I am flying from Minnesota to east Texas to get mine, and it will be well worth the savings.
So how much is the dealer paying you for referrals? since you've mentioned it 3x in the last 2 pages of this thread, are they also paying you for posts volume?

Don't forget about possible other discounts. The national Lease to Retail Conquest may apply to you. It does to my deal.
"Conquest Lease to Buy $1000 Cash Incentive. CLR=Customers currently leasing a competitive (not Chrysler Dodge or Jeep) get $1000 towards purchase. (Not Lease)"

Just had to show copy of active lease with my name (spouse works too) and the registration showing Infinity Leasing as the owner (fraud check), you do not have to be turning the lease vehicle in.

My actual deal (props to "shanhuber")....

2014 Overland Summit 4x4 V8 (WKJT74 w/ 27R package)

Invoice $51,829 (MSRP $54,890)
Less 5.5% ( 2,851)
Conquest $ ( 1,000)
Destination 995
Doc Fee 125
Net $49,098 (plus tax, title)

Update on Lifetime Maximum Care Warranty: A few folks here mentioned they purchased theirs from Harold Zeiglar (online). Zeiglar is a Chrysler dealer. I received a quote from them of $2185.00. Online quotes from Detroit dealers were the same. I asked my dealer to beat $2000. I got the Lifetime MaxCare warranty for $1960. I think if I worked a bit harder I could have purchased it for $1800.

If anyone is willing to travel to the DC area there is another group buy offering 7% below invoice.

Awesome deal for sure, but I am told dealer cost is $1885 for MaxCare Lifetime/$100 deduct.

If that's the dealer cost for the Lifetime Maximum Care, I'm OK with what I paid. It looks like we have the price range for others.

I have not seen any post mentioning the Costco pricing. I will be pursuing the Costco pricing with my dealer.
Is Costco part of the Affiliate program that will work with Shanhuber's group deal?

Sorry, but Costco (or USAA, etc) are not "Affiliates" even though they get you the same rough pricing of about 1% below invoice. You cannot use them with shanhuber's group deal to get down to 5.5% below invoice. Can't give you a solid reason why but I personally tried with the contact to use my Costco or USAA membership to qualify for the Affiliate pricing but he "couldn't".

These "associations" are affinity (no to be confused with affiliate) pricing, whereby, you get a decent price with zero haggling to get there.

How they cobble together discounts to get to a real down and dirty low price has always been very befuddling to me. You hear all the reasons why and what they can/can't do and believe some and others you are just like. "really?" and "that makes no sense". I think it's just years of built up mistrust in my case from all the phony sales tactics that makes me a bit jaded in general when negotiating a car price. Thankfully, shanhuber's contact is a real straight shooter. In the end, don't care how he got there, but he did.

My dealer will give you the best price period. No haggling, just the easiest car buying experience you will ever have. PM me if you want the info. 5.5% below INVOICE. - you will need to join an affiliate, and he will direct you where to go.

I got the ball rolling at the dealer recommended by shanhuber. The contact at the dealer has been great to work with and is happy to give the discount of 5.5% under invoice to us. I will put in my order after I check out a diesel at a local dealer. I should save about $1,300 (over the Costco discount at a local dealer) after figuring in the Affiliate fee and travel costs. I am retired so the travel time is not an issue. For those keeping score at home, below is my planned order.

Limited 4x4 billet WKJP74
Diesel, high-torque 8-speed 22H (EXF, DFD)
8.4 uConnect w/NAV RA4
Off-road Adventure II AWY
Luxury Group II AHN (required with 22H)

It's def a good deal, but the savings quickly start to offset by higher travel expenses the further away you have to come from to pick it up.

Anyone can get 1% below invoice locally, so in the case of Mtnmerlin, the difference between his local dealer @ 1% below and the dealer in east texas that Shanhuber drools about @ 5.5% below is only $2K. If you have to fly in, then you are now paying for a plane ticket, plus hotel, plus gas to drive back home, plus meals while you're on the road, plus hotels (if you can't drive it in 1 day), etc.

Also keep in mind this is for a higher-end Wk2 with MSRP of almost $50K, so in lesser models with lower invoice the savings are even less. This deal is nowhere near the "many thousands of savings" and merits putting pen to paper and doing the numbers to see if it makes sense to travel hundreds of miles for a few hundred dollars.
