Welcome. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but dealer rules list the GM Card earnings as being not available on the 1000 first 1000 EOP Solstice orders. When the EOP headquarters calls to verify your eligibility, ask them for clarification. I have cut & pasted the info for you.TR6 said:I received a response in writing (email) from Alison Fritzius, Customer Relationship Manager, GM Cardmember Services Redemption Center stating, "Once the Solstice becomes available you can use the total amount of Earnings toward the vehicle..." I am in the 1,000 and have $3525 in Earnings I plan to use on this car, when my "Solstice becomes available". Have been waiting 9 years for a decent GM car and hope that Alison can keep her promise.
Also I believe what they were saying by becoming available they're implying post EOP 1000 cars. Because technically those aren't "available" to normal buyers, they were a special contest version.TR6 said:I received a response in writing (email) from Alison Fritzius, Customer Relationship Manager, GM Cardmember Services Redemption Center stating, "Once the Solstice becomes available you can use the total amount of Earnings toward the vehicle..."

I saw the horse move, it is not dead.Breeze said:To clarify and take another swipe at that old dead horse, no GM dollars on EOP First 1000 cars. Use as many as you like on regular production vehicles. (for now)
Roadster1 said:DW and I ordered her Sly Solstice last Monday , we were able to order anything after the first 1000 on the "A" Plan discount. For us the first 1000 was not important, the xtra money off was . My company does the convertable top for this product so I am trying to see one for real. We are both so excited to get this car, we have never been this spontanious. Friday night she told me she saw it on the Apprentice, and fell in love with it....Saturday I suggested we quit talking and start doing....went to the dealership who also told me that "A" Plan was not available on this car....left there...Monday went to different dealership and bought it on "A" Plan...no questions asked.
Small Dealer said:"A" Plan is a Ford term for their employee and selected supplier purchase program. We don't use a term like that in GM. And I don't know the pricing break down for Ford, but in GM there are two differnt plans. The GM Employee Puchase Program (refered to as GMS) and the GM Supplier Purchase Program. The Supplier program cost is 4.5% greater then the Employee cost.
The GM Employee price savings is several hundred dollars short of $3,000 at a full equipped MSRP ($25,735). And the supplier savings would be about half of the $3,000 target at the same full equipped MSRP.
IMO gonna be tough at the startup with demand greater than supply to get that discount. Things will cool off next year.vextc05 said:every dealer ive been calling is telling me NO to the GM discount..im gettin kinda pissed now..i want the darn car and i will not pay at the listed price...for yrs ive been buying cars with my gm discount..will this change at all or does anyone know a dealership that are accepting the discount? please PM me
Actually it is both. GM can and does exclude certain models from time to time from eligibility in the purchae programs, such as GM Employee (GMS) and Supplier. (For example the Corvette Convertible and Z06 are currently unavailable) But if GM allows a model to be in the program , it is still up to the dealer to accept the program.pgreen29 said:just to be clear...
Is it up to the dealer if they choose to offer the gms discount?
Or is it a manufacturing decision on a new/hot model?
I ask because I am eligible for the discount, and I currently have an order with the local dealer who said that 'Pontiac' said no GMS on this model until further notice.
NOTE: I am NOT getting or refering to a first 1000, simply a regular order.
