I've seen several people here saying that they got more than 1k off by using GM card points.
I thought you could only do up to 1k on the Vibe.
What am I missing?

I believe that it depends on what version of the GM card you have. Old version $2k, even more depending on what you bought with the card (some points can/could accrue without regard to the $2k limit). New version I believe is $1k. We have the old version of the card, Got something in the neighborhood of $2025 additional off the vibe using the GM points.

Hmmm. When I look at the "manage your points" it says 1000.
But I have had the card for at least 9 years, so I would think I have the old one.
Maybe a call is order..
I hate being on hold (who doesn't) so if anyone knows of a way to tell if you are an "old" or a "new" card I would love to hear it.
Thanks for the help.
If I could take off $2000, I might just take the plunge.

Just bought 2009 Vibe 1.8L (1SA?) with auto, power/AC options and cargo organizer. $15139, plus TT L. Got about 30 mpg for 60% city 40% highway drive.

I am in MN. I did not take 0%. I saw the list price from my dealer is $1000 more this month. BTW I notice "Toyota" on the side of engine!
#336 of 399 Great deal on 2007 Vibe
May 14, 2009 (3:38 pm)
I got a 2007 with 5000 miles for $12,500. It does not have keyless entry, power windows, but it does have a moonroof. I am really happy with this car.
I imagine that Pontiacs should get cheaper, what with the brand disappearing.
#337 of 399 2009 Vibe GT
May 27, 2009 (12:09 pm)
I got a 2009 2.4 4cyl Vibe GT automatic to drive overnight. It has the Preferred Package (remote entry, pwr doors/locks/window/cruise, etc.) and the Sun and Sound Package (sunroof/monsoon sound/leather wrap steeering wheel, etc.) and the other standard GT features. Dealer quoted me invoice of $21,084.18 minus the current $1,500 cash back ($19,584 plus TTL) (or 0% for 72 months APR) instead of the list price of $22, 165.
We tried to load it up with things we would normally take in our current 1995 Lumina APV for a week at the beach that we go on yearly, but after just four beach chairs and four luggage with 4 people in it, it was already full. The thing is, we only need the space ONE week a year or a couple at the most. The rest of the time, I would love the small size and good mileage of this compared to a minivan or SUV. Maybe luggage racks and a hitch mounted bike rack would help, but I don't know if even the 2.4 4 cyl. could handle that and 4 passengers, especially going back up the mountain to NC.
I could maybe live with the decreased room if I was paying only $15K or so, but I doubt even this disappearing brand at the end of the month would go for that little and for a few grand over $20K, I could get a much roomier vehicle with more features, like a back up camera to make up for the tiny window and huge blind spots this car seems to have.
#338 of 399 Prices dropping?
Jun 03, 2009 (9:42 am)
Does anyone have any idea or resource recomendation that can estimate how much prices will drop due to bankruptcy and a badge that is on death row? I'd like to get a great deal since my GM card is offering me the use of all my card points, currently $4700. You would think we could get an "owners" discount since we collectively sent them billions only months ago.

Personally, because it's you I think they should give you the car for gratis. After all, considering that you must have personally paid bundles in taxes to Uncle Sam, somebody owes you something. After you're finished wasting time here why don't you try to get a free house. I understand the banks own plenty of them, You can explain to them how maybe because you have a checking account or maybe even a bank account and how YOU personally as a taxpayer have bailed them out with all those taxes that YOU alone have paid, that maybe you should get some sort of preferential treatment.
