(My bank knows this and was quick to offer me $100 on top of the 2.48% to finance or refi with them).

Would I be wasting my time trying to negotiate a competitive rate perhaps with a prepayment penalty clause (simple interest amortized) + rebate cash?
It is a rule, most customers I tell them to just refi with their bank after 3 payments are made. you get the $1,750 rebate from Ford then you get 2.48% on the remaining 56 months or whatever term you end up going with.

Hi there, I was wondering if you could let me know whether the price I am looking at for an SEL sedan 301A is a good one or not. I think it probably is but I didn't figure it hurt to ask. I have been quoted a price of invoice (20,787) - the current rebate (1,500) for an internet quote of 19,287. On top of the $1500, I think I can also qualify for the college program, as I graduated with my Master's in August, 2010, past the cutoff date of May, 2010. Do you see any problems with being able to use this rebate? Oh, I'm in ZIP 89166, if that helps. Thank you very, very much for your time.

how about incentives on focus and fiesta for july for 55337? also on that note, are there differences in 2012 vs 2013 incentives on the fiesta now that they are showing up on the dealer lots?

and one final question, there are many dealers in the area, each with different zip codes...can I assume that all the dealers in the area will carry the same incentives?

TIA.

Focus has $1,500 and your region will all be the same.

2012 Fiesta has $250 rebate
2013 Fiesta has $0 rebate

Might as well get the 13 for $250 I suppose. Note these incentives end Monday because Ford programs run month to month (if month ends on a Saturday it ends the following Monday unless it's a holiday).

Tuesday incentives will "change". More than likely stay the same.

Everything will change July 3rd so we will have to see what happens.
