FYI THINK TANK members may get special pricing.

I just received an email from the Hyundai Think Tank. They offered me special pricing on any Hyundai for my participation in the program. I checked into it and it looks like a good savings below invoice. I priced out a 2.0 Track for 24861.00 TOTAL!! Basically, it looks like they give you employee pricing.

Program Price
Effective May 1, 2007, Hyundai's Associate Purchase Program offers those who qualify the ability to purchase a new Hyundai for less than "dealer invoice minus any applicable consumer rebates".
The new pricing structure for the Associate Purchase Program is as follows:

* Dealer Invoice
* Less 2% of MSRP
* Less Current Consumer Rebate (if any)
* Less Advertising Fee
* Plus Freight

Note that the total invoice includes the inland freight and handling fee listed on the dealer invoice. Dealer-installed accessories that are not included in the price of the vehicle shall be negotiated as part of the total vehicle purchase.

Vendors of Hyundai
Approved vendors who are currently doing business with Hyundai Motor America or Hyundai Motor Finance Co. will receive a Company ID code. This code is required to obtain a claim number on the next screen. This claim number will allow the employee of the approved vendor to go to a participating dealership and purchase a vehicle under the special pricing offered under Hyundai's Associate Purchase Plan. Make sure that you take identification (company ID, Business card, check stub, etc.) that will associate you with the approved vendor.

Friends and Family of Hyundai Employees
Friends and Family of Hyundai Motor America or Hyundai Motor Finance Co. employees must first receive a claim number through their associate at Hyundai. Upon obtaining your claim number, you may either continue on this website to "build-your-own" vehicle and see the invoice pricing on your vehicle or go direct to the dealership. It is important that you take your claim number, however as that is the only way a dealership will be able to identify your association with this program. Make sure that you take a photo ID to the dealership with you as well.

Steps to Ensure a Smooth Associate Purchase
1. Visit Hyundai Associate Purchase Program
2. Generate a Claim Number*
3. "Select a Vehicle" to see your invoice price
4. Locate a participating Hyundai dealership
5. Take the claim number to any participating Hyundai dealership
6. Identify to the dealership salesperson that you would like to purchase a new Hyundai under the Associate Purchase Program
7. Complete the transaction and drive away in your new Hyundai.

Sounds like you can get the deal you deserve. Now if only you could get the car in that you want. At least with this option, you are not forced to purchase during the lease low interest term, therefore do not have to rush to find a car right now. Since I'm now a member of the Hyundai Think Tank, I wonder if this would apply to me as well? No matter, still a ways until I can purchase.

I talked to my sales mgr today & he guaranteed me he could beat that price. Then with the near zero percent lease intro deal would be much better off. I will just have to see when the time comes what the best deal is.

Hyundai Associate Purchase Program
November 2009
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the high demand of the Genesis Coupe, the Genesis Coupe has been removed from the APP until further notice. If it is added back to the program, we will let the Think Tank know as soon as possible. Thanks for your interest in Genesis Coupe!

Dear Think Tank Member:

As one of our valued Hyundai members I am pleased to introduce our Hyundai Associate Purchase Program (APP). This program is designed to provide our members with the ability to purchase a new Hyundai vehicle at preferred pricing through participating Hyundai dealers.

As you can see from the enclosed APP (Associate Purchase Program) Detail Sheet, we have made the program very simple. Just log on to our HyundaiAPP.com website to learn more about the program and its many benefits. You will need to know your ID number which is included in the enclosure. The website will provide you with full program details, allow you to "design a Hyundai", and even show you the invoice price of the vehicle that you are seeking. The APP "preferred pricing" which is less than "dealer invoice, minus any applicable consumer rebates.

We are excited about providing you with this opportunity. I ask that you review the enclosed APP Detail Sheet and log on to the HyundaiAPP.com website to learn more about our new program. We hope you will encourage more of your associates to participate in our new program. We think it is an exciting and very simple way to purchase a new car. Just point and click your way to a no hassle sales experience.

Regards,

David L. Zuchowski
Vice President, National Sales
