In reading the site and threads on here, I thought it was more like the "holiday cash", where I take my negotiated price and then apply some sort of "discount" to bring it even lower.

Is my understanding correct?
No no no.

The USAA discount ($1000 if you're using BMW FS) comes off the 'sale price of the car'. Meaning after you do your negotiating, they knock off another $1K. They list that as the 'sale price of car' on the bill of sale, then take off another $1750 (listed as "rebate") for Holiday Cash + Loyalty.
