Estimated Savings for Edmunds Special Offers

How does Edmunds calculate the Estimated Savings?

This price is an estimated dealer price based on the selected trim level minus the average savings that dealers in your area are offering. This is not an actual Price Promise, but rather an estimated price based on average savings that are available for this particular model in your area.

I have submitted for multiple quotes, but I am not finding anything close to the Estimated Savings. What gives?

If you are seeing a large discrepancy, we first recommend double checking that you are submitting for the same model and trim level that you saw the estimated savings for. For example, you might see an Estimated Special Offer for a Honda CR-V LX while you are submitting your information for a Honda CR-V EX-L. If you have verified that you are indeed submitting for the same model, trim level, and in the same ZIP code but still aren’t finding any offers remotely close to the estimated savings/dealer price, we’d love to hear from you. Please click here, and we would be happy to verify the accuracy of the estimated savings.

Can you tell me which dealer(s) are offering these savings?

We can’t direct you to a specific dealership, but you are welcome to submit your information for as many quotes as you wish.

    Just thought I would share my Edmunds chat...this price promise.. is a good thing... IF you are a DEALER

    just wanted to say how hilarious this price promise is... I expected better from Edmunds...no  to be had... the 'promise' on my 2015 CRV was 75 dollars yes...75 off sticker..hahaha.... i need to tell others before they waste their time

    Arwen joined the chat

    where on the site can we give feedback on this waste of time

    Hi Mark. I'm sorry you didn't find an offer better than that for the 2015 CRV in your area. Was this the standard discount on all of the vehicles, or just one that you looked at?

    Mark 

    on the EX I looked at...but no matter...

    Arwen

    Each Price Promise offer is set up by the dealer selling the vehicle, so they set the rebates and the discount. It can vary from dealer to dealer

    Mark 

    yes ED munds should say the real promise is to the DEALER

    where do i comment... others should see this drivel

    specifically on the price promise?

    Arwen

    I really do want to say that each price varies, and that the discount may change from offer to offer. You can leave feedback on whatever topic you like.

    That is the only place to leave feedback for the site in general

    Although I will pass along your feedback to the Dealer Support team as well. What is the dealership that you looked at?

    Mark Cooper

    I see this as a blatant benefit to dealerships but not consumers... reminds me a bit of true car

    The dealers were in FL... but again.. that should not be the point

    Edmunds must have spent a bundle on these TV ads

    Arwen

    The reason I ask is so that I can also search for the CRV in your area to see what discounts are showing. As I have said, the prices vary from dealer to dealer. I am happy to help you search

    Mark 

    no need... I can do it the old fashioned way.. this is just a way for dealers to bug you with MSRP like offers

    Arwen

    Most discounts vary, but are usually over $ 1000 off or more. I'm sorry you didn't find the results that you wanted

    Mark Cooper

    1000 dollars off sticker unless it is a very hard to find car is not much

    the people who use it must have never bought a car before

    I just want to make sure I tell other people so they don't expect much out of this so called 'promise'

    Arwen

    The Price Promise offer isn't necessarily the lowest price out there - it is just an upfront offer from the dealership. That is all that is meant by the Promise. That no haggling is needed. Again, I am sorry that you didn't find what you were looking for.

    Mark 

    no worries.. this is a great program for dealers and I am sure they fully support it..hahaha..

    thanks

    Thank you for your feedback on the Price Promise program in your area. 

    The Price Promise program is not a guarantee of the lowest offer, but rather a guarantee of an upfront price from a dealership. While most Price Promises offer savings quite a bit more than the $75 you saw, it does vary on the vehicle and the area. While you did not provide your exact location of your search, I did do some digging around the state of Florida, as well as some neighboring states. This vehicle is very popular, and the discounts given are very low across the board. The highest discount I saw was for $1,047 in Orlando, FL. 

    If you could provide the URL to the pages you were searching for the Price Promise offers in your area, I would like to investigate the dealerships to make sure that they are using the best practices for the program.
