The only way to know a "good deal" is to shop around, check prices, and be willing to make a deal. The elusive "best deal" is all up to the customer and their requirements. If you are basing your "best deal" solely on price, then shopping based only on price is your best bet. Shoot a bunch of e-mails out, call the internet managers, and tell them you will buy the truck today at what you consider to be the "best price". I think all the trucks are priced pretty well right now, that's why I chose to buy one in December of 07. 9K off sticker is pretty good considering the sticker is only 32, that's about 30% off. If you want to get lower, show up with your checkbook and offer them 1500 off that price. You'd be surprised what happens when you pull out your wallet, prices can sometimes go down even further.

The rebates are posted all over the net, including on this site. I signed up for consumer reports car service and that was pretty decent. It's basically the same information you can get from Edmunds plus they give you the dealer holdback (I could not find dealer holdback on Edmunds site). The 2009 F150's come out soon, so they are already dealing on 2008's, lots of rebates and incentives there. If you have a 2007 you like you should be able to get it for 2-3K less than the 08, otherwise your better off going with an 08.

I special ordered my F250 4x4 with the 6.4 liter deisel, camper package, towing mirrors,tilt,cruise and air conditioning nothing else. The msrp on the sticker said $34,935.00. I drove away with it for $30,022.00. 2.9% APR for 60 months. I wander how much they still made off of me. I feel like I got a pretty good deal though. What do you guys think?

We got a great deal on our F150 with discount package, rebates and x-plan at end of March:
-2000 SXT Discount
21683 Z-Plan Price
-1000 FMCC rebate
-500 Retiree Bonus rebate
-500 Because I asked what else since was end of month
$650.50 3.25% Sales tax, plus tax, title and tags in OK.
Ford jams you on the interest rate if you go with them. I've got 800 FICO and still got socked with 8.99% rate for 60 mo. I refied with my credit union last week for 4% for 60 months. Come out ahead taking that rebate though....They're stupid to think people won't refi.....
Great truck for the money.

where does Ford get off charging 8.99% interest in today's market?
also, your deal really shows just how rediculous MSRP and Ford pricing in general is in the real world. It's like the dealer saying jump through this hoop, duck and crawl over there and then slide down that tube and swim back and jump over a fence to see what price you get -
I had to do some of the same stuff when I bought mine - $500 of the deal was predicated that I had a contractors license which made me scramble for a bogus piece of paper to finish the deal.
I mean $26,000 for a regular cab F-150? Who set that as an MSRP?

I just saw a commercial on T.V. this afternoon. In the town of Hull, (province of Quebec) Canada. If you buy a Ford F-150 in stock and you finance it 100% you get the choice between a A.T.V. 500 cc or a 500 cc motorcycle as a "free gift". For a plain F-150 it comes to 588.00$ (can.) / month for 60 months. You kind of pay for your "free gift"

In NY, they are advertising employee pricing on Ford F series.
Jun 20, 2008 (8:28 am)
I believe this is a national advertising campaign - I see the employee pricing ads here in California as well.
FYI: Employee pricing is deceptive. It certianly isn't lower than what you could get with some well guided negiations or even better than when they offer something like $10k below MSRP which is common on some of the pricier SUV's on the market.
To think that the public can get their cars for the same cost as the employees of Ford, which they can, just shows how worthless employee pricing is to the employees of Ford. It isn't worth much more to the public either.

Your very wrong on that. Its not xplan pricing its A-plan. Which unless your looking at a truck during model year change over you can't pay that price for it! Your saving at least $1000 off what you can negotiate. Now with that said the prices are not a whole lot better than last month with higher rebates, but your advantage comes on the tax side. You pay taxes on rebates not on discounts so your acutally saving more money than you think! But to say employee pricing is deceptive, you have the wrong information.

GoBlue and Others:
A-Plan and X-Plan are great programs, but you can do better now. I bought my F-150 Harley Davidson with Saleen package, very rare truck they don't offer X-plan on usually, for X-Plan less about 3K. Yes, X-plan minus about 3K. This was back in December, I have the invoice to prove it. How did I do it? Well, they weren't selling many trucks back then, and they still aren't. I had a trade and I knew what the value on the trade was. I showed up with my checkbook and told them I'd give them XX cash and my truck for the Harley. After about 5 minutes of "we can do this for this price per month" I made out a check for the XX price ($30k), then put my keys on the counter and told the guy to see the GM, he had 3 minutes or I was gone. We made the deal, it took 3 minutes, and they wanted to do it X-plan because they made more money that way, or lost less that way, depending on your perspective (they get money back somehow for that plan, not sure how it works). They gave me more for my truck than it was worth, plus they subtracted an additional 2k from X-plan. I don't know how they did it and I sure didn't care. I had tried this tactic with 2 other dealers and had to leave without the truck. The 3rd time was the charm. If you have cash or great credit then you can make all kinds of deals happen. If you have a hard time getting money then you're going to pay more. It's just my 2 cents. This is my 3rd F150 and I love them.
