Early last month, GM Authority covered some of the unprecedented value on offer for GM fans via the new My GM Rewards Card, including upwards of 7x points on GM purchases and 4x points everywhere else. Now, we’re once again taking a look at the GM Rewards Cards with each of the three available cards on offer.
Kicking it off is the “standard” My GM Rewards Card, which is available to approved customers and offers a variety of benefits and perks. Approved cardmembers are offered 10,000 points after spending $1,000 on the My GM Rewards Card within the first 90 days, as well as an introductory purchase APR of 0 percent for the first nine months, after which APRs range between 15.24 percent and 25.24 percent. The standard card also includes a $0 annual fee.
As covered previously, My GM Rewards Card holders receive 4 points for every $1 spent everywhere using the card, as well as 7 points for every $1 spent with GM with qualifying purchases. Cardmembers are also automatically granted Gold Tier status, while points never expire and there’s no limit on how much a Cardmember can earn or redeem toward an eligible GM vehicle.
Additionally, the program also offers the GM Extended Family Card for GM family members, which include GM employees, suppliers, or dealership employees. Critically, this card enables participants to combine Earnings with GM Employee, Dealership, or Supplier Discounts, with Earnings available for up to 7 years on accounts in good standing.
Finally, there’s the GM Business Card, which allows Cardmembers to leverage Earnings based on small business owner spending, including 5 percent for GM Genuine Parts or ACDelco parts purchases, eligible accessories, and paid Certified Service at authorized GM Dealers. Further benefits include 3 percent for fuel, dining, and office supply store purchases, as well as 1 percent for everything else.
“Any opportunity we have to engage our customer base gives us that much more propensity for someone to buy our products and services and the rewards program and card does just that,” said Director of GM Rewards and GM Card Julie Heisel in an interview with GM Authority Executive Editor Alex Luft. “It gives people a reason to use points that they already have to engage with our products and services.”
