Costco's annual GM Holiday promotion is now underway and runs through January 2, 2019. Available discounts include GM Supplier Pricing plus most currently available GM incentives, and a Costco Cash Card after purchasing or leasing an eligible model and completing a Costco Auto Program survey.

 

Model year 2019 vehicles – Costco members who purchase or lease new 2019 Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac models receive:
● GM Supplier Pricing
● A Costco Cash Card after completing a Costco Auto Program survey:
o $700 for Executive Members
o $300 for Gold Star and Business Members
● Plus, this limited-time special can be combined with compatible GM incentives for which the
member qualifies

 

Model year 2018 vehicles – Costco members who purchase or lease new 2018 Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac models receive an exclusive $500 Costco Member-Only Incentive that can be combined with compatible GM incentives for which the member qualifies. 

 

“For the last several years of the Holiday Sales Event, Costco Auto Program worked with General Motors to deliver special pricing for Costco members,” said Mark DerGarabedian, Costco services director. “This latest event is no exception. We are excited at the opportunity this brings for Costco members.”

anyone ever do this?  The discounting doesn't seem crazy on their website.  Is this on top of or in lieu of other discounting and incentives?

I did look into this a few weeks back.  If you are not a Costco member, you would have had to become one by Oct 1st, 2018 to be eligible for the promotion.

I used COSTCO for my Daughter's Honda.   We got the car for a reasonable price and it was hassle free, which is what she wanted.  Any other Manufacture incentives would be available in reducing the COSTO's pre-negotiated price.  However, if you have time to shop around and haggle on price you can probably do a little better than COSTO, especially if a Trade-in is part of the negotiation.

Indeed. They are just another buying service. You can do better on your own if so inclined.

FYI - you don't have to go thru Costco to to use the promotion.

 

I didn't know about the promotion when I bought my truck but the dealer did. They took my card and entered the info for me.

The next day I received and email with the authorization number and a link to the survey. 4 weeks later I received the cash card.

Just purchased a new 2018 silverado 1500 last week and asked the dealer about this. They took a copy of my costco card, I signed some costco form and got the $500 "discount" added to my deal.

There maybe away around membership by Oct1. Today I called Costco Automotive section and explained my new 18 GMC Serria is on the way to dealership. Told them I heard about this promotion and could I join today and get discount. I was told needed to be member by Oct 1 . Then they asked are any of my relatives are members ? I told her I would have to check. She said if one is to call her back with membership number. Found out my two sister in laws are members so I'm calling her back tomorrow. Also called dealer to make sure I can use with GMS pricing. I will update how things work out. Dave

Appreciate your input.  Christ if I knew about the Costco thing I would have joined ahead of time just for the membership fee.  I haven't been a member for several years but would have joined again had I known this.  It was only $50 or so last time I was a member.

I think is around 60 - 65 dollars , Still well worth the dollars and time.  Before Costco asked about relatives she did ask if I was ever a member. I wasn't . There most likely a grand fathers clause were you might qualify . I was never a member so I didn't question any further. I also didn't know anything about this promotion until reading here on this forum. Thankyou to Gorehamj for posting !

Update I was able to use my sister in laws Costco membership number to get 500.00  discount on my 18 GMC Serria Crew Cab purchase. Costco took my info and the membership number and gave me a authorization number and pin number to give to dealership.

I called Costco Auto today too after what you mentioned last night.  I have a membership # a couple years out of date but will qualify if I renew.  I signed up for promotion and received the certificate with authorization and pin for dealer.  I haven't even renewed yet, so don't know if they will catch that, but it's only $60, so I likely will anyway.  My guess is the certificate I have right now will pass at the dealer for the extra $500 off an 18.

 

Thanks

I was told to just take my authorization number and pin number to dealership at time of purchase . Glad it worked out for you. I think phone call was well worth the time. Enjoy that new vehicle !

I did this when I bought my 2017. After I got the price from the dealer that participated in the Costco auto program, I called other dealers and see if they could beat it and none could. Was surprised at that.

      Is there a forum on here for "For Sale" items?
       
      If not, is it taboo to post for sale items?

      Costco's auto sales program is growing at a double-digit rate, while most traditional car dealerships are seeing growth of under 1% over the past year. The largest Limited-Time Special held last year was the Holiday Sales Event with General Motors yielding strong results with a 22 percent increase above 2017 sales. SUV are the top-performing segment overall for both the everyday program and the Holiday Sales Event with GM. During the Costco Holiday Sales Event, SUVs represented 47 percent of unit sales, followed by trucks at 37 percent. 
       
      Rick Borg, Costco's Executive Vice President, Program Operations, told us, "GM truck shoppers choose Costco Auto Program due to the no-hassle savings they receive from their Costco member price. When combined with factory incentives they qualify to receive, they get an even greater value." He went on to add that Costco's streamlined process helps make buying easy. He said, "Once a member submits a vehicle request at CostcoAuto.com, or through our call center, we connect them to dedicated, trained and certified contacts at the Approved Dealership who deliver exceptional service. To help Costco members buy and save with confidence, our Costco Auto Program Member Advocates provide support before, during and after their purchase."
       
      Costco doesn't just sell GM trucks during the holidays. If you need a truck now check out the deals at Costco's truck page . If you bought your GM truck from Costco, tell other members about the experience in the comments below.
