Cars are a commodity. Shop several dealers and play them against each other. They will deal.Barry said:I plan to trade for a new LTZ in the fall when the new ones come out and when I have the $$. How much realistically can I expect to get off MSRP? My last 3 purchases were Saturns so I have not played the "games" for a long time.
I am sure you understand, but I do not follow your math. How did $1000 of earnings turn into $300.2011LT2 said:On my stpuid GM flexible earnings card they limited the redemption value to only $1000 towards an Equinox, $2000 for a Corvette I think. Then they had a Bonus earnings offer of $1000 on Equinox level vehicles, so it brought me to $2000. I actually already had $2000 in potential earnings, but they limited my use of them to $1000. I cash5ed out the rest at a rate of 1% and canceled the card after my purchase. It was 3% earnings towards a new GM vehicle or 1% cash back, so I traded $1000 of value of another GM vehilce for a $300 check, because they also only mail multiples of $100s. Any way to get you, they will.
I can see that. I had $2000 worth of "earnings towards a GM vehicle" which was 3% of my purchases. However GM only allows you to redeem up to $1000 of those earnings towards an Equinox or other cars under $30k basically. So I used a $1000 towards my Equinox and had $1000 left of "earnings towards a GM vehicle". However, if you dont use it towards a new GM vehicle its only worth 1% for "cash back". So the $1000 at 3% is only $333 at 1%, and since they only allow multiples of 100 I got a $300 check.Terrain2011 said:I am sure you understand, but I do not follow your math.

Also, I like my card as it has given much back to me.
I seem to recall that they can be transferred to a relative outside the household also with the old card. I offered them to my daughter, but GM products weren't safe enough for her - she bought a Volvo. :banghead:SlayerX11 said:Can the old GMT Card points be transfered to someone else in the same household? I know I can transfer them with the newGM Card as long as the receiving end lives in the same household and doesn't have a gmt card.
