What “qualifies” a USAA (United Services Automobile Association) member to receive the $750 manufacturer discount? The rules are somewhat vague, as USAA says that not all members qualify. But from what I’ve observed, the discount can be used by any USAA member that maintains one of USAA’s financial products, i.e. auto insurance, banking or investments.
To receive the USAA discount, you will need to provide proof to your GM dealer as GM requires dealers to show proof of all discounts applied to a purchase or lease. A copy of your current USAA auto insurance ID card is ideal and will guarantee the discount.
However, in the case the USAA member doesn’t have a USAA auto insurance ID card or doesn’t carry the USAA auto insurance, the car buyer must contact USAA directly. USAA does not accept calls from dealers or sales consultants.
To obtain a $750 GM discount from USAA without a USAA insurance ID card, the USAA member must, personally, call USAA at 1-800-531-8285. Request an ” eligibility confirmation letter and authorization number” in regards to USAA’s GM Discount Program. This letter is to be faxed to the dealer to the sale’s consultant’s attention.
USAA membership is open to U.S. military service members, veterans with an honorable discharge, and their eligible family members. USAA also offer some products to individuals with no military affiliation.
