You will only get $1,250 if you finance through USAA. If you finance through a different lender the discount is $1,000.

When talking price with the dealerships, try not to mention the USAA incentive. Get their best price, then apply it. Remember, it's an incentive so it's not coming out of their pocket. But if they know you qualify then they'll try to incorporate it into the deal and offer you $500 over invoice when it's actually $1,500.

Good luck!
