Did you address the First 1000 EOP cars with her? Past posts indicated that First 1000 do not qualify.jschimp said:I spoke with Diana at the GM Card. She stated that you CAN use your GM Card earnings for the 2006 Solstice and any Pontiac vehicle. I had her confirm with her supervisor and he confirmed it. Woo Hoo! That's a $600 savings for me!
I will answer it here in this thread also, GM Card earnings are not eligible for use on the 1000 First 1000 Exclusive Retail Order Solstice cars.jschimp said:Yep. I'm getting one of the first 1,000 EOP's. She said there were NO exceptions. Any and all GM Card earnings can be used (any GM Card). I told her that I have an extended family card and she said no problem. (My Dad is a retiree from GM - so I'm eligible, but no GM Discount).
All GM Cards are available to use for the earnings though.
Keep your fingers crossed. The GM Card redemptions verify the VIN# of the vehicle to make sure it is eligible. You might get into a situation where the dealer starts the process and thinks it's a done deal, but can't get paid the redemption because the computer later identifies the vehicle as 1st 1000. That would make the dealer very pleasant to deal with.jschimp said:Darn - you're correct. I just called them again and raised a stink. He said that he saw the previous call on record with Diana and will escalate. He thinks that I may be able to use it, because when I called them they said no problem. They have that on record. I told them I would cancel my card if they didn't allow me to use it!
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my squeeky wheel will be oiled!
It is a mastercard. You can find out the details and apply online at www.gmcard.com.decormagic said:Is this a GM Master Card or Visa- or some other card? How do you get one? Any help is appreciated..............we could all use some help in saving on the car, while we are anxiously anticipating it..................... Thanks to all who respond.........
Another member thought he had same deal until he called again and the GM card people told him they didn't know about the first 1000 restriction so he was out of luck. See link (member TR6):POTFH said:
Right, the limit is $3500 on the old blue card (which I have). Note, though, that the only way to get to $3500 is to charge at least $10,000 per year for 7 consecutive years (i.e., the blue card has $500 maximum annual earnings).timmyzthree said:I call the GM Card Center, $1000. limit unless you have an old blue card, then you can use up to the cards' limit. ($3500. I think )
I wouldn't be so sure about that. The program rules clearly state that the points are not redeemable for the EOP. I can see the dealer working the deal with the points and then later contacting you to tell you that you owe additional money. Just make sure you work the deal when the card redemption center is operational and that the dealer speaks to a real person. My dealers have always used the automated system. I have redeemed $4,294.00 points on three vehicles since 1994. I currently have $500.00 in the bank. I love this program. Just charge the crap out of everything and be disciplined enough to pay it off at the end of the month.Aardvark said:As for you "first 1000" folks... If I were you and they wouldn't take my GM Card earnings, I'd raise hell. I received an insert hyping the Solstice in my GM Card bill several months back. Clearly, by advertising the Solstice inside GM Card mailings, they were implying that you could use your earnings on the card. If those mailings didn't include any restrictions regard the "first 1000," I'd say they're on the hook.
I agree with PubliusE. The GM Card restriction for the EOP First 1000 (as quoted by Small Dealer) was CLEARLY stated in the fourteen pages of small print that were the EOP rules. :lol: For those of you who did not read the fine print, :nopity:PubliusE said:The program rules clearly state that the points are not redeemable for the EOP.
