Jeep? All I've used mine for was a rebate from Goodyear on a set of tires. I'll change the title and move this to the JK area so you can get better answers.|

How does Treadlightly discount work for discount on a new JK Wrangler?
Can someone please explain to me how the treadlightly discount works. I apologize if this has already been asked. If so, could you please direct me to the forum where it is explained. I am finally in a position to get the Jeep I have always wanted and was reading these forums and came across someone mentioning the discount.
btw, looking for a 12-13 new unlimited
