Picking it up Saturday!
I don't know if this was for everybody or I was selected as I have over $8K in earnings. I have the card that doesn't limit earnings, but does have the redemption limits. The offer let you do up to $3K on some cars and $5K on others. The $5Ks were mostly big SUVS/Trucks, some Caddilacs and every Pontiac (Even G8). Pretty much everything else GM was 3K except the Camero. Had to have that much on your account of course. I had a special code in the mailing. I also logged on to check my earnings where it listed it as well. It expires 6/30.

Yeah, we all get different "private offers" and yours was clearly to a select group that had so much in earnings but to then were limited by redemptions. It's funny, have always kept my old card just so I would not be limited to say $1500 or something on a car like the vibe. The economy being what it is sure played to your advantage.
Regarding your $15,200 basis, I was at $15,720 (included 150 doc fee) for the 2.4 and 5 speed auto with preferred, A/C and MP3 before my card rebates. Both of these were good deals.

We just got our 2.4L GT Liquid Platinum (Silver) Metallic with Automatic yesterday in Houston, Texas. The Preferred Package (remote entry, pwr doors/locks/window/cruise, etc.) on it is standard. A/C is standard, and Monsoon sound/leather wrap steeering wheel, etc. is standard. Options are, Auto 5 speed transmission, Power Sunroof, and Smokers Package. Sticker Price shows $21,680. Dealer quoted me invoice of $19,200. We received the following rebates: $2,000 Loyalty cash, $500 cash rebate (in lieu of 0% APR), $500 dealer cash for a price of $16,200. We have $3,000 in GM Card topped off rebates for a price of $13,200. Drive out price including Tax Title, License, Doc. Fee, Dealer Prep etc. was $14,250. I thought this was a pretty good price for a GT.

I'm considering to get a similar one but MSRP for GT with auto, sunroof, and smoker package is $23295 and invoice is $21933. How did you get $19200 before $3000 rebate? Please replay as I need to make an offer very soon. Thank!

The GT I purchased was assembled last year (2008) because it had 09 (month) inspection sticker. That means it may have been assembled around June-July 2008. Many of the features, for example the power package, sound package, A/C etc. were all standard features on this car. On the latest ones, all these features are options and costs additional money. The destination charge was $585, and now it is $635. That may be the difference why the MSRP and the invoice prices were lower on the car I purchased than the newer cars. Also, this car was driven 150 miles from another dealership as an exchange for a different color.

The GT I'm considering is also made last year and everything standard, just added Auto, Sunroof and about $300 other options, so it is very similar to yours. It does have a lower MSRP than the current one ($22680 instead of $23680), but that is still $1800 higher than your. Seems that they had some mid-year price increase. Will try to find out from GM and see if I can get a similar offer like yours.
