Ok, it has taken them HOW MANY YEARS to do this???? I stopped using the GM card because I thought they never would include Saturn. Like it was a big secret still that Saturn was part of GM.

Now get the Astra sedan here with a bigger engine (even the Balt's 148hp engine will do) and I may get one.
Saturn needs more dealers, they will never grow unless they have enough dealers.

I just received my GM Extended Family card yesterday. The interest rate is 14%; which is higher than my regular card, so I plan to use it like a gas card and pay it off each month.

This is by far the best thing GM could have ever did for Saturn.We have been on the fence for some time wanting to buy a new Vue.Now that the GM credit card points are welcome at Saturn stores this changes everything for us. Can't wait to buy our new Vue.

Don't get to excited though. The point redemption is limited. On an Astra the most you can use is $1000. I have a customer with over $3000 they wanted to use. Also it is not stackable with GM employee or GM supplier discounts. This excludes a large (very large) demographic of GM card holders. Still better off using their respective earned discounts instead of earnings, Bah Humbug!!!

if they still have the original card it is grandfathered in (issued before 2003) and they can use it all

We have always took the Extended Family car. Where did you find info on the grandfathering though? My folks have had their card for years. Please email me at dstanley@sutliff.net if you have info.

"Our cardmembers have asked for this and we're responding" years too late since we realize customers are passing up the Aura for G8's.

With the newer cards, there is no tripling of earnings to 3%, correct?

Figures they would do this three months after I bought my new Aura. lol I use my GM card for regular purchases because it has the lowest rate of all my cards. I always saw the 5% I got back from it as reflection of what I might use on a future Saturn vehicle. Always thought they would bring Saturn in all the way.

It depends on which GM Card you have. For example, if you have some version of the original "blue" GM Card, your redemption amound is not limited. However, $3500 ($500 per year for 7 years) is the maximum that you could have on that card.
