Amex Auto Purchasing Program
*Between 7/1/13 and 9/30/13, the average estimated savings off MSRP presented by TrueCar Certified Dealers to users of the American Express Auto Purchasing Program, based on users who configured virtual vehicles and subsequently purchased a new vehicle of the same make and model listed on the certificate from Certified Dealers, was $3,146, including applicable vehicle specific manufacturer incentives. Your actual savings may vary based on multiple factors including the vehicle you select, region, dealer, and applicable vehicle specific manufacturer incentives which are subject to change. The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") is determined by the manufacturer, and may not reflect the price at which vehicles are generally sold in the dealer's trade area as not all vehicles are sold at MSRP.
**Upfront dealer pricing information and Guaranteed Savings not available in all states. In these states, a Target Price is shown, which is a market-based example of what you can reasonably expect to pay for your vehicle as configured. Your configured vehicle may not be available or in-stock at the Certified Dealer. With Guaranteed Savings, the selected TrueCar Certified Dealer guarantees that you will receive at least a certain, stated minimum savings amount off the base Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP"), including any vehicle-specific manufacturer incentives that may be currently available. Guaranteed Savings only applies to new, in-stock vehicles at the selected TrueCar Certified Dealers. Incentives subject to certain terms, conditions and restrictions; see your TrueCar Certified Dealer for details.
Neither TrueCar nor American Express brokers, sells or leases motor vehicles. Each Certified Dealer sets its own pricing, and your actual purchase price is negotiated between you and the Certified Dealer. The Certified Dealer will confirm actual vehicle availability from in-stock inventory, including options and color choices.
American Express does not make any guarantees with respect to vehicle purchase. Fulfillment of this offer is the sole responsibility of the participating American Express merchant. Applicable for full car purchases, credit limitations apply

s airline of choice (e.g. wireless internet and fees incurred with airline alliance partners) do not qualify for statement credits.

Airline tickets, upgrades, mileage points purchases, mileage points transfer fees, gift cards, duty free purchases, and award tickets are not deemed to be incidental fees. The airline must submit the charge under the appropriate merchant code, industry code, or required service or product identifier for the charge to be recognized as an incidental air travel fee. Please allow 2-4 weeks after the qualifying incidental air travel fee is charged to your Card Account for statement credit(s) to be posted to the Account. We rely on airlines to submit the correct information on airline transactions, so please call the number on the back of the Card if statement credits have not posted after 4 weeks from the date of purchase. Card Members remain responsible for timely payment of all charges. To be eligible for this benefit, Card Account(s) must be active and not in default at the time of statement credit fulfillment. If a charge for any incidental air travel fee is included in a Pay Over Time feature balance on your Card Account (for example, Sign & Travel), the statement credit associated with that charge may not be applied to that Pay Over Time feature balance.
