Default Getting Discounts at a GM Dealer

I dont know I've never tried until yesterday.

Basically I go in needing the fuel sending unit sensor, the lady at the counter says ok, that will be $43 plus tax. I say..um what about my discount? Shes like "oh ok, let me refigure this out"....few minutes later...."That will be 27.54 plus tax"

WTF?

I also called a while back to see what a set of mirrors would cost, they were about $500 a piece (yeah just for a mirror lol)...I asked if he could "come down" on the price and he said he could give them to me for $350.

Whats up with the GM Dealer'* pricing schemes? Are they trying to rip off the general public and only people that think they are entitled for discounts receive them?

I dont understand it. Perhaps I can get a REMAN transmission for $1300 instead of $2000

Next time you go the parts department say "does that price have my discount factored in?"

With my luck they'd ask me who I was and why I feel as though I should get a discount

My dealer discount is better than GMPD pricing, and I don't pay shipping. That includes parts not in stock that come from another dealer or the warehouse in Portland or Pheonix.
