Q. Are all Nissan and Infiniti vehicles eligible for the VPP discount?

A. Yes. Please remember, our Nissan and Infiniti dealers are valued business partners/internal clients, but not obligated to participate in the VPP program offers.
Q. What type of proof of employment do I need?
A. A copy of your company photo id, current paycheck, or business card is required to verify proof of employment with NNA.
Q. How much will the vehicle I'm interested in cost? Can VPP headquarters provide me with price quotes?
A. You can view invoice pricing and estimate the cost of a vehicle using the pricing calculator on the My Services/Vehicle Programs/Employee Vehicle Purchase Program page of the WIN Portal.
Final VPP vehicle pricing can be obtained only through a Nissan or Infiniti dealership. When you present your completed VPP claim form, you are entitled to see the invoice of the vehicle you are interested in buying.
Q. What if I want to purchase accessories? Will I get a discount?
A. Prices for accessories are negotiable between you and the dealership. There is no pre-negotiated VPP price for dealer-installed accessories.

A. For information on current vehicle incentives, click on the Current Customer Cash Offers at the top of the page or contact your Nissan or Infiniti dealer.
Q. Can the value of my trade-in be used to further reduce my purchase price?
A. No. The value of a trade-in can be used to pay for your vehicle purchase, but it cannot be used to determine your purchase price. Your trade-in must be handled as a transaction separate from the VPP price calculation.
Q. How do I finance a vehicle if I purchase or lease through the VPP?
A. Financing is handled the same way it is with non-VPP purchases. You can work with the dealership to obtain financing, or you can obtain financing on your own through a bank or credit union. If you choose to finance through the dealership, normal credit standards apply.
