General Motors ended its Employee Discount for Everyone bonanza at the beginning of October, but it shouldn't be too hard to get a GM vehicle for the price employees pay thanks to a new initiative meant to goose the automaker's sales during this downturn. As it's done a few times in the past, GM is allowing each of its workers to bestow the gift of employee pricing to two additional persons of their choice. With sales painfully low, this move should come as a surprise to no one. Plus, these tactics work, to a degree, as the General's sales figures were actually a few percentage points better than its rivals during September when the Employee Discount for Everyone promotion was in full effect. With that in mind, you can still get a good deal on a GM vehicle just by asking around.

      That's fine, but I still can't afford one because they don't lease vehicles anymore.

      This sort of chaotic pricing is a bad thing. Today it's one price, tomorrow maybe much lower, next month who knows? So prospects will just wait and wait and wait. Yet a real advertised low price might get them to buy today. But if they have to go hunt down a GM employee, they'll just wait.

      is my mind playing tricks on me, or didn't autoblog say that GM was suing dealers for giving out employee numbers for pricing before? and now they can?

        Yes! use Joe the GM employee's discount ASAP...

        ... we are laying him off November 1st. Good news is Joe the ex-GM employee can still use his old work perk to buy one last GM car or truck

        Can you live in a $10,000 2008 Silverado truck Joe? The dealers already have them in the local SE/ MI papers

      But,... Um I don't want to buy any GM cars.

      I want to like the Cobalt SS for its amazing performance, but I just can't get past that ugly front end... =(

      Wonder what an '09 CTS-V will go for with employee pricing. Probably still more than I want to pay. Dammit!
