From here, the advisor automatically provide one month of OnStar safety and security services at no cost, with an additional two months of coverage available if the owner agrees to put a credit card on file for monthly auto renewal in the plan.

GM says this offer is available on any properly equipped 2006 and newer Chevrolet vehicle with inactive OnStar service. The enrollment period ends on Jan. 23rd, 2019, so if you want to get in on this complimentary 1-3 months of free OnStar, you will want to act soon.
OnStar provides multiple assistance services including Automatic Crash Response, Roadside Assistance, Emergency Services, Crisis Assist and access to a live advisor at the push of a button.
You may not feel as though you need these services, but this complimentary offer can be beneficial to the elderly when driving in the winter or for those who become anxious driving in poor conditions such as snow and freezing rain.
OnStar is typically priced from $19 a month for the entry-level ‘Protection’ plan. A basic OnStar plan is also free for five years after the purchase of a new GM vehicle.
