Is GMS pricing a fixed price or is it negotiable?

My father in law is a retired GM factory worker, which means I have GMS pricing available to me. I'm unfamiliar if the program.

Does the GMS pricing simply offer me a fixed price or can I still negotiate off of that lower price? For example, with BMW's European Delivery program, one saves 7% on the base price. What is sometime misunderstood is that the dealer cost/invoice is also lowered. So, there is still negotiating room.

So, fixed or negotiable?

Don't know about this day and age, but when I bought an Acadia back in 2010, I had GM Supplier pricing (not sure if the prices are the same as employee pricing). But I got a dealer wanting to move an Acadia in a color combo we didn't like, and used his buyer's order at another dealer with a color combo we liked, and drove the price well below the supplier pricing.

I look at the supplier pricing as a data point (as well as the internet) to get the lowest price possible. Just because you are eligible for supplier pricing doesn't mean you have to use the supplier code they give you; in fact, you may find the supplier pricing isn't that great.

I worked for a company bought by GM so I am eligible for employee pricing. Its a fixed price, but usually any existing discounts offered to the public also apply. I'll tell you now the employee price is good but the dealer is sometimes able to beat it. The exact employee discount is disclosed on the GM Family First web page which your father-in-law should be able to log into. I havent checked recently (I've forgotton my password) but usually hot selling cars receive no discount.

Slightly used cars are also available from the GM PEP Program. These are vehicles driven by certain GM employees for "evaluation", some say it is really just a nontaxable benifit, but in anycase PEP cars are discounted by mileage. The biggest discount is for cars over 6,000 miles. I've found only a very few interesting cars like Corvettes are listed on the PEP program mostly trucks, SUVs, and fleet type sedans.

Yes, but it has to be done "under the table". The dealer is audited and whats on all the sales agreements has to match the supplier or employee pricing sheet you use to qualify.

You can however get the dealer to put cashback on a "we owe" form and issue you a check after the sale.

Source: I did this with a GM purchase at supplier pricing.
