I have a EC plan number through a friend which will expire in September.
The employee discount numbers are valid for the entire calendar year.
Also, the EC (Employee Choice) program ended at the beginning of this year. There is a Friends discount available, which is approximately 1% below invoice, plus any other rebates or price incentives.
There is also an EP (Employee Purchase) program but you must be a close relative of the actual employee to qualify for it.
Finally, there is a CDI (Certain Designated Individual) program, which allows an employee to give out ONE control number to someone. They can use that number to purchase a vehicle at the employee purchase price. There is a $200 program fee added to this but the discount is slightly better than the Friends program.
I hadn't heard about the CDI program until I looked it up just now. It says the following are eligible for the CDI discount: All Chrysler Executives,salaried and hourly employees, Retirees, Chrysler Financial and Cerberus Employees. I thought it was open to anyone.
The dealer will have the actual price for each of these programs printed on the invoice. If you have a control number you may request to see it.

Okay, I found some new info today on the CDI employee purchase program.
The program runs Aug. 11 - Sep. 30. A Chrysler employee can give out ONE control number to anyone but it must be used by Sep. 30.
The following vehicles can be purchased under the program: All Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge branded vehicles are eligible for purchase or lease under the CDI Program except for Dodge Sprinter, Grand Cherokee SRT8, Dodge Challenger, Dodge Viper Coupe, and Dodge Viper SRT10 Coupe.
The CDI extends Employee Pricing to the recipient of a CDI number. The Employee Pricing level is approximately 4% - 6% below factory invoice or 8% - 14% below MSRP, depending on the vehicle model being purchased. The customer will incur a $200 processing fee for using this incentive.

Does anyone happen to have an extra? I am this close to upgrading my 02 T&C and this would be the final push.

I wish I had an endless supply of these to give out. Unfortunately, Chrysler limits us to one per employee under the CDI employee price plan.
What I have suggested in the past that people do is to do a Google search for many of the Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep forums that can be found all over the Internet, not just here on Edmunds.
Many Chrysler employees are also Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep owners who regularly surf the forums. Post a request for a CDI control number on some of them and see if you get any replies.

Finally decided to trade in my 2007 Odyssey after driving it barely a year and HATING it the whole time! Fell for the Honda hype after driving a T&C for years and am now slinking back, lol!
I know I am going to take a hit for selling a car after driving it one year, so if anyone has a code to take away some of that bite it would be great! I hope to buy tomorrow if they are open; Tuesday if not.

I know it is late in the game, but I have been checking all over without any luck. If anyone has a CDI number for me to use I would deeply appreciate it. My wife and I have 5 children and we really want to get an '08 Dodge Grand Caravan with the 28M pkg and sunroof (possibly NAV).

Hey Tedebear. Do you have a CDI number you could spare? Is the Challenger included yet?

Sorry, I no longer work for Chrysler. I took a buyout last November after 25 years with the company.
