The General Motors Educator Discount Program (The Program) provides eligible Participants (Participant) with the opportunity to purchase/lease new or unused vehicles at The Program price at a participating dealer.
By purchasing a vehicle through The Program, the Participant acknowledges these Rules and Guidelines and agrees to abide by them.
It is the responsibility of the Participant to know the rules of The Program as set forth in this document and to make them known to their sponsored purchasers. Violations of these rules by the Participant may result in sanctions against the Participant.
The Program may be withdrawn at any time, and its terms are subject to change from time to time by General Motors (GM). Final decisions in all matters relating to the interpretation of any rule or phrase of this activity rest solely with General Motors.
Please note that employees of state or municipal governments may be subject to restrictions that limit their ability to accept this offer. Accordingly, this offer is void unless permitted by state and municipal laws, regulations, rules, ordinances, policies, codes of conduct, and other directives or standards regarding ethics and gift acceptance by state and municipal employees. By accepting this offer, you verify that it complies with all restrictions regarding ethics and gift acceptance that apply to you.
A. Participant Eligibility
This offer is only available to:
Current employees of a public school,
private school, university or college.
B. Sponsored Purchasers
Eligible Participants are able to sponsor their spouse or same-sex domestic partner (SSDP), where applicable, and dependent children and stepchildren, provided the children are either under 21 years of age or full-time students under 25 years of age on the date of purchase. (Note: Eligible SSDPs are treated the same as spouses and, therefore, their dependent children and stepchildren are also included.)
General Motors will conduct periodic audits to ensure the integrity of The Program. Participants may be asked to furnish documentation supporting their eligibility with these rules. Documentation of Program eligibility may include:
1. A current paystub
2. School ID badge
Participants may be asked to furnish documentation supporting the eligibility of sponsored purchasers in compliance with these rules. Documents requested may include, but are not limited to, copies of marriage licenses, birth certificates,
registration/title information, etc. General Motors reserves the right to audit dealership records and disqualify any sales that do not meet The Program guidelines. Any money improperly paid to any party based upon the dealers’ or Participants’ representation shall be charged back accordingly.
Limitation on Number of Vehicles
Participants may purchase or lease a cumulative total of two (2) vehicles under The Program.
Each authorization number is good for six months toward the purchase or lease of an eligible, new or unused Chevrolet, Buick or GMC vehicle at The Program price at a participating dealer. To see a list of eligible vehicles, visit gmeducatordiscount.com and select Vehicle Eligibility on the home page. Some models may have limited availability. Eligibility of GM vehicles may change at any time without notice.
Participants or sponsored purchasers must be eligible to participate throughout the entire purchase process, i.e., on the date the process is started through the date of the vehicle delivery.
If purchasing or leasing a vehicle under The Program with cash or through a loan, ownership must be retained for at least six (6) months from the date of delivery of the vehicle.
GM reserves the right to modify the retention rules at any time. Retention periods for some vehicles may be different than the retention period referenced in previous versions of the Rules and Guidelines.
A vehicle purchased/leased under The Program must be used for the personal, noncommercial use/transportation of the Participant and/or sponsored purchaser. It is prohibited under The
Program to purchase/lease and register/ title a vehicle and then surrender the vehicle for part or all of the required
retention period to any other person. In addition, it is prohibited under The
Program to purchase/lease a vehicle for commercial use. Vehicles purchased under The Program must be registered, licensed, titled, insured and owned by the Participant and/or sponsored purchaser. Vehicles may be jointly registered,
licensed, titled, insured and/or owned in the Participant’s name and the name of his or her spouse. Vehicles may also be
titled in the name of a living trust that bears the name of the participant.
Co-titling a vehicle with a spouse, or a non-eligible person required for financing, is allowed.
Participants shall not solicit or accept money or discounts from dealers, other persons or other business entities, except GM-sponsored incentives, in connection with the sale of vehicles under The Program. At no time should a Participant accept payment or other consideration from dealers for referrals. Participants may accept inducements of nominal value, up to $50, provided the inducements are offered to the general public and are noncash in nature, such as a free first oil change. This prohibition does not apply to a fuel fill if provided by the dealer at the time of delivery.
Included in required paperwork at the dealership is the GM Vehicle Purchase Customer-Dealer Agreement and Pricing
Sheet. This should be reviewed and, once complete, signed by the purchaser. DO NOT SIGN the agreement if it is blank or The Program price from the invoice is not shown. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your purchase or lease, clarify them with your pareticipating dealer BEFORE closing the transaction. The GM Vehicle Purchase CustomerDealer Agreement and Pricing Sheet must be signed prior to the completion of the deal.
Dealers may charge a documentation fee up to the amount allowable by state law. Each dealer is responsible for complying with applicable laws and regulations.
If the dealer you visit is not willing to sell you a vehicle through The Program, you may visit another GM Dealer. Dealer participation is voluntary.
Dealers are not required to participate in the GM Educator Discount Program. To determine a dealer’s willingness to sell
vehicles under The Program, you must speak with the dealer directly.
During the initial dealer inventory buildup when new models are introduced, and from time to time thereafter, it may be
necessary for GM to restrict purchase under The Program on certain models. Please go to gmeducatordiscount.com to see a list of eligible vehicles.
The Program does not constitute an agreement between GM and the Participant for the purchase/lease of any vehicle at a specific price. However, by purchasing a vehicle through The Program, the Participant and the sponsored purchaser acknowledge The Program’s Rules and Guidelines and agree to abide by the same program Rules and Guidelines.
Participants are required to report any unauthorized use of authorization numbers immediately. Those who do not report any suspicious or unauthorized use of authorization numbers after they have been submitted on their behalf may be subject to the above sanctions.
Failure to comply with an audit request may subject the Participant to the consequences referenced in the Program Rules section. General Motors has the final decision on all eligibility requirements. The Rules and Guidelines of The Program may be modified by GM at any time, in its sole discretion.
Compliance With Applicable Laws
If any law or regulation is adopted or interpreted which, in GM’s opinion, prohibits or penalizes the implementation of The Program, GM may, in its sole discretion, cancel The Program or any order submitted pursuant to The Program without any further obligation and without any liability to either the dealer or the Participant.
