Thanks!! Not sure why it didn't show up with FedEx Express, may be a management conspiracy... ;-)

To get the X-Plan discount you need to go to the "life care" website.

PM me if you can't find it.

I'm familiar with the Lifecare site I think, but is that a plan worth using or can you get a better deal with all the black Friday sales going on? From what I've seen you're looking at about 20% off MSRP right now on a 2014 Silverado/Sierra...

Thanks!

Flaps,

It's good to know the price from the x plan. It's a good starting point, but if you like to negotiate, you can probably do better...

X plan should be for Ford vehicles. Use the Supplier discount for the Silverado. The Supplier discount (GMU) is Invoice + $200. You might be able to do better on your own or thru USAA.

Yes --- and USAA website if you're a member

However, still negotiate a bit

In 2006, I found many Honda dealers willing to match or beat the USAA price

Additionally, in 2013 I found another local Honda dealer willing to sell $400 below the TrueCar.com price

Both are good services if you want to do little --- or zero --- negotiation, but they are still not the bottom line cheapest prices available

Thanks all, the USAA membership is worth between $750 and $1000 of the bottom price too I've found out so far.

Cheers!
