Looks like dealers are getting desperate and trying to get sales anyway they can.

Just saw on Edmunds that marketing support is at $350, down from $1500 for last month. The dealers in my area, se PA have all increased their prices $500. Early prices on 2013 models I've received are 250-850 under MSRP. So come the end of the month will I have to admit I lost a gamble and pay the extra 500 or do you think I can get it for what it was offered to me in Sept.? Any idea where the prices are going on 2012 models come November? Did Mazda 3 reach the bottom in September? Maybe since 2013's are not discounted much they think there will be a big demand for 2012's, thus the slight price increase. So where is the extra support coming from since Mazda cuts back from 1500 to 350 yet price increase is only 500? I'm sure you experienced buyers know the answer to this one. So, buy now or wait? Thanks!

It's worse than that. The $1,500 was an alternative incentive to Mazda financing; the $350 is tied to it. So, if you have your own or don't qualify for the 0% and don't want the rate the dealer comes up with, you lose even the $350.
This is a bold move considering that the 2013's are now out and the lots are still packed with 2012's.

The dealers I'm negotiating with haven't increased the quoted OTD. One in fact said the incentives "were not increased". I'm sure they would let me know if the incentive decreased.
As you said, the lots are full. I'll wait it out.

I just checked out the 2013 on the Mazda website and it looks like the 6-speed Manual Transmission is now standard on the i Grand Touring!!! The 2012 was only offered with the 6-speed Automatic, which is now optional! Just FYI!

The $350 cash can be used WITH 0% APR.
Previously it was either 0% OR $1500.

According to dealers I've been getting quotes from recently, it seems there is $1,500 without Mazda special (0%) financing or $350 with it. All have given quotes on this basis.

Donít know about specific incentives, but I just purchased a new white Mazda3 iTouring AT on Oct 4th for $17,300. Was going to wait for the end of December specials on a 2013 model, but it doesnít sound like there are going to be any significant changes on the 2013 iTouring models, so I went ahead and pulled the trigger. Felt like a good deal to me.
