Just realized the second offer that I received has been modified ............" Can be transferred to other individuals in household. Not compatible with other offers. Bring Authorization Number and Pin to your Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac dealer and take delivery by August 31, 2017". Interestingly they no longer mention negotiating your best price. Also interested in their definition of "other offers", must be anything below MSRP, what a joke.
I appreciate your input however this isn't my first rodeo. While I don't recall how they were titled or the specific amounts I have previously received similar notifications in 2003, 2005 and 2011. I am able to recall the years as the offers were significant to the point that I purchased a new truck in each of those years. Granted GM was struggling in 03 & 05 and I'm not sure about 11 but deals were agreed upon and the additional money from GM was deducted without issue. Again I don't have the figures but between the trade value of the 03 and the discounts and incentives offered on the 05 it would have been foolish on my part not to make that deal. The first two trucks were purchased from a small family owned dealership that was forced to close around 2008 or 2009 when GM decided to downsize.
The date I was at the dealer the only incentive advertised for the double cab was 0% for 60 months. There were others for different vehicles but I didn't pay much attention as I was interested only in the double cab.
" "Negotiate your best price with the dealer and top it with this offer. Can be transferred to other individuals in household. Bring Authorization Number and PIN to your Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac dealer and take delivery by August 31, 2017."
Received a personalized "Exclusive Private Offer" notice with an authorization number & pin from GM last month. It states in part " Negotiate your best price with the dealer and top it with this offer" which amounts to $4000 on a 2017 Silverado. Wasn't really in the market but the offer enticed me into the dealership where I decided to purchase a truck. Negotiated a deal including trade in value and received the total vehicle cost at which time I presented the salesman with the private offer flyer. The salesman stated that I couldn't use the private offer in conjunction with the price we had negotiated, either do the deal as is or use the offer but not stacked together. I declined the sale and today contacted GM customer service where I lodged a complaint. The representative stated that she has received numerous complaints regarding the flyer and would log my information and forward a report up the ladder. I'm going to wait a few days to see if I receive a reply from GM but it appears to me to be a bait & switch tactic and I am therefore considering filing a complaint with the state AG office.
