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. Still, 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 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
From there, head to the GM landing page and click “Get Authorization Number.” When you visit the dealership, you will simply present this number to receive your discount.
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.
