i ended up buying the LX FWD from R&S. the same salesman quoted me 24,941.21 OTD for an EX FWD which is more than your quote. i would just double check and ask for an itemized quote. as i mentioned before, one R&S guy added 199 for the nitro warranty; the guy i bought from didn't mention it and it was still added, but for only 0.01. the way i think about it is, the nitrogen is already in the tire - is it possible to take it out and reclaim it if a customer refuses to pay for it? if you see that nitro warranty, fight like hell to get it out - it's not mandatory as i figured out.
i would seriously consider your quote, and seeing if they could knock it down a bit more. ask about referral bonuses, if they have any to share. big star quoted me 25,600 OTD for an EX FWD; john eagle offered 24,250 OTD for an incoming unit (but would take another two-three weeks), and 25,800 OTD for one in stock on their lot. spring branch honda spoke vaguely on the phone about how they might be able to match the john eagle 24k OTD number, but they didn't have any bare bones ones in stock but still wanted me to come in and negotiate. i declined. honda of spring also wanted me to come in, but said that we were looking at around 26k OTD. kingwood refused to match 24k OTD and said that i must have been mistaken and that 24k was for an LX not an EX. gillman said that they had many EXs in stock, but were not allowed to go over prices on the phone. honda of katy did not respond to my request for an EX quote, but they were competitive on the LX - only problem is they have a $399 pro-pack and a $189 doc fee.
now, back to your question. i was told that R&S did not have any flex cash left when i bought. (John eagle also told me that they ran out of their flex cash two weeks into the month). i qualified for the $500 loyalty by showing my current insurance card (which they copied). just note that the way that they apply it is pretty cunning - they apply it after taxes are calculated. you still pay the OTD price that you negotiated, but they put it in there as a $500 cash downpayment payable by honda. i think that this accounting may have cost me an extra $31.25 in sales tax, but i think i still netted out at 22,500. i also qualified for the 0.9% financing. they were not overly aggressive with the extended warranties, gap and life insurance. the finance guy simply asked and i politely declined, and then we moved on.

Thank you very much rufus4554 for your so detailed information. I'll talk to some dealers you mentioned. Because I'm not hurry to buy, I'll patiently try to find a good deal (I hope).

what model are you looking for? the lowest i got an LX FWD was 22,500 OTD (RS and JE). Katy was 22,700 (they would have been cheaper but insisted on a $399 package of dealer add-ons). For an EX FWD, the lowest quote was from JE at 24k OTD for an incoming unit, then RS at 24,900 OTD (but this was an in-stock model).

Called email live chatted with all local dealers. They all give about same price OTD +/-. Mostly over 26k for 2014 LX AWD. Then made up an offer 23,8 OTD. Can't reach internet managers directly. Only sales reps. DCH first said if i finance 23,8 would be possible but then rep said manager doesnt want to take $1000 loss. Other dealers are related but names are different. Dealers swap, know each other's inventory and how much cars are sold for. Not dealing with NY scammers. Plenty of them in NJ.V

Hope you can help verify my price. I went into Bay Ridge Honda today, mostly just to test drive, but we got so far as pricing and was able to get the following from them after asking for my OTD price - $26,200 was the number they gave...but they didnt include $830 destination in that, so truly $27,030 OTD.
Am I close here, or should I be looking for a better number?

What was the sale price of the EX/awd. The OTD numbers they gave you cant help me. Ny. state taxes and dmv charges are regulated so dealerships cant play around with those numbers.
You need to provide me with the sale price of CRV with or with out dest charge to determine pricing.
Invoice price on that model is 24,549
dest/ charge is .........................830
total at invoice=......................25,379
Your target price to buy should be in the range of 1000 to 1700 below invoice price excluding any flex cash or incentives that apply to you.. We arrive at this pricing from other area sales. Next week the 2013 model is 9 months into this year and on jan,1 2014 it will be considered a 1 yr old model.
factors in pricing is effected by Supply and Demand and your area.
At 1000 below invoice price w dest charge included Bayridge honda should of quoted you....24,379 any price offer higher than this you should deem unexceptable.
here is a breakdown of 1000 below invoice w dealer fee's and taxes
24,379.................. sale price w dest charge
12.50....................nys tire fee
$26,637.50............total price without dmv fee's
200.............................dmv fee's estimated???
$26,837.50................Total OTD Pricing
Check out these 2 dealerships they are both very good with pricing
New Rochelle........... high volume dealership
Yonkers.....................very good dealership with good pricing
Call internet dept and speak with the internet managers only. Wait to next week to try and land a deal.... last 2 days of the month are the best time to start your negotiations and buying process this is when you have the dealers full attention especially dealerships looking to make there monthly sales quota's
