Employee pricing

Hi everybody,
I see ford employee pricing is back.
Is this the best deal as far as incentives go?
Keeping in mind that the costco 1000 discount is gone, I'm wondering if it is as good as last month.
I have a choose between the two as my factory order will soon be delivered.

Depends on the dealer sometimes, but I'd say Employee Pricing is a pretty good one to jump on, I saved almost $14000 on an FX4.

Best deal is a little subjective, but if you do a "Build & Price" on ford.ca, it adds up to over $12000 off.

I'd say you'd probably do as good as any other time, if not a little better.

one of my favourite parts of the province.

Couldn't tell you about lake temperature, I'm a fifteen minute walk from the beach, but haven't been there yet this year. lol

Otherwise, it's summer and things are as busy around town as always.

a good dealer will calculate the better of the two deals for you and give you whichever is better.

Thanks 5pointslow,
I guess I'm cynical - won't the dealer mess with the numbers in his favour?
Wouldn't it be best for me to take the original offer the dealer gave me and compare it to a "build and price" result? (going in fully prepared)
I'm probably over thinking this - but I know I will be mental with excitement when I go in and see the new truck there!

I can understand that. always good to go in with your own calculations done.
also depends on how you feel about your sales guy.
you know the price you were originally paying, like others said you can build and price to see what the new price would be.
bring it up, see what they say/what answer they give you.
see if theyre honest with you.
would be interesting.
no more Costco though?
only on lincolns now?

A smart saleman will look at the big picture and skew the numbers in favour of the customer.

Happy customer = Return customer.

That's why I've been dealing with one guy in Kincardine for the last 10 years for all my vehicles as well as my wifes.

As an offshoot, they get my business for service and parts, and things have worked really well, I think dealerships make more on service than sales anyway.

Sounds like you're being smart, do your homework for sure, the "Build & Price" is a great tool, used it myself lots, and the price I paid was always less.

Good hunting. lol

When it comes to buying a truck the 2 best times are the Built Ford Tough Event and Employee Pricing Event.

BFT is when you get $1000 in accessory upgrades (tonneau, deflectors, etc) and a decent amount off, usually in the winter/spring.

I think Employee Pricing is a better discount on the vehicle though.
