GM Offers America’s Best Military Discount on New Vehicles


In support of our brave U.S. Military members and veterans, we’re proud to provide local Saline County shoppers exclusive access to the GM Military Discount program. Known as the auto industry’s best military offer, the GM Military Discount is how General Motors—and our Marshall car dealership—recognizes and salutes the men and women who are committed to our country.

Are you a member of the military or a retiree looking for a deal on a new car? Review General Motors Military Discount details, eligibility, and program benefits below to see how you can save thousands on your next new Chevrolet, GMC, or Buick.

GM Military Discount: Details

Eligible members approved for the General Motors Military Discount will be able to purchase or lease a new vehicle below MSRP. For extra savings, the Military Discount can even be applied on top of the GM Mobility reimbursement, GM Rewards Car Earnings, and other current GM offers and special deals provided by your GM dealer.

Applicants needn’t finance through GM Financial or at McCarthy Chevrolet Buick GMC, either. Military members may apply for and obtain a car loan through any other financial institute, bank, or lender, while still being able to take full advantage of the Military Discount.

Authentic GM accessories aren’t covered by this discount. However, we have various OEM car parts specials that may help you reduce costs.

Members will also be enrolled in the GM Rewards program, which provides points that can be redeemed to purchase GM accessories, auto service, parts, and much more.

Getting Approved: Easy as 1-2-3

GM has made it very simple to take advantage of any GMC, Buick, or Chevy Military Discount. Three steps—that’s all it takes.

  1. Shop online for the right new car, truck, or SUV at your dealership. (View our available new GM vehicles for sale in Marshall, MO.)
  2. Log in with your account to request an authorization number through GM’s official site, and bring this authorization number with you when visiting your car dealer. (Authorization numbers expire after 90 days, so please speak with a GM dealer near you prior to that expiration date.)
  3. Set up a test drive or swing by your dealership.

If there were a step four, it would be: “Drive home happier than a pig in fresh mud.”
