General Motors offers eligible military members a military discount program for GM vehicles. The GM military discount program allows eligible military members to purchase vehicles at prices lower than MSRP. It’s important to note that GM dealers are not required to participate in the GM military discount program, but in this economic environment, my guess is that most dealers will be willing to work with you and offer discounts for your military service.
General Motors (GM) Military Discount Program
GM Vehicles eligible for GM Military Discount
GM dealers are working hard to clear inventory from their lots. As a result, most 2010 and 2011 GM cars, SUVs, crossovers and light-duty trucks are eligible for the GM Military Discount Program except the Chevrolet Volt and all Cadillacs.
GM Military Discount Eligibility
People eligible for the GM Military Discount include active duty members and Reserves of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, National Guard, and Coast Guard.

How good is the GM military discount program?
I ran a few vehicles through the military discount price list to compare the regular MSRP to the military price. There were a few deals better than others. I don’t think it’s a bad idea to try and get additional discounts with this program – but right now you should be able to do much better than the listed prices from their price list. Many dealerships are hurting to move inventory and are willing to make deals.
Save more money with USAA, AutoCircle, and GM
You can save even more money if you are a USAA member. GM and USAA have teamed to offer an additional $750 discount (this offer is subject to change, but it is worth investigating!). In addition, you can try USAA’s new car buying service, USAA Auto Circle. Auto Circle is an iPhone app that is basically a one stop shop for your car buying needs. You can research the best value in cars, find a no hassle “buy it now” price, and even insure your car right from your iPhone. Android and Blackberry apps are currently in work.
