When I got my second car in my early twenties, the first thing I did was take a road trip. The freedom, the adventure, and really just owning a car that I wasn’t embarassed to be seen in was the greatest feeling in the world.
At the time I also wanted to buy something better than what I ended up getting, but it just wasn’t possible as it would have been out of my price range. But what if there was a way to save up for your next car purchase without even having to put money away? What if you could save money for a car by actually spending money? Money you would spend anyway as part of your daily life? Well, now you can.
Last month Scotiabank and General Motors of Canada launched the new Scotiabank® GM®* VISA* Cards, marking the expansion of a strategic partnership with a suite of credit cards designed to put customers in the driver’s seat of their choice of a Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac.
With the new Scotiabank® GM®* VISA* Card it so easy to earn, or essentially save money, towards a fabulous set of wheels from any of the above auto makers. Customers can earn five per cent in GM Earnings on the first $5,000 of net purchases annually, and two per cent thereafter with no limits on earnings and no annual fee. If you’re a bit more of a high roller, with the new Scotiabank® GM®* VISA Infinite* Card, you can earn five per cent in GM Earnings on the first $10,000 of net purchases annually, and two per cent thereafter with no limits on earnings for a low annual fee of $79.
Customers can track their earnings at www.gmcard.ca and through their monthly statement. Easy to Redeem GM Earnings have no redemption limits and never expire for cardholders. One GM Earning dollar is equal to one dollar toward the purchase price or lease down payment of any eligible new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac.
So our question to you is, where would you go in your new GM wheels? Would you head east to Montreal, then keep on driving until you head out to the east coast? Or maybe you would take the adventure into the US, maybe head westward to California in search of warmer weather?
And what car would you want to take that trip in?
I’ve always loved the Corvette, and the Escalade, or maybe a truck is your jam, or if you are more into the sporty side of life, maybe the ATS coupe?
