Pricing Discounts?

So when is GM actually going to officially announce what discounts they are going to except? I know they said yes to suppliers, but what about employee discount?

I highly doubt we will see discounts during the first year, maybe for the V6, but very unlikely for the V8.

I also was not understanding they have said yes to supplier discounts. I have seen employee discounted prices listed, but not on an official GM web site. I personally am hoping they will allow at least $1000 of the GM card reward points to be used on the price. They cap the Vette at $1000 as well for GM reward points so I think it is reasonble they will do the same for the Camaro.

There has been no official word from GM that suppliers will be honored. Some dealerships have said that if gm honors it they will do the same but GM has not said yes to suppliers discount yet

My understanding is that the ZR1 is the only Chevy that is excluded from supplier pricing. If all the other Vettes offer it, I would have to think the Camaro would to.

I may be wrong, but I thought I remembered Scott saying not to worry about it. Not a confirmation, but not a denial either.

It's not some rare machine that turns into a robot.

The ONLY car excluded from any discount is a ZR1

The malibu had discounts from day one.

DANGIT! Why didn't I select that option?


Back on topic, I think they'll accept discounts from day one, but I'm not an official.

IMO, not a snowball's chance in hell. Why would they? To give away money? They have over 10k ordered with no discounts. Don't expect any discounts until all the 1st allocation is gone IMO. Only way you get a discount is if you, your family, or the guy doing your sister, owns a Chevy dealership.

Well, the 10K ordered so far aren't from day 1 are they? We'll just see when the car comes out.

Doesn't matter to me anyway. I'm going to be waiting a while to get regardless.

GM gets the same amount of dollars per car, no matter if a discount is offered or not.

Agreed- and as such the dealer "loses" out by accepting GMU/GMS, and since it is solely their decision as to accept/not accept (assuming offered by GM first), why would they? They'll sell the car anyways at this point in time. People are pointing out that only 10,000+ have been ordered to which my response is, wait until the regular public realizes this car is available... Discounts will be few and far between through September IMO. After that, you start running into typical model year end discounts and the like anyways...

My dealer has already signed a contract saying he would give me the GM employee discount, if offered by GM.

When i asked about it, he said he didnt think they would offer it, and i told him i still wanted it in my contract because i think they will offer it. So he called some guy (i dont know if it was just his superior or what) and he sounded pretty confident that there would be GMU and GMS on the camaro.

I emailed GM asking if they were going to honor employee discount and they said they had not made a decision, but that they will honor suppliers. I do not still have the email, but i know for a fact that someone else had posted the letter/email on this site. THEY ARE HONORING SUPPLIERS

Fbodfather said a while back (in PM) that it was unlikely supplier would be offered.

Oh and FYI:

GMS = Employee pricing
GSU = supplier pricing

I emailed the supplier people... here was their reply.

Hello [my name],

We have no information as of yet on if the discount will be offered for this vehicle. You will need to wait until the vehicle is available then you can check the website to see if it is eligible.

Sincerely
[gm rep's name]
GM Supplier Discount


In addition, fbodfather said he didn't think it would be available but he didn't know for sure.

I've got a deal with my dealer for "MSRP or lower including any applicable incentives" so if supplier is available, I'll get it. My fingers are crossed for sure.
