San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 01, 2011
In time for the holiday season, the Costco Auto Program today announced it has teamed up with General Motors to bring Costco members the first GM promotion through the program – the Chevrolet and GMC Limited-Time Offer. This latest promotion from the Costco Auto Program features a $500 Costco Cash Card as well as GM Preferred Pricing on select vehicles from not one but two of GM’s biggest nameplates – Chevrolet and GMC.
Breaking through the multitude of end-of-year auto-buying incentives, this offer is unlike any of the existing manufacturer sales events taking place in the market today. Beginning today and continuing through Jan. 3, 2012, Costco members will receive GM Preferred Pricing on the purchase or lease of any one of eight eligible new 2011 and 2012 Chevrolet and GMC trucks and SUVs at participating dealerships across the country, and a $500 Costco Cash Card for participating in the promotion, in addition to the national rebates and dealer incentives currently being offered. 
“The Costco Auto Program is known for providing Costco members with exceptional service and value on their vehicle purchases across the country, which makes this a fabulous way to showcase some of our most popular new crossovers, pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles,” said James Bell, head of consumer affairs for General Motors.
“The Costco Auto Program recognizes the value in working with companies like GM to provide its members with greater benefits on their vehicle purchase,” said Sandy Torrey, Assistant Vice President over Costco Services. "This exclusive promotion with GMC and Chevrolet is another great opportunity for the Costco Auto Program to provide significant savings to our members on quality vehicles from two well-respected brands."
The offer applies to all new 2011 and 2012 models, trim levels and power trains of the following vehicles for an extensive selection to choose from at participating dealerships.
Chevrolet: Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe and Traverse
GMC: Acadia, Sierra, Yukon and Yukon XL
Manufacturer sales events are not new to the Costco Auto Program, which has run successful promotions with other manufacturers in the past. These promotions are an added value to the everyday savings available exclusively to Costco members through the Costco Auto Program.
This exclusive offer is available to eligible Costco members as of Nov. 1, 2011 who first register to participate in the Chevrolet and GMC Limited-Time Offer by visiting http://www.costcoauto.com/gm or calling 877-746-7422, and then purchase and take delivery on one of the eligible trucks or SUVs prior to Jan. 3, 2012. In addition, all manufacturer rebates and dealer incentives publicly available at the time of purchase can also be applied. After making an eligible purchase, a $500 Costco Cash Card will be sent to Costco members who complete a redemption form and survey – extending their savings even further by allowing members to use the Costco Cash Card at their favorite Costco warehouse.
The Costco Auto Program provides members with everyday savings on vehicles at more than 2,400 participating dealerships around the country. To ensure superior customer service, qualified dealerships are trained and certified on the program’s process and procedures before being given the opportunity to work with Costco members. The program also provides Costco members with online tools to research vehicles they are interested in, locate the nearest participating dealer and make a purchase at a low, prearranged price.
