#26 of 626 Chevy Employee Discount Plus NEW WHEELS, GREAT DEALS CERTIFICATE
Jun 27, 2005 (11:12 pm)
I recently totaled my 2005 LS Chevrolet Tahoe in a MVA; thank goodness I was not at fault. The GM Employee Discount could not have come at a better time. Since pickings were slim in the color I was looking for, I opted for a LT Tahoe in Silver Birch; this color is new for 2005 Tahoes. My Tahoe is equipped with everything except navigation and autoride. MRSP-45, 705.00. Employee Discount price was 35,693.38. If you are a previous owner of a Chevy Tahoe, pay close attention to all correspondence from Chevrolet. Don't be quick to throw away any specials that come through the mail. Back in April I received a post card from GM advertising for NEW WHEELS, GREAT DEALS CERTIFICATE . It's details were 2500 allowance on 20 inch rims or 1500 in GM loyalty. Luckily I kept this postcard and was allowed to use it on this deal. The final cost on my 2005 Chevy Tahoe LT was 34,193.38! (5.3 V8 engine, leather, DVD, power glass sunroof, wheel flares, bose premium speakers, 6 cd changer, third row seat, etc.). If you threw away your certificate or unsure if you qualify for this deal, call Chevrolet at 1-866-466-9637. The reps will assist you with verification of eligibility. Then notify your salesman of your eligibility and have him/her call that same number to obtain your certificate number. The NEW WHEELS, GREAT DEALS CERTIFICATE EXPIRES ON 6/30/2005 So Hurry! I really hope this will help someone!
#27 of 626 that is a very nice deal

and more like what was going on last month with the 5k rebate. Looks like you took the $1500. Gotta admit these trucks look PDG riding on 20" rims. I got an email today reminding me GM Card holders are eligible for an additional $1000 bonus cash on platinum and copper cards and $500 on all others until June 30. First I heard about it. Be sure to check if you use a GM Card. BTW, I use it as my business card and often put $2-3k a month on it. With 5% credit it turns into big money quickly. Got $2000 off my 04 Tahoe. . .no catch. . .no questions. . .just a quick phone call by the finance guy as we were signing the papers.

I love my new Tahoe LT (Convenience Pkg, Sunroof, third row, XM). Paid 31770 out the door. Brown & Brown s the best new car dealership in the US.
#29 of 626 that sounds pretty darn cheap

for an LT with a sunroof. Did that count any GMCard money or additional incentives?

DONíT GET RIPPED OFF BY CAR DEALERS!!!!
Late last year I bought two NEW 2005 LT 4x4ís with everything but a sunroof for $33,450 after $1,000 GMC finance rebate. We then refinanced for $50 at a local bank one month later.
Use my GM miles on one of them to save an additional $3000 (so I paid $30,450 for one of them).
This was in Fargo, North Dakota.
We need more of these kinds of sites!!!
#31 of 626 Employee pricing and more!
Jul 14, 2005 (5:17 pm)
2005 Tahoe 2WD LS, MSRP $40,525. Got $1,000 below GMS (empl price), then used $477 in GMCard points and because I used those on a Tahoe, they gave me a bonus of $1250 off. Price came to $31,924 after registration, taxes, doc fees etc. They didn't calculate my sales tax until after the $4727 in rebates were taken off. This included 5.3L engine, bose speakers, bucket seats, onstar, sunroof, 3rd row seats (which will sit in my attic), tow package, locking rear diff & rear axle.
My 2000 4WD Tahoe was totaled by a red light runner and I was quite depressed until I got this new one!

why did they give you $1250 more on the GMCard credits? Is that some kind of added incentive from GMAC? Have not heard of it.

I had no idea it existed until I was at the dealership. The salesman didn't even know until he called to confirm my balance of points to use. The way I found out why I got them (the bonus is on specific cars) was to call customer service for my GM Card. I found an example on their website - however it shows it as expired.
I guess the only way to know for sure is to call.

If the MSRP $40,525 and the total discounts were the following:
1. $1000 (empl price)
2. $477 in GMCard points
3. $1250 because you used the GMCard on a Tahoe
4. $4727 in rebates were taken off
Total incentives and rebates: $7,454
That still leaves a gap of $1147, where did you get the additional incentive or rebate because it should have came out to $33, 071
#35 of 626 Rebate?
Jul 25, 2005 (9:25 am)
Looking at pricing on 2005 Tahoe's....no haggle price is employee pricing minus the rebate? Or are rebates no longer valid with employee pricing program?
