In recent employee pricing incentives, discounts have provided about a 7- to 10-percent savings when compared to the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. On a $25,000 car, that’s anywhere from $1,750 to $2,500 discount. Many of the offers have also been teamed with cash-back bonuses bringing down the price even further.

The latest automakers to offer employee pricing are Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep. On top of the employee pricing and cash-back incentives, zero-percent financing is offered to qualified buyers for up to 48 months. The offer expires at the end of February; you can find a few examples below from the KickingTires article on the offer.
