Are dealers offering Supplier Pricing for those who are qualified? The supplier website says yes, but my dealer says no. I work for a GM supplier.

I test drove one today and loved the car.

Thanks,

I asked my dealership if they were honoring Supplier Pricing. They not only said yes, they said they would sell the car to me for Dealer Invoice. That's lower than Supplier Pricing. If your dealer won't honor Supplier Pricing, I suggest you find another dealer. Presumably they will get your money for maintenance so get the best price for the car upfront. Shop around. Times are tuff, dealerships are dealing even on this new car.

My local dealer offered me Supplier pricing after talking to the sales manager for about 5 minutes.

It's about $4,500 under MSRP

CTS-V doesn't appear in the drop-down list for me. I can build one with the supplier prices listed, but I can't seem to get the code itself...

I have not tried that. However, if you click on the FAQ section, it will list the cars not available for supplier pricing. The only cars in the list that are excluded are the Corvette ZR1 and a Saturn Hybrid.

and..it says that list was updated 12/9/08.

Thank you for your interest in GM Supplier Discount. When you choose a vehicle type when obtaining an authorization number, this is for marketing purposes only. You can use your authorization number on any new and eligible GM Vehicle.

What's the difference between GMS and supplier pricing?

GMS is for employees and family only, and is below Dealer Invoice. Supplier is slightly above invoice. On a loaded car, GMS is $2,700 less than supplier.

Thanks Tony, GMS sounds like it should stand for GM Supplier.

Yeah, that acronym is a constant source of confusion around here. Supplier is technically abbreviated "GSU", but that term never gets used.

If a person doesn't qualify for the GMS or GM Employee pricing, can't a deal be struck to just buy the car at that price? If GMS or Gm Employee pricing is used, does the dealer get reimbursed some money from "The General"?

What's the best deal that you Guys have heard of just by buying the car, instead of either of these price plans? Does GM still use the GMID (GM in the driveway) pricing if I've got a code?

Just curious and Thanks! :cheers:

Yes, GM does give the dealer a better price on the car so the dealer still makes his profit on the car, GM is the one getting the price cut.

Just bug your salesman if you have one. Each sales person got 2 certificates they can give out to "relatives" or "friends" that give you employee pricing. That is by far the best deal going if you can get it.

The Dealer only gets reimbursed if they submit a valid authorization number to GM for the Supplier or Employee pricing. If they sell at that price to a non-qualifying person, they have two choices: Lose the money, or submit a number from a different buyer that does qualify. The latter can get the Dealer in big trouble if they're caught doing it.

A GM Employee or Supplier can give a code to friends or family. Find someone with a code and be really nice to them. :D

Thank You for the info! :cheers:

I never thought of that! If the salesperson wants to make the sale, then chances are, they might give one up! That's got to be a pretty good commission on a $60k car. Not too mention that ANY sale is going to help GM now! You'd have to sell 2-3 Cobalts to equal one CTS-V commission!

Yup. Then if you were lucky like a bunch of us, you also got the 2k rebate they rescinded last week.

So dealers can now accept employee pricing on the V? If anyone has a few lying around...I would love to have that deal. Maybe I can pick up a V this weekend. :)

Then if you were lucky like a bunch of us, you also got the 2k rebate they rescinded last week.My dealer did an incentive search; it produced a surprisingly long list that included a couple of $2,000 items, but they did not apply to me (at least one had to do with special financing). After I showed him a web site screenshot indicating the incentive and the date, he said he would inquire with the GM business office on Monday and we co-signed a form he'll be submitting.

So apparently the retraction has cascaded through the dealer information network...

Like Tony Said above,

If you don't natively qualify for GMS or GSU, some really quick searching on the forums will tell you who to contact as far as the GM employee's here that can propably share thier codes with the 'For Friends:highfive:' programs.

Thanks,
Matt

Is the "For Friends" program the employee pricing or the suppliers pricing?

Until Jan5th it is BOTH! After that who knows, but it is a solid bet employee for friends will be back at some point in 2009.

Remember, when folks mentioned that some dealers might, might, just might, maybe try to rip of the hair, scalp and finger naills of potential buyers of the 2009 CTS-V ???????????

Well, I asked and got a quote from a local caddy dealer, from management, not some new salesman, someone that could never make a mistake, but a BOSS.


I asked for only one cost option, Navigation...... black in color.... and automatic transmission


Well, this boss, shot back a quote to me ;;;:: Short and to the point

Auto,Nav.,Black $83435.0+T&L when aplicable


Anyone interested in the car let me know I will get you in contact, E-Mail and all....

no problwm

I may have mentioned to the salesman, that I wished him LUCK, and that shipping the car from floridia would save 25K or more.
