Like many other car manufacturers, 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, most dealers are willing to work with you and offer discounts for your military service.

General Motors (GM) Military Discount Program

Eligible GM Vehicles

GM dealers are working hard to clear inventory from their lots. As a result, most 2020 and 2021 GM (Chevy, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac) cars, SUVs, crossovers, and light-duty trucks are eligible for discounts. Currently, these range from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand. A complete list can be found on their website’s FAQ page.


People eligible for the GM Military Discount include:

  • Active duty members,
  • National Guard & Reserve members,
  • Retirees of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, National Guard, and Coast Guard.
  • Veterans are also eligible if they are within 3 years of their discharge date.

Some dealerships may allow family members to participate in this offer if the servicemember or veteran is present at the time of purchase.

How to Get Your Military Discount from GM

Visit and create an account (more about how works).

Does GM Offer Military a Good Deal?

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. Some dealerships are hurting to move inventory and are willing to make deals.

Now that you know what GM has to offer be sure to do your homework before stepping foot into a dealership with these 10 Car Buying Tips.

  1. John Fiorini says

    I recently bought my second GMC Sierra 2021 at Richard K in Anderson SC, and after requesting the Military discount of $500. I was refused. One of the requirements is Retired Veteran and Disabled Veteran with 100% service connected disability , of which I am and was awarded The service connected Rating of 100% disabled through the VA! Why was I refused, possibly confusion at the dealership!

  2. Rich says

    Nobody but an idiot pays MSRP on a new car/truck purchase.
    What I find troubling is the fact that disabled veterans don’t qualify for military discounts. I have been on kidney dialysis due to my service in Iraq for 9 years and I was refused a military discount.

  3. KIDCURRY56 says

    An e-2 with no credit history is actually lucky to get 19% most dealers would want half the money down and charge 22-24.95%
    interest. You could have co/signed for him to get better rate, and most dealers don’t participate in the GM military pricing, but will do their best to get as close as possible for our service
    Members. This is true at least of the Hawaii dealers, I have found JN CHEVY/MAZDA to be the best, they explained right up front why the couldn’t participate and that they would be as close as possible
