since i am not a usaa member (not eligible) can someone just build my car on the usaa website and let me know the price they are offering to see how good of a deal i got. I went with a 2014 bmw 428 x drive....alpine white in color. I got the sportline package and the driver assistance package. I hear usaa has the best deals and just curious how close i came to them. Thanks to anyone who is willing to do this for me.

Not sure why you care about that, but this may answer your question:

I thought all you have to do is pay like $48/year to be a member?

I planning on joining a year before my current lease is up for a rebate check if I go Bmw again.

I believe.
To get the discount you must have insurance through them, which requires being a veteran or being the dependent of someone who has insurance with them.

yep seems to be what is needed.

on the usaa website...for members only, you can build any car kind of like true car. I got my car for under true cars price. Beat it almost by 1k. I want to know if i came close to the USAA price.

Wow, TrueCar has a crap price with it at 1000 below msrp basically.
USAA was a bit over 1k over what you had, but that had a 1k BMW incentive, not what I'm seeing as possibly a 2k incentive available.

So yes, you got a good price.
And as long as you are happy with the price, you got a good price

lax854, try carsdirect.com. Over the years I've found that their target price is pretty accurate although I'm generally able to beat it by a little.

There's no charge to be a member. You just have to qualify.

Not exactly. You have to be a qualified member. I am, but don't use them for insurance. I called and they sent me a letter. My CA wasn't familiar with the process, but he talked to his sales manager after I emailed him the letter and they took $1000 which was the BMW incentive at the time.

This isn't exactly on the OP's topic, but just for clarity - eligibility to join USAA and actual membership are not the same thing. Membership is established by taking a property and casualty policy with them.

Sorry, but that's just incorrect. I have a member number, but I have never had any insurance with them.

It may be counterintuitive, but having a "member" number does not mean you're actually a member. I had a member number and used the services I was eligible to use for several years when I was enlisted before becoming a full member after I was commissioned. (In those days actual membership was only available to commissioned officers and certain federal law enforcement and State Dept employees.) Actual membership is established by purchasing a property and casualty policy. A limited number of USAA services are available to the general public.

My member number was enough to get me the discount and I can buy insurance if I want, so I'm as much of a member as I'd need to be. To your point, my wife got a USAA credit card about 25 years ago without any service relationship. I don't know what else she'd be eligible for if anything because we've never needed to check.

You can open up a USAA membership online by establishing a bank account with them. This is what I did several years ago and I was never in the military. It's true that I can't obtain insurance but I can use the auto program. Unless your a member with the military connection you are not eligible for any deals USAA has worked out with the manufacturers.As of a year ago USAA was using the same service that Consumer Reports was using. You can sign up for a fee to use the CR service.

Why not join PenFed? It costs $5.00 to join. Use their car buying service and they bang out the price, no negotiating. for me it just under invoice on a 2013 335i. They contact your local dealer with whom they are affiliated.

Great program and they have the best financing rates around (can lease directly from the dealer too, your choice).

Good luck.

Well I'm big on loaner cars....from wat I've seen the dealer is more inclined to give out a loaner car when u buythe car from them . So getting the car from my local dealer for the price I got it for was a win win for me

Not true at least in DC area. I got a great deal on my car from a dealer 45 miles away. The local dealer has always given me a loaner the few times I've had to bring it in. Another dealer in the area specifically advertises they will give you a loaner car no matter where you bought it. Bottom line is they want your business.
