And not only that, Generous Motors periodically will drop an additional $2,000 bonus dollars in your lap, on top of the GM Card dollars you've already accumulated. Plus whatever rebates are available. That's what got me going on maybe buying a '18 Encore AWD last June -- the possibility of getting almost $8,500 off, not even counting my trade-in. It seemed like a no-brainer. But my Cruze still runs OK, and I like it pretty well except for winter driving. And then I hemmed and hawed about whether I really wanted an SUV.....I do favor GM cars when shopping, as I carry a GM Mastercard - I've accumulated over $3K toward a new GM vehicle over the last 7 years. The rebate credits do expire after 84 months, so every month I earn some new points, but lose some old ones.
