The $2000 loyalty is for Mercedes Benz owners or lessees who currently drive a Mercedes Benz that qualifies. Originally, it started November 2, 2010 and was due to expire 1/4/11. They extended it through the end of January. To find out how far into February it goes, check Mercedes Benz E class in Edmunds, then click on incentives. You should find that is goes through February 2 or 3. As for "official", it is offered by Mercedes Benz through its franchized dealers. Once you have negotiated your best price, take $2000 off that price. The dealers gets its $2000 back from Mercedes.
Hope this helps

I bought at House of Imports Mercedes Benz. E-mail me if you have questions dbabillbaldiyahoo.com
Pretty easy and straight forward. I negotiated only over the phone. They offered the warranties but as soon as I said no nothing else was said regarding it. The 1.9 for up to 66 months and $2,000 is being offered for current Mercedes Benz customers I think who currently have a loan or lease with them. I realize their is wiggle room with the 1.9. I'm really OK with getting a good deal. I'm not someone who wants to haggle for the last few hundred bucks. So getting $6,500 off + $2K off + 1.9 for 66 months with zero down makes me really happy.

To all that are currently considering buying a Mercedes. I just recently bought my second Mercedes. My wife and four year old were in a bad car accident a few weeks ago in our 2009 E class. My wife and another car hit each other on a freeway here in California both going around 50-55 miles per hour. My Mercedes was completely totaled. However my wife walked away with just a bruise on her knee and my four year old was just fine. I didn't even consider buying any vehicle besides a MB. I Thank God that they were OK. It was truly a miracle. I can not stress enough when buying a vehicle that safety should be your first concern. I see friends and some family members who run out and buy their 18 year olds a little car that would be smashed like a pancake if they were in an accident. I have 12 years to go before my daughter will drive but I Know that my daughter will be driving a MB. Not for the status or what others will think but because I will know that she will safe if the unthinkable happens.

Yes, you got a good deal, danapointman. The only thing I was able to do was 7500 off sticker, but I have purchased 4 Mercedes E class vehicles from the same dealer for many years, and they always give me a triple net price.
I was able to get 1.49% for 66 months and if I had pushed, I could have gotten .9%, but it was not worth it since my dealer gave me a fantastic deal and he had to make something in the back end.
Enjoy your new Benz. I have always enjoyed my Mercedes vehicles. Never had any problems with any of them.

I agree completely. They have made Mercedes vehicles one of the safest brands on the road. Luckily I have not had a serious accident in one, but I did in a Lexus GS300. Car was seriously damaged, 22,000 dollar worth. Was hit in the rear by someone going 70 mph and I was "stopped". I was hit so hard, I went flying into the rear of a truck that was 500 feet in front of me. Interestingly enough, none of my airbags went off, even though I hit the truck in front of me with great force. IF I HAD BEEN IN A MERCEDES BENZ AT THE TIME, THE AIRBAGS WOULD HAVE INFLATED AND I WOULD HAVE BEEN SAVED MANY MONTHS IN THE HOSPITAL!
#785 of 2218 Is this a good deal or not
Jan 24, 2011 (2:02 pm)
Carman - I posted this in the other MB forum - so pardon the double post - no one has answered that one
Just curious if this is a good deal.
2011 E350W - P2 package plus sun room, split rear seats, leather, paladium silver
MSRP with $875 destination and delivery is
Price they are selling it for $51981.00
Sales tax #3248.81
Other fees (385.99) license, title, etc
51 month lease, due at signing first month's payment +license title - $981.00
Payment - $699
Money factor - .00260 (I have top credit, returning customer, turning in other E350 3 months early)
Seems like they are not taking off the current $2k promotion - and seems like they are adding a small amount to the money factor. I'm in TX - and I believe they could use tax credits to get rid of that tax - which is what I'm pushing for. Thoughts? Update on this - they say no tax credits (whatever) and that the $2k is already factored in.

Yes, it is an excellent deal. They must be taking off the 2k promotion in order to price the vehicle the way they are. Over 8K off sticker is an excellent deal, however I do not know how that relates to a lease. They may have another incentive on leases. The 2k off should apply to leases.

Sounds like a great deal. Indium Silver nice, P2 w/4matic great. Just enjoy. You'll find that the new E class is far superior to the old body style and suspension. Corners better, handles better, more room in the interior, and a much heavier feel to the vehicle even though the weight is very similar to the old E class.
24 month lease is a perfect lease since you don't tire of the car in that short a period of time.
#789 of 2218 I am finished!
Jan 25, 2011 (7:31 am)
Bought the car over the weekend.
Iridium Silver, black
MSRP $63170, bought at $55750 included $1000 fleet discount.
Now I have the question about those insurance the dealer try to sell to me. My biggest question is on the Tire and Wheel Protection, do I really need it?
