Dizzy Cash Back + APR Problem

Hello, I want to purchase a saturn vue. The current offer isn't so bad but because I am a college student I am eligible for the college discount so I went to this page (this is an official GM page)

https://ww w.exclusivegmoffer.com/ip-gmpop/virtual/pages/html/cgp/cgwe.html

I looked at the "2009" section and saw the vue where it says 0% apr for eligible or cash back, but if you notice next to the saturn vue it has a (3).

So what I did was scroll to the bottom of the page and read (3) it says cash can be combined with apr. I was really happy that this was possible. Or I am completely misunderstanding. Rebate + 0% interest sounds great, or to good to be true?

I went to the dealer they told me that this wasn't possible, they even browsed around and I showed them this page and I gave them my college authorization number, it was a salesmen and I think a finance manager telling me this. Should I talk to somebody higher up? Or am I wrong here? Thanks for the help.

SHORT STORY:
Found 0% and APR deal combined for college students, went to dealer and they told me it's not possible.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Well, possibly you can do some research. Such as kbb.com etc.

And maybe go right to the source: General Motors.

It says in the note you can combine bonus cash with the special APR. But if you look at the table you see there is no bonus cash for Saturns. The total cash allowance is in leiu of the apr (this isn't considered bonus cash).

The college discount is a different program. Sometimes these special programs can't be stacked onto other deals.

The college discount is just supplier pricing. You can stack either rebates OR financing on top of that, but not both--nothing special, it's just that financing and rebates are not stackable. It's one or the other.

May be something fluky on the site, but that's how it has worked and will continue to work except in special cases.
