If I apply and get approved today can I get a immediate discount or something? Or is it a point system?
You earn cash back that you can apply towards the purchase of a GM vehicle. The amount you can earn varies from 1% to 5% of purchases and there are some restrictions. Since I believe you said your father is or was a GM employee you could apply for the GM Extended Family card which has unlimited earnings and redemptions, the only drawback is that it is only 1% on purchases. (The only other card that has unlimited redemptions is the GM Business card or the grandfathered GM card which I have) New applicants to the GM card or the GM Flexible Earnings Card have redemption limits, for the Camaro its $1500. These also stack with your GM Employee discounts and other offers available like the USAA discount or any cash back offers.

I have also heard that from time to time they will give you a “Top Off” offer that will for a limited time bump your earnings up to $2000 and sometimes $3000 even though you didn’t spend enough to be eligible for them. (something similar to the private offer through the Chevrolet website) What I hear many people will do is get the card and earn a small amount of points and wait for one of the Top Off offers and then buy a car. The drawback to that is you have to wait for the Top Off offer. I didn’t know about the Top Off offers so I have been doing it the hard way for the past few years but the good news is that I have over $3k saved up, and I have the original GM card and I can apply the entire amount to my purchase in the next month or so.

I am dying to see all of your guys cars though I want to get your opinion on the Recaro’s before I order so tell them to hurry up.

No, just bayed so far

And thx for the info. It sounds like I'm too late to get the credit card for money off my 2014 purchase. But I might grab one afterwards just incase I'm thinking about trading in or getting another one once its paid off. Up to an extra 3K off a new car sounds great!

that kinda sucks though if it tops out at $1500 and is 1% cash back on purchases... You can get a specialized card that gives say 5% cash back on gas or 3-6% on purchases like groceries from AMEX cards. Money is money it doesn't matter where it gets applied. IF the GM card had better cash back opportunities it would be a better deal but your money is better applied/spent on another credit card that gives better cash back percentages.

There are about 4 different GM cards available and each has their plusses and minuses. (I researched the hell out of this while getting ready to buy a 2014) The one that is available to employees does have 1% towards a new car but the redemption is unlimited so they can go well above the standard redemption allowance of $1,500 for the Camaro, it just accrues slower. I have the grandfathered original GM card I get 5% back but I have a max of $500 per year that I can earn and everything beyond 7 years falls off. The new card that has replaced it can earn an unlimited amount per year at 5% but is subjected to the redemption allowances. There is also the GM Business card which is probably the best of the bunch unlimited accruals and up to 5% back on certain categories and the Flexible Earnings card which you can earn 3% towards a vehicle or 1% towards cash back.

I think the best use of it is to get one and put a small amount on it so that you have $100-200 worth of credits and then wait for one of the “Top Off” offers that they seem to be throwing around quite often. What these do is max out your earnings for a short time and even though you have only earned a small amount. All of a sudden have $1000-3000 worth of credit towards a car but you have to use it before a certain date. It’s a lot like the private offer that you have to use before the end of the month to get people to go in and buy a car. I think it’s definitely worth it even if just to take advantage of the Top Off offers. I hope this information can help someone out in the future, I just wish they would let you use it at the parts department though…

I am hoping they get these on their way to you guys soon I am dying to see what you all think of the new Recaro’s

Just bought some more goodies for the 1LE. Faded SLP gill inserts and those strips that go on the front fenders.
Also got 2 1LE shirts and the hat from the Camaro store.
Heard some Camaros are being shipped now? AWESOME!!

I seen that too, hope all of ours shipped. The tracking site has had mine 'Shipped/en route' all week but I dont trust that all that much.

Also I noticed under interior on the tracking site mine says:
  • RADIO AM/FM STEREO, SINGLE CD, MP3 (AUX IN), USB, GMNA
  • Recaro performance seats
I thought they didnt have a CD player anymore?

Holy crap dude! That's awesome. Whenever I saw Becky's thread I was surprised the 2014s were coming in so soon. Hope you get your day off and that you can pick up your car the same day that it comes in.
