2019 Audi e-tron: October 2020 Status

Hackrs! The Costco incentive is gone unless you obtained a code by Sept 30th.


Can anyone publish or say where we can find the 167 2019 etrons available? I’ll start the phone calls, but I am in Massachusetts (so I know it’s that much rarer of a unicorn here).

Audi Natick has the only one in MA



My dealership in CA has 3 prestiges in stock. And it qualifies for 12k lease cash. What kind of discount pre-incentives should I be aiming for? And is 24 month the best lease term?

With the virtually non-existent inventory- others have stated that it’s a challenge to get anything more than 10% Costco- if you can find one.

Good luck.

Curious. Don’t have Costco. How much discount to expect?

It’s a challenge to get the dealers to give you 10% costco and the full marketing allowance.

Interesting …

Shouldn’t matter. My dealer never asked about costco.

It it weren’t a challenge we would not be calling it a hack. We would call it a sale.


I was motivated by your “challenge” and reached out even though I didn’t need another vehicle now.

I was determined to have you make another donation, but man I underestimated the difficulty.

Then you should forget the etron. Dealers don’t want to give 2% out of their own pockets apparently, seeing as all the “Costco plus X%” deals have dried up.

Why even give 3% to a non-Costco member when they can hold out for a Costco member (not exactly rare) and not give anything


They have a whole month to unload a few etrons with a program that doesn’t require loyalty. Opens up a new buyer pool.

What kind of rational person would co-sign for a boyfriend or girlfriend?


Just remember that Costco buyers had to have already gotten the code, much smaller pool than “all Costco members”

No one but you’re overestimating the percentage of people that are actually rational.

Good point.

And while technically true, I still have to wonder how many salespeople are aware of this technicality. They may well perceive their target market as “any Costco member.”

I am confused… my dealer asked if i had “Costco” i said Yes. and he gave the discount… didn’t ask for any code or costco card or anything… how does this costco discount work anyways then ??

I picked up the etron with all the discounts already.

honestly thinking it was all a marketing gimmick - creating a sense of urgency among us buyers to buy the car at that discount . .meanwhile the dealer is the one who really controls the discounts to give without having to show Audi the proof of costco or loyalty anything…

so i still have the code in my email never used - if anyone wants - its yours… message me… thanks

All of my eTron unicorns required Costco Auto authorization code. The last one- I didn’t sign up for a 2nd code, but my sales person asked for my Costco number and he went thru a back channel to sign up for it on my behalf.

Just speculating, but I think it’s required if the dealership gives you additional discount up to 2% that Costco Auto will send to them.

If you get 10% off MSRP without any additional discount, not sure if there’s any dealer benefit that necessitate the authorization code.

When did you get you car ?
