Default Please KILL this thread....Chrysler Friends and Family Cert. Needed!

I just retired due to serious health problems and have the cash to buy a new Jeep. In order to get the best pricing I am told I need to be a Chysler employee family or friend.....

If there is anyone here who is an employee and could help me out with this please shoot me a pm. Thanks!

I just bought my JK under one. But the guy that helped me out said they arent supposed to give them out anymore. He had to fish and dig to get the number. He was an executive there too, so he knew who to talk to.

Thanks. I wasn't really looking for your victorious story, and I know that it is somewhat more difficult these days, but the fact is : they are still doing this certificate discount and If it is within the realm of a member here to help me out, so be it. I would be extremely grateful. If not , there was no harm in asking.

Tell them to give it to you anyway or you'll find a dealer who will. They should be about ready to shine your shoes and order you lunch too to sell one right now.

Thanks so much to all of you have relpied to this.

You have all made valid points. They should kiss my butt a little bit. I am trying to support their future and all of our America. When I see all of the "TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE" PRICES in the paper it makes me angry when I call or go there and the give me the absolute runaround. I just want to purchase a Jeep out the door for the best price I can get!

Once again I can't express how wonderful this site is and I thank each and every member here.

BUY AMERICAN!!! AND GOD BLESS THE U.S.A.!

Thank you for clarifying what I said. Maybe the OP didnt understand that THEY DONT GIVE THEM OUT ANYMORE.


I guess I should have answered "NO" to his question. Maybe my anecdote was a bit too complicated for him.

Were they only issued once you had a name to associate with them? I think he's looking for someone that already has one to give, but nobody to give it to.

The point I was trying to make is that the discount is unattainable anymore. Even before all of this bailout credit crisis stuff started my connection and I had to fight tooth and nail to get it. It is highly unlikely I, my connection, or anyone else will be able to get one any time soon. That it, unless, something changes within the company.

And yes, I needed a name, DOB, SS# (i think) and address from both my connection and I for it to work. How he exactly got it, I dont know. I gave him my info, he talked to his people, then he emailed me a form and personally called my dealer.

Id go for a CDI number. But that even, from what Ive heard, is hard to come by anymore too.

PM me and I will put you in touch with someone who would be happy to give you a F&F cert. Give me your e-mail address or other contact info.

That is assuming all the valuable info in this thread hasn't made you change your mind

Points are useless if you fail to make them. I think the failure rested in not previously providing the detailed explanation that my question prompted. They aren't nameless certificates distributed to Chrysler employees for the employees to just hand out to whomever they feel like. Now he'll understand why they are unavailable and aren't just floating around out there for someone to grab.

What about those buyout vouchers? I thought Hosejockey posted that he got one from someone for the truck he recently bought. Are those pieces of paper that the bearer can give to someone else? If so, family only?

Again, there is nothing to "get" if you don't explain. That was a lot more helpful than the previous posts.
