American Express Auto Price Certification?

Anyone ever used this? I went through my Amex account online and they sent me a quote for $700 over invoice along with contact info for a few local dealerships. $700 over invoice is pretty damn good. Do dealerships play ball on this, or is it too good to be true? Any experience with this program?

AMEX, Overstock, USAA or Bofa uses Zag. Link for overstock:-

Costco, AAA, Samsclub, etc use different type of price structure.

Good if you don't like to haggle and for newly released model.

I used USAA recently, which uses a very similar service, and it was great. I got $500 over invoice from several dealers, including my normal CA who wasn't part of the program. I showed him the offers from other dealers who were, and he matched it.

By all means, use it and save yourself $2500 off MSRP!
