Ford and Chrysler jump on the "Employee Discount" bandwagon with GM
Ford and Daimler Chrysler have now anounced "Employee Discount" plans similar to GM.
GM is doing very well with their Employee Discount program and now everybody's doing it.
This item has been widely reported online, so I'm not sure who to "Hat Tip" on this one So I think I'll mention that BlueOvalNews and AutoBlog talked about it in more detail.
My purpose is not to inform you about this, but to pose this question. Now that Ford has this new program of "Employee Discounts", is the earlier program of actual employees handing out PIN numbers still active?
The reason I ask is this, the Mustang and Escape Hybrid are exluded from this new program which expires August 1st. The program I had discussed and recieved an offer from a generous Ford employee to use one of their PIN's did not exclude these models and ran out September 30th.
FordDirect.Com and local dealer Internet Sales departments are sending out emails to previous customers offering them this new discount program.
I could have gotten my Mustang with the PIN, but not this way. Could a Ford employee or someone that knows for sure email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me kow?
Or just comment on this post.
