GM employee pricing

Okay, I keep hearing people talking and saying they will buy their Camaro at this price and that price and that it will be a little cheaper because of GM Employee Pricing. But when I go on the GM website it says they will be ending this Promotion on September 30th. Am I missing something or what? Are they bringing it back later on in the year or something?
Maybe CamaroScotty or FbodFather can chime in if nobody is knows?
Thanks,

Edit: here is the link if anyone wants to look aswell

just scroll over "GM Vehicles"

I seriously doubt GM will offer employee pricing on the Camaro any time within the first 6 months of it's existance.

If they do I'll hop on one leg backwards to my Chevy dealer to buy it!

If that happens, will you post a video of that?

okay, but even if they do, does this mean you guys believe they will(at some later date) bring this back?
just asking for future purchase reference

I think the people that are talking about GM employee price are either GM employees or GM dealership employees; both of whom should be able to get GM employee pricing (unless GM puts a restriction on the Camaro.) Some dealers may not honor GM employee pricing, however.

They offer it quite a bit actually. Or a version of it, normally near the end of the year when they are scrambling to get rid of the old vehicles. Most of the time its a dealer incentive though, and not directly from GM.

Who else is hoping they do offer the discount so we can see him hopping on one leg?

The GM employee's & family will be able to use their discount on the Camaro, (maybe not with the initial first arrivals)

But when the new C6 Corvette came out, ZO6, Solstice, Pontiac G8, Cobalt SS/TC's when all these new cars came out the employee discount was available...

Now if we're talking about GMS pricing available to the general public... who knows when that will happen again...

I'm not sure that a dealer could not give someone an employee discount or a supplier rate if they qualify for it. Could be grounds to lose your dealer license.

Employee Pricing for everyone is not going to happen again anytime soon. It was used to clear out the 08's and did its job. The last time we had it was 05.

GM is in pretty bad shape and when they need to move cars, Employee pricing is a great way to do it. But I'd be SHOCKED to see them offer it with the Camaro in the next two years. This car will move itself. They should be able to sell as many of them as they can make in the next two years. Why would they discount it ?

Some dealers choose not to participate. They are protected by franchise laws. In my view, they are stupid not to, but several don't.

Some of us (I'm one) are lucky enough to be related to GM employees in such a manner as to qualify for GMS pricing. I don't have to wait for the "employee pricing" special. When I said previously that I would be using my GMS discount, that's what I meant. I can't speak for anyone else.

This is the first time they had employee pricing for everyone (since 2005)....I wouldn't count on it anytime soon in the future. Not to mention, they pick which units they offer it on.

Unless sales really go down the potty....They are they giant, they can do what they want.

If they do employee pricing again when the camaro comes out, i dont think it would pertain to the camaro, I think (dont hold me to this) but camaroscotty said that it wasnt on the malibu.

This is pretty much the best way to do it...

Unfortunately, we can't give out GMS discounts to non-family members. And they are VERY strict about this policy. Some employees have even gotten all their remaining GMS discounts taken away for doing so.

However, we can give out GMU discounts to non-family members, which I believe is invoice pricing, if I'm not mistaken.

They are pretty strict about it. I gave it to my girlfriend even though she's not "family".... yet... but definitely something I wouldn't just to for anyone else that is not an actually a family member. I do know that it can only be given like a max of 10 times a year or something.

Yeah the GM supplier discount can be given to friends which isn't as good as the employee discount, but it's something. Hey invoice pricing works too...

Man this steak has no fat left...

(production cost, dealer cost, sticker price, dealer bills, profit tiny).

And I hardly think asking the people you asked is going to get anyone excited.

If I made a shoe for 20. Sold for 25 and you wanted it for 19 would I want to be like "oh yea let me extend that for ya i'll just eat this air sandwidch".

I was planning on using the college graduate discount this summer since I got my nursing certificate in July of 2007, but was just checking the rules and I'm not sure if I qualify. It says you must have "1. Evidence of enrollment in an associate, undergraduate, nursing or graduate degree program." or "2. A diploma dated no more than two years before the vehicle purchase or lease, from a four-year bachelor's degree, a registered nursing degree, a two-year associate's degree or a graduate degree program." Since I have a certificate in Practical nursing or LPN I don't know. I guess I could try it and show them my certificate and maybe the dealer won't know the difference. I was just checking the prices and it looks like only a $700 difference anyway. If not maybe I could just enroll in the RN program since I was thinking of doing it anyway since it says "enrolled" for nursing and not graduate, but there may be a waiting period to get on the list...

Sometimes members of Credit Unions and other organizations qualify for supplier pricing, which is close to invoice. Check around and if you are eligible my dealer in Wilmington accepts supplier pricing on orders, if you don't have one closer to home that will.
