SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TrueCar, Inc. (NASDAQ: TRUE), the negotiation-free car buying and selling platform, and the National Education Association (NEA) have partnered to launch an auto buying program designed to provide savings for NEA members and educators. Through the NEA® Auto Buying Program, the NEA's three million members will gain access to upfront pricing information and guaranteed savings off the manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) when purchasing a new or used car in most states.
"The NEA's mission is to advance the cause of public education, and TrueCar is proud to support such an important organization and valued partner," said Scott Painter, founder and CEO of TrueCar. "Buying a car is one of the largest purchases in a person's lifetime, and we want to ensure that NEA members are as educated as possible and understand the benefits of the NEA Auto Buying Program to help save time and money on their auto purchases."
TrueCar unveiled the NEA Auto Buying Program at this year's NEA EXPO, one of the largest education conventions in America, where TrueCar representatives provided live, one-on-one demonstrations and delivered a presentation to interested NEA members with an overview of the program and the unique benefits and savings that it provides.
"It was exciting to witness NEA members' enthusiasm about the NEA Auto Buying Program at the EXPO," commented Felicia Santana, Director of Partner Relations for NEA Member Benefits (NEA MB). "The partnership with TrueCar and the opportunity to help members realize significant savings on such an important asset are in perfect alignment with NEA MB's strategic goals."
