Not to piss off DJDUB again ( ;) ) but, gmcard screwed up and the dealership is now going to send me a check for $1k. So the car was $17,118 + ttl, or $18,163 out the door.

Moral of the story is, if you used a GMcard and were eligible for the roundup, make sure they gave you the full $5k off, not just the $4k as many, like I, had gotten.

:cheers

Snafu,
did they give you any details on the screw up? First i am told if you bought between 11/12 and 1/3 you get $5000, then I get told if you bought between 12/15 and 1/3.

My issue was with the fact that you got a mailing a few days before the 11/12 offer and didnt get anything regarding the 12/15 date.

Any details would be greatly appreciated, to the tune of 3000 appreciated.

Sorry DJ, this is a circus what GM is doing, and it is wrong.

There are four different GM cards. The offers vary depending on which one you carry.
Not true...that only affects what your "normal" redemption limit is. All of the new ones or the old ones that got converted, have a redemption limit of $1000.

As far as the roundup offer goes, it is selected at random. Those fortunate enough to be selected, were initially offerd a roundup (or top-off) from whatever amt. you have, to $2000. For this offer to apply, you had to have an open account with them prior to 11/12 AND be targeted for the promotion.

As of 12/15, they began offering a $3000 incentive on 3 vehicles, one of which is the GTO. Because this is a seperate offer, it is added to the $2000 top-off, totalling $5000. To add insult to injury, it seems that this incentive only applied to those originally targeted for the roundup offer (unfair, yes), as they are the only ones receiving mailings explicity stating this new incentive.

What happened in my case, and others, was that they thought the two offers were not combinable and thus took the max redemption limit of $1000 and added the incentive at $3000 to total $4000; when in fact, they may be used together. Because the deal was done, it would be a real PITA to redo the contract, not to mention I don't live anywhere near the dealership I bought from...so to make things equal, they'll just send me a check.

If you bought a few days before 12/15 and were targeted for the roundup offer, I'd fight GMCard tooth and nail to get the extra $3000...good luck though because they've got about 500 different departments in 25 different states and no two of them will tell you the same thing...that is if you're not transferred, lied to, or hung up on by a supervisor (yes, this is how I got treated). Good luck fellas, be prepared for war :shutme

Did you get something in the mail about the extra $3000? I didn't. If I did.....

If you did get something, I would appreciate getting a fax of it.

Well, I didn't get anything (as I was not selected) but my friend who's card I used, did. He just got it about 2 days ago. I don't know for sure if everyone got one, but I know many did.

It is more of just a reminder. If you called and they said you were eligible for the $3000, I'm sure your argument would be justifiable.

My friend is about 3 hours away and I'm leaving for Christmas in the morning so I don't have immediate access to the mailing, sorry, I'd fax if I could.

As for those that got over the $5000 (extra earnings over the initial $1k limit)...I don't know what happened...I didn't even bother to try and argue that one.

Dont worry. I have a call into someone at GM HQ that is trying to help me. He is a real gentleman. He was on the phone with the GM card people and they said I am entitled to 3000 and i should call the dealer to blah blah. he said he would call the dealer. he called me today to say he would be able to talk to the person he needs to on monday. lets see what happens.

i dont think there are too many people in my situation, and the loss of goodwill will surely outweigh the added goodwill they will get from a guy people come to with car buying questions by making it "right" whatever that means.

I never received the original $2,000 round up. I had an open account with a zero balance and had used my GM money back in March. I received a letter giving me back my GM money if I used it before 01-03. When I went to buy the car and My card was checked it showed me the extra $3000. I never received any letter about the $3,000 bonus.

Tom, Please keep us updated. I leased mine on Dec. 13 ! I am fighting with the dealer right now. :mad:
so that makes two of us. I picked mine up saturday, you picked yours up monday. Had we waited till wednesday. AARGH.

I called the GM card. For the 11/12 promotion they mailed the flyer 11/6. for the 12/15 promotion, they mailed the flyer after the 15th. It is just bad business, not just for you and me, but for everyone that paid close to list for the car.

Next time I lease a honda, at least I know I wont be in for any major suprises.

The dealership has no control over it...it's in gmcards hands. If gmcard says they'll fix it, it's up to them to call the dealership and get the deal straight.

Nothing in my pocket yet. Supposedly this happened to a few people. Try going up the chain of command. Maybe if enough people elevate it to GM brass, something will happen.
