Limited-Time Offer: GM Partners with Costco

no thumb

Costco seems to sell anything and everything, from electronics to groceries. While they may not sell automobiles, they do, apparently, offer incentives and savings to their members through their Costco Auto Program.

Just as the holiday shopping season began, Costco unveiled its partnership between their Auto Program and General Motors. Through the Costco Auto Program, members will receive a Chevrolet and GMC Limited-Time Offer, allowing them to get preferred pricing on select vehicles and receive a $500 Costco Cash Card.

Between November 1 and January 3, 2012, Costco members can get preferred pricing on a purchase or lease at participating dealerships for new 2011 and 2012 models. Those models are: the Chevrolet Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe and Traverse and the GMC Acadia, Sierra, Yukon and Yukon XL.

Interested buyers must be Costco members as of October 31, 2011, and need to register to participate at or by calling 877-746-7422. Once registered, buyers will receive an authorization number and PIN that they must provide at participating dealerships. Buyers must also purchase and take delivery of their Chevrolet or GMC truck or SUV before January 3. To receive the $500 Costco Cash Card, the buyer must complete a redemption form and survey.

According to Costco, such an offer is different from any other of the many incentives currently in the market. In addition to preferred pricing and the $500 Cash Card, members can still use any currently incentives or rebates offered nationally.

Super Bowl XLVI is less than 100 days away, and everyone is already gearing up for it. Last Saturday, at the 100-days-to-go mark, the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee shared updates and program highlights at a press event. Everything is on track, they say.

Super Bowl XLVI will be held at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on February 5, 2012. The Host Committee expects 150,000 to descend upon Indianapolis for the Super Bowl. They have a number of programs planned to help revitalize Indianapolis’ Near Eastside, and to create an exciting atmosphere at the Super Bowl event itself.

One major highlight is the 20th NFL Experience, presented by GMC. Beginning January 27, the event will be held in the Indiana Convention Center and will include a variety of participatory games, displays and entertainment sessions. Fans can get autographs and watch all-time great games at the NFL Network theatre, and kids can participate in football clinics.

Other highlights that the press event covered were the Super Bowl Village, Kickoff to Rebuilt, Habitat for Humanity, and the Legacy Loop 5K and Health Bowl. Several of these events will start preliminary efforts this month as they prepare for the Super Bowl. For example, the “Kickoff to Rebuild,” an annual event, will be launched this Saturday, November 5, to help repair ten homes for elderly or low income residents. They will also begin work on a new playground for Indianapolis’ Near Eastside neighborhood.

The Legacy Loop 5K & Health Bowl also begins registration this month. The event will help raise funds for the Near Eastside Legacy Project.

Last but certainly not least, Committee announced their plans for the Super Bowl Village. Opening on January 27, the Village will include live band entertainment, a Tailgate Town, and interactive experiences.
