Another incentive tease

Okay why is it that everytime I go into a GMC dealership I hear of a new incentive? I was in Vegas last week took a test drive and the guy says they have a few incentives going ,with all of them added together around $3500.One week later I'm down in AZ and go in for a parts run for my 6.5(that never happens lol pos) and the guy tells me if I buy now that there are around 5k worth of incentives.Do they just randomly pull these out of their arses or what? Do they only get these from the factory or do they sometimes add their own?Because if he has 5k worth I'm gonna bite with my price plus his incentives and see what he does. Someone fill me in on this fuzzy incentive math.

I'm new here, but I'll bite. The actual incentives are available on gmbuypower.com, under "current offers". Dealers will sometimes take $2k from MSRP and add that to the GM incentive (say $3000) and call it a $5000 "incentive". Sometimes there are additional regional dealer incentives. Right now I don't think there is anything available. Incentives are usually a little deeper on leftovers from the previous year model.

The dealer incentives are basically worthless. They toss out a "discount" number but it's based on full retail. For example: If they are discounting an extra $2K off the truck, that's $2K that anyone can negotiate off of MSRP.

As txjeep says, check the current offers in your area on the net. They also run some less advertised rebates - $500 for Farm Bureau members for example.

This sounds familiar. Over the holidays, we had a gay time at Las Vegas dealerships too. Even got the triple pass-off at the one on 95 (I hate that!).

Incentives appear to change from month-to-month. The loyalty rebate is back now.

We discovered a certain dealership in Idaho and that's where we are going from now on.
