Expanded Redemption Options for GM BuyPower® Cardmembers

Redeem Earnings for Statement Credits on purchase of vehicle care, most OnStar® and Connected Services plans and more

McLEAN, Va. (Sept. 10, 2019) – General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) and Capital One® (NYSE: COF) announced today they are dramatically expanding the ways GM BuyPower Card cardmembers can use their Earnings to get statement credits for purchases on most OnStar and Connected Services plans, SiriusXM subscriptions3, customer-paid Certified Service, and parts and accessories purchased at authorized Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac dealerships.

“More than 7.7 million people have used the GM BuyPower Card to save money on the purchase or lease of a new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac,” said Chuck Thomson, General Manager Retail Sales and Marketing Support at General Motors. “Now they can apply their Earnings from qualifying purchases made in the service lane, on accessories, on SiriusXM subscriptions, and on most OnStar and Connected Services plans for statement credits.”

Qualifying purchase examples include:

  • OnStar** Safety & Security, which includes Automatic Crash Response, Stolen Vehicle Assistance and much more. 

  • Connected Services*** Plans which include access to the vehicle’s mobile app, in-vehicle app experiences, and more. 

  • In-dealership purchases of Vehicle accessories, such as tonneau covers and bedliners for pickups, bike racks, all-weather floor mats and wheels.

  • Scheduled maintenance such as oil changes, tire rotations and battery replacement, and mechanical repairs, including brake jobs and air conditioning service at GM dealerships.

  • SiriusXM (www.SiriusXM.com) 

Cardmembers can redeem their Earnings for statement credits of up to $250 per calendar year (January 1 through December 31) for qualifying purchases on vehicle care and GM extras*. Cardmembers also accumulate five percent Earnings on their first $5,000 in purchases every year, with two percent unlimited Earnings on purchases after that. 

“I’ve been a fan of GM cars for as long as I can remember. In fact, when I’m not on the track in my racecar, you can find me cruising around in my Chevy Suburban,” said NASCAR driver Austin Dillon . “I already knew about the great ways that GM and Capital One were helping people earn savings towards their next new GM vehicle, but when I heard they were adding in new ways to redeem Earnings, I knew I had to get involved. Anyone who has their sights set on a new GM vehicle or extras for their current GM car needs to have this card in their wallet.” 

Cardmembers can earn as much as they want, whenever they want, while also enjoying World Elite MasterCard benefits (which gives cardmembers preferred access to the most exclusive offers, including VIP events, insider opportunities, special promotions and more).

BuyPower Card Earnings do not expire as long as the account is open, and can be combined with most other offers, leaving consumers with added flexibility to make vehicle decisions that fit their lifestyle. All GM dealers participate and there is no annual fee (or foreign transaction fees). Through these new alternative redemptions, Capital One and GM are working to put the power back in the buyer’s hands.

“I am excited about these new expanded redemption options that give GM car and truck lovers even more ways to get value out of their everyday purchases." said Joe Whitchurch, Head of GM Partnership at Capital One.

Capital One, N.A. is the issuer of the BuyPower Card. General Motors is responsible for the operation and administration of the Earnings program. BuyPower Card Earnings may not be used with fleet vehicle incentive programs or with some other offers and discounted sale programs, such as the GM Employee Discount or Supplier Discount.
