Rich guys have got all the luck, don’t they? Not only do they have more cash than you and I, they get offered better deals than you and I do as well.
Always eager to rub salt in the wounds of us working poor, the bluebloods running Mercedes-Benz have told their American dealers to start offering discounts to their VIP customers. Extremely well-off car buying VIPs can get $750 off on C-Class models, $2,250 for E-Class, $3,000 for GLK-Class and $3,275 for S-Class, and a smooth $5,000 discount on the GL-Class SUV. It is up to the individual dealers as to what constitutes a “VIP.”
Mercedes has thus far enjoyed a fruitful 2012 in the states by topping both Lexus and BMW in total sales, which is a nice turn around from 2011 when the German carmaker was bested by the two in sales in the U.S.
