What deal to use?

Thinking of buying a new truck. Want to order it so who knows if the employe pricing will be round when I get it. I do work for a co. that is a "supplier" or what ever so I can get the supplier discount. Whats the deal about a few members that work for GM and send out those certificates? Is it the same basic deal as the supplier? I also have a few GM card points. Now I gota find out what I can use them with.....last time I bought a truck is was cheaper to just haggle with em then use my "supplier" deal. How do these all compare? I dont quite know if I trust the dealer, wether it be because he wants me excited about employe pricing and so I buy quick or just becasue he really dont know. TIA

HI RATLOVER, & here are your questions answered. Lowaest price to buy a vehicle is called "PREP CARS,Milage cars & other names. These are vehicles that the "Big Boys put miles on & you get to buy them as a G.M. employee. Next is G.M.S.(General Motors out of stock.) We used to have G.M.O. (General Motors Ordered) They combined these 2 to make it easy for the people that keep track of the programs. These are ones that are on the dealers property or ones that you can ordered, if delivered before the deadline expires. Next is G.M.S.D. (General Motors Supplier Discount.) These are available to anyone that can't get any discounts for a G.M. Vehicle. These are passed out by a G.M. employee / retiree. We get to use 2 G.M.S.D.Pricing Authorization#'s per person per month. G.M.S. is located on an invoice. Ask to see the invoice & you will see it listed. Under that Price is the G.M.S.D Price. (F.Y.I.) G.M.S.= 15% off of M.S.R.P. G.M.S.D. = 12% off of M.S.R.P G.M. card points are sometimes subtracted,depends on the dealer! Both G.M.S. & G.M.S.D. prices don't inclue any rebates. Howard

I'm here to help in whatever way possible!

I went just the other day to trade in my 2001 Suburban and 1997 Pontiac Grand Am on an 06 Yukon XL ($48,000 vehicle) the dealer here has the "Red Tag" prices right now so the price for the Yukon was $39,000. I do get the GM Supplier discount because I work at Lowe's. Here's the fun part, they were set to give me a whopping $6500 for my 2001 Suburban and $750 for my Grand Am. I nearly fell out of my seat. They said that the red tag price is the supplier discount price and that since the employee pricing and all that other stuff has come out, the trade in market has dropped drastically, his words-the bottom has fallen out of it. I'm sorry but I know my 01 is worth alot more than $6500. What is your take on this?
