Find Out If You Are Eligible For The X Plan Discount
Getting a new car can be a lot of fun but many buyers dread the confusing process of arriving at a fair price. With so much information about pricing on the internet, from so many different sources, it can be overwhelming to try to understand what is a fair price and what is not. Fortunately, for employees of select partners of Ford Motor Company, this process is made simple through the Ford X-Planpartner recognition program. At Gator Ford, we often find that employees of these select partner companies are not aware of the pricing benefits that they are entitled to based on their employment with a Ford Motor Company Partner. Throughout this article, we will briefly explore X-Plan pricing, eligibility and benefits.
What is Ford X-Plan?
X-Plan is preferred (invitation only) new vehicle pricing that is offered to select employees of preferred business partners of Ford Motor Company. X-Plan pricing is valid towards the purchase or lease of most new Ford vehicles.
Who qualifies for Ford X-Plan?
Generally, employees (full time, part-time and contract), spouses and retirees of eligible Partner companies (suppliers, fleets, etc.) and members of specific organizations or groups may qualify for X-Plan. Residents of the same household as qualified employee are also eligible with proper proof of residency. Participation in this program is by invitation only as determined by Ford Motor Company. Not all suppliers, fleets, etc. are eligible. If you are unsure of whether you qualify or not, read on.
What companies get X Plan pricing?
Currently, there are nearly 3,400 partner companies that qualify for employee X-Plan pricing. This list is constantly changing based on new and dissolved relationships between Ford Motor Company and their partners. Because of the changing nature of these relationships, there is no central list that you can access to check your eligibility, so it is best to contact your dealer to have them check for you. At Gator Ford, we often assist employees of the following companies (currently or previously eligible) with X-Plan pricing: Bose, Raytheon, IBM, Cisco, Monster.com, EMC, Boston Scientific, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), State Street Financial, Fresenius Medical, Liberty Mutual, Saint Gobain, The Math Works and many other large local employers. If you aren't sure if your company qualifies, your HR benefits coordinator may also have some information on this program.
