Loyalty depends on region and car

Yes - you can get the $750 loyalty credit without using AFS. Additionally, don't ask for % off and let the sales team use the loyalty as a part of the % off, as these are two separate negotiation tactics. The $750 loyalty expires in early April.Also, ignore SCarGuy, he sells Audi's and lies about financial information on these forums and creates a lot of confusion with inaccurate details, maliciously.

Thanks, I saw that the loyalty incentive is from something like 1/2 - 4/3. I will be negotiating % off separately from applicable incentives, so I wanted an idea whether I would qualify for the incentive, as I am wary that the dealership would pocket the incentive and pass none of it on to me.

Thatís a pretty harsh comment about a long time member who has been very helpful to other members of this community!

again - loyalty is regional and qualification can change, just like any other incentive

last year loyalty was on 05+ cars in the household. Now itís on Ď09+ (not sure why they made such a huge jump). Thereís also a limit they allow you to use a VIN for loyalty. I wish they made it easier tbh, itís a great program, has nothing but upsides for all involved.

The other qualifier for loyalty is that addresses must match (they donít care about names they care about ďhouseholdsĒ). Again, something I wish they would modify. The more incentive programs they offer for a buyer without jumping through hoops, the better.

Any dealer should gladly extend any incentive that any client qualifies for whether itís loyalty or anything else (pull ahead, etc)....zero reason not to in fact. Some cars have marketing discounts for Feb....I always toss that to the client side too. While Iíd love to sell everything at full MSRP, itís not reality..a deal is always there to be done and Iíll do any reasonable deal out there regardless of the car. Itís the only way that makes sense.

SCarGuy, Thanks for the clarification. And can I assume the incentives, loyalty or otherwise, are what's current at the time of actual purchase, not when an order is placed and a deposit given?

typically, yes. There might be some things that can be locked in early - Iíd have to read the addendums over to double check.

when I do an order, I am doing it as a fixed % discount on the car, and then whatever incentives a client qualifies for simply get stacked on top of that, so itís just an additional amount off for the buyer.

I agree. Heís now editing his posts since I called him out on it. Easy to judge the mistakes of others, difficult to recognize our own mistakes.

I have yet to see him lie about anything on this site. Yes, he does sell Audis, but why is that a bad thing? I can confirm that his info is accurate and truthful.
