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.

LuxII Invoice 2670
ORII Invoice 2221
MINUS 5.5% on all the above

I think Mark is giving you better pricing on the ORII pack. He is giving you pricing based on a gas model. For some reason, the invoice price jumps on the oil burners.

Maybe for you $2250 savings is not that much, but to some of us, we consider it quite a savings. If people live within a days drive, well worth it. I personally will make a vacation out of the trip.

Yeah, for me it is about 1,100 miles to the dealer. I am still contemplating it for the reasons discussed. One way to look at it is going on a week long vacation and getting paid $1,000 over expenses.

It's not $2,250 for everyone. In my case, if i had gotten 5.5% below invoice when i bought our '12 Laredo X, the difference between your dealer and mine would have been $1,500.

For people like Mtnmerlin who have to travel +1,000 miles to get it and spend half the savings on T&E it's not this slam dunk you make it out to be, and you shouldn't be misleading people saying it'll save them "many thousands of dollars" b/c it is simply not true.

Best price= employee price + rebates and discounts at any dealer. No haggling, dealers shows the EP price on invoice and subtracts additional discounts. You could to try and find someone to get the family and friend discount.

I have seen a 2014 jeep GC Laredo lease 0 down $189 a month advertised.

How would I get my local dealer to give me the EP? I will try it given the right ammunition. The EP is about $250 higher than Mark's price. FFP is about $2,200 higher than Mark's price. The Costco price is probably about the same as FFP.

Sorry for the many posts, but I wanted to add one more point. Tucson has a lovely 7.1% sales tax. Mark's $2,100 lower price saves an additional $149 in sales tax. That additional savings doesn't quite cover the fuel cost driving home, but it helps (eg: 1100/25*3.8=$167).

thought you had to pay sales tax at the state of residence once you register it there, but i've never bought out of state.

You need a PIN.

You have to pay taxes for the state you live in.

On a side note, the 5.5% below invoice INCLUDES the Ecodiesel. I don't know why people are bashing me here for this deal, I am only trying to pass along a savings. If you don't want it, move along, but it is a "slam dunk" if you don't believe me, make the call, and see what kind of deal you can get. Also, since this includes the Ecodiesel, you are saving over $2000 minimum. In my eyes, (and per definition) that is "thousands"
