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.

Pricing Sheet

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 participating dealer BEFORE closing the transaction. The GM Vehicle Purchase Customer-Dealer Agreement and Pricing Sheet must be signed prior to the completion of the deal.

Documentation Fees

Dealers will be permitted to assess a maximum of $75 in documentation fees, except in these specific instances:

  • A documentation fee is specified in the applicable state law;

OR

  • Your dealership charges all customers the same documentation fee (excluding customers purchasing under the GM Employee, Military, Executive Referral and Dealership Employee programs).

Additional Information

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.
